  • Wanted man turns self in for alleged attack on SASOD Head

    first_imgDays after the Guyana Police Force (GPF) issued a wanted bulletin for 29-year-old Maverick De Abreu, on Monday afternoon he turned himself in to Police custody at the Brickdam Police Station, accompanied by his attorney, Siand Dhurjon.Maverick De AbreuThe wanted bulletin was issued last Friday for De Abreu for questioning in relation to the assault of gay rights activist and Head of the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD), Joel Simpson.De Abreu is suspected to be one of the persons who carried out an attack on SASOD’s Head at Bourda Market, Georgetown, following a party at a popular city bar on June 15, 2019.According to media reports, Simpson had visited the Bourda Market to make a purchase after a night out when he was attacked by six men whom he had allegedly had an earlier encounter with at a popular night club.Simpson alleged that as he continued to ignore the men while making his order, he was pushed to the ground and badly beaten. Further, it was revealed that a City Constable, who attempted to intervene, was also attacked by the men and was later rescued by market vendors and taken to safety.Joel SimpsonAfter the attack, SASOD’s Head was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) where he sought medical attention for injuries sustained to his hands, knees and sides.Meanwhile, De Abreu, who is no stranger to the court, was charged back in 2017 for discharging a loaded firearm at his pregnant girlfriend and her sister. However, that charge was dismissed after the virtual complainants refused to give evidence. Another wanted bulletin was issued for De Abreu in relation to an attack on Trinidadian, Rodney LeBlanc commonly known as “Benjai”, which also occurred in 2017. He is currently before the courts for that case.last_img read more

  • Guard shot, another injured by bandits

    first_imgA security guard was on Saturday shot while two others injured when armed bandits attempted to invade theCompton CharlesBerbice Educational Institute.According to reports, the incident, which occurred around 02:00h, left Compton Charles, 65, of Wapping Lane, New Amsterdam, nursing gunshot wounds to his left arm.The other injured persons are Neville Roberts and Geneva Crandon who were both assaulted by the gunmen.Reports are the gunmen beat and bound Roberts and Crandon as they were trying to get to the upper flat of the building.Charles related to this publication that he heard what appeared to be a commotion coming from the lower flat and upon investigating realised that five men were in the compound.“I couldn’t handle five men so I go in the room and they come and push open the door because it don’t have a lock,”According to the injured man, instructions were given by one of the gunman to shoot him and then he felt a sharp pain to his left arm.Crandon, the injured woman, related that the men approached her and immediately started to assault her.“I saw a man come to me and he hold me by my hair and tell me to cooperate because one done dead already, so I start to scream for Charles. Then I see another one come with a knife. The first one had a small gun. They took me downstairs and right around the school.”Crandon said as she was being pulled by her hair to the back of the school, she started to beg for her life, disclosing to the men that her sister had recently died.Upon hearing this, the gunmen released her and she ran to safety.The Police was contacted, however before they arrived, the men made good their escape.Divisional Commander Ian Amsterdam told this publication that one person has been arrested in connection with the incident.He said the suspect is also wanted in connection with a series of robberies, which were carried out on Father’s Day at West Canje and at Angoy’s Avenue.Saturday morning’s incident comes on the heels of an attempt on Thursday evening to break into the New Amsterdam Multilateral School.

  • Goes after international investor BaiShanLin for $80M? – Teixeira

    first_imgBillions in out-of-court settlementsThe Guyana Government has forked out billions of dollars to pay out-of-court settlements, but has moved to seize forestry concessions controlled by BaiShanLin International Forestry Development Inc (BIFDI) over an $80 million debt – a situation that has raised eyebrows in the Opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C)Chief Whip Gail Teixeira on Tuesday, weighing in on the unfolding saga involving the Chinese logging company that had been introduced to Guyana during the previous Administration, said that the coalition Government would do well to be cautious in the signals it sends to international investors.She said this was even more pronounced since in the 16 months that the Administration has been in office, it has managed to bring in no international investor.The former Home Affairs Minister was adamant, however, that the rule of law in the land must be adhered to and that she was not in anyBaiShanLin trucks laden with logs in the interiorway, on the part of the Opposition, advising a free-for-all and anarchy with regard to BaiShanLin’s operations in Guyana. “However, Governments have to be careful on how it treats with contracts entered”.The Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) – in terminating the Joint Venture agreements with five local companies and BaiShanLin – had pointed to a breach of the Forestry Act, with regard to the transfer of shares to the Chinese logging company. The GFC also said, in its public statement, that the decision on repossessing the concessions came after BaiShanLin “failed to deliver on agreed actions to introduce investors to the Commission and having been given time to prove that it had an acceptable plan to clear an approximately GY$80 million debt”.According to Teixeira, where investors are not in compliance, then Government is within its remit to take measures to correct the situation.She suggested that if the company was in fact in breach of local laws, then Government must act, but it must also be careful as to the signals being sent.Teixeira used the opportunity to recall when the PPP/C took office in 1992, it had been faced with a contract that was inked with Omai Gold Mines that had been unfavourable to Government.She said the then President, Dr Cheddi Jagan, went about soliciting international legal advice on how to deal with the matter and it was found to be best in the end, to leave the contract to run its course, since terminating the agreement would have had significant untoward fallout.“We were advised that under international law, we would be caught up in conundrum of legal cases we could not afford,” Teixeira reminded.She said at the time Government determined that it would have been best to let the agreement run its course, but to ensure that Omai Gold Mines adhered strictly to the rules, laws and regulations.According to Teixeira, “with BaiShanLin, I don’t want to get into the details….I would hope that Government looked at the issue in the broadest sense”.She did seek to question the rationale of the Government in taking a ‘high-handed’ approach with BaiShanLin, when it was able to work out several out-of-court settlements to the tune of billions, specifically with Demerara Distillers Limited (DDL) and BK International.She questioned if this was the approach taken by Government with regard to DDL and BK, why some arrangement could not have been worked out with BaiShanLin.The Opposition Chief Whip was adamant, however, that the current Administration has managed to introduce not one single new investment in this country in the past 16 months and the wisdom of its recent actions would be illustrated in future since “we will see what are repercussions”.last_img read more

  • Rooney insists: ‘I’m not chasing England’s all-time scoring record’

    first_imgEngland captain Wayne Rooney has insisted he is not actively chasing down the nation’s all-time goalscoring record.The Manchester United striker has been the Three Lions’ primary frontman even since his debut as a 17-year-old in 2003, and while his strike-rate in international football has not been as prolific as for his club, he has slowly risen up the scoring charts.After netting the winner in last month’s 1-0 victory over Norway, Rooney is now just three goals from equalling Three Lions great Jimmy Greaves and only nine away from eclipsing United legend and World Cup winner Sir Bobby Charlton’s 49-goal tally.But, ahead of Euro 2016 qualifying ties with San Marino and Estonia this week, asked if the record is on his mind when he steps onto the pitch, the striker told talkSPORT: “No, not really.“Obviously it’s there, there’s no denying that, and if I can get it sooner rather than later, then great!“But I’m not going into these games thinking I have to overtake Jimmy in the goalscoring charts.“I’m just hoping to perform well and hoping the team will get six points from the two matches.”England are desperate to put a miserable summer of World Cup action firmly behind them with a strong qualifying campaign for the European Championships.Manager Roy Hodgson is keen to promote the host of young home-grown talent who are beginning to shine in the Premier League, and Rooney revealed the team’s recent training sessions have left him excited for the Three Lions’ future.“It was unbelievable in training today,” he added.“The amount of pace and energy we’ve got in the team, the speed we can move to ball and open teams up with, it’s really exciting to be a part of.“Honestly, it was unbelievable. If we can take that into games we’ll be a hard team to stop.”last_img read more
