Surinamese arraigned with possession of 103 ecstasy pills

first_imgA national of neighbouring Suriname was on Friday arraigned for allegedly having a quantity of ecstasy pills in his possession when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Donovan Saimon denied the allegation after it was read to him. The police stated that on March 18, 2019, at the Canawaima Ferry Crossing, he had 103 ecstasy pills amounting to 32 grams, in his possession.Prosecutor for the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), Narissa Leander informed the court that on the day in question, ranks of the agency acting on information went to the Canawaima Ferry Crossing, where the defendant was intercepted in a vehicle.A search unearthed the illegal drugs in the glove compartment of the motor vehicle. The pills were wrapped in a piece of cloth.Saimon was arrested and escorted to CANU headquarters where the drugs were weighed and amounted to the aforementioned figure.Saimon, under caution, later admitted to ownership of the drugs and told ranks that it was for his personal use.Prosecutor Leander objected to bail being granted based on the prevalence of such offences and due to the fact that the defendant is not a Guyanese and poses a flight risk.Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan upheld the prosecution’s submission and remanded Saimon to prison. The matter was transferred to the Springlands Magistrate’s Court for April 8, 2019.last_img read more

Govt in process of selecting Consultancy Company for hospitals’ upgrade

first_imgSome nine months after signing a multimillion-dollar Line of Credit (LOC) with the Indian Government for the upgrade of three primary healthcare facilities here, the Government of Guyana is now in the process of selecting a consultancy firm to oversee the project.Finance Minister Winston Jordan and Resident Representative of the Indian Exim Bank, Sailesh Prasad signing the LoC agreement back in July for the upgrade of the three hospitalsThis was recently revealed by Indian High Commissioner to Guyana, Venekatachalam Mahalingam during a press conference at his Church Street, Georgetown office.According to High Commissioner Mahalingam, a list of companies has already been compiled and handed over to the Guyana Government for selection.“The Government of Guyana is in the process of identifying one of the companies, which will undertake the Detail Project Report (DPR) as well as the Project Management Consultancy (PMC). That is the first step so that (the selected company) will know exactly, what are the specifications of the project that they are supposed to undertake,” the Indian diplomat had explained.Back in July last year, Finance Minister Winston Jordan signed the US$17.5 million LoC with the Export/Import (Exim) Bank of India to refurbish existing facilities and construct new buildings at the Suddie Hospital in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam); West Demerara Regional Hospital in Region Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara) and the Bartica District Hospital in Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni). The LoC will also be used to procure medical equipment to furnish the new and renovated facilities.Since the Indian Government is funding the project, it is required that the contracts be awarded to companies from that country.At the signing, Minister Jordan had stated that the upgrade of these facilities would not only improve health-care delivery in Guyana, but the project as a whole will also ease the burden currently placed on the Public Health Ministry ’s budget, which already caters for evacuating hinterland patients to the Georgetown Public Hospital during emergencies.Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence, who also witnessed the signing, indicated that primary health care was the most important level of health care. Therefore, she added, “it is incumbent on her Ministry to ensure that services, including prevention, promotion, rehabilitation and palliative care, are delivered.The Public Health Minister expressed gratitude for this gesture and assured that the LoC will be utilised to fulfil the Ministry’s mandate of enhancing the delivery of primary health care.This project is an initiative of the coalition Government, which wanted to use funds set aside for the controversial Specialty Hospital Project for the modernisation of the three primary health-care institutions.However, the Indian Government had committed to provide a separate loan to make-over the three hospitals in exchange for the Specialty Hospital project continuing. But the Specialty Hospital project fell through.With an US$18 million LoC from the Indian Exim bank, the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Administration was hoping to create a thriving health tourism industry locally with the construction of a Specialty Hospital.However, the project quickly found itself in much controversy causing the then Government to end a contract with the India-based contractor Surendra Engineering in 2014, citing instances of alleged fraud and delays. The Donald Ramotar-led regime subsequently filed a lawsuit against the firm for failing to honour its obligations. Guyana is yet to recover close to $1 billion from that company.While in Opposition, both the A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) had strongly opposed the Specialty Hospital Project and upon its assumption to office in 2015, the coalition had decided to scrap the project, which had already expended some US$4.2 million on certain preliminary works.However, after some convincing by the Indian Government, the coalition Administration hesitantly proceeded with the project, handing it over to another India-based contractor, Fedders Lloyd to complete using the remaining US$13.8 million. But a few months later, that company was blacklisted by the World Bank until 2020, forcing the project to a standstill once again.Following this, the APNU/AFC Administration got the US$18 million LoC written off, with the Indian Government taking the remaining funds and an agreement was signed for Guyana to only pay back the money that was already spent. This paved the way for the new LoC for the upgrade of the primary healthcare system.last_img read more

‘Outstanding’ Man United star was the difference, admits beaten Everton boss Martinez

first_imgRoberto Martinez felt David de Gea was the reason for Everton leaving Old Trafford empty-handed on Sunday.The Toffees suffered a 2-1 reverse against Manchester United, with Radamel Falcao scoring the winner for the home side after Steven Naismith had earlier cancelled out Angel di Maria’s opener.Martinez insists his side deserved at least a draw and pinpointed De Gea as the difference between the two sides.The Spanish stopper kept out a penalty from Leighton Baines just before half-time and capped a fine individual performance with a stunning save from Bryan Oviedo in stoppage time.“You can clearly state he is the difference in the scoreline,” said Martinez.“The scoreline would have been very different had David de Gea not been at that level today.  “He had no right to save the strike from Bryan Oviedo and it was a great save from the penalty.“His outstanding performance today has stopped us from getting a positive result.”De Gea’s fine late stop from Oviedo meant Falcao’s first strike for United proved to be the matchwinner.But Martinez was disappointed that the goal stood, with the Spaniard claiming referee Kevin Friend should have stopped the match when midfielder Steven Pienaar went down injured moments before the Colombian struck.“I’m really disappointed that the second goal was allowed to stand. Steven Pienaar was on the ground and needed to come off and we left the referee know,” he said.“The small margins today stopped us from getting a positive result that I feel we deserved if you looked at the overall performance of the two sides.”last_img read more

Growing number of government workers commit welfare fraud

first_img“She had these two identities going and LACERA and the welfare department didn’t know about it.” In June, Brown pleaded guilty to welfare fraud, was sentenced to 16 months in prison and ordered to pay $89,522 in restitution, according to court records. And she is one of a growing number of government and private sector workers who are using similar schemes to fraudulently collect welfare benefits, Baker said. The District Attorney’s Office recently prosecuted some U.S. Postal Service employees who were fraudulently collecting welfare benefits while working for the government. “We’ve found that in all our public benefit systems that people are establishing two identities to fraudulently collect benefits,” Baker said. “In some cases, they are collecting Supplemental Security Income benefits under one identity and also receiving In-Home Supportive Services benefits as being disabled. “In the Section 8 program, a person might be receiving Section 8 benefits and welfare under one identity, and under another identity they own the home in which they are living and are being paid by Section 8, too. These double-identity schemes in Los Angeles County are a major problem. And they are often only caught by accident.” Brown’s case is one of several detailed in Auditor-Controller Tyler McCauley’s Fraud Hotline report released this week, showing fraud investigations in county government rose 19 percent over the prior six-month period. The number of new investigations rose from 281 in the six-month period ended March 31 to 348 in the six-month period ended Sept. 30. The report included an unusually large number of cases with high dollar losses. Taxpayer losses in the most recent period totaled $616,684, up from $239,475 in the prior period. Other cases included: A Los Angeles County Probation Department employee allegedly forged documents and fraudulently collected more than $130,000 in death benefits, even though her husband is still alive. Prosecution is pending. A Department of Health Services manager allegedly approved an employee’s time cards for hours he did not work, resulting in $118,471 in overpayments over three years. The employee resigned and disciplinary action is pending against the manager. A Department of Mental Health provider allegedly submitted improper claims and falsified supporting documents resulting in $223,000 in unsupported billings for client counseling sessions. The case was referred to the district attorney for review.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! In 1988, Rita Brown started working as a retirement benefit specialist for Los Angeles County, using her Social Security number and California driver license to obtain the post. But using a second Social Security number and a second California driver license in the name of Rita Kay Fellows, she then began collecting welfare benefits from the county Department of Public Social Services. Over the next 19 years, the Pasadena resident lived a double-identity – working for the Los Angeles County Employees Retirement Association, an agency that administers $40 billion in pension funds, and collecting welfare benefits under an alias until she was finally caught, according to court records and interviews with officials. “She had a double identity going,” said James Baker, assistant head deputy district attorney in the Welfare Fraud Division. “Under one identity, she was a LACERA employee and under another identity she was collecting welfare for years and years. last_img read more
