first_imgAs crime spirals out of controlAs Guyana’s crime rate continues to climb, Government has turned to the international community for help with curbing the crime situation in the country, particularly as it relates to policing its porous borders.To this end, Guyana signed a security pact with 15 other Caribbean countries and the United States of America, targeting specific areas of criminal activities while building on social justice.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan at an Alliance For Change press conference on Friday said law enforcement in Guyana cannot fight crime alone, hence Government’s decision to join the Caribbean-United States Security Cooperation, an initiative implemented under the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (CBSI). According to the Minster, during a recent visit to Washington, DC, discussions were had with the other member states of the organisation pertaining to issues that are currently plaguing Guyana and the Region as a whole, such as the illicit trafficking of weapons and narcotics.This area, he noted, is one of three pillars that the security pact focuses on. Ramjattan pointed out that it has been observed that the Colombians, Venezuelans and others involved in the narcotics trade such as Brazil and other South American countries, are now using Guyana as a conduit.“That is why we have been finding lots of airplanes (in the hinterland) and they are lots of others, we understand, that have flown in and flown out back carrying their stuff to Europe and North America. And now we know, they do drop offs and it’s brought to Georgetown, put in containers and that is how all these containers with rice and so on are being caught with cocaine in other countries,” the Minister stated.Nevertheless, Ramjattan posited that Guyana was commended by the US State Department for efforts undertaken in tackling the drug trade within its borders, especially as it relates to interdictions by the efforts of the Customs Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) and the Guyana Police Force’s (GPF) Narcotics Unit. He added that one such milestone in this regard is the arrest of convicted drug lord Barry Dataram, who had fled to neighbouring Suriname to avoid serving jail time.On the other hand, the Public Security Minister also revealed that requests were made for assistance in strengthening security at the country’s borders in order to curb gun-smuggling.“I did identify border controls because more and more the evidence is that from Brazil, we are having more small arms coming in. So whilst we have sharpened up in relation to interdictions of guns coming in from North America through our GRA (Guyana Revenue Authority) system and the (commercial) airplanes, we have to also have our eyes in the Brazilian territory which is a very long porous border too,” he outlined.According to Ramjattan, while such surveillance will be expensive, since it would more or less come in the form of an airplane or satellite imagery, a commitment was given to help Guyana in this area.“I don’t know but we told them we would like to have surveillance equipment, if it’s not going to be airplanes then drones that can go a good hundred miles and come back at some command centre probably in Lethem… In these exercises of trying to stop drugs and firearms from entering Guyana, if all of that is what we will require, they have made a commitment that yes there will be assistance in that regard,” the Minister asserted.He went on to highlight that the second pillar of the agreement entails increasing public safety and security through programmes ranging from professionalising the law enforcement institutions and technical assistance in training; and improving the rule of law and supporting the justice sector.Minister Ramjattan noted that under this pillar, a new patrolling initiative will be introduced in the form of ‘bicycle brigades’. This will be specially trained and physically fit Police Officers patrolling the streets of Georgetown on bicycles.“Good, strong looking Guyanese girls and boys on bicycles that are already equipped with their training, doing their jobs… They are going to go to Las Vegas, Nevada, for training as how to do it, what to expect whilst being on a bicycle brigade and so on. We have to start doing things like that… because we need more patrols but it is expensive to have 4×4 vehicles,” he posited.Additional training will be done in the areas of crime scene investigations, testifying and undergoing heavy cross-examination.Meanwhile, the third pillar is the support of justice sector reform, which will see Magistrates and prosecutors undergoing intense training – something which Guyana has already embarked on.Moreover, Ramjattan noted that another aspect of this is the promoting of social justice through crime prevention activities. The Minister stressed that the root causes of crime need to be identified and addressed in order to fight crimes. Against this background, the US has agreed to fund a new programme – the ‘Community, Family and Youth Resilience Programme’ – in Guyana. This will see professionals working with youths, ages 10 to 25, to re-direct them from criminal pathways to productive activities.last_img read more

first_imgCybercrime Bill outrage…reminds APNU of election promise to preserve free speech…Human rights body calls for scrapping of “repulsive” billThe Working People’s Alliance (WPA), one of the coalition partners, has stepped into the consternation resulting from the inclusion of the sedition clause in the Cyber Crime Bill of 2016, demanding that it be removed due to the threat it poses.According to the party on Friday, the offence in fact goes against the current Government’s promise at the May 2015 General and Regional Elections campaign: that it would respect constitutional provisions to protect freedom of expression.“Further, we affirm that censorial power is in the people over the Government and not the Government over the people. In our view, political discontent is the cornerstone of democracy, and to tamper with it is a denial of individual human rights,” the WPA said on Friday.Any law, it noted, which seeks to criminalise free speech or to appear to tamper with it in any form is a blow to the will of the people. “A sedition law has no place in a modern democratic society. It is a historical legacy of colonialism, and should have been abolished at the time of political independence”, the WPA has said.According to the WPA, Guyana cannot truly call itself independent if the country still uses the “tools of the Crown” to silence or threaten dissidents. This, it noted, would be a betrayal of the anti-colonial, working class struggle.At a post-Cabinet press conference last week, Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, had insisted that the clause falls under national security.However, according to the WPA, the clause is not only harmful, but wholly unnecessary. In view of previous cases, the party pointed to the Racial Hostility Act as one of the relevant pieces of legislation already in place to deal with threats originating from cyber space.“We urge the Government to rescind the law of sedition, as it would signal that the state has no intention to resort to oppressive rule in the face of legitimate criticisms from the electorate, and note that there are adequate provisions in other acts, such as the Racial Hostility Act, to treat with the relevant cases that may arise.”ScrappingWhile the “sedition clause” itself has produced an uproar, the Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) on Friday noted that it is only one of the “many obnoxious features” of the bill.The association noted that instead of protecting the principle and benefits of cyberspace users, the bill has dangerously been constructed with vague wording. It also conveys the impression, GHRA noted, of a cyberspace populated with dangerous people.“…this Bill suppresses the right to freedom of expression, encourages censorship and self-censorship, eliminates content, blocks internet sites, prompting parallels with role of morality police associated with the most repressive regimes.”It quoted section 3, clause (1) of the bill, which states, “A person commits an offence if the person intentionally, without authorisation or in excess of authorisation, or by infringing any security measure, accesses a computer system or any part of a computer system of another person.It goes on to state that, “A person who commits an offence under subsection (1) is liable on summary conviction to a fine of three million dollars and to imprisonment for three years; or on conviction on indictment to a fine of five million dollars and to imprisonment for five years.”“Cyberspace is not some form of disease that needs to be ‘cauterized’ lest it becomes rampant and destroy us all. On the contrary, it is both an expression and a reflection of today’s reality and that of the foreseeable future as well,” the GHRA added.It noted that draconian legislation of the kind being proposed in the Bill would have little, if any, impact on this reality, adding that a more enlightened approach “is required — one which does not begin by seeking refuge in what will inevitably become a legislative quagmire in an already unstable criminal justice system,” The Association warned.last_img read more

Therefore it could falsely give a pedestrian the indication that it is safe to cross when reality it isn’t.“We cannot wait for someone to be knocked down before taking action on this issue. “I have spoken to other councillors as well as senior roads engineers and I have asked that the crossing is discussed at the next electoral area meeting in Inishowen.“I am hopeful that we have now created enough momentum to finally deliver a safe pedestrian crossing for the village.” ANGRY VILLAGERS DEMAND SAFE CROSSING was last modified: October 26th, 2013 by John2Share 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:Cllr Jack Murraycrossingmuffroad safetyVILLAGElast_img read more

first_imgThe HSE, in partnership with other organisations and community and voluntary groups is developing a Suicide Prevention Action Plan for County Donegal.Although lots of good work is going on in the county, there is still much that can be done to promote mental health, prevent further suicide deaths and support those who are bereaved.A key part of the development of an action plan is providing an opportunity for as many people as possible to have their say regarding what should be included. “We believe that suicide prevention is everyone’s business and we all need to be aware of what we can do individually and as part of our community to promote mental health and reduce suicide” said Maire O’Leary, HSE Social Inclusion Manager who is part of the team preparing the local action plan.“We have arranged a number of consultation workshops that will take place in September across Donegal. Everyone is welcome to come along to a workshop to find out more about the plan and to share their thoughts and ideas on what we need to consider. We are also distributing postcards to Health Centres, libraries, Family Resource Centres, council Public Service Centres and other locations which have two questions we would like people to respond to, and we have the same questions on an online survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/donegalsuicideprevention, so that people can also give us their feedback online if they prefer.” she concluded.Anne Sheridan, Suicide Resource Officer for the HSE explained “The National Office for Suicide Prevention (NOSP) is currently working to develop a national suicide prevention framework on behalf of the Department of Health. This will build on prevention measures and reduce the risk factors for suicidal behaviour. We are working alongside the NOSP to prepare our own local action plan specifically for Donegal. There are a number of actions that will be coordinated at a national level which will support what we decide to do locally.“We have a great team leading the project with members from all sectors of the county, including Bereavement Support groups, the Gardai, GPs, Coroners, Donegal County Council, and Donegal Youth Service, community, sports and arts organisations and various services within the HSE.
