– calls renewed for removal of Minister Persaud, Joe Singh Small and medium scale miners are resolute that the disrespect meted out to them by Government must end. They are determined to fight the odds for the industry’s continued growth because it is too big to fail.These sentiments were expressed at the Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners’ Association (GGDMA) 29th Annual General Meeting, where calls were made for the removal of Major General (retired) Joe Singh as Chairman of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission Board and Robert Persaud, Minister of Natural Resources and Environment.President of GGDMA, Patrick HardingThe meeting was held on Friday at Regency Suites. Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, Joustin Mackenzie, Commissioner of Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC), Karen Livan and other top ranking GGMC Officials, who were part of the gathering, were not allowed to speak.The rift between policy makers and miners was evident as the woes of the industry were amplified.To combat these hardships, the Association has adopted a new motto, “One for All…All for One”. This approach has attracted the support of the Guyana Women Miners’ Organization (GWMO).But, even with a collective voice, the industry needs the technical support of the GGMC and by extension Government’s intervention for its continuity.According to the President of GGDMA, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, Patrick Harding, the future of the industry is uncertain owing to the probability of mercury being banned next year. Small and medium scale miners use mercury in gold recovery but this will halt since it will not be supplied next year.There is a need for an inexpensive alternative method to recover gold from the sluice box, he added. Tests being executed by GGMC to find alternative methods were acknowledged but Harding stressed that they will not be ready for 2013.However, access to lands is also becoming difficult. He disclosed that GGMC is refusing to accept fees for lands that fall in areas earmarked for Amerindian land extension. It was noted that the Association had filed an injunction in Court to have GGMC reverse this. However, this is not being adhered to by GGMC.According to GWMO’s President, Simona Broomes, this action by GGMC is grave disrespect to GGDMA and miners. She stressed that the lands “do not belong to Persaud but Guyanese”, as such, miners will not beg for lands to mine.However, according to Broomes, this is not the only time miners have been disrespected. Broomes, who called for Singh’s removal, said that recommendations put forward by miners to the Special Land Use Committee and submitted to cabinet under Bharrat Jagdeo’s leadership, were not accepted.The GGMC has also stopped registration for new river claims. According to Harding, mining in the rivers has been done for years. Within recent years miners have invested largely in technology to mine in the river.He explained that the new technology that is being used to trap gold and diamond does minimal damage to the river. The Association is ready to work with an organization to lessen the impact on the river since miners could mine for 30 years in the river.Harding related that in 2009, GGMC was restricted from auctioning state lands. He stated that there are illegal mining activities in some of these areas that are being withheld but the relevant agency is not executing its works effectively.Miners at GGMDA’s Annual General Meeting yesterdayCrime, violence, trafficking in persons and other illegal activities were cited as the other hindrances in the mining industry. Harding assured that the Association had held talks with GGMC to ascertain how illegal shops could be tackled. The Association also met with the Guyana Police Force but that was unfruitful.According to Harding, the police made it clear that reducing criminal activities in the mining industry would be difficult since there are insufficient ranks available.Swift actions by the Force and Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee are being demanded by GGDMA. He emphasized that GGDMA is ready to work with the police once they setup more outposts.Other challenges to the industry are improper roads and infrastructure. He said that monies are being allocated yearly to rehabilitate roads but shoddy works are being delivered by contractors. Harding stressed that it is time roads are constructed to acceptable engineering standards and proper maintenance is done.

Attorney at Law Murseline Bacchus has successfully challenged the amendment to the Sexual Amendment Act in the High Court. He challenged a Magistrate’s decision to commit his client to stand trial in the High Court on the amended Sexual Offences act.Mr. Bacchus, on behalf of his client, Ray Bacchus, had moved to the court for an order or rule nisi of certiorari directed to the Director of Public Prosecution, the Commissioner of Police and Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus herself, to show cause why her decision to commit Ray Bacchus to stand trial for the offence of rape should not be quashed on the grounds that the committal is null, void, unlawful and unconstitutional.The matter was heard before Chief Justice Ian Chang who heard arguments from Bacchus, the Director of Public Prosecution and submissions from the Magistrate.Ray Bacchus, a father of three, of St. John Street, New Amsterdam, and a driver attached to A. Ally & Sons, NFL Jerseys From China, Main Street, New Amsterdam, Berbice, was charged on August 28, 2013 for engaging in sexual penetration of a child of 14.Attorney at Law Bacchus, stated that his client was charged indictably on January 3, 2014 contrary to section 10 (1) (a) of the Sexual Offences Act No.7 of 2010 as was amendedHe was tried by Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs- Marcus at the New Amsterdam Magistrate court and after the filing of statements by the Prosecution; the Magistrate committed him to stand trial on the said charge.Attorney at Law Bacchus in his petition had submitted that he was not permitted cross-examination of the witness whose statements were filed by the Prosecution. Nor was his client permitted to give evidence or call any witness in the proceedings before he was committed.Bacchus further contended that the committal of his client was null, void and of no legal effect and is contrary to his fundamental right under article 144(2) (d) and (e) of the Constitution of the Republic of Guyana, and the committal is unlawful and of no legal effect and ought to be quashed.He also contended that the said committal cannot be used for the purpose of a lawful indictment by the Director of Public Prosecution against his client.He also submitted that the provisions of that part of the Sexual Offences Act, which purports to give jurisdiction and power to the Magistrate to commit him for the trial is unconstitutional and of no legal effect, as it is inconsistent with his client’s right under article 141 (1), 144 (2) (d) and (e) of the Constitution, and that to such inconsistency it is void by the provisions of article 8 of the Constitution. He also believes that  Act No 2/13 which purports to amend the said Sexual Offences Act is itself void as being inconsistent with the provision of Article 144 (2) (d) and (e) of the Constitution of Guyana.When the act was amended in 2010 it read- “For the purpose of a paper committal, only the evidence of the Prosecution shall be allowed.” After this was thrown out by the courts it was amended to read, “For the purpose of a paper committal, credible evidence of the Prosecution and the defence shall be allowed.” The new law takes away the right of the client to call and cross examine witnesses for the defence.Both the DPP and the Magistrate made submissions relying on the amendments made to the Act in defending their case.Mr. Bacchus quoted a number of authorities in putting forward his case for the committal to be quashed.The Chief Justice, after listening to both sides, gave a detailed conclusion in which he looked at the evidence presented before him and what is provided for in the Constitution. He stated that Section 43 of the Sexual Offences Act 2010- provided that, “where a person is charged with an offence under the Act, there shall be no oral preliminary inquiry and instead, a paper committal shall be held in accordance with the procedure set out in the first schedule.”However, this act is inconsistent with article 144(1) and 144(2) of the Constitution which reads, “Every person who is charged with a criminal offence-shall be permitted to defend him or herself before the court in person or by a legal representative or his or her own choice.”“The person shall be afforded facilities to examine in person or by his or her legal representative the witnesses presented by the Prosecution before the court, to obtain the attendance and carry out the examination of witnesses to testify on his or her behalf before the court on the conditions as those applying to witnesses called by the Prosecution.”The Chief Justice thus concluded that it is difficult to see how a person charged, can defend him or herself personally before the court unless he or she is at liberty to dispute the evidence of the prosecution witness either by cross- examining the prosecution witnesses who have made statements tendered as evidence before the court or his own behalf.Mr. Chang also stated that ordinary legislation cannot create an exception to the application of a constitutional provision –unless provided for in the constitution itself.  Chief Justice Chang thus ordered that the committal order by the Magistrate be quashed.

Police are investigating the circumstances in which a set of human bones were found on Thursday in a clump of bushes on a vacant plot of land at Waterloo, Bath Settlement, West Coast Berbice.The bones were later identified as the remains of Sookram Ragabir called ‘Baayun’ of the same area. The man had been missing since August. But his disappearance was never reported, because, according to relatives, he had some abnormalities and did various jobs in and around the community and would at times reside where he worked.Sookram RagabirHis last place of employment in August when he reportedly went missing was at a supermarket in the area as a security guard. According to the relatives, apparently the owner did not know of his whereabouts, because the man visited them and asked for Ragabir. They were surprised, because they had thought that Ragabir was with the supermarket owner all the time.It was then that their suspicions were aroused and they began searching for him.  The search went on for months and even took them to some ‘old folks homes’ and the National Psychiatric Hospital in Fort Canje, because Ragabir was mentally challenged.It was on Thursday that they were informed that some human bones were found, including part of the foot, Cheap Soccer Jerseys, the skull, parts of the rib and a part of the spine. A pair of pants and a wallet were found in a trench about 25ft away.  They stated that the supermarket owner had told them that “Ragabir should have around $65, 000 to $70, 000 in his wallet.”The wallet was found with $24, 000 inside.Residents in the area stated that for the past few months they had been getting a stench coming from the area but thought that it was the body of an animal because persons would usually throw dead animals in the area.The man leaves to mourn three sisters and one brother. He would have celebrated his birthday on December 26th.
