鈥nvestigation ongoing into smuggling to Suriname and Trinidad聽 The price of sugar has touched the $100 per pound mark in Berbice, and shopkeepers are claiming that Guysuco has increased the cost for the commodity.However, on Sunday, Minister of Agriculture Robert Persaud told residents in Berbice that they should not pay any increase for the commodity, since the sugar company did not raise the price.But even as the minister sought to calm the concerns of residents, he himself admitted that investigations are ongoing into the smuggling of sugar to Suriname and Trinidad.鈥淧eople are smuggling the sugar, and what we have to do is monitor the quota of the local people, especially in Berbice, because we received reports that they are smuggling the sugar, 鈥� Persaud said during a meeting with farmers at Rose Hall village on Sunday.He said that Guysuco was seeking an increase of one cent a pound for sugar, but that he denied the company.鈥淚 told them that we need to ensure that we preserve the price, but the problem we face is that we got report, and we are investigating it, that the sugar that is supposed to be in the local market is in Suriname, and that is why they are creating some sort of problem.鈥漈he minister, however, assured that there will be sufficient sugar on the local market.The minister said that there is strict management of the quota system.鈥淲e have also advertised the price at which people should sell sugar, and any distributor that sells above that, we will take away the arrangement that the retailer may have with Guysuco, 鈥� Minister Persaud said.The minister added that there is no shortage, but a check is being made to determine if distributors are hoarding the commodity.鈥淭hey work the numbers and they know it鈥hat the local consumers pay for sugar and the price that it can be sold for are very different, so there is an incentive to smuggle it out, but we have to prevent that, 鈥� Minister Persaud added.When asked about a mechanism that can be put in place to check on the supply of sugar in the county, Persaud said that he will ask the New Guyana Marketing Corporation to use their distribution systems.He said that he believes there may be a problem of distribution and not supply, stating that there is the quantum but it may not be evenly distributed in the various sectors.鈥淚f we are able to determine which areas in Berbice have a distribution problem with the sugar, then I can let New GMC come and do the truck system in the different areas, Ryan McLaughlin Liverpool Jersey UK, 鈥� he added.He said that people should not pay an increase, because Guysuco is absorbing that increased cost for production for the local consumers.

– not first attackA Perry Street, Tucville woman is living in fear of a Sophia resident who remains at large, four days after inflicting a vicious cutlass attack on her sister, 43-year-old Carlotta Stephens.The 45-year-old suspect, who is the woman’s estranged reputed husband, reportedly chopped Stephens on the legs and right arm after sneaking into the family’s yard in broad daylight last Monday.The attempt on Stephens’ life is reportedly just the latest incident of physical abuse that the woman has suffered at the hands of her reputed husband, who continues to stalk her although she severed the relationship years ago.Stephens, who is still hospitalised, told Kaieteur News that she was washing near the back steps when her reputed husband came up behind her and began to chop her on the legs. She said that she was also chopped on the right hand while warding off a chop that was aimed at her neck.Her assailant fled after a few young men in the area saw the attack and raised an alarm.Jacqueline Stephens, the injured woman’s sister, told Kaieteur News that she was awakened by noises outside, Miami Hurricanes Jerseys, at around 10:30 hrs last Monday.The woman said that she went to her veranda where she saw the suspect, who had a cutlass, running north up Perry Street with some residents in pursuit.“I went back inside and I heard somebody groaning and saying ‘Jackie…Jackie…’ and I recognized is Carlotta’s (voice), and I went to the back door and I saw my sister lying down on the concrete in a pool of blood with wounds to her legs. I ask ‘is who do this’, and she say ‘is Chicken’ (the suspect’s alias).”“I wrapped her in two towels and called 911 three times and got no response. I then called a taxi, wrapped my sister in towels and two tarpaulins and took her to the Georgetown Hospital.”She said that her sister is still unable to walk and has to be fed. Meanwhile, the suspect reportedly contacted the injured woman’s relatives the same day, warning them that “it just begin.”“They broke up awhile, but he keeps tracking her, ” the sister said.Ms. Stephens described her sister’s reputed husband as “ignorant, jealous and cruel, ” and said that her sister had suffered some 17 years of physical torment at his hands. She also accused the police of doing little to protect her sibling. The sister alleged that no police rank visited the scene of the attack.“When I went to the (East La Penitence) Police Station to make a report, they tell me if I see him I must make a report.”She recalled that her sister, a former Supernumerary Constable, was heading to work some years ago when the suspect slashed her in the face.Kaieteur News was told that the woman’s reputed husband was charged with wounding, but the case dragged on for over two years.The matter was reportedly dismissed after the injured woman stopped attending court.
