Residents of the interior gateway community of Bartica are appealing to the maritime authorities to step up monitoring of passengers boats serving the Bartica/Parika route to reduce the number of river mishaps that are presently occurring.The appeal comes in the wake of another mishap in the Essequibo River last Sunday in which a young woman disappeared and is feared dead.But although Sunday’s mishap occurred as a result of damage to the bottom of the boat, the residents are adamant that negligence and a wanton disregard for the safety of passengers are the major reasons for several river tragedies.Speaking to this newspaper yesterday, one concerned resident said that in most cases the operators of boats plying the Parika/Bartica route would load their vessels with a lot of heavy duty mining equipment and cargo in addition to a full load of passengers for the one and a half hour trip.Some of these equipment consist of engines those sometimes weigh several hundred pounds.“You have to be here to see what is going on. The monitors are there but I don’t know what is happening, ” the concerned resident said.The resident said that the boat operators are motivated to carry the extra weight by accepting several thousand dollars from uncaring miners.The residents pointed to another mishap which occurred on January 3, which fortunately did not claim any lives.In that incident, the boat, which was loaded with passengers and heavy duty mining equipment, developed engine problems almost in the middle of the Essequibo River.Because of the weight which was at the back of the vessel, the passengers were able to cling unto the bow until the boat was pulled to the safety of the river bank.Needless to say, several thousand dollars in passengers’ cargo was lost.“We are not saying that the boats must not fetch cargo but at least they should monitor the weight and reduce the amount of passengers if the need arises, ” another resident stated.He added that in the case of mining equipment, miners should charter special boats which will not carry passengers on such trips.“The river is not like a road where you can be rescued almost immediately, Harry Kane Hotspur Jersey UK, ” the Bartica resident said.

Auto dealer, Nigel Ramah, 33, of 18 Chateau Margot, East Coast Demerara, is in shock. About 10:30 hours, yesterday, he lost a black shoulder bag containing $1.6 million, five minutes after leaving it stashed in his Ford F-150 vehicle.At the time the vehicle was parked in the Guyana Revenue Authority’s (GRA) parking lot on Camp Street.Kaieteur News understands that Ramah had just withdrawn the money from a city bank before heading to GRA to pay duty on a vehicle. He went up to the GRA building leaving the money in the vehicle. It is unclear why he left the money behind instead of taking it in to transact his business.After some five minutes of being in the building, Ramah returned only to be greeted with a broken left side door lock and his ‘bag of money’ missing.Yesterday when a Kaieteur News reporter visited the scene, the obviously baffled Ramah was surrounded by GRA workers as they tried to make sense of what had happened. He was advised to make a report to the police, which he did.Some workers on spot speculated that Ramah never had the money and “is just trying to set people up.” One person said that he was known to be going through some financial crisis and this might be the cause for him claiming such a loss.They also accused him of “bullying” the guard to park in the parking lot after claiming he was a staff member. The parking lot is just for GRA staff. It is unclear why the security guard did not raise an alarm after being “bullied” by Ramah.Ramah in his defense denied those claims. He said that he never told the guard he was a staff member. He was also flabbergasted by the statements made about him not being in possession of the money. “I made the transaction at the Camp Street Republic Bank, Josh Reynolds Jersey, and the bank can verify that with them.”Ramah was forced to drive his violated vehicle to the police station as GRA senior staff advised that it was illegal for the vehicle to even be in the parking lot in the first place.The shaken auto dealer is adamant that the security guard and other workers at the parking lot know about how his money disappeared. Before leaving the parking lot Ramah was heard demanding that every vehicle be checked for his “bag of money”, but these demands were ignored as GRA staff rushed him out the lot. Investigations are continuing.Meanwhile $6M in foreign liquor has been reported to be missing from the GRA warehouse facility in Eccles, East Bank Demerara. A private security guard service has been implicated after surveillance footage was reviewed. Commissioner General of the GRA, Khurshid Sattaur, has assured that the agency will spare no effort bringing perpetrators to justice.

Two brothers of the late Afroze Ali, the woman who was found dead in a cemetery at Zeelugt, East BankOne of the dead woman’s brothers, Mohamed Rasheed.Essequibo, are optimistic that the law of the land will prevail,   so that the person or persons guilty of killing her is/are brought to justice swiftly.Speaking to this newspaper yesterday, Mohamed Rasooal, one of the woman’s brothers, said that while his sister had personal issues which she was battling to deal with, she was a very kind and pleasant person.Rasooal, a businessman who resides in Trinidad, said that it was unbelievable that he had to return to bury his sister, even as he recounted that it was just recently that she had visited him.“We had such a good time…I took her to Tobago and she had such a good time.”The time away was a vacation well spent, since according to him, his sister had usually spent her time caring for their mother who is currently ailing from cancer.The 40-year-old woman was the fifth of nine siblings and a mother of four, Mohamed Rasooal said. He revealed that his sister and a number of other relatives lived at a house at Zeelugt which he had bought for his mother.“I was always in contact with them…Many people looked at her and believed that she didn’t have family and circumstances caused that…because of alcohol and drug abuse she was out of it at times, but she was the nicest person, ” Mohamed Rasooal reminisced.He pointed out that while the police have been doing a relatively good job, Claudio Bravo Barcelona Jersey, even capturing two suspects, he will not be satisfied until “someone his charged with the crime that cost my sister her life.”He referred to reports that one of the individuals in custody was in fact found guilty and served jail time for a similar crime.“We knew of this since we were young, but growing up around a person sometimes causes you to trust them and feel comfortable with them, and I believe that it was trusting a familiar face that led to my sister’s death, ” the man lamented.And while the brothers insist that they will not interfere with the judicial process they said that they will remain resolutely behind the matter to ensure that it does not become a cold case. They are confident that the police have enough evidence in their possession to bring a satisfactory end to the case.According to Mohamed Rasheed, another brother, who resides in the United States, there are reports of several cases in the same East Bank Essequibo village that have remained unsolved, and as a result “we are prepared to put all of our time and resources into solving this one….it is not just about our sister this could have happened to anybody…it could have been anybody’s relative. If we don’t ensure that criminals are brought to justice then they are going to take over the country because they will feel that they can do as they like, ” said a distraught Rasheed.Members of the Tuschen Community Policing Group early Wednesday morning captured a man who is considered the main suspect in last Sunday’s murder at Zeelugt, .According to reports, the man who has been identified only as ‘Sunny’ was found hiding in an abandoned house in the Tuschen New Scheme. He was caught by members of the Community Policing Group and subsequently handed over to the ranks of the Leonora Police Station.They also arrested a second man identified as Anthony Albert, 57, late Wednesday afternoon.  Both Sunny and Albert were said to be drug addicts. Eyewitnesses said that the now dead woman was in the company of the two men just before she died.A post mortem examination revealed that she died as a result of asphyxiation due to manual strangulation compounded with blunt trauma to the head. The post mortem was done Wednesday at the Ezekiel Funeral home by Government Pathologist, Dr. Nehaul Singh. Samples were taken from the woman’s vaginal area for further testing.Ali was found half-naked on Sunday at around 11:00 hours after ‘Sunny’ informed the woman’s relatives that she was dead and in the burial ground. Shortly after relatives confirmed what ‘Sunny’ told them, the man vanished. A shallow grave, believed to have been freshly dug, was found near the woman’s body.MARGINALISED AND HUMILIATEDHaving learnt of their sister’s demise the brothers immediately planned their trip to Guyana to bury their sister. But according to them their grief was compounded when they were “marginalized and humiliated” by customs officers as they passed through the Cheddi Jagan International Airport.According to them not only were they asked to step aside while other passed undisturbed, every piece of their luggage was searched as if they were “terrorists” despite the fact that they had nothing to declare.“I was a little distance from my brother and so apparently when he came to me for his reading glasses they seemed to think that we had some plans…I don’t know what they said, but the way they treated us it made us feel marginalized and humiliated, ” said Mohamed Rasooal.Mohamed Rasheed stressed: “I felt humiliated and discriminated against in my own country…at a time like this, they are treating you like you are a criminal.”
