Roger Khan

Guyanese Shaheed ‘ Roger’ Khan, who was deported from the United States (US) Friday night, was immediately taken into custody for the murder of African rights activist, Ronald Waddell and former boxing coach, Donald Allison, his lawyer Glen Hanoman said early  Saturday.

“He is going to be kept in custody. The police are investigating two matters….I was informed that allegations were put to him in my absence. Those allegations related to the murder of Donald Allison and (Ronald ) Waddell and that he would be kept in custody pending investigation so there has been no decision but they are investigating those specific matters so I think we have to allow those investigations to continue,” Hanoman said.              Continue reading

Guyanese murder-accused extradited to US: creates precedent – US Ambassador

Troy Thomas is en route to the United States to face justice for criminal acts he allegedly committed in New York in 2011.     

Troy Thomas

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

Guyana: Thieving and Corruption Now Part of National Culture – By Ralph Ramkarran

(On behalf of this blog and its readers, I extend to President Granger best wishes for a speedy recovery).

Firemen are first responders who are required to help and protect victims and their property. While purporting to do so, many fireman seize the opportunity to steal from victims. The stealing of property by firemen from the Fly Jamaica aircraft which had mechanical problems and landed with some difficulty at the CJIA, is a shameless and sickening disgrace. It was far more extensive than has been reported.    Continue reading

We need to talk about an injustice | Bryan Stevenson – TED talk

In an engaging and personal talk — with cameo appearances from his grandmother and Rosa Parks — human rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson shares some hard truths about America’s justice system, starting with a massive imbalance along racial lines: a third of the country’s black male population has been incarcerated at some point in their lives. These issues, which are wrapped up in America’s unexamined history, are rarely talked about with this level of candor, insight and persuasiveness.

This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER Bryan Stevenson · Public-interest lawyer. 
Bryan Stevenson is the founder and executive director of the Equal Justice Initiative, fighting poverty and challenging racial discrimination in the criminal justice system.

All our political leaders must embrace the desire for change

It is a moot point as to whether the PPP/C recognises this, so intent are they on maintaining the narrative that whatever ills the country might be suffering are the fault of Mr Forbes Burnham (who died in 1985) and the PNC (defeated at the polls in 1992). Indeed, so keen are they to trumpet their success in developing the country during the past 23 years that party apparatchiks like Mr Hydar Ally can speak of “the creation of a modern and broad-based economy,” as in a letter to the editor on Wednesday.   Continue reading
