BUSINESS: Govt. gives disrespectful foreigners seven days to leave Guyana

Illegal Concrete Factory  – CHPA issues third Cease Order for construction

Ian Charles Jones

May 12, 2021 – Kaieteur News – The Government has instructed Ian Charles Jones, a Director of foreign-controlled company, Superior Concrete Inc., to leave these shores within seven days following his disrespectful actions towards enforcement officers of the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CHPA). The officers recently sought to issue an Order for his company to cease the illegal construction of a concrete factory at Houston Estates.     

There is destruction of the South Ruimveldt Gardens road leading to Houston Estates. The heavy-duty equipment used for the illegal operations contributed to this state of affairs.

The unlawful operation was first reported by this news entity on Saturday last. Kaieteur News had exposed that the company was setting up the concrete batching facility at Houston Estates without any regulatory permissions. When CHPA officers issued the first Contravention Order for all works to come to a halt, Jones destroyed the document then discarded same in the presence of officers.

In a subsequent article published on Monday, Kaieteur News exposed that Jones, was moving full speed ahead with the concrete factory to supply concrete for the construction of the new ExxonMobil Headquarters.

Following the foregoing, Minister of Housing, Collin Croal, in the company of Sherwyn Greaves, Chief Executive Officer of the Central Housing and Planning Authority (CHPA) and staff of the CHPA’s Enforcement Department visited the illegal operation with the intent of serving another cease order, but the team of Government officials and regulatory officers were treated with disrespect. This time, it was by Richard Austin Shamlin, another foreign Director of Superior Concrete Inc. Shamlin approached the team and told them to leave the premises as it is private property. He said too that he had no interest in engaging them on what they came for.

In spite of the gross disrespect, the Minister and his team followed through with their plan to issue the order. It was received by another Superior Concrete Inc. foreign Director, Maxwell Snow.

Second disrespectful foreigner given 24hrs to leave Guyana

Kaieteur News – Richard Austin Shamlin, a foreign Director of Superior Concrete Inc, has one day to leave Guyana or face deportation. This action that was handed down by government authorities comes in wake of Shamlin’s company being exposed by the media for illegally setting up a concrete factory at Houston Estates.

    Who do Jones and Shamlin think they are that they can run roughshod over the CHPA in Guyana. They should be jailed for 10 days, deported and not allowed back into the country. Phooey on them!!!
