PM says Guyana Chronicle workers were at risk of losing jobs

first_img…as Opposition MPs question additionalspending of $11M for GINAPrime Minister Moses Nagamootoo came under fire from Opposition parliamentarians who demanded an explanation for the sudden spending of an additional $11 million for the Government Information Agency (GINA) even after some $181 million was approved in Budget 2015 for that entity.Prime MinisterMoses NagamootooMore than one month after the previous sitting of the National Assembly, Thursday’s session was suspended just minutes after getting underway for a private debate on the constitutionality of the consideration of a financial paper on advances made from the Contingency Fund totalling some $799.9 million.Just under one billion dollars had been spent by the Administration outside of what was provided for in the Budget for the period of September 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015.People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Member of Parliament Irfaan Ali challenged the motion brought by the Government, arguing that the spending of these monies flew in the face of the Constitution and the Fiscal Management and Accountability Act.He contended that the Minister shall not in the fiscal year, introduce more than five supplementary bills except in circumstances of grave national emergency.Further, he asserted that the financial paper should have been brought to the House as soon as practicable, before the passage of Budget 2016 in light of the date the monies were spent.When the sitting resumed, House Speaker, Dr Barton Scotland allowed a review of the extra budgetary spending.Finance Minister Winston Jordan was asked to respond to the challenge and posited that the financial paper were in his opinion brought to the Parliament “as soon as practicable”.In response to a subsequent concern raised by PPP/C MP Anil Nandlall, Jordan argued that the monies were indeed spent on situations that were urgent, unavoidable and unforeseen and of grave national emergency.As the consideration commenced, the House Speaker had disclosed that an additional $11 million was provided to GINA to offset partial liabilities owed to the Guyana National Newspapers Limited (GNNL) – Guyana Chronicle.When prompted by MP Ali, the Prime Minister revealed that the payment was made as part of an effort to keep the Guyana Chronicle viable in the face of monies owed by GINA.According to Nagamootoo, some $74 million was owed by GINA to GNNL.Jumping at this bit of information, MP Ali asserted that given that the debts were in existence before May 2015, then the monies spent did not meet the criteria to come from the Contingency Fund.But the Prime Minister explained that the exact figure owed was not made available until after the forensic audit was conducted into the operations of GINA.“It was only when we discovered that GINA was draining the life blood of the Chronicle that we decided that it was in fact an expenditure that could not be avoided, and (we) attempt[ed] to rescue the Guyana Chronicle,” he said.PPP/C MP Juan Edghill then questioned why the $11 million was accessed from the Contingency Fund and not by a supplementary paper that could have been brought, since the expenditure was not unforeseen and urgent.“If this expenditure was known as of May 2015, it might not have been known by the PM, it would have been known by GINA provisions for Budget 2015, this expenditure should have satisfied,” he posited.In response, the Prime Minister said the expenditure was incurred between September and December. He argued that the Guyana Chronicle could not have found money to meet its salaries and urgent demands were made, which produced a situation where workers at the news agency would have been thrown out of jobs.The PM and the Opposition MPs continued to trade barbs over the justification of the spending of the $11 million until it was finally approved by the Government with its slim parliamentary majority.last_img read more

Who Wins 2015 Special Intra-Gov’t Tourney?

first_imgAmongst the eight football teams in the 2015 Special Intra-Governmental Tournament, which begins today, there are two favorites– the current champions, the Ministry of Youth and Sports and the Legislature.The MYS, in the 2014 edition clinched the tournament from amongst over 16 contenders, with former Liberia midfield maestro Kelvin Sebwe providing the inspiration.The employment of Joe Nagbe and George Gebro at the Ministry now will improve the team’s chances.Howbeit, the Legislature –also formidable force – with Africa’s Legend Sen. George Weah, playing as offensive midfielder has Fofi Kamara, Sebastian Mouh amongst others.Today at 9:00am, over 500 public servants from three branches of Government – Legislature, Judiciary and the Executive – are expected to parade from Broad Street’s Sports Commission to the Antoinette Tubman Stadium to kick-off the three-day football and kickball tournaments.A brief program will precede events where Youth and Sports Minister Eugene Nagbe and Madam Yusador Gaye – the Auditor General of the General Auditing Commission, will be amongst other speakers.The GAC’s AG will take the official kick-off at 10:00am.The tournament should have been “celebrating the Kick-out of Ebola in the country,” but the resurgence of the Ebola has caused the tournament to go on without a theme – an unprecedented incident.The cost of the tournament is about US$12,800 – with a budget allocation of about US$10,400 and US$2,400 for totaled registration of the 16 teams.In the opener, the kickball team of NASSCORP meets Ministry of State. The male team of NASSCORP faces the GAC in the first football derby and LIBTELCO will locks horns with the Ministry of Defence.The Judiciary faces the Legislature to climax the day’s games. On Thursday, defending kickball champions of the Ministry of Youth and Sports will play the Legislature, while the Judiciary meets the Forestry Development Authority, and then first winner between NASSCORP and Ministry of State will face the Ministry of Finance and the LBS and the defending football champions Ministry of Youth and Sports will climax the day.At the end of the tournament on Friday, trophies would be given to the first and 2nd winners in each category as well as medals, but individual prizes are yet to be finalized.The reduction of participating teams from 32 to eight teams as well as deletion of the volleyball version are because of budget cut and lack of playing facilities in the country.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tourists are main targets at Bourda, Stabroek Markets – Chief Constable

first_imgAs the City Constabulary has branded the Stabroek and Bourda Markets as two criminal hotspots, they are now seen as key areas for tourists and foreigners to be robbed on a daily basis.This is according to the Chief Constable, Andrew Foo, who told Guyana Times during an interview, that many tourists do not report these incidents and as such, the robbers continue plying their trade.“Stabroek and the Bourda are two areas that continue to be prime areas for criminal elements to operate. Based on the fact that you have economic activities for persons who are selling and who are buying. Persons are conducting their trade and in keeping with that, you have key elements every day.”“There’s a trend emerging where I would say what is termed to be ‘soft targets’. They tend to look at persons who may be possibly foreigners or tourists, because, in most cases, when they’re robbed, some don’t make official or formal Police reports. They tend to just leave the country,” he said.Foo noted that while these persons – mostly Cubans and Venezuelans — are the main targets, there are citizens who are marked by these criminals at key locations which are busy throughout the day. He stated that for these incidents to decrease, those who are mugged or robbed must report the offence.“We have information where you have small networks that are operating. We tend to focus on those persons. Sometimes, there are persons who are robbed. Those persons don’t want to pursue matters.”Meanwhile, the Chief Constable also related that the network of robbers usually operated in gangs, using cellphones as the main medium of communication.“They have networks that I believe that they’re utilising because we’re in the age of technology. There are times when these persons are using their cellphones to communicate with each other,” he said.While systems were put in place to monitor these occurrences at all costs, the city lacks Police ranks to carry out these patrols and other functions. Some measures have also been taken to address these issues.“We have a responsibility of ensuring that those areas are kept safe. It’s my desire for there to be an increase in our numbers, so as to ensure that we have effective public safety and security around the municipal locations,” the Chief Constable said.“We’ve been having reports in relation to those activities. Again, in keeping with what we have, we’ve been implementing measures to treat these reports, to have a presence where necessary to arrest and prosecute those persons who are responsible,” he added.last_img read more

Who is Mino Raiola? The super-agent with a number of star studded clients

first_imgGianluigi DonnarumaHenrikh MkhitaryanHirving LozanoMario BalotelliGiacomo BonaventuraJustin KluivertLuciano NarsinghSergio RomeroIgnazio AbateMaxwellWhy is Raiola in the news?He clearly knows how to get a great deal for himself and his clients but this can come at a cost of frustrating a number of top clubs.Most recently, Raiola responded to criticism from United legend Paul Scholes on Pogba following the Red Devils’ loss to Brighton last weekend. Mino Raiola is no longer just another suit in the increasingly commercialised game, he is one of the most powerful super-agents in football.With clients including Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku, he has been involved in some of the most high profile transfers of all time. 4 He was not good enough to make it as a footballer himself but was appointed FC Haarlem’s sporting director at the ripe old age of 19 after the club were impressed by his entrepreneurial skills.Raiola then moved onto an agency which looked after Dutch footballers and was involved in the deal which saw Dennis Bergkamp move from Ajax to Inter Milan in 1993.Which players does Raiola look after?Raiola has since built himself up to super-agent status with over 60 footballers on his books.The likes of Pogba, Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Blaise Matuidi are just a few players who are represented by Raiola.He was involved in the deal to bring Pogba back to Manchester United for a world record fee at the time of £86million in 2016, reportedly pocketing £41.4m in the deal. He also played his part in Lukaku’s £75m move to Old Trafford the following summer.Below you can see a list of some of his other clients. Raiola responded to Scholes’ comments questioning Pogba’s leadership skills 4 4 Raiola has been in the headlines recently, however, getting into a dispute with Manchester United legend Paul Scholes over the long-running issue of Pogba’s future at Old Trafford.But what else do we know about Raiola? Below you can see how the Italian-born agent rose up the ranks in football and which other star-studded clients are on his books.How did Raiola get into football?Although he was born in Salerno, Italy in 1967, Raiola grew up in the Netherlands, having moved to Haarlem at the age of one. He played an instrumental role in expanding his parents’ restaurant making pizza due to his dazzling sales patter. Raiola is far from friends with ex-United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who claimed he did not trust him from the moment he was the agent. 4 Raiola’s big break came when he was involved in Dennis Bergkamp’s move from Ajax to Inter Milan Raiola is involved with the former Manchester United striker Raiola reportedly pocketed £41.4million when Paul Pogba re-signed for Manchester united in 2016 last_img read more
