Shining Light for Easter Sprint

first_imgIt’s holiday racing at Caymanas Park today, the 11-race programme featuring the 3-y-o and up overnight allowance race for the Easter Sprint Trophy over 1100 metres.Ten starters have been declared, including leading lights SHINING LIGHT, DWAYNE STAR, RED FLAG, SILVER CLOUD and ACTION MAN.All should ensure a keenly contested race over this snappy trip, with the likes of RED FLAG, ACTION MAN and LADY SHANKARI coming to make things pretty hot on the headlines, with the trio of SHINING LIGHT, SILVER CLOUD and hat-trick seeker DWAYNE STAR coming on strongly in the last furlong.The veteran campaigner RED FLAG from the Solomon Sharpe stables has been knocking at the door for the longest while and could prove strongest of the speedsters. However, they should play into the hands of the progressive four-year-old colts SHINING LIGHT and DWAYNE STAR, both winners in recent months.The Patrick Lynch-trained DWAYNE STAR looked much improved when slamming hot favourite FORTUNEONEHUNDRED by 7 1/2 lengths over the round five course in high claiming company on February 13 and now steps up to overnight company. Having worked well, this will not deter the son of Storm Craft, who looks tempting at the weights with 51.0kg and in-form Aaron Chatrie aboard.Still, preference is for the Gary Griffiths -trained SHINING LIGHT, who notched his last win over this trip in restricted company on January 16 and has run some big races in defeat since, despite not having the best of luck in running.SHINING LIGHT failed by only half a length to catch EDISON over 1300 metres in overnight company when last raced on March 5, but could well have won had he not encountered traffic problems. Back in action from the convenient mark of 52.0kg, the chestnut colt by Seeking The Glory out of Bachelor Of Arts is preferred to DWAYNE STAR.His ability to quicken under pressure in the closing stages should make the difference. Shamaree Muir, who won aboard him on January 16, again has the ride.last_img read more

Govt to request review of new charges against Ministers

first_img– AG says DPP’s decision to drop previous charges justifiedGovernment will be moving to formally request a review of the private criminal charges recently made against three senior Ministers in the coalition in relation to the controversial D’Urban Park Project.This is according to Attorney General Basil Williams while speaking on the sidelines of a conference on Monday. He explained that while a formal request was not made for the two previous charges, one would be made for these new charges.He was referring to charges made against Finance Minister Winston Jordan;Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Basil WilliamsPublic Infrastructure Minister David Patterson and Public Service Minister, Dr Rupert Roopnaraine.“I think if that has not been done, we are in the process of doing that,” he explained.The charges against the Ministers alleged a breach of the Procurement Act in relation to the expenditure of $906 million in public funds to Homestretch Development Inc for the construction of the Park.Jordan and Patterson have been jointly charged with misconduct and abuse of public trust for having allegedly authorised the payment. Dr Roopnaraine, on the other hand, who was a director of the company, has been charged with alleged misconduct and abuse of public trust.Previous to that, Ministers Volda Lawrence and Dr George Norton were charged over the sole sourcing of over $600 million in drugs and other pharmaceuticals for the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation and the rental of a house in Sussex Street, Albouystown, Georgetown, to be utilised as a drug bond at a cost of $12 million monthly, respectively.The charges were filed against the current and former Public Health Ministers on April 19, 2018, but were discontinued by Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Shalimar Ali-Hack. However, the Attorney General has admitted that no formal request was ever made to have these charges reviewed.At a press conference held on Saturday, April 21, 2018, Williams stated that the Government expects” the DPP to review the private criminal charges filed against the Ministers.The applicants’ Attorney, former Attorney General Anil Nandlall said given the quick action by the DPP, it was now apparent that even without a request, the Government’s expectations were met.Nandlall highlighted that while charges were discontinued against the two Ministers, no consideration was given to the formal request made to have the charges dropped against former People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) senior functionaries, Dr Ashni Singh and Winston Brassington, who were charged with three counts of misconduct in public office contrary to common law.In his response, Williams said, “I can’t be blamed for their lack of knowledge of the law. I…outlined the powers of the DPP, and the DPP had to be proactive. Why the DPP has power over all prosecutions in the country? And those that she didn’t initiate, she could intervene in – continue or discontinue them.”The DPP has not provided any updates on the request for the review of the charges against Dr Singh and Brassington, but did state her reasons for discontinuing those against Dr Norton and Lawrence.According to a recent statement from her office, Ali-Hack made the decision to discontinue the charges in the interest of good governance. She explained that such allegations ought first to have been reported to the Guyana Police Force for an investigation to be launched and the advice of the DPP sought.Nandlall, representing Dr Singh, said there was nothing that conferred a power on the DPP to be responsible for “good governance in the State of Guyana, especially in Article 187 of the Constitution, which sets out the functions of the DPP”.In this regard, he claimed that the DPP has clearly been influenced by extraneous and irrelevant considerations, and has acted ultra vires and unconstitutionally by ascribing to her office functional responsibility with which it is not endowed. He also plans to challenge this decision in court.The former Minister has pointed out that the institution of private criminal charges has been part of the local criminal jurisprudence for over a century. He reminded that it was always initiated by a private individual without the involvement of the Police and the DPP, and that there was absolutely no known legal requirement that the allegation must first be reported to the Police and the advice of the DPP sought.In fact, Nandlall argued that in many instances, it is the failure of the Guyana Police Force to act, or to act professionally, that led to the evolution and practice of private criminal charges.last_img read more

Teen killed after allegedly riding into minibus’s path

first_imgA 17-year-old labourer is the latest road fatality after he allegedly rode into the path of a speeding minibus along the Good Faith Public Road, East Coast Demerara (ECD) on Monday evening.Dead: Ricardo JamesDead is Ricardo James of Lot 12 Recess Village, Mahaicony, ECD.According to reports, the minibus, PTT 5273, was proceeding West along the roadway while the teenage cyclist was heading East.However, it is alleged that the young man suddenly swerved into the path of the bus and collided with the front left side. As a result, the front wheel of the pedal cycle was dislodged, resulting in the young man falling to the roadway where he sustained severe head injuries.He was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to the Mahaicony Cottage Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The driver of the minibus was taken into Police custody as traffic ranks conduct their investigations.When contacted, the teen’s mother, Donna Madray explained that her family was originally from Moruca, North West District (NWD), but just over a year ago, they took up residency at Recess.She explained that her now dead son, Ricardo, left Moruca at the age of 14 and stayed with her brother on the Linden- Soesdyke Highway where he assisted him on a chicken farm. After spending some time there, he migrated to Suriname.He, however, returned to Guyana two months ago. In tears, the grieving mother related that her son would have been celebrating his 18th birthday on Thursday. She explained that James worked with her husband, who is a contractor, and on Monday they worked for half the day.“He come home about 1pm (13:00h) and he helped do some work in the yard … then he left about 6pm (18:00h) to go meet his friend …that is the only friend he has since he came to live with us,” she posited.Madray explained that although the accident occurred about 20:30h, she learnt of her son’s demise after 23:00h. She was informed of the accident by two Police ranks who visited her home. Upon receiving the news, she went to the Mahaicony Hospital, but was told that her son’s body was already in the mortuary.As she enquired from her son’s friend what took place, he reportedly told her that after James arrived at his place, he left soon afterwards to purchase cigarettes and after some time had elapsed and he did not see him return, he went to look for him.“He tell me that as he was searching, he saw my son’s bicycle in the middle of the road and after he find out, he was told that there was an accident,” the woman cried. She is, however, furious that the friend did not inform her earlier of the accident and ultimately the loss of her son’s life. She described her son as a hard-working person who always looked out for his young siblings. He was the second of seven children.The Police stated that a post-mortem would be performed on the teen’s body on Friday. He leaves to mourn his parents and six siblings.
