Commissioner of Police Henry Greene has said that the move by the Administration to introduce polygraph testing in the force is welcomed.Responding to the question recently by media operatives about the move, Greene said he believes it is a very sensible move.He pointed out that in almost every Caribbean country polygraph testing is required before being employed, and now that it is being implemented in the force he has no problem with it.Asked if he feels this would be a deterrent for persons desirous of joining the Police Force, Jeff Zatkoff Penguins Jersey, Greene said no.“Already as it is, persons have many other reasons why they wouldn’t want to join the force, so to say this would be a deterrent is not really accurate, ” Greene added.He further explained that the force has not yet met with the administration to discuss at what point and for whom the polygraph test would be required, but the move is very much welcomed.When asked what this would mean for senior officers who would have served the force for several years, Greene maintained that the initiative is welcomed.Meanwhile in the past several other employees of various organisations have been subjected to polygraph testing.Among those were the employees of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU). When it was found that several of the employees failed the test they were sent home.The then head of CANU Orville Nedd and some eight other employees were sent packing.It has since been reported that polygraph testing has already begun in the police force, and has been going on for the past three days.Members of the Guyana Revenue Authority have already been notified that they are to undergo the tests. They were supposed to attend a briefing session at Office of the President yesterday. However, that briefing session was postponed.

He was shot.On Tuesday, Salim was committed to stand trial at the conclusion of a preliminary inquiry which was conducted by Magistrate Krisendat Persaud at the Springlands Magistrate’s court.The murdered policeman was found slumped in his car on a desolate stretch of road at Jackson Creek, Upper Corentyne with two bullet wounds to his head.The case for the prosecution which was led by police Superintendent Robert Tyndall, who was specially appointed to prosecute the matter, was that sometime between September 13 and September 14, 2012 at Jackson Creek, Bacchus murdered Detective Constable Jirahan Diananand.Bacchus was represented by Attorneys at Law Ramesh Rajkumar and Mursalene Bacchus.The story came to light after three men were arrested following a carjacking incident at the same Jackson Creek on the Upper Corentyne. Two of them were arrested by the West Berbice police. They were Salim Bacchus’ nephews. They were held with another youth and subsequently admitted to the carjacking.After intense grilling by investigators they also admitted to knowing about the killing of Detective Diananand. They implicated Bacchus as the gunman. They allegedly told investigators that Bacchus shot Diananand twice in the head after a pre arranged deal went sour.A wanted bulletin was issued for his arrest and Bacchus accompanied by Attorney at Law Rajkumar turned himself in to the CID office at Central Police Station, New Amsterdam.During the trial, prosecution star witnesses Azim Seegobin and Azam Bacchus, Troy Polamalu College Jersey, two nephews of Bacchus gave their evidence in chief and related the sequence of events of what transpired on the fateful night and after. They were cross examined.Also during the P.I the two sides had a number of issues, including the defence demanding a copy of the statement of one of the prosecution’s star witness who had admitted under cross examination that he had refreshed his memory from the statement before he entered the witness box.The prosecution complied.Bacchus is the brother of Azad Bacchus, also known as ‘AK 472 , who was killed in a shootout with the Berbice Anti-Smuggling Squad (BASS) in 2001. He and three other men were previously charged in connection with a 40 kilogrammes cocaine bust in November 2011.Bacchus was acquitted in June 2012 but the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) appealed the acquittal.

– Pegasus owner rubbishes claim, calls Brassington a fraudsterHead of National Industrial and Commercial Investments Limited (NICIL), Winston Brassington, stronglyNICIL Head, Winston Brassingtoninsisted yesterday that the US$58M Marriott Hotel has at no point in time, been funded with taxpayers’ monies.Brassington, during a press conference held at the unfinished complex, told media operatives that in the meantime, NICIL, as the principal owner of Atlantic Hotel Inc., “has from its own resources, earned directly from the sale of investments owned by NICIL or dividend returns from its investments, and not from taxpayers’ money. It provided bridge financing to an amount of US$16M for the completion of the construction of the hotel.â€�He said that NICIL will be reimbursed in accordance with the financial arrangements originally projected.Brassington was then pressed to say what exactly NICIL sold in order to finance the construction of the hotel. He claimed that while it was not intended for that purpose, some of the proceeds from the sale of the 20 percent interest in the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph Company were invested into the project. He said, too, that dividends from different investments in state-owned entities and others in which NICIL has a minority interest were also used.Brassington asserted that every dollar invested in the hotel is well spent. He said that NICIL, and by extension, AHI’s financial transactions are subject to full public disclosure and scrutiny, and audited by the Audit Office of Guyana and presented for Parliamentary review.Pegasus Owner, Robert BadalHowever, Pegasus Hotel owner Robert Badal has described Brassington’s statements as “utter rubbishâ€�. The businessman said that now more than ever, DeAngelo Williams Steelers Jersey, he will continue to hold the position that “the Marriott Hotel was conceived in fraud and executed by a fraudster.â€�Badal told Kaieteur News last night that he strongly believes that the project is not a viable one and he has even sought to make a public call for President Donald Ramotar to ensure that the AHI head is slapped with fraud charges.As for Brassington’s claim that the hotel is funded with NICIL proceeds and not taxpayers’ dollars, Badal says that this constitutes “a gross insult to the basic god-given common sense of the nation.â€�The hotelier insists that taxpayers funded the entire project. He reiterated that the NICIL head is “nothing but a fraudster.â€�
