Attorney General, Anil Nandlall, has responded to an article that quotes Member of ParliamentAttorney General, Anil Nandlallfor the Alliance for Change, Khemraj Ramjattan, as calling on the Attorney General to prosecute an inefficient consultant on the Amaila Falls road project.We publish his response.I wish to respond to the front page headline of Kaieteur News, Tuesday edition, March 20, 2012 viz:Amaila Falls $15.4M road project…Clear evidence of inefficiency exists “…AG must prosecute or face no-confidence motion” – Ramjattan and to the Article in relation thereto published on page 6, and continued on page 17, of that edition of the Kaieteur News.I set out hereunder my response.(1)         ;  It is not the function of the Attorney General to prosecute anyone or entity; that is the exclusive function of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Indeed, the Constitution clearly provides that in the discharge of the functions of that office, the Director of Public Prosecutions cannot be the subject of anyone’s direction or control.  The Attorney General, therefore, cannot direct the Director of Public Prosecutions which matters to prosecute.(2)         ;  Even if the Attorney General is empowered to prosecute, Mr. Ramjattan is requesting that I prosecute, because according to him there is “clear evidence of inefficiency”.  “Inefficiency” is not an offence for which one can be prosecuted under the laws of Guyana.  One would expect that as an experienced legal practitioner, Mr. Ramjattan ought to have, at least, a fleeting acquaintance with these rudimentary legal principles.  It is patently obvious that this is not the case.(3)         ;  I observe that Mr. Ramjattan in his tirade, omits to inform Kaieteur News that Mrs. Cathy Hughes, an executive member of the Alliance for Change and a Member of Parliament for the Alliance for Change, is (or at least was), the Public Relations Officer of Synergy Holdings Inc.  I hope that Mrs. Hughes will also be the subject of Mr. Ramjattan’s No Confidence Motion.(4)         ;  If any inquiry or proper inquiry was made by Mr. Ramjattan, he would have found that when Synergy Holdings Inc. instituted proceedings against the State and obtained certain Conservatory Orders which prevented the State from taking into possession certain assets used by Synergy Holdings Inc. on the project, it was the Attorney General, who appeared in person and successfully   presented legal submissions which resulted in the discharge of those Conservatory Orders.(5)         ;  A press release was made by the Office of the Attorney General in relation to this issue and sent to every media house in Guyana.  Unfortunately, it did not find expression in the Kaieteur News, although when the Orders were granted, the story was carried over several days as a front page feature in the Kaieteur News.(6)         ;  Additionally, a claim has been filed by the Attorney General against Synergy Holdings Inc. on the 9th day of March, 2012, in which the Attorney General is claiming, inter alia, damages in excess of $1, 000, 000 (one million dollars) as general damages for breach of contract, and special damages in the sum of US$3, 880, 029.80. These proceedings are pending in the Commercial Division of the High Court.(7)         ;  I feel obliged to comment upon what I consider to be the real motive of Mr. Ramjattan’s constant criticisms of me.  He has, without any lawful basis or any reasonable grounds, called for my resignation in relation to the role I played in dismantling the persons who unlawfully presided over the administration of cricket in Guyana.  He is again, without any lawful basis or reasonable grounds, Dale Murphy Braves Throwback Jersey, calling for my resignation.

Despite a public outcry by tutors of the Georgetown School of Nursing to stop the ad hoc admission of students, the Health Ministry, yesterday, admitted 65 students to the already overcrowded school.Georgetown School of NursingThe institution’s seven tutors did not lecture to the new attendees on the premise that they work between 8:00 hrs and 16:30 hrs and because the new students are members of the evening classes. They believe that it is unfair for them to lecture both day and night shifts. During the day shift the tutors lecture to a student population of 494.It is unknown how long the new students would attend classes without being taught but the tutors are determined not to teach until the Ministry and the Guyana Public Service Union reach a favourable decision on the matter.According to a tutor, the school was formally made aware of the new students via a letter, Cheap NFL Jerseys China, last Thursday, from the Ministry. The school has written in response to that letter explaining why the school cannot accommodate more students. One of the primary reasons is the shortage of staff.They claimed that the Ministry’s Permanent Secretary, Leslie Cadogan, visited the school yesterday and promised to talk with Health Minister, Bheri Ramsaran and Chief Executive Officer of the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation, Michael Khan on the issue of staffing.The tutors stated that they care for the current students and want to see them excel.The presence of the additional students would hinder current students from getting the adequate attention needed to pass their final exams.
