Police in ‘B’ Division (Berbice) are investigating the alleged rape of a teenage girl in her home by a family friend, who was vacationing in Guyana recently.According to reports, the 15-year-old high school student who hails from Berbice, was at home alone with “an older gentleman” who was visiting from the United States and was staying at her house.Guyana Times understands that the 57-year-old overseas-based Guyanese is a friend of the teen’s grandmother and would stay at their home whenever he is visiting.It is alleged that the incident took place on August 16, however the matter was only reported to the Police on Wednesday night, by which time the alleged rapist had already returned to the US.Commander of ‘B’ Division, Ian Amsterdam, pointed out that the fact that the family waited some two weeks before lodging a complaint with the Police allowed the alleged perpetrator to return to the USA.“When they came to make the report it was too late to arrest him because they made it when the man had already gone out of Guyana. However, we are still pursuing this case and whenever he returns to Guyana he will be apprehended and we will send the file to the Director of Public Prosecutions for advice on the way forward. We are not closing the case just because he isn’t here. Personally I will ensure that it is not left like this. If he is guilty then justice needs to be served,” Amsterdam vowed.While investigations continue, the Divisional Commander is urging persons who have been physically or sexually assaulted to come forward as soon as possible and make an official report to Police so that the perpetrators can be dealt with accordingly.Amsterdam further lamented that there are many cases which do not even come to the Police directly as well as the fact that some persons take a long time before they come to the Police for help.“The sooner they come then the sooner we can help them and the faster we can ensure that the guilty people are caught…If people do not come forward then they are denying themselves justice and delaying it also. So I want people to rest assured that when you come forward and make your report we will handle your cases fairly and in a timely manner,” the Commander assured.
A West Coast Demerara businessman is ready to move to the courts since he believes that Police, without authority, are unlawfully forcing minibus operators to remove their ‘wrap designs’.The proprietor of Unstoppable Auto Sales, whose only name was given as Danny, explained his misery and noted that the minibuses are only designed to “catch the passengers’ eyes”.A few of the wrapped minibuses at the Square of the RevolutionHe explained that he has several buses that work on the West Bank and West Coast of Demerara; and in one instance, when a Police Officer stopped his driver, he said he did not care whether the colours of the wrap design were on the registration or not, he wanted to see a “plain bus”.On Friday, Danny posted that one of his minibuses was detained at the Vreed-en-Hoop Police Station simply because of an ‘XO’ design was at the front of the bus. He noted that his ‘fitness’ was even revoked for the modest design.The businessman claims this type of Police behaviour is unlawful, and he even had one of his colleagues consult a lawyer on the issue.When Guyana Times contacted that colleague, who gave his name as Justus, he related, “We have a couple of buses working on the road because of course that’s a source of income for us, and we are getting some issues with the Police because they are telling us that they don’t want this stripe and that stripe, and all the colours on the bus are on the registration and I don’t know why they are locking up these buses, and we are losing a lot of days’ work. “I made contact with my lawyer, and we were seeking to get some advice as to why (this is so), and he was saying that as far as he knows, there is no law which says that you cannot have more than one colour on your vehicle or so”.Justus further stated that hundreds of thousands of dollars were invested to make the buses attractive to passengers. He argued that now more money will be spent to remove those designs and respray the buses.Contacted, Police Public Relations Officer Jairam Ramlakhan said he was unable to say specifically which section of the law dictates that minibuses should be plain-coloured.He therefore referred this publication to Traffic Chief Ramesh Ashram, who also failed to say specifically which section of law provides for buses to be plain-coloured. Ashram would say only that the provisions for this initiative are in the Motor Vehicles and Road Traffic Act 51:02.As such, the businessman is gearing to file his lawsuit against the Guyana Police Force via his attorney. He is likely to secure the support of the scores of drivers whose minibuses have been seized over the past few weeks. Back in March, a campaign was implemented to strip all minibuses that had wrap designs. The defaulting vehicles were taken to the Brickdam Police Station.The acting Traffic Chief had estimated that over 30 minibuses had breached the traffic regulations by possessing these ‘wraps’.Meanwhile, the affected drivers have related that the initiative has affected their livelihood, as they continue to lose money while their minibuses are parked.Citizens who use the buses as sole source of transportation also expressed their concern, noting that when the minibuses were not functioning, it was difficult to get to their destinations. However, the acting Traffic Chief noted that this could be avoided if the traffic rules and regulations are followed.Following this episode, minibus operators had staged a protest calling for the Police to put an end to the campaign. They said they feel they are being harassed. The vibrantly coloured buses were registered to the following routes: Kitty-Campbellville (40), Stabroek-South (41), Georgetown-Timehri (42), Georgetown-Mahaica (44), Stabroek-Albert (45) and Stabroek-Sophia (48).

WASHINGTON – Backed by dozens of environmental groups and other states, top California officials demanded federal permission Tuesday to impose controls on greenhouse-gas emissions from cars and other vehicles. The lone voice of opposition at an Environmental Protection Agency hearing came from an auto industry lobbyist who deemed California’s approach “counterproductive” and said there was no proof it would help reduce global warming. “This is more important than any issue that EPA’s going to have to face,” California Attorney General Jerry Brown told regulators who will recommend whether to give California the waiver it needs to implement its tailpipe-emissions law. At least 11 other states are ready to follow California’s lead if it gets permission to go forward. Brown asked the hearing panel to take a message to EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson. “We want him to speak truth to power,” said Brown. “There is a tremendous influence of the oil industry. We know (Vice President) Cheney and (President) Bush are oilmen, they think like oil folks. … We say grant the waiver.” At issue is a 2002 California law that requires automakers to cut emissions by 25 percent from cars and light trucks and 18 percent from sport utility vehicles starting with the 2009 model year. California officials estimate this would lead to an 18 percent reduction in global-warming emissions from cars in the state by 2020. But the law can’t take effect unless California gets a federal waiver.

SAN DIMAS – Shull Elementary School received a gift Wednesday from the most unusual of donors – someone who vandalized the school 32 years ago.Brought in by a student and given to Principal Chris Ann Horsley, the $2,500 cashier’s check came with an anonymous note three sentences long.Addressed to Horsley, the letter reads: “Approximately 32 years ago, myself and a group of local kids broke into a classroom and vandalized the room terribly. I have felt guilty for far too long and want to give something back to the school that I personally took from. I am sorry for any grief that I caused anyone at that time.”It was signed “A Regretful Baby-Boomer.”The gift of $2,500 would have been worth $568 in 1973 dollars.Horsley said the school, which opened in 1960, doesn’t have records dating to 1973. But second-grade teacher Delphine Kiser, who has worked at Shull for 33 years, remembers her classroom was broken into during her early years.Vandals broke a window, scattered papers and sprinkled dry tempera paint on everything, Kiser said. She doesn’t remember whether anyone was caught.Even so, Horsley said she doesn’t plan to investigate the donor’s identity.“The person wanted to be anonymous,” Horsley said. “We’re very grateful for someone taking personal responsibility for 30 years ago.”Kiser said the gift restores faith in mankind and in second chances.“Hopefully the person will learn how delighted we are that they have come around,” Kiser said. “As a teacher, you always hope that those that are challenges as they go through school that they will come out to be wonderful citizens and will do wonderful things for the world.” firstname.lastname@example.org(626) 962-8811, Ext. 2513

QPR’s miserable season now looks likely to include an FA Cup exit at home to League One opposition.MK Dons took the lead after only four minutes, with Rangers left-back Armand Traore possibly getting the final touch after Shaun Williams’ right-wing corner had been nudged on by Dean Lewington.Traore responded by bringing a save from David Martin with a rasping shot and the visiting keeper also denied Jamie Mackie as he looked to latch onto Jay Bothroyd’s clever pass.But Rangers continued to look vulnerable at the back and were undone again when Ryan Lowe raced through and fired past Robert Green.Bobby Zamora, sidelined since November with a hip problem, is among QPR’s substitutes.QPR (4-4-2): Green, Fabio, Ben Haim, Ferdinand, Traore; Park, Granero, Faurlin, Mackie; Campbell, Bothroyd.Subs: Murphy, Derry, Hill, Onuoha, Ephraim, Zamora, Mbia.Click here for our QPR v MK Dons quiz 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
3 April 2007The European Union (EU) is finalising an agreement that will see it contribute more than R9-billion toward its development programme in South Africa over the next six years.According to Foreign Affairs Director-General Ayanda Ntsaluba, the development programme will take place between 2007 and 2013, and will focus on areas such as skills development, small business support and strengthening the capacity of institutions in the country.Ntsaluba met with the European Union director-general for development Stefan Manservisi last week to negotiate the renewal of the Trade and Development Cooperation Agreement (TDCA) between South African and the EU.The agreement seeks to build partnerships between SA and the EU in the areas of political dialogue, trade, development and economic cooperation.According to Manservisi, the EU remains committed to assisting South Africa with its development, and the new financial assistance would make SA one of the top five recipients of European assistance.Ntsaluba pointed out that the EU was a vital trading partner, accounting for around 40% of SA’s imports and exports, and that last year alone the EU’s foreign direct investment into South Africa amounted to over R44.5-billion.He explained that when the agreement was conceived, all parties had agreed to include a compulsory mid-term review after five years of implementation.“We have already made substantial progress in negotiations regarding texts and trust that the TDCA will soon reflect the depth of relations that has led us to begin discussing the establishment of a strategic partnership between the EU and South Africa,” Ntsaluba said.He added that both parties had identified the potential for broadening their co-operation through the review of the TDCA and had therefore seized the opportunity to discuss issues of global concern, including the Millennium Development Goals.“We will, after this session, discuss issues involving the African agenda, non-proliferation and development co-operation,” Ntsaluba said, adding that they were preparing for a meeting of the ministerial troika of the EU with South Africa to be held in May.Manservisi explained that at the end of the current implementation of the agreement, 95% of South African goods would enter the EU duty free and around 80% of the EU’s goods would be exempt from duties when entering South Africa.“We are already well advanced and I am confident that our relations can be strengthened and further opportunities created for the region,” he said.Source: BuaNews
