Guyana Police Force is being used to muzzle protesters in Region Six

first_imgDear Editor,The Guyana Police Force is mandated to protect and serve the people, unfortunately, the priority of the Police Force is to serve and protect the APNU/AFC coalition Government Ministers, Government officials, while the ordinary Guyanese is being sacrificed to the mercy of bandits and criminals, thanks to the incompetence of Khemraj Ramjattan and the APNU/AFC coalition Government.The security situation in Guyana remains a serious concern for every single Guyanese. The APNU/AFC coalition Government promised the Guyanese people in 2015 that high emphasis would be placed on the security of Guyanese but the only thing that changed was the name of the Ministry that is responsible for security, increased police security for Ministers, leaving Guyana with an uncontrolled level of crimes in the entire country. The Minister who is directly responsible for public security, Khemraj Ramjattan, and the Guyana Police Force boastfully, in reports, stats and the media, highlighted that the crime situation is under control but the reality is quite opposite.The facts are that Guyanese have definitely lost confidence in the Guyana Police Force, whereby people are even refusing to report incidents that they have encountered, and even if these matters are reported, the Police Force is of no help. I am confident that the response that would be given by Khemraj Ramjattan and other Government officials is that crime is under control.A 170-year Indian culture in Guyana where music is being played for weddings is being stopped by Ramjattan and the GPF. This Indian tradition is being strangled by this APNU/AFC Government and confined to Berbice alone.The Guyana Police Force is being used as a political football. Recently at a picketing exercise at New Amsterdam Multilateral School, protesters were being forced by the police to move about 500 feet from the entrance of the school while thugs of the APNU/AFC were allowed to remain at the entrance of the school. APNU/AFC thugs were allowed by the police to behave abusively towards protesters while the police refused to remove them from in front of the school entrance. The police even tolerated the loud abusive and taunts.The protesters who were exercising their constitutional rights were not given that privilege, senior police officers ensured that four policemen were placed to keep protesters 500 feet away from the entrance of the school. During the PPP/C Government in office, during the 2015 campaign, protesters were allowed at the location of a meeting in Lusignan, East Coast Demerara. I’m still contemplating if we had a change in rules now.The big question is, are we moving to a full-fledged dictatorship where the Police Force is being used to subdue and stifle democracy? David Granger’s visits to New Amsterdam Multilateral School is an insult to the lives of many of those students whose parents were dismissed from the sugar estates by this Granger Administration, and can barely afford to be in school, the students’ cash grant was taken away by Granger’s APNU/AFC Government and with the same breath, Granger is preaching that his Government wants every child to be in school, that is “high class hypocrisy”. Granger’s rhetoric about regional involvement is just to mislead the populace. The 1 million dollar cash grant by Granger is a pittance, compared to approximately 100 million dollars that is being spent at Bermine Ground for the Republic Celebration in 2020. So you the people can actually determine what is the priority of this illegal APNU/AFC coalition Government.Regards,Zamal Hussainlast_img read more

Pensioner, 73, told Garda it would take a better man to have his welfare stopped

first_imgA man who was charged with threatening and abusing a Garda who called to his home to examine his social welfare payments has been found not guilty.Pensioner Desmond Morrison, aged 73, appeared at Letterkenny District Court facing the single charge which allegedly took place at his home at Gort na Greine in Letterkenny on June 8th 2018. The court was told that Garda Sgt Harvey Maughan called to Mr Morrison’s home in his role as a Garda and a social welfare inspector.Garda Maughan explained why he was there and he said that Morrison became irate and aggressive and he “square up” to him.Sgt Maughan said he retreated back and Mr Morrison called him a “prick.”The Garda said that Morrison then followed him out onto the public footpath and called him a “f***ing prick” again.He then allegedly said to Sgt Maughan that it would take a better man than him to stop his social welfare payments.Morrison then began videoing the Garda on his mobile phone and Sgt Maughan said he decided to leave the area.Solicitor for Morrison, Ms Maureen Gallagher, put a number of allegations to Sgt Maughan which he denied.Amongst them were that Sgt Maughan had said that he would have Mr Morrison’s payments stopped which the Garda denied.Ms Gallagher also said that Under Section 6 of the Public Order Act, the offence would have to take place in a public place where members of the public have access to and which she claimed did not as it was outside Mr Morrison’s home.Giving his verdict Judge Paul Kelly said that while Mr Morrison’s reply to Sgt Maughan was unpleasant and vulgar, he did not believe it met the requirements of a charge under Section 6 and dismissed the case.Pensioner, 73, told Garda it would take a better man to have his welfare stopped was last modified: October 18th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:courtDesmond MorrisondonegalGardailetterkennylast_img read more

HALF-TIME AT CROKER: DONEGAL LEAD ARMAGH BY TWO POINTS

first_imgMuchael Muprhy: scored Donegal’s first point.Donegal lead Armagh by two points at half-time on a scoreline of 1-05 to 0-06 in their All-Ireland Senior Football Championship quarter-final clash at Croke ParkMichael Murphy gave Donegal the lead in the third minute, putting a free over the bar from 30 yards.Tony Kernan drew Armagh level  five minutes later with an excellent point from play from 45 yards. The game threatened to boil over in the 10th minute as players and officials got involved in a “bit of handbags” in front of “Hill 16” during which the Donegal team doctor was pushed to the ground.When the game restarted after a two-minute delay, Aaron Kernan put a free over the bar to put Armagh in front for the first time.Wing forward Aiden Forker extended the Armagh lead when he floated over a lovely point in the 20th minute and the same player should have scored again a minute later but he put his shot wide when in a good possession.The game burst into life in the 22nd minute when Oran MacNiallais found the bottom corner of the Armagh net for his first ever championship goal to put Donegal into a one point lead on a scoreline of 1-01 to 0-03. However, the lead last only lasted three minutes as first, Stefan Campbell and then Andy Mallon put the Orchard County back in front.A brilliant free swung in from distance by Michael Murphy brought the Tir Chonaill county back on level terms a minute later and he put over another to put Donegal back in front with five minutes of the half remaining.Full-back Neil McGee pushed up to double the advantage with an excellent score before Armagh’s Kyle Carragher put over the bar to reduce the deficit to a single point.Following another “handbag” confrontation between the players in the Armagh goalmouth, Michael Murphy put over another free to send Donegal in at half-time with a two-point advantage on a scoreline of 1-05 to 0-06.     HALF-TIME AT CROKER: DONEGAL LEAD ARMAGH BY TWO POINTS was last modified: August 9th, 2014 by johngerardShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:armaghcrokedonegalFootballparkQuarter final.Seniorlast_img read more

She decided to start her own business because she knew that it would give her the opportunity, not only to do what she loves, but the flexibility to be on hand for her three children, Maurice 17, Hannah 15 & Luke 11. “I am passionate about my work, I love working with clients from all over the globe and from all different industries and sizes and when I see a smile on a clients face or get an “I love it” email, then that makes everything I do worthwhile”. says Grace Ann.“However, being in business on your own can sometimes be isolating and that’s why networks like the Donegal Women in Business Network are a great source for sharing knowledge, meeting potential new clients, friends and mentors and learning from successful, start up and growing business people in our own county”.The Donegal Women in Business Network is in existence now for 15 years and provides a valuable platform for the inspiration and capacity building of women in business through a variety of initiatives and opportunities and is making a contribution towards developing the next generation of women business.The network is also a sounding board for advice and giving support through their events, workshops & conferences held regularly throughout the county. The different categories of membership represent a cross section of businesswomen across different sectors. Members include entrepreneurs, women managing businesses for other owners, social entrepreneurs, thought leaders and senior decision makers. We continually upgrade our various programmes and initiatives to keep abreast of what women need to sustain and grow their business. Programmes and activities range from the purely social, to the strongly business focused, such as skills development, mentoring, social media training, networking, financial presentations and guest speakers from the business and professional sectors. Over the last few years we have made significant networking links with our colleagues in Derry Women in Enterprise and Sligo Women in Business network.The Committee provide their time and commit fully to their voluntary roles and are the main touch point within the membership of the network.The hard working committee, who take time out of their busy schedules, to meet and organise the networking events, workshops and conferences for the members are newly elected President : Grace Ann McGarvey, Brand, Web Design, Media & Communications, Vice President : Shona Chambers, John McColgan Financial Advisors, Treasurer, Rachel Wasson, Karen Murphy, Karen Murphy Speech & Drama, Rosemary Lyons, Enterprise Officer, Inishowen Development Partnership Company, Fiona Higgins, Batik Art by Fiona Higgins, Maureen Walsh, Errigal Montessori, Denise McClintock, DWIB Administrator, Fiona O’Reilly, On the Dot, and Catherine Lyster, LYIT.“Collectively within the network we have a huge knowledge and expertise and I believe we are making a difference to our economy. There are challenges of course, such as managing time, providing challenging programmes of interest for our members and providing value for money. However, I strongly believe that it is important for the growth of women in business to ensure that we have a voice in the county regarding business issues and in the importance of links with the Local Enterprise Office, who were instrumental in setting up the Women in Business Network, Donegal County Council, Enterprise Ireland, other support agencies and financial institutions that offer support to our members and engage with the Network.“It is my vision to increase the footprint and the voice of Donegal women in business both, in the county, and nationally, and to increase our membership significantly to make that happen. To that end, I would encourage any woman that is in business or managing a business in the county to make contact with us, join the network for only €40 a year, help yourself and let us help you to grow your business. I would also like to encourage all the agencies in the county to make contact with us so that we can add them our mailing lists and distribute anything that may be of relevance to our members.” Anyone can contact the network directly and join instantly by logging onto www.donegalwomeninbusiness.com, email info@donegalwomeninbusiness.com, contact me directly at ga@graceannconsultancy.com.
