first_imgFloyd Primo called “Wild Buck”, 31, of Lot 80 D’Urban Street, Georgetown, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts Friday slapped with fraud charges.Floyd PrimoIt is alleged that between May 6 and 27, 2015 at Georgetown with intent to defraud ‘Wild Buck’ took $13,750,000 from Karen Persaud pretending to be the owner of a piece of land located at Lot 40 Public Road, Kitty, Georgetown.‘Wild Buck’s Attorney George Thomas in a bail application told the court his client was not the one whom the VC had the agreement with, rather one Marjorie Edinboro, who was also fingered in the fraud probe.He requested that Magistrate McLennan take into consideration that Primo never collected a cheque from Persaud.Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers however strongly opposed bail, pointing out that the defendant has pending matters in court and more importantly a wanted bulletin was issued for him in 2015 and he had failed to turn himself over law enforcement officers.Jeffers stated also that Primo along with others took $13, 750,000 cash from Persaud under false pretence and that he is the owner of the land at the aforementioned plot in Kitty. Primo claimed he was the owner of the land which he provided documents for, but upon the plaintiff’s arrival at the Deeds Registry, Primo was in the possession of a fake Identification Card. He then left for another ID card but never returned.Chief Magistrate McLennan overruled the bail application and remanded the man to prison.The case will continue on June 13.last_img read more

first_imgThe Guyana Prison Service (GPS) has no resources, financial or human, to deal with mentally ill prisoners. ThisCoI Commissioners Dale Erskine, Chairman James Patterson and Merle Mendoncawas concluded by the Commission of Inquiry into the deadly Camp Street Prison riot which occurred earlier this year. According to findings of the CoI report, the GPS was noted as “the major casualty of as an inexcusably primitive approach” to mental health in Guyana.The Commissioners pointed out that even though the prison service lacks the requisite resources to integrate the psychologically challenged inmates; those who pass through the courts still end up in the facilities of the over-crowded penitentiary. While the Commissioners recommended that the Public Health Ministry provide a full-time medical doctor at the prison, they noted that the delivery of routine medical care, including mental health services, remains a constant problem.It was further pointed out that the lack of medical care brings “systematic hardship on all aspects of prison life” since less concern is devoted to the stressful effect on other prisoners who live with mentally ill inmates in the over-crowded spaces.Commissioners also recommended that an intervention led by the Public Health Ministry in collaboration with the magistracy, the Police and the prison service is urgently needed to better integrate these prisoners.When Chief Prison Officer, Medex Patricia Anderson testified to the Commission, she noted the grave emotional impact which the riots had on the staff of the prison. At that point, Chairman Patterson expressed shock that the prison did not have a permanent doctor stationed there.The CoI ran from March 8 to May 9, 2016 and the report was handed over to the President David Granger on the first of June. The Head of State ordered the inquiry into the fire after inmates met with Minister of State Joseph Harmon and Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan after a “gentlemen’s agreement” was reached. It was after two days of rioting at the Camp Street penitentiary and the death of 17 inmates after fire engulfed the Capital A Block on March 3.It was concluded that the fires were as a result of the actions by inmates.last_img read more

first_imgCarter Center report…recommends strengthening of GECOMThe Carter Center has repeated its longstanding support for fundamental constitutional reform in Guyana that attenuates the problems with the current winner-take-all system.The electoral observer mission noted that the urgency of this challenge was made greater with the anticipated influx of oil revenue, which has the potential to exacerbate ethnic and political conflicts.These positions were detailed in the final report released on Wednesday by the Carter Center on its observation activities in relation to the 2015 General and Regional Elections in Guyana.The report summarises the observations and makes recommendations to the Guyanese authorities to improve future elections to help bring the system in line with international standards for democratic elections.The A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) coalition had campaigned heavily on the need for constitutional reform, but this desire seemingly has been placed on the back burner of the Administration.Former Speaker of the National Assembly, Ralph Ramkarran had noted that the Administration seemed to have lost its interest for these constitutional changes.Government appointed a committee headed by Attorney and former AFC Chairman Nigel Hughes to examine the process for constitutional reform. While the committee presented its report to Government almost a year ago, no movement has been seen.According to reports, that document is still before the Cabinet and the process appears to have been stalled.Aside from constitutional reform, the report also includes a compendium of reform recommendations from previous Carter Center election observation missions and makes new recommendations, including the need to re-evaluate the electoral system to increase the accountability of politicians to the electors and to equalise representation of women in Parliament.The report also recommended that individuals stand for election to the presidency and consider adopting a ranked-choice voting system to give greater incentive for candidates to appeal to more than their base voters.It also suggested that authorities ensure geographic seats are more equitably distributed among electors, clarify the law and procedures for recounts and consolidate electoral laws to make the rules of the game more easily accessible.Other recommendations are to strengthen the professionalism and independence of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) by closely evaluating the structure, recruitment, and training of GECOM staff and Commissioners.The Carter Center May 15 election observation mission in Guyana launched on April 8, 2015, following an invitation from the Office of the President.It was led by former US President Jimmy Carter, Dame Audrey Glover of the United Kingdom, and Dame Billie Miller of Barbados. Six medium-term observers from six countries were deployed throughout the country in advance of Election Day to assess election preparations.On Election Day, 53 observers from 26 countries visited 297 polling stations in all 10 Regions to observe voting, counting, tabulation, and the declaration of results. The Carter Center remained in Guyana to observe the post-election environment.last_img read more

first_img“When we serve a search warrant, we go into these homes and often times there are children,” Munoz said. “There’s drugs, weapons, firearms and narcotics lying around, and DCFS comes in after us and oftentimes they will place a child – basically rescue a child – from that environment.” The sweep comes after a surge in murders in the Industry Station’s jurisdiction last year, putting the station third in gang slayings behind crime-infested areas patrolled by the sheriff’s Compton and Century stations. (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2730 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Early morning police raids in Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties on Wednesday netted suspected gang members, firearms and thousands in cash, sheriff’s Industry Station deputies said. The sweep – which took place at 16 locations in Chino Hills, Fontana, Bassett, West Valinda, Pomona, and county land bordering West Covina – is part of an ongoing gang-suppression effort in response to recent murders and shootings in the Valinda Corridor, Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies said. The search warrants targeted members of the Bassett Street gang and the West Side Pomona gang, and six suspects were arrested on a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges, deputies said. “We were actually pretty happy with what we recovered,” Operation Safe Streets Sgt. Sal Munoz said. In addition to the arrests, deputies found several handguns, a rifle, a small amount of narcotics, and an “undetermined sum” of money. “It’s still being counted, but it’s well over $30,000,” Munoz said. “We take a high-profile, strong stance against these gangs so that people can walk down the streets, go to the parks, and go shopping without fear of a drive-by shooting, without being terrorized by these thugs,” Munoz said. But deputies said they could not discuss which murder cases, shootings and assaults they believed the six arrestees were linked to, nor several other details of the sweep. “We don’t want to reveal the crimes we believe them to be involved in because then we will alert \ to what we are doing and looking for,” said OSS Lt. George Zagurski. The morning operation involved several agencies and stations, including the sheriff’s Walnut Station, the Pomona Police Department, the county Probation Department, and the county’s Department of Children and Family Services. last_img read more
