Jagdeo, David Patterson, Khemraj Ramjattan and the IAC – By Freddie Kissoon

Jagdeo, David Patterson, Khemraj Ramjattan and the IAC – By Freddie Kissoon

By Freddie Kissoon

The brother of Minister David Patterson was arrested for narcotics in Grenada. Before that, there was a celebration in the New Amsterdam prison where prohibited items were in use. Bharrat Jagdeo took some nasty swipes at Minister Patterson. The Indian Arrival Committee (IAC) took some nasty swipes too at Khemraj Ramjattan, Minister of Security.

Jagdeo thinks Patterson should do the right thing insinuating that he should resign though Jagdeo stated that the Opposition Leader is not calling on Patterson to resign. The IAC is demanding Ramjattan’s resignation. Both Jagdeo and the IAC are creatures from another world that the Guyanese people need to read up on. Here are some notes about them.    Continue reading

The crime plague 2002-2006: Revelations that will kill PPP leaders

 Feb 01, 2018  – By Freddie Kissoon 

Mr. Jagdeo has gone on the offensive with the announcement that there will be a judicial inquiry into the crime vortex that almost drowned society between the years 2002 – when the infamous jail break took place – and 2006 when it abated. Mr. Jagdeo for the past three days has accused big wigs in the then-opposition PNC of having connections to the mayhem that emanated from Buxton.     Continue reading

Notable Guyanese who died in 2012

Posted By Staff Writer On January 1, 2013

While many were anxious to welcome this New Year, 2012 will be forever etched in the minds of those whose lives were touched in one way or the other by the Guyanese greats who passed away this year.

They included professionals, artistes and even the world’s oldest blogger at the time of his passing. Stabroek News reflects on the lives of 19 persons who have left indelible impressions on so many.

January 13: Legendary music and boxing promoter Cyril Shaw died at the age of 89. Shaw is best remembered for the invaluable contribution he made in launching and promoting the career of world renowned Calypso King, the Mighty Sparrow and local calypsonians such as Lord Canary, King Fighter, Lady Guymine and many others. Shaw, according to friends and business associates, was a sterling example of the promoter every artist or entertainer longed for since many times he left himself and family without to satisfy the needs of those who entrusted him with managing and promoting their career.                 Continue reading

Fudging the books – Commentary

Fudging the books

MARCH 8, 2012 | BY  | FILED UNDER EDITORIAL

It is clear that the Guyana Police Force received a sum of money during the pre- and post-elections period late last year. The police were requested to be in-lying and so be ready to move in the event of any eventuality.

A sum of money was spent for the upkeep of the force during the elections. We know that this year the government approached the National Assembly for a supplementary provision of $90.6 million to cover the cost of feeding and transporting the police during the elections period, and to ensure the mobility of the police  during the intensification of patrols in and around the city.

President Bharrat Jagdeo, in response to a question, said that his government had released $90 million to the police for the elections. We duly reported this fact and questioned the extent of this expenditure. The authorities never responded. Weeks went by; Divisional Commanders commented on the situation to report that they never received any money.
Instead, they said that they sought assistance from the business community for food and other supplies needed during the elections period. Again we asked questions about this $90.6 million, only to be met with a wall of silence. We tried to get answers at the Annual Police Officers’ Conference and got none. Continue reading

Greene’s conduct cause for concern – gov’t  – Updates

(Demerara Waves) – February 8, 2012

The government on Wednesday, February 8, 2012,  acknowledged that the conduct of Commissioner of Police Henry Greene is cause for concern in light of his admission of sexual contact with a woman who had gone to him for assistance.

The woman has accused the Greene of raping her on November 22 last but the Top Cop is arguing in court documents that the sex was consensual. Greene has since secured a High Court order barring the police from charging him with rape as advised by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

Addressing a reporter’s question at his post-Cabinet news briefing Cabinet Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon admitted that the government was more concerned with the outcome of the rape allegation against the Commissioner.    more

A few days short of KWANZAA celebrations in the Diaspora, messed-up Commissioner of the Guyana Police Force, Henry Greene, is demanding that all his outstanding mess-bills be covered and or written off.  Mr. Greene is also demanding an exit package tantamount to and similar to that given to Bharrat Jagdeo.

Mr. Greene, who is a legal luminary and greedy pimpernel, is pointing his finger at Jagdeo and his cohorts for allegedly getting him in “this mess.’  Jagdeo/Roger Khan Inc chauffeured Greene into the top-cop position against the advice and counsel of  US, Canadian and European embassies.    Continue reading
