Guyana police commissioner suspended after rape allegations

first_img Tweet 38 Views   no discussions Share Share Guyana’s Police Commissioner Henry Green, who is facing rape allegationsGEORGETOWN, Guyana — Guyana’s Police Commissioner Henry Green has been placed on leave following allegations that he violently raped and falsely imprisoned a thirty-four year old mother of two at gun-point.Guyana’s government-run news agency, GINA, reported on Saturday that President Donald Ramotar had placed Green on leave pending the outcome of the rape investigation.The woman, the wife of a Guyana Defence Force officer, said the incident occurred at a guesthouse, for which she said Green had keys to a room.Green has been previously accused of rape during President Desmond Hoyte’s administration. He was a senior superintendent at the time, and was reportedly sent on leave but reinstated after the investigation allegedly stalled over a lack of evidence.Green’s US visa was revoked in 2006 by the US government for alleged involvement with criminals, including drug lords. The then US Ambassador to Guyana in 2006 warned then President Bharrat Jagdeo not to appoint Green as police commissioner, as he was possibly under DEA investigation and could be indicted by the US Justice Department.By Caribbean News Now contributorcenter_img Sharing is caring!

Year 2016: New stars, shocks and tears in F1 year

first_imgWhen the F1 circus reached Barcelona, he led by 43 points.On May 15, the first major pivot in the drama arrived. The two Mercedes men collided into each other on the opening lap, Verstappen blazed to glory, aged 18, and F1’s order was truly shaken up.Phenomenal run Two weeks later, he almost won in Monaco, but for a messy pit-stop strategy and the excellence of Hamilton in the rain, the Briton winning for the first time in more than six months.In the same two races, Rosberg’s early-season confidence went from easy to brittle. He led the points’ chart, but he could sense Hamilton’s heat and speed and the chase was on.It stayed that way with Hamilton eventually taking over the championship lead in July after a phenomenal run of wins.But his engine failures and other assorted mechanical problems cost him dear with penalties when the action resumed in Belgium where he took as many new parts as possible and conceded victory to Rosberg.Revived Rosberg took full advantage of Hamilton’s wavering concentration and won again in Italy and then in Singapore and Japan, after Ricciardo had triumphed in Malaysia.Mercedes dominance was unquestioned, but Red Bull were back as their main rivals while Ferrari blustered and flustered, accompanied by a rumour machine suggesting weekly fallouts in the team.All this left Hamilton a distant second, but he ended the year as Rosberg began it with four straight wins, including a demonstration in the rain in Brazil where Verstappen raced from 15th to finish third.By then, too, it was clear only a minor miracle could enable Hamilton to keep his crown as Rosberg finished second and second and second and second. It was all he needed in the nerve-shredding duel in the desert.There, he wept with joy while others, including popular veterans Briton Jenson Button and Brazilian Felipe Massa signed off. In a year of some upheaval, McLaren also said goodbye in acrimonious circumstances to their long-serving boss Ron Dennis after a board-room shake-up.str/cw Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | In Formula One, it was the year that had everything and more.From the arrival of a precocious teenage star to the abrupt retirement of a first-time champion, 2016 will be remembered as a roller-coaster of surprises, accidents, rivalries and farewells.Dutchman Max Verstappen, the son of journeyman racer Jos Verstappen, won on his debut with the Red Bull team at the Spanish Grand Prix and went on to dazzle and, sometimes, ignite hostility. A champion was born.Defending champion and three-time title-holder Lewis Hamilton drove brilliantly, but not often enough to overcome a sequence of setbacks that cost him glory – and handed his team-mate and rival Nico Rosberg the crown.The Englishman’s 10th win came in November’s season-ender in Abu Dhabi, where he was foiled in a last-gasp attempt to create a trap for his team-mate. No-one has won so many races without taking the title.Rosberg survived and overcame his nerves to finish second in a tense conclusion to a championship that had seen him lead from the front, fall behind and then regain the initiative in the closing months.Five celebratory days later, the 31-year-old German son of the 1982 champion Keke Rosberg announced he was leaving the sport to be with his family.Mercedes, the dominant force that carried him to success on the crest of a third successive constructors’ championship, were left chasing after a replacement.Team boss Toto Wolff also had to face up to the likely departure of his ever-reliable and even-tempered sidekick technical boss Paddy Lowe who looked set to join Williams.In typical F1 fashion, it appeared likely that Williams’ star driver Finn Valtteri Bottas was being lined up as Rosberg’s replacement in the most coveted seat in the pit-lane for the faster ‘new-look’ cars of 2017.The placid Bottas may prove to be a perfect choice, not least because of his temperament. He has plenty of speed, too, but is unlikely to match Rosberg’s run of wins.Rosberg reeled off wins in Australia, Bahrain, China and Russia to leave Hamilton panting in pursuit.last_img read more

Bill Bryce receives Micklem Award

first_img Bill Bryce, who has spent over 40 years at the highest levels of golf administration, has received England Golf’s Gerald Micklem Award for his outstanding contribution to the game. He was presented with the award by England Golf’s outgoing President, Nigel Evans, at the organisation’s annual meeting today. “I feel honoured and delighted to receive this award and to join such a distinguished list of former recipients,” said Bill. “Golf has been a huge part of my life and it has given me so much. A great deal of that is due to my involvement with the English Golf Union and England Golf, for which I am very grateful.” Bill is a Scot who has been one of the most prominent figures in England golfing life, having been President of the former English Golf Union and, most recently, chairing the England Golf Partnership for ten years until his retirement last year. But his contribution to the game extends far beyond England, for he has been a member of the R&A since 1974, chairing three of its committees, and has also represented England on the European Golf Association council and been a member of its championship committee.  As a referee he has officiated at 10 Open Championships, three US Masters, one Ryder Cup and two Walker Cups as well as the St Andrews and Jacques Leglise Trophies. He has also visited the United States and Japan on many occasions representing the R&A. Bill began playing golf in Glasgow, where he was born. He was reserve for the Scottish Boys’ team v England Boys in 1951 and later captained the Glasgow University team, receiving a “Blue” and going on to play for Scottish Universities. Bill qualified as a Scottish solicitor in 1957 and after two years in practice in Glasgow joined the Distillers Company in London as a legal adviser. When Distillers was taken over by Guinness in 1986 Bill continued with that company until his retirement in 1994. Bill joined Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club in 1960 and was club champion in 1963 and 1974, the year in which he became the youngest-ever Captain, apart from H R H The Prince of Wales who was Captain in 1926. He still holds that distinction. He was President of the club from 2003 to 2013 and on his retirement was elected a Life Member Bill played for Surrey during the 1970s and was county captain for three years, going on to be County President from 1986 to 1988. He represented Surrey on the EGU Council and was Chairman of the Championship and National Coaching committees. Bill was elected a Vice-President of the Artisan Golfers’ Association in December 1992. He was elected President in November 2003 following the death of the previous incumbent Sir Anthony Hollis, a month or two earlier. He is still President of the AGA. Bill no longer plays competitive golf but still enjoys a few holes with friends at Royal Mid-Surrey and Walton Heath, of which he is an Honorary Member. He tries to get to the other clubs of which he is a member at least once a year: Prestwick in Scotland, The R&A in St Andrews and Merion in the United States.

STAKES QUOTES – BUENA VISTA STAKES – SATURDAY, FEB. 18, 2017

first_imgFLAVIEN PRAT, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “I had a good trip. She didn’t break very well but I got a good trip.“The pace was fast but that’s the way it set up today. She won pretty easy though, she was much better today than last time out.“I worked her before her last race and I felt she was much better today. I was pretty confident going into today.” NOTES: The winning owner is Ramona Bass of Fort Worth, TX. TRAINER QUOTES             RICHARD MANDELLA, WILD AT HEART, WINNER: “After the scratches, the race got a bit easier. We were anxious to see what she could do on the turf, but I’ll take what happened here today.“She impressed me today. She’s always tries to be a good mare but just wasn’t quite breaking through.“This seems to be a good distance for her. She’s quick enough to sprint if you try that and she’s able to go little further as well. We just really needed to win a stake so I feel good about this.“You know I’m partial to Flavien. To me, he looked great when he was 18 years old. I think he does make a difference. I think he’s one of the best that we’ve seen in a long time.” JOCKEY QUOTESlast_img read more
