USA: Mueller’s report just a bump along President Donald Trump’s unique political path – By Mohamed Hamaludin

U.S. –Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report just a bump along President Donald Trump’s unique political path — By Mohamed Hamaludin

Former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director Robert Mueller III labored as special counsel for 22 months at a cost of $25 million and concluded that there were a lot of reasons to believe that a conspiracy could have taken place between Russian agents and the Donald Trump campaign but not enough evidence to prove is. He also concluded that there was, again, not enough evidence to indict Trump on obstruction but enough not to exonerate him.

Minister David Patterson welcomes public probe of US$150M CJIA renovation

Minister of Public Infrastructure, David Patterson, is open to an investigation into the spending for the US$150M Timehri airport project.

The official in response to statements of former Public Works Minister, Robeson Benn, who urged Tuesday for a public probe into the circumstances which saw the project substantially modified, said that debate ongoing is healthy for Guyana.

A Guyanese man was extradited to the United States (US) to be arraigned on a charge of murder in a New York court, a move the American embassy here said creates a new precedent for others to be possibly extradited.

The American Embassy says it notes this positive step forward and commends the Guyana government. “The Government of Guyana’s actions over the past year clearly indicate its dedication to law and order and established norms of international criminal justice – Guyana is moving in the right direction. Establishing a road map for future extraditions, bringing a fugitive to justice, making Guyana a safer place for Guyanese citizens – this is the best example of rule of law existing in Guyana,”  US Ambassador to Guyana, Sara-Ann Lynch was quoted as saying in an Embassy release.  Continue reading
