Relatives still in the dark about “mystery illness”…….David Leander in Male Medical Ward.Murder accused, David Leander, called “Biscuit”, yesterday still remained in an unconscious state at the Georgetown Public Hospital.Yesterday, at the hospital, his left foot appeared to be discoloured starting from his toes and wrapped with a bandage. He was also being given oxygen and intravenous fluids.His aunt, Evelyn Estwick, said that the relatives are still being kept in the dark about her nephew’s “mystery illness”.The aunt further told this newspaper that Leander is still being kept in the male open ward even though his condition would require him to be in the Intensive Care Unit of the hospital.Estwick had told this newspaper that doctors have told her that Leander’s kidneys are failing and that his body is ‘shutting down.’But she said that medical staff who are treating her nephew continue to keep her in the dark about what may have caused his sudden illness. Chief Executive Officer for the Georgetown Hospital, Michael Khan, said that he is not involved in the clinical aspect of a patient. He added that it’s the doctor’s responsibility.He said that if the relatives are being kept in the dark they should make a formal complaint to Dr Madan Rambarran, who is in charge of all doctors at the hospital.The 26-year-old man was admitted to the GPHC last week Thursday after collapsing in his prison cell.He was first taken to the Accident and Emergency Unit where he was reportedly treated for a persistent vomiting. According to the aunt, he was also treated the previous Thursday at the GPHC after he complained of feeling unwell.Leander, along with now-dead gunman, Jermaine ‘Skinny’ Charles, were charged with the murder of Minister Satyadeow Sawh, his brother Rajpat Sawh, sister Pulmattie Persaud and security guard Curtis Robertson who were all shot dead on April 22, Joel Castro Pereira Jersey, 2006. A gang of heavily armed men had invaded the Minister’s La Bonne Intention, East Coast Demerara home.The preliminary inquiry into the murder of the former minister and his siblings is presently on hold because of Leander’s condition. The matter would be called on July 24.His attorney, James Bond, had told this newspaper that he would be attempting to meet with the minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee, in a bid to have an official investigation launched into his client’s sudden illness.

As compared to a year or two ago when gunmen ran amuck on villages and law enforcement officials in ‘C’ division and more specifically on East Coast Demerara, crime is now steadily decreasing.According to ‘C’ Division Commander, Balram Persaud, ranks now conduct searches in villages without much concern for safety and rebellion.He recalled that just after the jailbreak, when five notorious prisoners escaped from the Camp Street jail, many villages especially Buxton was held hostage by these criminal elements.Persaud said that police ranks in his district must be credited with riding the village of these colourful characters.He said that Buxton is now one of the most stable villages on the East Coast and other villages are now assuming the notorious role that once characterised that village.Persaud said that now police are called upon to conduct regular raids in the villages of Melanie Damishana and Bare Root on the East Coast.He said that notwithstanding that, Jarrad Davis Jersey, the police have been able to ensure a great degree of security and peace in those areas.Persaud said that persons who have intentions to gravitate to criminal acts are aware that police patrols are frequent in those areas so they are less likely to make such moves. He said that he did not want to create the impression that crime does not exist in that division, but the crime is nothing in comparison to what obtained in the past.Persaud said the effectiveness of the police in the district is evident with the arrest of a suspect in Bare Root who was wanted for the murder of a Melanie Damishana resident.Additionally, the Commander said that ‘C’ Division has one of the highest clear up rate (85%) for murder, not only in Guyana but the world over.This, he said, can be attributed to the hard work and relentless dedication of the majority of ranks in that district.However, he acknowledged that there are questionable ranks that are still apart of the force but excesses by these individuals will not be tolerated and will be met with the sternest possible disciplinary measure.

A 63-three-year-old limping woman was hauled before a magistrate on Monday after she was allegedly found with a quantity of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking.Patsy Baptist, who resides at Lot 963, Tanoh Kpassagnon Jersey, 16th Street, Diamond, East Bank Demerara, denied the allegation that on April 30, she had 16 grammes of marijuana in her possession for the purpose of trafficking.The differently-abled woman pleaded not guilty to the charge after it was read to her by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry.The prosecution told the court that on the day in question, around 14:30hrs, ranks from the narcotics branch of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) went to the home of the defendant and conducted a search. The illicit drug was found in a hat in Baptist’s bedroom.According to the police, under caution, the woman confessed to having “purchased the drug to sell and make a living”. She was arrested and charged for the offence.However, her attorney, Nigel Hughes, argued that the substance was not found in his client’s possession. The lawyer said that the home is occupied by several persons and the drug could have belonged to any of them.Hughes contended that there is no way possible that the woman could be involved in selling the drug because she is not physically capable.Bail was refused for the defendant because her attorney failed to advance special reasons to satisfy the court.

– Roman Catholic PriestBy Leon SuseranA high- ranking Roman Catholic priest believes that he knows one of the reasons for Guyanese men erupting with such violence against their partners.Monsignor Terrence Montrose told Kaieteur News that the male child has been socialised and pressured by society to act in a way that says, “boys don’t cry.”Eureka GarrawayRhonda ThompsonMonsignor Terrence MontroseHe suggested that when they cannot hold in their emotions any longer, they may release their pain through violence.Msgr Montrose, a religious leader for 35 years, said that society has been so socialised to think that men don’t have a ‘softer side’… “to believe that all men are brawn, are hard, are emotionless and that is how we have been living our lives…so men, when they are crying inside, they keep it to themselves— they bear the pain and sometimes, that pain comes out in violence”.The priest noted that men have not been taught to cry. He said that men are told— from the time they are little boys— if they cry, ‘don’t be a little girl’— “you are not encouraged to give or show your emotion in public and therefore, we keep it inside and we burn inside and when we do act, we act in a very violent way”.Msgr Montrose reminded that, in the newspapers are stories of men who kill their wives. “Almost every single day, some woman, some lover, some partner dies at the hands of the one she loves—every day”. He added that women’s throats are being slit, “of women being hammered to death, of women dying by burns, by fight— all kinds of things, at the hands of the ones they called their beloved”.The priest referred to the popular Sparrow Calypso which said, “every now and again, beat them, beat them” and how some women have told him “that the man doesn’t love me until he beats me”. “Well, in a sense, we have been socialised in such a way, that we men mustn’t cry, we don’t cry— if our beloved leaves us or plans to leave us, we can’t take it— we hammer her to death; if I can’t have you, no one else can have you; and we say that men don’t cry”.But he said that in reality, he has experienced many men crying, because “I am the one who has to give a listening ear to all these stories”. Msgr Montrose, who has ministered to a number of communities across the country stated, too, that he has heard and seen men cry because they can’t bring it out in public as a woman would do.“Women cry very easily; they give an expression to the emotion they are feeling, whether those are tears of happiness or sadness, they don’t hold it back, they let it flow”. But men, on the other hand, have been encouraged not to let it (the tears) flow; “hide it, keep it inside and it does something to us; it begins to eat away inside and we become violent, and we become hard- hearted and then the rest of society asks, ‘What has happened to this man?’”Young men, today, he said are an endangered species, because “they have no one to call them home…their fathers, perhaps, don’t know how to treat the son”. He said that while he has not fathered any children, he is the (spiritual) father of many children and “one of the things I do with them is to help them with the tools of my trade”.Speaking specifically to fathers since Father’s Day was observed on Sunday, Msgr Montrose said that many young men never had the opportunity to have a father. “I have had the good fortune of being the father to many young men; they have to learn from us how to be men, we have to teach them how to act as men, as fathers, as husbands and sometimes I say to women, ‘you are to blame, because you, too don’t help them young men to be men”.He said that it is such that many fathers do not even know how to teach their own sons to be men, “where they may have grown up in a situation where they do not know these things; their father didn’t know; their grandfather didn’t know; nobody knew, so how do you expect them (the young men of today) to know these things if they have not been taught?” Women, he said, have an important task in moulding and training young men.Men, he said, do not know to explain ‘men’ things to their sons; “maybe they were ashamed, maybe they couldn’t find the right words, maybe their sons would laugh at them, but they weren’t able to say to their son, ‘son this is what would happen to you; you are now a teenager— this will happen to you— I know the women do that with their daughters…but I don’t think fathers do that”.It is important, he said, that men take the responsibility of training our children, helping them to mature and teaching them what it means to be a ‘Christian father’”.So are these men who horribly murder their spouses and lovers a product of their own society?“Let’s suppose a woman’s husband beats her up and her boy is there (witnessing the act)…I don’t know if she says to the boy, “that is not normal that my husband is beating me up”, Carlton Fisk White Sox Jersey, but if she says nothing, her son will say it is normal, so she has to keep showing him (the boy) it’s the wrong way”.Socialisation especially as it relates to our young boys, he said, is “very, very important”.Still, Msgr Montrose does not believe it is an excuse for domestic violence.“It’s no excuse for what they do…they have to learn to deal with their emotions. The society has to start teaching differently that it is alright for men to cry, to talk about their softer side”. He noted that women go and talk to their friends and neighbours, but men keep their feelings inside and “we need to pay attention to that”. The women, he said, can help in that regard by talking to their partners and getting them to open up.Those in authority, he said, can and must act quickly, lest more women face the hammer, knife and continue to be the punching bags for emotionally- distressed men. “I think they need to do something very quickly, because every single day, it’s getting worse and worse”.Women experiencing signs of and bouts of abuse with their partners should leave the relationship immediately, says the priest. “They see (the signs)….but I don’t know what keeps them there…they don’t see the signs and perhaps we (as a society) should talk about the signs….from the time your boyfriend knocks you and punches you, that’s the time to go (or) it gets worse and worse”.There has been a spike in domestic violence in recent months, with men reportedly being the main perpetrators.In April, Eureka Garraway of Prashad Nagar, Georgetown, sustained head injuries after she was allegedly beaten by her partner.The alleged perpetrator has been charged.Earlier this month, Mohanie Gobin of Parika, Essequibo Coast, mother of four was clubbed to death with a metal pipe by her husband, Ramesh Sattaur. He ingested a poisonous substance and died shortly after.In February 2011, 41- year- old Natalie Loncke, a teacher of Georgetown was repeatedly stabbed to the head by her lover.  Her throat was also slit.Last January, Rushelle Rodney, 33, was discovered lying in a pool of blood, in the kitchen of her Blankenburg Executive Housing Scheme, West Coast Demerara house.The woman’s husband, 34-year-old Shawn Rodney, is still to be located.Last June, Onderneeming, West Berbice hairdresser, 32- year- old Rhonda Thompson was found dead in her home. Her throat had been slashed.Her husband, Kensley Thompson, the prime suspect, was found at the backdam area in the village the following morning. He had slashed himself and ingested a poisonous substance.He succumbed shortly after.
