Ramjattan urges “restraint” when consuming alcohol

first_img…following two fatal accidents involving CopsFollowing recent reports of two Guyana Police Force members being involved in fatal motor vehicular accidents while under the influence of alcohol, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan has called for law enforcement ranks to be morePublic Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattandisciplined in their personal lives, as he called for more restraint when imbibing. In recent weeks, Constable Ryan Persaud and Deputy Superintendent Patrick Todd were both detained by their colleagues for allegedly causing the deaths of two persons in separate motor vehicular accidents. This set alight much debate over the conduct of officers who are tasked with upholding law and order.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan weighed in on the issue at the 2019 Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) staff training on Monday, highlighting the many social ills that surround intoxication, including domestic violence. With great emphasis and conviction, the Minister who called for improved personal conduct, said also that ranks should seek alternatives to driving when they have had too many drinks. He suggested that ranks hire a taxi or ensure that one rank is not intoxicated.“Take a taxi and go home or ask another Policeman to drive you home who is not drunk or had any drink but Guyanese love to take a chance,” he stressed.The ranks involved in the recent incidents were both over the age of 21, with the senior of the two being reportedly close to retirement. In 2017, Ramjattan signalled his support for increasing the legal age of purchasing alcohol from 18 to 21. However on Monday, he curtailed those previous statements.“I believe that self-restraint more than making a new law to amend the age from 18-21 will do the trick. We have to get people to understand that alcohol is bad for them. Not exclusively but moderate use of it can be allowed and that is the position of this Administration,” the Public Security Minister outlined.Sixty-four-year-old Hague, West Coast Demerara, pedal cyclist Conrad Alleyne, lost his life on the Boerasirie Bridge last week and the Superintendent was allegedly at fault. Meanwhile, 23-year old Constable Ryan Persaud of Kitty, Georgetown, was in early September released on $25,000 bail after he was charged for allegedly driving Guyana Police Force minibus PVV 4652, while his breath alcohol level was 91 micrograms. The normal breath alcohol level is 35 micrograms. East Ruimveldt resident Akemo Anthony was killed in that Mandela Avenue, Georgetown accident.Neither Persaud nor Todd has been arraigned on the charge of causing death by dangerous driving as legal advice is being sought in both matters. From January to November 2018, there have been 94 road fatalities; an increase from the 81 such cases that were recorded for 2016 at the comparable period.last_img read more

Suspects likely for court today

first_imgBetter Hope double murder– file to be sent for legal adviceAs investigations intensify into the murder of Better Hope, East Coast Demerara money changer Aaron Latchman and his 18-year-old daughter, Arianna Lathcman, the police are expected to send the file for legal advice this morning.Dead: Arianna Lathcman and Aaron LatchmanA source close to investigations told Guyana Times that the file has been completed and once legal advice is sought, five suspects will be taken to court. These include “Rasta Man” of East La Penitence; “Marco” of Parika, East Bank Essequibo (EBE); “Red Man” of Sophia; “Julian” of East Ruimveldt, Georgetown, and the man who allegedly provided the weapon to them to commit the robbery.The senior officer also refuted any report that suggested that the men were paid by a friend of the now dead businessman to execute him. He noted that the police have no such information and that it was all false reports that had surfaced.The police would have arrested four of the five suspects on Thursday last. The first to be arrested was “Rasta Man”. He was reportedly arrested at Front Road, La Penitence, Georgetown, after Police swooped down on a house there. After his arrest, he took the police to Dennis Street, Sophia and Parika, where the others were arrested.Additionally, a motorcar used by the bandits that belonged to the dead businessman was found at Front Road, La Penitence. During a search of the vehicle, an illegal firearm and several rounds of ammunition were found.As the detectives worked with several leads, a Mocha Arcadia resident was arrested after his name was called by the four men. He was the one who reportedly provided them with the weapons that they used to murder the money changer and his daughter.He was nabbed in North Ruimveldt, Georgetown, and was described by two of the three men detained for the murders as “second in charge”.The alleged shooters told detectives that on the day in question, their second “boss” was at the scene in a car. Further, the men allegedly told Police that after the shooting, they were taken to a house in Sophia, Greater Georgetown, where they split the money paid for the hit.The detectives, Guyana Times understands, went to the house in Sophia and interrogated the owner, who admitted that his friend (“second boss”) brought a group of men to his house where they were seen counting money. He was reportedly given $10,000 before the men left.It is believed that the “second boss” might be behind the killings of the America Street money changers who were all gunned down during robberies.The alleged mastermind is no stranger to the police and the courts. He was charged for gun and ammunition possession. In addition, he is on trial for several armed robberies committed in 2018.On June 4, the now dead businessman had dropped off his younger daughter at her lessons and upon his return at home, he was confronted by the two gunmen.He was held at gunpoint and escorted to the upper flat of his home with his 18-year-old daughter.Reports are that the teen was attacked and shot to her chest when the bandits entered the house through the back door and began demanding cash.They then escorted Latchman into the yard where they shot him multiple times before escaping with a bag of cash.However, a source said that the elder Latchman fought with the bandits and managed to disarm one of them before he was shot.The bandits quickly made good their escape in a white Toyota Carina 212 motor car, leaving a trail of money behind.The man and his daughter were picked up and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital, where they were pronounced dead on arrival. They were laid to rest on Wednesday last.last_img read more

first_imgFINN HARPS ended recent humdrum performances with a stunning away win at Longford Town.Even a late scary rally at Flancare Park by the home side failed to stop the Donegal men taking all three points.The small travelling support couldn’t believe what they were seeing as first Sean McCarron scored (18th minute) and Kevin McHugh added a second in the 34th to see the visitors in at half-time 2-0 ahead. When Longford’s Michael Funston scored an own goal with nine minutes left, Harps were 3-0 in front.And, it seemed, heading for an incredible whitewash of the Division One favourites.The hosts decided to give it a go and with two minutes on the clock Mark Salmon pulled back what seemed to be a mere consolation.But Michael Isichel added a second to reduce the deficit to 3-2 in injury time. Thankfully for the Ballybofey outfit Longford ran out of time….and the Harps are on their way back to Donegal with three more points.It was a great result for Peter Hutton’s team who close the gap on Town and Mervue.Longford Town: Chris Bennion; Noel Haverty, Willo McDonagh, Brian McCarthy, Willie Tyrell (Michael Isichei 80); Daniel Purdy, Gavin Doyle (Keith Gillespie 54), Mark Salmon, Keith Quinn (Etanda Nkololo 38); Gary Shaw, David O’Sullivan.Subs: Paul Hunt, Chris Deans, Des Hope, David O’Neill.Bookings: Noel Haverty 14mins, Willo McDonagh 55mins, Chris Bennion 63mins, Keith Gillespie 85mins Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; James Doherty, Thomas McGonagle (Michael Doherty 84), Keith Cowan, Ciaran Coll; Michael Funston, Damien McNulty, Tommy Bonner, Gary Merritt (Matt Harkin 75); Sean McCarron (Shaun McGowan 90), Kevin McHugh.Subs: Johnny Bonner, Mark Forker, Aaron O’Hagan, Shaun Patton.Booking: Michael Funston 59mins, Ciaran Gallagher 90+3Referee: Sean Grant (Wexford) Attendance: 343 officialHARPS STUN LEADERS LONGFORD WITH AWAY VICTORY was last modified: May 12th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:HARPS STUN LEADERS LONGFORD WITH AWAY VICTORYlast_img read more

City and England ace Kyle Walker reveals where he’d rather be playing

first_img3 “It was comfortable because of the work I’ve done at City,” Walker added. “The gaffer [Guardiola] really doesn’t like to be overloaded in midfield. So if he does see that then I do tuck in and so we go as a back three. My game has developed tremendously under him. He [Guardiola] has taught me so much.”And he wants to continue his glorious season with the Three Lions. “We are strong in all areas. We have a great bunch of lads, pace to burn and a  great  defensive record.“It’s been a fantastic season for  City. We want to continue that for England now.” 3 In a frank interview, England defender Kyle Walker has revealed he is a reluctant centre-back.A lot of focus has been on national boss Gareth Southgate’s decision to play three at the back, which has seen Walker operate in an unfamiliar position.The 28-year-old plays right-back for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City and has also featured in the same position for the majority of his 35 England appearances. “Is it my preferred position?” Walker says. “Of course not. I want to play right-back. I’ve worked my whole life to get to where I am now in a World Cup squad, and to showcase my talent on the World Cup stage, playing in my position.“I’ve been playing professionally since I was 18 at right-back, to get to your first World Cup and probably not be playing in your preferred position, where you want to showcase your talent, is not disappointing but it is a little bit of a step back.”Not that it is likely to detract him from his mission of helping his country win in Russia, which starts against Tunisia on 18 June.“I’m a professional. As long as the manager feels it’s going to benefit the team then why not?”Playing under for his club manager, though, where he won the Premier League in his first season has helped with this tactical flexibility.center_img Working under Pep Guardiola has helped Kyle Walker immensely Walker joined City for £50m in 2017 and won the Premier League 3last_img read more

first_imgDONEGAL GAA fans are harvesting the benefits of being beaten in the All-Ireland semi-final – by charging Dublin fans up to €500 for tickets to All-Ireland final on Sunday week!Various websites are offering the tickets – with one Donegal fan even offering to personally deliver his tickets to the capital in time for the big game.And no wonder, he’d make a whopping €880 profit! Dubs are going mad for tickets for the Championship showdown with Kerry.They are furious with the allocation they have been given for the game.With so many fans wanting to see the game, and so few tickets available in the capital, a campaign has been launched to put up big screens around Dublin for fans!Councillor Deirdre Heney called on council officials to “provide a big screen in one of our public spaces or city parks so as many fans as possible can enjoy the All-Ireland Football Final in the company of fellow GAA supporters”. She said the issue of tickets has proven “too difficult” for fans to obtain.Cllr Heney identified public spaces such as College Green and Dawson Street to accommodate large crowds.She said both areas have been used in the past for sport homecoming events.“Either of these spaces, or some other public central public space, would accommodate GAA supporters from across the city who are otherwise unable to get tickets,” she said.“This is hugely important to the public. Tickets are scarce and it would provide a great opportunity for people to watch the game in the city.” REVENGE!
