… action will be taken to rectify this – KingEven though a ban was placed on vendors to stop plying their trade in the vicinity of the Stabroek Market Square, persons have not been complying with this rule, especially at nights.Thisis according to Mayor of Georgetown, Patricia Chase Green, who was supported by Town Clerk Royston King on Monday at a statutory meeting held at City Hall.Town Clerk Royston KingKing asserted that strategic action will be taken against persons who have been continuously disobeying the order by the Mayor and City Council (M&CC).“We have observed that there is a creeping return of vendors, particularly in the nights, just at the Stabroek Market square, we are on to it and we are working out strategies to deal with that particular situation,” King said at the meeting.In April, the Mayor and City Council opted to have the entire Stabroek Square cleared of vendors, leading to their (vendors) relocation. Though, this decision displeased many, the M&CC upheld their pronouncement.The vendors were relocated to the vicinity now known as “The Parliament View Mall”, where tents and other water and washroom facilities were provided. This move, according to the Town Clerk, is temporary – for a period of three months – giving the Council time to set up a permanent location to facilitate the vendors.While the time allocated for occupation to the M&CC by the owner of the land, was only three months starting from April and concluding in the July, King mentioned in a previous meeting sometime last month, that there is an expectation of an extension of an additional three months to be given.However, after this announcement was made by King, Haresh Narine Sugrim, the owner of the plot of land, took to the media to make it clear that he has no intentions of granting the M&CC any extension to use the land after the initial three-month peroid expires.King has made no comment on the rebuttal made by Sugrim.
The Guyana Gold and Diamond Miners Association (GGDMA) has called for a Commission of Inquiry (CoI) to be launched into the death of a Brazilian miner who was shot and killed on Saturday by two Police Officers in Puruni, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni).The Association made calls via a strongly worded statement to the media on Wednesday which highly condemned the action, and more so the officers, who committed that act.“No one in the Government is doing anything to help miners, they are just applying pressure. We are demanding our respect… there seems to be no one in charge of the mining sector and the Government is yet to articulate its policy on continuedBrazilian miner Estevão Marquês Costa who was shot and killedmining in Guyana,” the GGDMA stated in the release.The organisation bashed the Finance Ministry for not addressing issues within the sector.“When the Minister of Finance takes to the media to bemoan and lament the dismal performance of the Guyanese economy, he must address the outstanding issues under his portfolio that are negatively impacting the industry and then look squarely in the face of his colleagues who, for the last four years, have mismanaged and neglected the industry which carried Guyana on its back,” the GGDMA added in its release.In addition, the body said it has taken note of the increasing levels of bullyism which is seemingly going unnoticed by the Government, which is clearly responsible for the downturn in the mining sector.“There is an increasing level of bullyism taking place and public officers are clearly operating outside the law without consequence… death, corruption and frustration are now the pillars on which the current Government seems to be moulding the industry”.The Association against this backdrop said that “Mining is surely on the down turn and the blame for this lies squarely at the feet of the current Government”.It complained that is has now been more than three years since the coalition Government took office and the President is still refusing to meet with the largest Private Sector employer in the country. “We will not take it anymore.”Meanwhile, an autopsy conducted on the 37-year-old miner’s body on Wednesday suggested that he died as a result of a single gunshot wound to his head. Reports are that the bullet entered the man’s head from the back and exited the front.It was reported that Estevão Marquês Costa was shot and killed by two Police Officers; one has since admitted to the killing.The two Police Officers were taken into custody after they allegedly murdered the Brazilian miner in Puruni, Region Seven and attempted to get rid of the body on Saturday last.It was reported that a Subordinate and a Constable – who are stationed at the Kurupung Police Station – abandoned their post on Friday and reportedly left on an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) to patrol the area but for some reason left their jurisdiction via a boat and went to a landing in Puruni.Upon their arrival in the area, the Police Constable reportedly exited the boat and went to a shop a short distance from the landing while his subordinating officer reportedly waited in the boat.Soon after a loud explosion was heard and the other officer who remained in the boat was told by the Constable that the miner discharged a round at him and in retaliation, he returned fire. This was however refuted but the mother of the now dead man who has accused the Police of murdering her son.She told detectives that her son was shot at close range by the Constable. The officers, she claimed, even made attempts to burn her son’s body but the miners stopped same from happening.The two ranks remain in custody as investigations continue.

A final ruling on the case will be made by a judge.A spokesman for Neymar said he was not able to comment on the police decision. Sao Paulo police are due to hold a news conference on Tuesday.Neymar has vehemently denied allegations he raped a Brazilian woman in a Paris hotel in May.The ugly affair, which has dominated headlines and conversations in the soccer-mad country for weeks, overshadowed Brazil’s preparations for the Copa America.Hosts Brazil went on to win South America’s showcase tournament earlier this month without their biggest player, who was injured in a warm-up friendly before the opening match.The scandal blew up on June 2 when Neymar published a seven-minute video on Instagram, where he had first been in contact with Najila Trindade, revealing that he had been accused of rape.In an attempt to defend himself against the allegations, Neymar’s video was accompanied by WhatsApp messages and images of his encounter with Trindade — without her consent, possibly breaking Brazilian law.– Police questioning –The drama quickly snowballed. Extracts of a televised interview with Trindade, in which she accused Neymar of “aggression together with rape,” aired just one hour before he was about to enter the pitch for the pre-Copa game between Brazil and Qatar.Neymar tore his right ankle ligament in the 20th minute, ruling him out of the tournament.In the following weeks, Neymar was questioned by police over the WhatsApp messages.He also appeared before police in Sao Paulo, where Trindade had filed her complaint at the end of May.As the case dragged on, police filed a defamation suit against Trindade — who was dropped by multiple lawyers — after she insinuated the force was corrupt.“The police are bought, aren’t they? Or am I crazy?” she told television channel SBT last month in response to questions over the police investigation of an alleged theft of a tablet device from her home that contained a short video she claims has conclusive evidence she was assaulted.Despite the seriousness of the allegations, polls have shown that most Brazilians believe Neymar is innocent.Controversy has followed the Paris Saint-Germain player, who flew back to France earlier this month.Neymar, who joined PSG in 2017, has made clear he wants to return to Barcelona.He has yet to feature during PSG’s pre-season tour in Asia and French media reported he will miss Tuesday’s game against Sydney in China.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Police in Brazil probing rape allegations against football superstar Neymar, pictured April 21, 2019, have closed the case due to a lack of evidence, the Sao Paulo attorney general’s office says © AFP/File / Anne-Christine POUJOULATSAO PAULO, Brazil, Jul 30 – Police in Brazil probing rape allegations against football superstar Neymar have closed the case due to a lack of evidence, the Sao Paulo attorney general’s office said Monday.The police decision will be sent to prosecutors on Tuesday, who will have 15 days to evaluate the case, a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office told AFP.

SACRAMENTO – A Sacramento attorney is suing Sacramento’s Main Jail, saying his client’s civil and religious rights have been denied since he has been refused a vegan diet. The inmate has been on a hunger strike since March 8, his attorney said. Sacramento sheriff’s officials say Eric Taylor McDavid, 28, is free to discard what he finds inedible, and still get a diet that meets nutritional standards. McDavid is accused of conspiring to blow up Nimbus Dam and a nearby fish hatchery in Rancho Cordova, and a U.S. Forest Service genetics lab in Placerville. Mark Reichel, McDavid’s criminal attorney who also filed the federal lawsuit Friday, said his client is suffering. Jones said McDavid has also been seen by the medical staff several times about his diet. In general, Jones said, the department makes dietary accommodations for medical reasons, but not religious. He said people who keep kosher, halal and vegetarian diets can supplement their diets with items for sale in the jail’s commissary. “They can not eat what they perceive as offensive and still get the minimum nutrition,” he said. Jerry Read of the Corrections Standards Authority, which regulates the state’s jails, said his office does not regulate religious diets. “Case law changes too often,” he said. “It comes up a lot – I don’t know how many lawsuits there are, but enough that we can’t keep up with it.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Reichel said McDavid has been a vegan for three years, and equates his avoidance of animal products to a religion. “His vegan diet is based upon his strongly, sincerely and firmly held beliefs, which are the same as a religious belief,” the lawsuit states. Sacramento sheriff’s legal affairs Lt. Scott Jones said he considers veganism to be a lifestyle choice. Nonetheless, he said, a dietitian has met with McDavid to determine that even if he discards animal products from his daily meals, his diet meets his nutritional needs.
