By: Devina SamarooNearly four years have elapsed since Community Development Councils (CDC) across the country have had their elections, and sheer chaos is reigning in those communities where there is a desperate yearning for theYvonne PearsonBrentnol Ashelyremoval of dictatorial leaders.Region One (Barima-Waini) Regional Chairman Brentnol Ashley during an interview with Guyana Times disclosed that there are tremendous administrative and community problems occurring in the CDCs within his district, owing to the fact that residents are beyond aggrieved over the protracted suspension of elections.“Because of no elections, there is a decay in the council itself. The leadership is done in a dictatorial manner where only one person is making the decisions for the community, and it is chaos,” Ashley related.CDC elections were supposed to be held last year along with the National Toshaos Elections; however government took a decision to suspend the elections until further notice.Ministerial Adviser on Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Mervyn William had explained to this newspaper that the ministry was only mandated to supervise elections for Amerindian Villages (meaning those villages with Amerindian Land Titles).ResponsibilityDuring the interview, he had sympathised with the fact that the CDC-run villages needed elections, but he made it clear that the responsibility was not with the Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministry: “We inherited an operation that was a bit snub … The previous Administration created CDCs, but there is no statutory body that provides for CDC. It is not provided for by law… the Ministry only supervises Amerindian Villages. I guess the AREOs were accustomed to running these elections in this manner, but the Ministry is not responsible for elections in CDCs,” he had stated.Williams added that the Communities Ministry, headed by Ronald Bulkan, is likely to oversee the elections in the CDCs.However, former Advisor to the Amerindian Affairs Minister Yvonne Pearson had disregarded the above justification.In an invited comment, Pearson previously pointed out that the Amerindian Act 2006 shows that there was a clear distinction between an Amerindian Village and an Amerindian Community, and that the Ministry in charge has responsibility for both.According to the Act, an Amerindian Village means “a group of Amerindians occupying or using Village lands; “Village lands” means lands owned communally by a Village under title granted to a Village Council to hold for the benefit of the Village”, whereas an Amerindian Community is “a group of Amerindians organised as a traditional community with a common culture and occupying or using the State lands which they have traditionally occupied or used”.Pearson argued therefore that both Community Councils and Village Councils fall under the responsibility of the Ministry.MeetingSince the suspension of the elections last year, government is yet to announce a way forward with the Regional Chairman contending that the longer it takes for a decision to be made, the more chaotic the situation will become.Ashley came down to Georgetown earlier this week to visit the respective ministries with the intention of discussing the issues but his journey turned out to be in vain.According to Ashley, when he arrived at both the Communities and Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministry, he was informed that there were no available persons to meet with him on the matter.ResourcesHowever, the Regional Chairman said he finds it odd that while the Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Ministry is claiming to have no control over the CDCs and their elections, they are still providing resources to the communities to carry out its functions: “How effective is it that you are still supporting and giving resources yet you find it difficult, you are saying it is unconstitutional for the Ministry of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs to carry out elections in these communities. I don’t understand what is the concept that is trying to be displayed here,” Ashley expressed in utter bewilderment. Moreover, he pointed out that because one person alone is in charge of the communities, resources are often abused and used for personal interest instead of for the benefit of the people.“Because it is one person, the chairperson, when assets are given, it becomes as though the asset belongs to that individual and the community does not benefit from it.The process of accountability, the financial resources, are being given and the communities are not benefitting and they are not accounting to the community for their actions,” he explained.He highlighted that in many cases, the chairperson is also the secretary and the treasurer, therefore that individual is free to do as they please with the resources that have been allocated for the community. Additionally, the Regional Chairman said there are a number of land problems in the CDCs where the Chairperson would allegedly authorise the granting of lands to affiliates or on the basis of bribery.“Sometimes there is a collaborative effort between the one man that is controlling the community and sometimes the officer responsible for carrying out the function of the Lands and Surveys Commission,” Ashely alleged.In this regard, the Regional Chairman is pleading with the relevant authorities to address the matter with urgency so that elections can soon be held and a constituted body installed, so that democracy can prevail in the CDCs.
NA Technical Institute assaultThe Guyana Police Force has launched an investigation into a violent attack that occurred on several students of the New Amsterdam Technical Institute by one of their colleagues.Commander of B Division (Berbice), Paul Langevine told Guyana Times on Wednesday that one of the victims’ parents filed a report with Police in Berbice and a probe into the matter has been launched. He further noted that upon completion of the investigation the necessary actions will be taken.NA Technical Institute assault“I know a report was made, a parent came with their child. The report was made and the necessary actions will be taken,” Langevine said.Outraged ensued on social media on Tuesday when the video showing the beating went viral.In the video, the teen is seen taking off his belt and using it to inflict blows which were mostly targeted. The video angered many who viewed it and calls for the Police to arrest the student have been made. The student is also seen slapping one of the other students in a classroom. In a statement to the media on Tuesday, the Education Ministry said the investigation was launched after the video emerged on social media.However, sources at the school told Guyana Times that the incident occurred on Monday.B Division Commander Paul LangevineWhen the mother of the aggressor was contacted by this publication, she initially refused to give any comment on the matter. She however denied making any social media post justifying her son’s actions, adding that she is making efforts to reach out to the parents of the victims.Since the emergence of the video, social activists and religious leaders have condemned the act, calling for a heavy penalty against the student to discourage others from such violent behaviour.
…mixed survey report of 2014 reveals over 75% experienced violenceData retrieved from a mixed survey throughout Guyana in 2014 by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) revealed that over 75 per cent of the children interviewed reported that they experienced some form of abuse in their lives.Acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice onetteCummings-EdwardsUNICEF Country Representative to Guyana, Sylvie FouetThis is according to UNICEF’s Country Representative to Guyana, Sylvie Fouet, who told a gathering at the recently-held University of Guyana’s Tain Talks on Sexual Violence, that this survey was conducted in various communities and households across the country.According to statistics, between 20 and 30 per cent of these children and youths have been subjected to some form of sexual violence.“For UNICEF, our message is clear, no form of violence including sexual violence, is acceptable. Sexual violence is a silent emergency … you don’t see the wounds. They might be inside of them, the emotional consequence – that is a lifetime. So this silent emergency demands our attention and action at all levels – at home, school, community, institutions and system, including at workplaces,” Fouet declared.She emphasised that no one person or agency could create a safe environment for the country’s children and youths and as such, all hands should be on deck to change social norms and cultural silence on the issue of child sexual abuse in Guyana.Meanwhile, according to the acting Chancellor of the Judiciary, Justice Yonette Cummings-Edwards, prior to the establishment of the Sexual Offences Court in Georgetown (2017) and in Berbice, there was a very low conviction rate and low reporting of sexual abuse cases.“We know only too well that when the matter is reported and investigated and proceeds to trial, there is even more trauma if the case is not handled properly or if we are insensitive to the needs of the victims. This in itself can cause secondary trauma or revictimisation. And this may cause the victim to withdraw from the court system; they may refuse to give their statement to the Police, or they may stay away or decide not to face the offender or the jury,” Justice Cummings-Edwards noted.She explained that in some cases, victims may believe that they would be subjected to harsh environments, and would be reluctant to pursue the act of seeking justice for the crime committed against them.“Prior to the Sexual Offences Act and the Sexual Offences Court, victims went through the ordeal, had to face cold confines of Police station, then the Magistrate’s Court and then the High Court to be questioned and even humiliated,” the acting Chancellor noted.However, Justice Cummings-Edwards reminded that the aim of the Sexual Offences Court was to ensure that the environment was conducive to victims and support services were offered. Quite soon, she said, another such court will be established in Suddie, Essequibo.“Sexual violence is a criminal offence and also a violation of human rights. Reports have shown that there is a high incidence of rape within the Caribbean and Guyana has signed on and ratified a number of instruments. The Constitution provides for appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measure to protect children, women and others from physical, mental and sexual violence.”

Chairman Xia is understood to be unhappy Wyness was seeking advice to safeguard the club’s financial future in case they failed to return to the Premier League.Issues began to arise internally with Xia and his finances last August and Villa needed to get promoted to solve their problems.But they lost the Championship play-off final 1-0 to Fulham last month, with the defeat shining a light on Xia’s lack of financial planning.The club staved off the immediate threat of administration by paying a large chunk of the £4million bill to HMRC.But they will be faced with another tax bill in under two weeks with wages also due to be paid.The club need to find £40million to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations meaning Jack Grealish is likely to be sold.Villa are adamant they will not be taken advantage of but are yet to receive a serious offer which gets close to an asking price of around £30million for their star midfielder.A former Everton and Aberdeen chief executive, Wyness was brought in by Xia when he completed a £76million takeover in 2016.He played a major part in bringing Steve Bruce to the club in October 2016 after Xia’s disastrous appointment of Roberto Di Matteo, who lasted just 11 games.Xia has spent most of his time in China with executive assistant Rongtian He being his eyes and ears in Birmingham.He and chief commercial officer Luke Organ have risen to prominent positions under Xia.Boss Bruce’s future is also uncertain with Leeds reportedly interested in making him their new manager.Aston Villa offered no comment when contacted about Wyness’ departure. Wyness was involved in the deal to bring John Terry to Villa Park last summer Former Aston Villa chief executive Keith Wyness is suing the club after leaving Villa Park.The 60-year-old is pursuing legal action for constructive dismissal which could cost Villa over £6million.He has officially left the club after being suspended last week following a fall out with owner Tony Xia. 1

A MAN took remote control of a Donegal woman’s computer and demanded a credit card payment of €249 to release it, the victim has said.The computer hijacker – thankfully – didn’t get away with the money or the scam.But the victim is warning other people to be vigilant. “Our landline rang at 8pm, my mother in law answered an Indian sounding man was on the other side telling her our internet had been hacked and to go to the computer immediately,” she said.“At this stage she passed me the phone so assuming this person was calling from 3, I did as he instructed and within minutes he had control of the computer and told me I had to pay €249 to regain control of my computer and asked for my credit card details – which I did not give him.“He started to get abusive and threatening so I hung up and tried to shut down my computer which I could not as he was changing all settings and I had no control at all.“I switched off computer and when I went to turn it back on he had it password protected and I could not use it at all. I was very lucky as later when I turned it on again the computer itself recognised suspicious activity had taken place and offer me the chance to reset it to a previous setting.” The victim said she wanted other people to be wary of the bogus callers.“I would like to warn other people in Donegal about this as I found it very distressing and a huge invasion of privacy.” she said.
