Jagdeo-Kissoon Libel Case – Diplomatic nominees

Jagdeo-Kissoon Libel Case  – Diplomatic nominees

By Denis Scott Chabrol – (Demerara Waves) 20-September-2011

Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr. Roger Luncheon on Tuesday said he was unaware of the yard-stick being used to select nominees for Guyanese envoys abroad and he admitted that several named ambassadors do not have any diplomatic experience.

The revelations were made when he was cross-examined by Defence Attorney, Nigel Hughes in High Court libel case between President Bharrat Jagdeo and newspaper columnist, Freddie Kissoon.

The lawyer set out to justify Kissoon’s assertion in one of his Kaieteur News newspaper columns that Jagdeo is an ideological racist, a description that prompted Jagdeo to seek GUY$10 million in damages for libel.  The defence on Tuesday sought to prove that the sale of land and state property, ambassadorial appointments and the provision of sports facilities discriminated against African Guyanese.   more

Also:

Kissoon’s references to King Kong didn’t specifically point to anyone- Luncheon

The Dalai Lama comments on ‘Humanity’

A question was posed to Dalai Lama:

“What is the thing about HUMANITY that surprises you the most?”

His answer was as follows:
“Man” – Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices his money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he doesn’t enjoy the present, And as a result he doesn’t live in the present or the future.

And he lives as if he’s never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
