Guyana is bound to face a number of lawsuits given that the country remains in violation of theFormer Attorney General Anil Nandlallrevised Treaty of Chaguaramas.Former Attorney General, (AG) and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall expressed this view, in light of disclosures made by the country’s current AG, Basil Williams.While addressing the National Assembly on Friday, Williams told the House of yet another financial obligation which the PPP administration did not honour, leaving the country in an awful state of economic disrepair.Williams said that the discovery was made during a recent visit to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).  The AG said that he was informed that Guyana is yet to honor its financial obligation as it relates to the outcome of a matter with the Suriname Company Rudisa Beverage Company.  The Court awarded the Suriname Company some $1.2B  (US$6M) which had been collected as an environmental tax in contravention of the Revised Treaty of Chaguaramas which requires equal treatment of products and services from all Caricom member countries.  But the PPP, two years later, never honoured the obligation.Williams also revealed that $57M which was judiciously awarded to Trinidad Cement Limited (TCL) when it won a case against the PPP government is also yet to be paid. He questioned whether the former AG (Anil Nandlall) can provide an answer as to why his government did not pay the sums.Attorney General, Basil WilliamsResponding to the allegations yesterday Nandlall issued a statement which noted that the matter between the Caribbean Court of Justice in a case filed against the State of Guyana by Rudisa Beverage Company of Suriname has been in the public domain, even as it unfolded before the court.“It boggles the mind that the Attorney General made this “discovery” by chance when I repeatedly and ad nauseam made this information public,  both when the judgement was awarded, as well as on numerable times thereafter, ” Nandlall stressed.The former AG noted that he sought to have the matter addressed on numerous occasions. He said that as he spoke on the matter, “I explained why, and on what basis, this judgment was granted.”Nandlall claims that during the hearing of the case, the Rudisa Company undertook before the CCJ, that were Guyana to remove from its laws, the offensive provisions, Wholesale Jerseys Paypal, they would withdraw their case.As a result, he said that the necessary amendments to the Customs Act were tabled in the National Assembly, by the then Finance Minister, Dr. Ashni Singh, on two occasions, but both times, the joint opposition, which held a majority in the National Assembly, voted against the amendments.Nandlall pointed out that it was, in fact Williams, Khemraj Ramjattan and Carl Greenidge, who addressed the House emphatically against the amendments, on both occasions.“In both instances, I explained to the House that the case is pending at the CCJ, and if the amendments are not passed, judgement will be granted against Guyana. My appeals fell on deaf ears.” he added.According to Nandlall the truth is that Guyana is liable to face many more lawsuits once the country remains in violation of the revised Treaty of Chaguaramas.He said that it would therefore be prudent if the current AG could ensure that Guyana complies with its Treaty obligations, rather than engage in political ramblings on this issue.Nandlall also claims no award was made by the CCJ with regard to “the second “debt” referred to by Williams.In relation to 57 million Guyana dollars which was awarded against the State in a matter brought by Trinidad Cement Limited, the former AG explained that the only monetary order made in that matter relates to costs and it is nothing close to that amount.

Police ranks who repeatedly absent themselves from court without a valid reason will be interdicted from duty.The warning came from Commissioner of Police Henry Greene, during an address yesterday to ranks at the Force’s annual mid-year awards ceremony to mark the organisation’s 172nd anniversary.“Once we realize that you have deliberately stayed away from court, with all sorts of frivolous excuses, you will be charged and interdicted from duty. I’m warning you now, send the word through, ” the Commissioner told his ranks.Greene said that there is no doubt that in the area of prosecution there have been difficulties for the Guyana Police Force. He stated that not only police witnesses are absent from time to time, but civilian witnesses are also delinquent in this regard.According to Greene, China Jerseys Wholesale, in some cases the civilian witnesses are compromised.“There are lots of other witnesses who get paid off…who don’t come because they are paid off, and they hide, all sorts of schemes. And cases are dismissed, not necessarily because of the poor police prosecution, ” the Commissioner said.He explained that the Force has been making significant efforts to train its prosecutors.“They’re not lawyers, but they’ve had some amount of training, and invariably some police ranks are absent… and many times it’s in the Magistrate’s judgement that even though we feel that a prima facie case has been made out, the Magistrate feels otherwise and dismisses the case, ” Greene said.The situation impacts negatively on justice for the victims of criminal activity as well as the accused, who have to spend months on remand as a result of the tardiness of some police ranks.
