Rms information

THE Guyana Revenue Au-
thority (GRA) yesterday re-
minded businesses that it will
not spare any effort to en-
force the law with regards to
ensuring a smooth implemen-
tation of the much-touted
Value Added Tax (VAT).
The introduction of VAT
from January 1 this year has
been marred by initial hiccups
and glitches so far, some of
which were expected.
The GRA in a statement
yesterday also expressed con-
cern about the action by some
television hosts and owners
who it said are peddling misin-
formation about VAT.
"We view this action which
borders on violation of the law
as being palpably irresponsible
and undermines the efforts of
noble businesses, policy makers,
the GRA and ordinary citizens
who have resolved to contribute
to the modernisation of
Guyana's tax regime," the au-
thority said.
The tax implementation and
executing body said it is con-
templating action against busi-
nesses and individuals engaging


in these practices.
"We acknowledge that the
implementation of this tax has
been met with some bottlenecks
which are expected with any tax
reform of this nature...but
while the GRA is pleased that
the country has commenced the
implementation of VAT which
represents a milestone achieve-
ment in our efforts to modernmise
the country's tax regime, we are
not oblivious of these hiccups,"
the body said.
"In the same way we are
heartened by the decision of a
growing number of businesses to
adjust the Consumption Tax out
of their pre-VAT prices before
applying the VAT rate in order
to either maintain or reduce fi-
nal prices," the GRA added.
The GRA also expressed

concerns relating to the dis-
play of certificates, invoicing
requirements, mounting of
adequate signs to indicate
whether their prices are VAT
inclusive or exclusive and in-
ordinate increase of prices.
On this note, it said it
would like to remind businesses
that the VAT law stipulates
penalties for violating require-
ments relating to these and that
it will not spare any effort to
enforce the law.
And in its continuing efforts
to fairly and efficiently admin-
ister the tax, the GRA said it
will be supplementing its con-
ventional audit procedures with
additional investigative methods
to ensure that businesses remit
all the VAT due and unearth any
violations of the VAT law.

The GRA said it is also
contemplating a novel measure
of offering incentives to citizens
who will provide evidence that
will provide an audit trail lead-
ing to unearthing of violations of
the VAT law.
"This, we believe, will not
only benefit the VAT system
but also administration of all the
other taxes (and) this will ulti-
mately benefit all Guyanese as
taxes will be reported much
more truthfully," it offered.
"We continue to implore
businesses to play their role in
contributing to a seamless tran-
sition to the VAT regime; you
are reminded that a key factor
which will aid in this transition
is a steady rate of consumption
of commodities in the country."
"If consumers shop less as
a result of higher prices, busi-
nesses stand to suffer revenue
losses," the GRA argued.
Over the coming weeks, the
GRA said it will continue its in-
teraction with businesses to
implement the VAT in a way
that will result in full compli-

the GRA has been stepping up

businesses failing to meet VAT
requirements is a result of the

toring of VAT processing at sev-

Their report last week, it
said, suggests that businesses
have improved their systems
and are in greater compliance
with the VAT law.
The government Thursday an-
nounced it is taking urgent steps to
rectify the initial hiccups and
glitches associated with the imple-
mentation of VAT.
Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Roger
Luncheon, said the glitches are
mainly due to interpretational
issues about the tax and price
gouging by some very unscru-
pulous businessmen.
Luncheon told reporters the
government is paying "very
close attention" to the general
implementation of VAT and
more specifically to the "acute
developments" hindering a
smooth implementation of the
much talk-about tax.
The new taxation system

A YOUNG Guyana Defence
Force soldier was yesterday
tragically killed after losing

ventured to ride, but with

they could pick some guavas
from a tree in the yard.
As the other soldiers began
to help themselves to the gua-
vas, Carlton borrowed the keys
to the 125 scooter on which
they came.
A distraught aunt, Jennifer
Lowton, said Carlton did not
know how to ride the bike, but
"everything happened so
quickly, before you knew it he
had sped off."

Anti-Ethiopian protests

rock Somali capital

SUNDAY CHRONICLE January 7, 2007

By Sahal Abdulle and Guled
MOGADISHU (Reuters) -
Ethiopian troops and Somali
protesters exchanged fire in
Mogadishu yesterday killing
three people, witnesses said,
as hundreds of Somalis
demonstrated against the
foreign forces and a
government disarmament
And in a move likely to
anger many Somalis, President
Abdullahi Yusuf asked Ethiopia
to train Somali armed forces,
Ethiopian state television said.
Yemen's foreign minister
was quoted as saying some
Somali Islamist leaders, ousted
by Ethiopian-backed
government forces in a two-
week war, were now in Yemen.

In Mogadishu, protesters
hurled stones and burned tyres,
wreathing streets in smoke and
reviving memories of the chaos
that had largely stopped during
six months of strict Islamist rule
by the Somalia Islamic Courts
"The Ethiopians opened fire
and shot dead a young boy and
a lady. they also killed another
person," a witness said. Other
witnesses agreed.
"The (government) and
Ethiopian troops invaded our
country and they have shot
my son for no good reason,"
said Omar Halane, the boy's
A Somali government
source said only one person
had died and gave a different
version of events. He said
police had opened fire in




Tarbuunka square, where the
Islamists held anti-Ethiopian
demonstrations when they
controlled the capital.
In the latest show of
discontent with the forces
that ousted the Islamists in
two weeks of open warfare,
hundreds of Somalis
marched through the
capital chanting "Down
with Ethiopia".
"We are against the
Ethiopian troops' occupation.
We don't want them, they
should leave," 20-year-old
protester Ahmed Mohamed
said. "They are harassing us in
our own country."

Ethiopian soldiers fired
in the air to disperse crowds
and government troops
armed with AK-47s patrolled
the streets.
Somalia's government
wants to install itself in
Mogadishu, one of the world's
most dangerous cities. Within
hours of the Islamists fleeing,
militiamen loyal to warlords
reappeared at checkpoints in the
city where they used to terrorise
Residents fear
Mogadishu could slide back
into the anarchy that has
gripped the city since the
1991 ouster of a dictator.

EU urges U.S. to

seize chance for

global trade deal

trade chief Peter Mandelson,
preparing for talks in Wash-
ington on how to save world
trade negotiations, urged Eu-
rope and the United States
yesterday to show political
leadership to get a deal by
European Commission
President Jose Manuel Barroso,
leading a delegation to the U.S.
capital, is to press the trade is-
sue with President George W.
Bush tomorrow.
He will also urge Bush to do
more on climate change, work
more closely on securing energy
supplies and the two will dis-
cuss Middle East peace efforts.
Mandelson is to meet
U.S. Trade Representative
Susan Schwab. with whom
he has swapped blame for
July's suspension of the
World Trade Organisation's
Doha round of talks to boost
global trade. He said it was an
opportunity to revive the pro-

Mandelson said "quiet,
constructive bilateral contacts"
recently showed a possible out-
line of a final deal which must
be reached in the coming months
after which the round, already
into its sixth year of talks, risks
long delays.
"We have now entered a
narrow window of opportunity
lasting until Easter during which
success for the world trade talks
is possible." Mandelson said in
a statement. "We now need the
added momentum of political
leadership from the highest
level. Europe and the U.S. have
a shared responsibility to make
this happen."
U.S. officials say a break-
through is unlikely tomorrow.

could allow for some progress

Big avalanche

buries Colorado

DENVER (Reuters) A large avalanche tumbled onto a ma-
jor highway leading to the Colorado ski resort of Winter
Park yesterday, burying some cars and injuring at least
one person, state authorities said.
The snowslide was 200 feet wide and 15 feet deep and bur-
ied at least two cars along U.S. Highway 40. about 60 miles
west of Denver.
"Our preliminary reports indicate that the slide covered all
three lanes of the roadway and two cars were covered and
pushed off the road." Bob Wilson, spokesman for the Colo-
rado Department of Transportation. said.
"Our crews are saying it is the largest slide they have ever
seen," Wilson added.
Colorado has been hit with three major snowstorms
in the last few weeks and Winter Park, one of the largest
ski areas in the state, reported 10 inches of fresh snow in
the past 48 hours.

Mexico drug crackdown

leaves cops without guns

By Noel Randewich

TIJUANA, Mexico, (Reuters)
- Local police patrolled with-
out their guns in Mexico's
tough border city of Tijuana
yesterday after soldiers dis-
armed them to check if the
weapons had been used in
drug gang crimes.
In the latest stage of a na-
tional crackdown on drug-re-
lated violence, more than 4,000
soldiers, sailors, federal and
state police last week poured
into Tijuana, where some mem-
bers of the poorly paid munici-
pal police force are suspected
of helping drug hitmen in a war
between rival gangs.
The army confiscated the
local police's handguns and
rifles to run ballistics tests.
Many of the 2,300 municipal
cops briefly stayed away from
work, but most were back on
the streets by yesterday, minus
their weapons.
"We feel unprotected," said
32-year-old city police officer
Juan Betancourt.

"This is our main tool," he
said, brushing a hand over his
empty holster as he walked
along the tawdry Avenida de la
Revolucion, lined with dingy
bars and strip clubs.
A favourite weekend party
town for U.S. college kids, the
city just south of San Diego has
been caught up in a conflict be-
tween rival drugs gangs that
killed some 2,000 people last
year. The city records a murder
almost every day and two
kidnapping a week on average.
A Tijuana police officer sus-
pected of involvement in killings
on behalf of drug bosses was de-
tained Friday in the nearby bor-
der city of Mexicali, a source in
the state government told
Police in Mexico, normally
underpaid, poorly trained and ill
equipped, are widely perceived
as inept and corrupt, and critics
allege many Tijuana cops have
sold out to drug gangs.
The gangs that smuggle nar-

cotics to the United States are
well armed, often with assault
rifles, and shootouts are fre-
quent in the city.
New President Felipe
Calderon, who has made fight-
ing drug gangs a priority since
coming to power on Dec. 1, last
month sent a force of 7,000 sol-
diers and federal cops to the
western state of Michoacan,
which saw about 500 gangland-
style killings last year.
Murders have continued
there despite the military pres-
ence. Calderon's predecessor,
Vicente Fox, declared his own
war on drug kingpins but failed
to gain the upper hand during
his six-year term.
The Tijuana police force
was under orders to call in sup-
port from armed federal and
state police in case of an armed
incident they could not handle
without their guns.
But in at least one case, no
backup arrived in time and Juan
Carlos Garcia, a Tijuana police-
man for 16 years, helped disarm
a man armed with a suspected

illegal shotgun.
"We sneaked up, sur-
rounded him and attacked him,"
Garcia said after escorting the
attacker to jail. "In the more
dangerous areas, people are
taking advantage of the lack of
Garcia said he thought there
had been a spike in crime in
some parts of town because po-
lice were unarmed but other
street cops said it was difficult
to judge.
Many cops at Tijuana's
main police headquarters handed
over weapons by the armful, in-
cluding pistols, assault rifles
and even a handgun with a
One policeman alone gave
in four pistols and three auto-
matic rifles on Friday.
Tijuana's police depart-
ment, which says charges of
corruption are exaggerated,
has estimated the military
will take more than a week
to test and return their weap-
ons. (Additional reporting by

CARACAS, (Reuters) Ven-
ezuela yesterday slammed
the Organisation of Ameri-
can States for criticising
President Hugo Chavez's
decision not to renew an op-
position-linked television
station's licence.
The OAS on Friday said
refusing to renew the licence of
RCTV, a station that provided
favourable co erage of a bungled

2002 coup against Chavez,
would constitute intimidation of
the Venezuelan press.
"We can assure that the
government's actions do not
constitute a censure of free-
dom of expression, but rather
are meant to provide a true
guarantee of it." ihe nation's
foreign ministry said in a
nev s release.
The statement accused OAS

Secretary Jose Miguel Insulza
of "'unjustified interference" in
Venezuelan issues and of echo-
ing "unfounded accusations" by
Venezuela's media.
Chasez said in December
the government would not re-
new RCTV's broadcast licence
when it expires in March.
A firebrand leftist allied
with Cuba, Chavez has fre-
quently clashed with

Venezuela's critical and often
hostile private media and re-
peatedly threatened to close

Rowley probe widens
(TRINIDAD GUARDIAN) Investigations into allegations
of impropriety by Housing Minister Dr Keith Rowley have
widened to include the Emile Elias-owned construction
company, NHIC.
This was confirmed by Director of Public Prosecutions
Geoffrey Henderson. And Elias has continued to protest his
innocence, saying there was nothing to investigate.
Speaking with the Guardian, Henderson said by sending the
file to the police to look into the allegations against Rowely it
was clear that the issue of the alleged illegal removal of materi-
als from the Scarborough Hospital project to the Land Date de-
velopment had to be investigated.
"There is a police investigation into a report that material
from the hospital site was removed to the private development
project belonging to the wife of Housing Minister Dr Keith
Rowley," he said.
"Such an investigation must necessarily focus on whether
in fact material was moved? If it was illegally moved? Who re-
moved such material? And whether there was proper authority
to move such material?"
In an immediate response, Elias said the DPP "ought to read
the Commission of Inquiry report and the court proceedings
which NHIC brought against the Commission."
In the matter against the commission, Elias is contending
that the entire proceedings were tainted with bias.
Elias' firm was the main contractor on the Scarborough hos-
pital project and it served as the sub-contractor on the Mason
Hall housing development undertaken by Sharon Rowley, wife
of the Housing Minister.
It is alleged that the hospital material was illegally removed
to the housing development.
Elias said to date, he has not been questioned by the police
and he is unaware of his company being investigated.
"I am not aware there is any investigation because there is
nothing to investigate," Elias insisted.
He questioned why the DPP had not yet instructed the po-
lice to begin investigations into Elias' allegations that a witness
at the Commission of Enquiry had perjured himself.

IT WOULD be a pity should the summonses served on two
business enterprises last week for violation of the Value-
.Added Tax (VAT) now fully in force, be wrongly interpreted
as a "heavy hand" from, the Guyana Revenue Authority
In our considered view it is not and, indeed, cannot be.
The GRA would be quite aware that success in achieving
what the government hopes for in the introduction and
enforcement of VAT requires understanding and cooperation on
all sides.
The business community in general that involves all regis-
tered and yet to be registered -businesses with turnover of
G$10 million and more, would be conscious of how unproduc-
tive, embarrassing and hurtful it could well be should they
offer resistance rather than compliance with the law.
Their interests, as well as those of the consumers, are pro-

Since therefore, one hand can't clap, the guiding principle
must be mutual cooperation, not hostility.
The VAT team spreading across the country to ensure com-
pliance with the law needs to demonstrate patience and not ar-
rogance in what remains a challenging education process in the
enforcement of VAT.
Getting caught up in legal entanglements would only add
to the heavy workload of our courts.
Those who persist in their negative attitudes toward this
new tax, should be reminded that VAT is being increasingly in-

CARICOM doubts,

hopes & realities

-~h S i~~eaga/Carrl ingo sess0 E*1* *]men

AS HEADS of Government of
the Caribbean Community
prepare for their first Inter-
Sessional Meeting this year,
scheduled for next month in
Kingstown, St Vincent, two
significant assessments came
last week with sharply con-
trasting views on the future
of our 33-year-old regional
economic integration move-
Citizens of the 15-member
community from the poor-
est (Haiti) to the richest
(Trinidad and Tobago) were
celebrating the dawn of 2007,
anxious to forget the horrors of
2006, as those assessments
were being made by
CARICOM Secretary Gen-
eral Edwin Carrington and
former Jamaica Prime Min-
ister Edward Seaga.
In an analysis in the Jamaica
Gleaner, Seaga, currently a Dis-
tinguished Fellow of the Univer-
sity of the West Indies, had a
bleak assessment of
CARICOM, which he sees as
being "on a slide, not a climb, in
the future..."
On the other hand, for
Carrington, the longest serving
regional public servant of
now completing his third
term, 2007 "holds great prom-
ise"; and he is "confident that
the Caribbean Community has
erected a solid foundation to-
wards achieving its goals..."
There are truths in both as-
sessments; and neither the nega-
tives in Seaga's analysis nor the
positives, offered with impor-
tant caveats, by Carrington,
came with the intention to dis-
courage or delude.
As a regional journalist
whose professional career re-
volves very much in doing the
.;CARICOM beat", I have-often

pointed to the frustrating nega-
tives as well as encouraging
positive features in the efforts
to make a success of the very
bold experiment in economic in-
tegration and functional coop-
eration in a relatively small sub-
region of the global community.
The rhetoric of "unity" and
"oneness"-easily flows from the
region's political directorate.
The evident lack of political
will to give substance to such
laudable intentions is quite an-
Hence, Seaga whose own
politickings, in and out of gov-


ernment, had contributed to
some of the hurdles in hasten-
ing the process towards major
objectives of CARICOM is,
nevertheless, correct
in observing, as he did, that 33
years after its creation, there re-
mains "intractable problems"
in CARICOM which "is still
languishing as a functioning

blame for this situation does not

specifically those more influen-
tial and big business executives

who exercise behind-the-scenes
pressures on governments to
secure decisions that suit their
own narrow agendas in regional
trade, economic investment and
fiscal matters. cannot escape
blame for the hurdles they keep
throwing up.
For all their own public

rhetoric and apparent enthusi-
asm, they are numbered, in my
book, among the recalcitrants
that include unimaginative and
weak political leaders whose
own opportunism holds back
progress on fundamental issues
pertaining to, for instance:
** Completion of the
framework for a single eco-
nomic space; acceptance of
the Caribbean Court of Jus-
tice as the region's final ap-
pellate court; and establish-
ment of a long-advocated em-
powered mechanism to en-
able for effective and efficient
governance of CARICOM's
Nor has the region's labour
movement been bold and con-
sistent enough in pressing for
the major objectives of
the Heads of Government to
make a reality of the major goals
they themselves have set for
"one market, one economy, one
Debates continue to be
stifled on critical views as ex-
pressed by distinguished re-
gional economists, such as
Havelock Brewsler and Clive
Thomas that it is simply decep-

tive on the part of our
CARICOM leaders to keep
talking of creating a single
economy without ANY known
attempt on their part to have
political integration in what-
ever form being placed on
their work agenda.

Nor to even come to terms
with the need as the passage
of time has underscored for
creation of that elusive high-
level CARICOM Commission,
armed with executive authority,
to conduct the community's af-
fairs in cooperation with the
Heads of Government.
Seaga, who was there when
problems had to be resolved -
long before he could now speak
from the vantage point of a de-
serving Distinguished Fellow of
the UWI has lamented the
"lack of fire in the bellies" of
community leaders
to meaningfully advance the
goals of CARICOM.
In noting the retirement of
former Prime Minister P.J.
Patterson, the recent electoral
defeat of St Lucia's Kenny An-
thony, and continuing specula-
tions about the longevity in
governance politics of Barbados'
Prime Minister Owen Arthur,
Seaga credited Vincentian Prime
Minister Ralph Gonsalves as
the remaining "fanatical believer
and fiery advocate of regional-
ism to work with the present
group of leaders who are sup-

porters but have far less fire in
their bellies to carry on a cam-
paign with passion..."
This provocative observa-
tion would not be flattering to
some CARICOM leaders but
what Seaga seems to be
emphasising is the need for
greater commitment to has-
ten the pace towards more
meaningful economic inte-
gration and functional coop-
To demonstrate his under-
standing of some of the prob-
lems involved in managing
CARICOM's business, Seaga
has encouragingly, and quite

surprisingly, in support of an
idea first located in the far-reach-
ing recommendations in the
1992 report of The West Indian
Commission a CARICOM

what is currently lacking.
namely, focused executive au-
thority in prescribed matters.
The leadership and commit-
ment that Jamaica's Patterson
gave to CARICOM in his long
years in government are well
known to Seaga as it should be

iously waiting ini the wings to

role of the CCJ and modalities

pleted not later than 2008..
In contrast to Seaga's ex-
pressed apprehension about
CARICOM's future, Secretary
General Carrington came for-
ward, in his New Year message
with his own understandable op-
timism and correctly reminded us
that, ultimately:
"The success of the integra-
tion movement will be accu-
rately measured by the extent to

In encouraging hope for

volved in proposed changing

HE heads of govern

nity (CARICOM) countries
will meet shortly to decide
how they could take their na-

Amongst the matters they
will consider is the governance
of CARICOM and a specific
proposal that they should es-

would oversee certain agreed
matters such as the external

last year.
The proposal for such a

Recently, a former Prime
Minister of Jamaica, Edward
Seaga, predicted that
CARICOM is "likely to face a
slide, not a climb, in the future"
because of the absence from re-
gional decision-making at a gov-
ernmental level of certain lead-

ers. Specifically, he named two
former Prime Ministers, P.J.
Patterson of Jamaica and Kenny
Anthony of St Lucia.
He claimed that apart from
Owen Arthur of Barbados
(who, he said, has indicated that
he will be retiring soon) and
Ralph Gonsalves of St Vincent,
"the present group of leaders
are supporters but have far less
fire in their bellies to carry on a
campaign (for greater regional
economic integration) with pas-
Mr. Seaga also posited the
view that the establishment of
a CARICOM Commission
would not work, and that any-
one who believes that it would
"does not understand the
psyche of Caribbean leaders
nor, indeed, the people".
Implicit in Mr. Seaga's pre-
sentation is that neither the ma-
jority of the present crop of
CARICOM leaders, nor the ma-
jority of the people, want a
more economically integrated
region, and, certainly, they do
not want a CARICOM Coin-
mission making decisions for
their countries.
Of course, on the matter of
the Commission, Mr. Seaga's
presentation overlooks the spe-
cific recommendation of every
proposal that any Commission

must take instructions from, and
be answerable to, CARICOM
Heads of Government.
Further, the Commission
will have delegated authority
and accountability only for
such matters as national govern-
ments assign to it, particularly
because those matters are bet-
ter handled with the collective
strength of regional governments
than by a weaker national gov-
ernment on its own.
As to the issue of whether
leaders have "less fire in their
bellies" for the regional integra-
tion project generally and a
CARICOM Commission in
particular, time will tell and the
forthcoming meeting of Heads
of Government will be a good
indicator. If the establishment
of the Commission is again de-
layed despite three reports that
strongly recommend it, then
CARICOM leaders would have
proved Mr. Seaga to be right.
And, there would be wider
implications for the region.
Many businesses in the
member states of CARICOM
are eager to widen their markets
beyond their national bound-
aries and into the wider Carib-
bean community. They are anx-
ious that governments should
provide the environment by
which they can do so: they want

the barriers to trade lifted in
both goods and services.
Financial institutions in-
surance companies and banks -
based in Trinidad, Barbados and
Jamaica are already engaging in
pan-Caribbean transactions pro-
viding capital to governments
and businesses Jamaica. Bar-
bados, Belize and several of the
Leeward and Windward islands
have been beneficiaries of such
financing. The financial institu-
tions could do more if the cross-
border controls and restrictions
are lifted.
Governments might well wake
up one morning to find that, to a
certain extent, both market and pro-
duction integration have taken place
around them.
But. in this scenario there
will be more losers in the busi-
ness community than there
might be if the process of liber-
alization is orderly and regu-
Already, there should have
been deeper and more meaning-
ful involvement of the region's
private sector and its trade
unions in both the development
of the Caribbean Single Market
and in the trade and investment
negotiations with the European
Union (ElU) and at the World
Trade Organization (WTO).
However theoretically


sound may be the studies of the
region's technical experts, there
is a practicality to doing busi-
ness whose requirements are
best addressed by business
people themselves.
Both at the national and re-
gional levels, the private sector
ought to be integral parties to
Some businesses in the Lee-

ward and Windward Islands, the
members of the Organisation of
Eastern Caribbean States
(OECS), are worried about be-'
ing displaced in their own do-
mestic markets by firms from
the larger CARICOM countries.
In this connection, there is
a crying need for the private
sector throughout the region to
map out their own strategy for

sharing the Single Market
through mergers, alliances or co-
operation. There is urgency for
a bargain between them which
allows for equity in how the
market is shared. Whatever for-
mula results from a bargain will
hurt some businesses, but no
bargain will harm far more.
Further, the private sector
should have a team that plays
an advisory and consultative
role to the region's trade and aid
The initiative for such ac-
tivity should be taken by the
regional private sector itself. If
it fails to do so, it cannot com-
plain if it is dissatisfied with the
results of the trade and invest-
ment negotiations in which
CARICOM governments are
now involved.
In this regard, the Caribbean
Hotels Association (CHA) have
shown the way by being forceful
in pushing tourism on to the agenda
of discussion between the EU and
the Caribbean. Others in the ser-
vices industry should follow.
It is to be hoped that there
is still "fire in the bellies" for
deeper regional integration

ahead, but in government

800 drug arrests as an anti-nar- '
cotics officer, but he has now re- f,
pented: "When I was raiding
homes and destroying families,
my conscience was telling me it
was wrong, but my need for power, fame and peer acceptance
overshadowed my good conscience."
Of course, Cooper's DVD, which teaches people how to avoid
arrest for marijuana possession, will also bring him fame, plus a
lot of money, but at least it won't hurt people.
However, Cooper lacks the courage of his own convictions.
He argues that thi ',"ar on drugs is futile and counter-productive
so far as marijuana is concerned, but nervously insists that he is
offering no tips that would help dealers of cocaine or metham-
phetamines to escape "justice".
It's as if reformers fighting against America's alcohol prohibi-


tion laws in the 1920s had advocated re-legalising beer but wanted
to continue locking up drinkers of wine or spirits. But there are
bolder policemen around, who are willing to say flatly and pub-
licly that all drug prohibition is wrong.
One is Jack Cole, 26 years with the New Jersey police, whose
organisation, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (Leap), is sup-
ported by growing numbers of serving policemen who have lost
faith in the "War on Drugs" and want to make peace.
"Leap wants to end drug prohibition just as we ended alcohol
prohibition in 1933," says Cole. who argues that neither kind of
prohibition has ever had any success in curbing consumption of
the banned substances, but that each has fuelled the growth of a
vast criminal empire.
It is policemen who take the lead in these issues because they
are the ones who must deal with the calamitous consequences of
the "War on Drugs." No doubt the use of "recreational" drugs does
a lot of harm, as does the use of alcohol or tobacco, but that harmn
is dwarfed by the amount of crime and human devastation caused
by forty years of "war" on drug-users.
Howard Roberts, the deputy chief constable of the
Nottinghamshire police, was the latest senior policeman to make
the case for ending the war, pointing out last November that heroin
addicts in Britain each commit, on average, 432 robberies, aisaul!15
and burglaries a year to raise the money for their illegal habit.
Each addict steals about $90,000 of property a year. whereas
the cost of po;''.'dine them with heroin on prescription from the
National Health Service in closely,' supervised treatment programmes
wvvoud he only $24.000 a year.
So the NHS should provide heroin to iddictls on prescIiption.
said Roberts, like it used to in the 1950s and 1960s, before Britain
was pressured into adopting the "war on drugs" model by the U.S.
(Since ti'en, the number of heroin addicts in Britain has risen sev-
cral hundredfold.)
Days later, it emerged that the NHS is actually experimenting
with a return to that policy at three places in Britain and Swil-
ze"r '' .'" uallv been prescribing heroin to addicts on a nation-

wide basis for some years now, with very encouraging results:
crime rate down, addict death rate sharply down.
If every country adopted such a policy, legalising all drugs
and making the so-called "hard" ones available to addicts free,
but only on prescription, the result would not just be improved
health for drug-users and a lower rate of petty crime, but the col-
lapse of the criminal empires that have been built on the interna-
tional trade in illegal drugs, which is now estimated to be worth
$500 billion a year.
That is exactly what happened to the criminal empires that
were founded on bootlegging when alcohol prohibition was ended
in the United States in 1933.
But what about the innocent children who will be exposed to
these drugs if they become freely available throughout the soci-
ety? The answer is: nothing that doesn't happen to them now.
There is no city and few rural areas in the developed world where
you cannot buy any illegal drug known to man within half an
hour, for an amount of money that can be raised by any enter-
prising fourteen-year-old.
Indeed, the supply of really nasty drugs would probably di-
minish if prohibition ended, because they are mainly a response
to the level of risk the dealers must face. (Economist Milton Fried-
man called it the Iron Law of Prohibition: the harder the police
crack down on a su;..'.C, Lhe more concentrated that substance
becomes so cocaine gives way to crack c2, n. as beer gave
way to moonshine under alcohol prohibition.)
This is probably yet another false dawn, flor even the polili-
cians w ho know what needs to be done are too afraid of the gut-
ter media to act on their con\ actions.
But sometime in the next fifty years, after only few more
tens of millions of needless deaths, drug prohibition will end.

Body language of the night

"Sleep is far more than a mere
physical necessity. It is an unknown
cosmos with its own dimension of
space, time and sensation."

NON-VERBAL communication is interesting and a useful in-
dication of human behaviour.
Because it is unconscious it hardly ever lies. In sleep posi-
tions we are thus expressing our unconscious thoughts and feel-
ings. In studying these positions we arrive at a picture of the sleep
world and better understanding of ourselves as human beings.
These are movements that are deeply soothing, helping us to
achieve physical and emotional tranquillity.

THE NIGHT BODY During both day and night we so-
journ into the world and experience it in a total manner. Both
men and woman are in concert with the sleep state.
During a period of standing, our bodies are in a gravity-bound
existence with the weight of the body absorbed by the springy cur-
vature of the vertebral column and by the cartilaginous cushions of
the events. Such expressions are not evident in sleep because the
gravity pull is equal on each part of the body.
Sleep-sitting and sleep-walking are often associated with the
desire to return to a state or position where the individual previ-
ously felt more secure but is denied such circumstances. Laying
down in therapy is thus highly recommended.
The position in sleep is indicative of the essential manner the
person lives, their personality characteristics, relations of self and
"The King sleeps on his back, the wise man on his side and
the rich man on his stomach".
These various positions may be modified by the placing of
the arms or feet. The individual moves about twenty to thirty five
times per night. A person agitated or anxious will move over a hun-
dred times per night.

- sleep positions

While a person may change dozens of positions in the course
of a night, they all mirror the lifestyle of the individual. A changing
home environment will reflect such conditions.
City folks on holiday in the country are more relaxed and will
assume such positions to reflect the behavioral perspective.

SLEEP POSITIONS Foetal position is where the knees
are pulled up, the chin on the
chest, arms folded like a bud.
Such a person has not allowed
themselves to grow to develop.
In life they generally seek
protection and are into depen-
dent patterns of relationships.

Semi-foetal is the most com-
mon position with the majority
of right-handed persons sleeping
on the right side and left-handed
on the left side. The knees are
drawn half-way. Turning during
the night is easier. Such persons
tend to be more balanced and se-
cure. They accommodate to life situations without undue strain.

The prone position is lying on your stomach with a hand above
the shoulder and feet stretched out. Such a person tends to be in
touch with and regulate their immediate environment. This is evi-
dent in the sleep to dominate the bed, space. They do not like sur-
prises and the unexpected. They are prompt with time and are neat
and exact. They are fussy with details.

The Royal Position is one who sleeps on his back, arms
stretched downwards. This is the favourite child, self confi-
dent, secure and accepting the world for what it has to offer.
They are open to everything, happy to give as well as to re-

ceive. They open themselves in sleep as well as to the real
walk of life and work.

There are other less common positions.
The chain gang is where the feet are crossed at the ankles lying
on the side, with arms crossed near the face. Such a person has
poor relationship with others, especially women, and complains of
boredom on the job.

The sandwich position is lying on the side and where the feet
are resting on top of each other. This is a modification of the semi-
foetal position. Such a person is more conforming in life. They are
very keen to what others expect of them.

The flamingo position is another variation to the semi-foetal
position. This is where one foot is stretched out and the other bent
at the knee. This flexed knee may be tucked under the other foot.
Such a person is passive-aggressive with both sets of traits being
strong. Thighs open suggest sexual openness.

Sleep positions express the true panorama of meaning.
While not every position can be described, there are general
principles to helping understand the night language of the
No two persons are alike. In sleep our sense of ourselves

The church's responsibility

to governments

By Rev. Kwame Gilbert

IN FIRST Timothy chapter 2
verses one and two, Paul the
apostle sets out the standard
of the Church as it relates to
"I exhort, therefore, that,
first of all, supplication,
prayers, intercession and giving
of thanks, be made for all men;
for Kings and for all that are in
authority; that we may lead a
quiet and peaceable life in all
godliness and honesty".
Paul uses four different
words for prayer, each with a
slightly different meaning.
The first "supplication" is
the type of prayer that springs
from a feeling of want and may
include asking God to help a
ruler avert a specific evil. The
second term, "prayers" is a
more general word for petitions
to God and may refer to request
for positive good that God

The third "intercession" re-
fers to prayers uttered in close
intimacy with God and often in-
cludes request to God on behalf
of others, such as the ruler him-
self. The last. "giving of
thanks" is the gratitude we ex-
press to God for having given
us the protection of civil rulers.
Paul asks for such prayers
on behalf of all men, but espe-
cially for leaders in government:
"for Kings. and for all that are
in authority."
In our context, this re-
fers to the President and all
ministers of the government,
political leaders, heads of the
Judiciary, heads of the Legis-
lature, municipal authorities,
heads of the Disciplined
Forces, and all such national
and local rulers.
Why should Christians
pray for government officials?
Because according to Ro-
mans 13:1-4, they are ministers
of God and God works through

which the three Prime Minis-
ters and LIAT management of-
ficials will discuss the LIAT/
Caribbean Star proposed merger
as one of two strategic options
now being pursued.
The other option involves
Trinidad and Tobago's new Car-
ibbean Airlines which officially
replaced BWIA on New Year's
Day. This arrangement, it was
learnt, could ultimately prove
more significant with possible
involvement for both LIAT and
Caribbean Star.
Prime Minister
Gonsalves, who currently
has the lead role for re-
gional air transportation,
confirmed yesterday to the
Sunday Chronicle
that "there are now two
strategic options for servic-
ing the region's air trans-
portation needs and both
involve merger propos-

them to restrain sin and evil in
the world. As Christians we
should not pray only for those
leaders that we like and support.
We must pray for all rulers.
Proverbs 21:1 tells us that
"the heart of the King is in the
hand of the Lord, as the rivers
of waters: he turneth it
whithersoever he will".
I believe that when the
church prays, for their gov-
ernments, God speaks to the
heart of the rulers and gives
success to their efforts, and
leads them to correct deci-
sions, which ultimately ben-
efit the nation.
Many churches at this time
of the year dedicate their ser-
vices specifically to prayers.
Now is a good time to lift up
our national leaders before God.
This is a very important
year for our country: let us re-
member to pray for our govern-
Christians are not only

While declining to discuss
the details, the Vincentian Prime
Minister said that in addition to
the LIAT/Caribbean Star merger
negotiations, the other initiative
being pursued with Caribbean
Airlines could be 'T"far reaching"
for the future of LIAT in any
Prime Ministers Gonsalves
and Spencer had a meeting just
over a week ago in Port-of-Spain
with Prime Minister Patrick
Manning whose government
owns Caribbean Airlines.
They discussed a range of
options for collaboration be-
tween LIAT and the successor
airline to BWIA.
Code-sharing. route
rights and even a possible
take-over of LIAT were re-
portedly discussed but none
of the three shareholder gov-
ernments is said to be ready

called to pray for their govern-
ment; according to Romans
13:1, 2, they are also expected
to respect and obey. "Let every
soul be subject unto the higher
powers. For there is no power
but of God: the powers that be
are ordained of God. Whoso-
ever therefore resisteth the
power resisteth the ordinance of
God: and they that resist shall

Some may ask the question
"does this mean, even if I do not
agree with everything the gov-
ernment is doing?" Absolutely.
It is generally believed
that Paul wrote the book of
Romans around A.D. 56, and
he directed his writing to the
Christian community at
Rome. At this time the em-
peror of Rome was Nero.
Nero was reputed as the
most hostile to Christianity. He
was known lor murdering his
o\\ n mother. Nero burned

down Rome and blamed the
Christians, which started the
Christian persecution.
Nero would set Christians
ablaze in his garden at night and
danced while they burned alive.
Talk of an evil ruler!
Yet Paul calls Nero a "min-
ister" (diakonos, servant) of
God and declares that Nero has
been ordained of God. If Chris-
tians were obligated to respect
Nero as the minister of God and
to obey him, think how much
greater duty we owe to our gov-
ernment today.
Peter also gave similar di-
rectives to the Christians. He
also wrote the book of Peter
around A.D. 64, again while
Nero was on the throne. Hear
what Peter says: "Submit your-
selves to every ordinance of
man for the lord's sake: whether

it be King, as supreme; or unto
governors, as unto them that are
sent by him for the punishment
of evildoers, and for the praise
of them that do well. For so is
the will of God, that with well
doing ye may put to silence the
ignorance of foolish men: as free
and not using your liberty as a
cloak of maliciousness, but as
the servants of God Honour all
men. Love the brotherhood.
Fear God, Honour the King." (1
Peter 2:13-17)
On the other hand, it
must be noted that because
the value systems of the
church are very often in con-
flict with that of the world,
sometimes our duty to God
would require us to disobey
government. However, dis-
obeying does not mean disre-
specting. (To be continued).

According to him, the value
of the exports for last year was
$1.2 billion or US$6M.
Persaud, at a news confer-
ence Friday, said that in accor-
dance with the National Devel-
opment Strategy (NDS) and the
National Competitiveness Strat-
egy (NCS) regarding the need
for diversification of agriculture.
his ministry has intensified ef-
forts which focus on the produc-

tion and marketing of non-tra-
ditional commodities.
With respect to the export
of beef and chicken, he said
prospects are high as already
Guyana is exporting beef to two
CARICOM states while inter-
est is being shown by others.
On this score, he noted that
Guyana is among countries that

Doctor robbed in city
A CITY medical doctor was robbed around midday yester-
day of an undisclosed amount of cash and other valuables.
Dr. Balwant Singh, who has his clinic at his Camp Street
residence, was robbed while attending to patients by two men
who were believed to be armed, an employee said.
This newspaper learnt that the doctor was relieved of his
wallet, cell phone and a few other valuables.
The employee said the Police responded very quickly
after being informed but it was not known if anyone was

A beef export seminar was
also held recently followed by
a training programme for farm-
ers identified in the beef and
dairy industries as potential
exporters, Persaud said.
With respect to the latter,
the minister pointed out that
during last year 1,980 cows
had artificial insemination
(A.I) and 70t) calves produced
through A.I were tagged.
In addition. 667 milk qual-
ity tests were conducted and
101 training and extension ac-
tivities carried out, and a Na-
tional Cattle Farmers Congress
was held, Persaud reported.
He added that it is likely
that chicken will soon be ex-
ported to Trinidad and Tobago
as efforts in this direction are

being intensified.
In this regard, he said also
that officials from Trinidad and
Tobago are expected in Guyana
in another two weeks to ascertain
that the local poultry industry
has met the required sanitary and
health standards to give the green
light to Trinidadian authorities
for importing chicken.
The minister also recalled
that as part of the programme of

Strikes, protests hit Latin

America mining boom

By Marco Aquino

(Reuters) Angry villagers
living in huts around Latin
America's biggest gold mine
hold protest rallies, accusing
the mining operation of pol-
luting water supplies and
damaging farmland in their
poor Andean community.
Meanwhile, workers at the
Yanacocha mine in northern Peru
gather nearby to put the finishing
touches to their demand for a pay
rise and start their negotiations with
the company with a threat to strike
if they do not get the hike they
Across Latin America,
labour and environmental con-
flicts seem to be growing in tan-
dem with the robust expansion
of regional mining companies,
which are expected to report
record profits this year, thanks
to high global metals prices.
"The strike is our only weapon
because we're not feeling the effects
of this bonanza," said Guillermo
Nina, general secretary of the union
at Yanacocha, which lies near the
town of Cajamarca, some 535 miles
(855 km) northeast of Lima.
A previous environmental
dispute in Cajamarca, where an
Inca Indian chief once tried in
vain to buy his freedom for a
prison cell full of gold from
Spanish conquerors, forced the
mine to cancel a project to boost
output in 2004. Protests by lo-
cal peasants shut the mine for
three days in August 2006.

LONDON (Reuters) British

so far stayed silent on the ex-
Brown, expected to take
over as premier when Blair
steps down this year, said:
"Now that we know the full
picture of what happened, we
can sum this up as a deplorable
set of events."
A mobile phone video
showed observers taunting
Saddam with shouts of "Go to
hell" and chanting the name of
a Shi'ite cleric before the former
Iraqi leader fell through a gal-
lows trapdoor.
The images provoked inter-
national criticism and further in-
flamed sectarian passions in
Iraq. Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri
al-Maliki has pledged to inves-
tigate the way the hanging was
Asked about the hanging

tal Friday, Blair said: "I've de-

I will talk about all those other

such pressures.
Similar conflicts have flared
elsewhere in Peru. the third-big-
gest global producer of copper

Meanwhile in Chile, the
world's top copper mining

Analysts expect copper
prices to decrease somewhat in
2007. but say that on average
they should remain high, while
gold often used as a hedge
against the U.S. dollar's volatil-
ity is likely to further rise
from 2006's 25-year highs.
"When prices are high. these
problems start popping up. The
workers and those who depend on
the industry want their share and
governments in their turn take this
kind of attitude as well," said
HSBC Securities mining analyst
Victor Robles.
In the past few years, gov-
ernments in Chile and Peru
have imposed new royalties
on mining production, to the
initial discontent of mining
companies. Peru last month

facing the region's mining indus-

fantas best picture

By Chris Michaud

NEW YORK, (Reuters) The
National Society of Film
Critics bucked a trend yes-
terday and named the Span-
ish-language fantasy film
"Pan's Labyrinth" the year's
best picture ahead of next
month's Academy Awards.
Helen Mirren in "The
Queen" and Forest Whitaker in
"The Last King of Scotland"
took the critics' top acting
honours, adding to their grow-
ing list of awards and setting
them up as Oscar front-runners.
Directed by Mexican-born
Guillermo del Toro, "Pan's
Labyrinth" tells the story of'
little Ofelia, played by Ivana
Baquero, who is enraptured by
fairy tales and magic lands and
who comes to live in an en-
chanted forest with her mother
in the era of Spanish fascism.
With its use of fantasy crea-
tures such as fairies, insects and
toads, the movie stands apart

from films based on real events
such as "The Queen," "United
93" and "Letters From Iwo
Jima," which have dominated
the early awards season and
appear poised to score at the
"United 93" director Paul
Greengrass was named best di-
rector for the Sept. 11-themed
film about passengers who re-
belled against hijackers on the jet
that crashed in rural Pennsylva-
Peter Morgan won best
screenplay for "The Queen," the
hit drama about Britain's Queen
Elizabeth 11. played by Mirren.
during the days after Princess
Diana's death.
Honours for best support-
ing performances went to Mark
Wahlberg for the crime drama
"The Departed" and Meryl
Streep for two roles, as a tough
fashion editor in the comedy'
"The Devil Wears Prada," and
as a singer in the film adapta-
tion of Garrison Keillor's "A

Prairie Home Companion."
The film critics, in their 41st
annual awards, named "An In-
convenient Truth." the docu-
mentary on Al Gore's educa-
tional campaign about global
warming, as the year's best non-
fiction film.
The awards to Mirren
and Whitaker were their lat-
est for their portrayals of
real people. Whitaker plays
Ugandan dictator Idi Amin,
continuing the recent trend of
top honours including the
Oscars going to actors
playing nonfiction roles.
Oscar nominees will be
named Jan. 23, and winners will
be unveiled at the annual star-
filled Hollywood gala on Feb.
Other National Society of
Film Critics awards went to
Emmanuel Lubezki for best
cinematography for "Chil-
dren of Men" and to "Inland
Empire" for best experimen-
tal film.

A Ministry of Health feature

EVERY day we experience
sound in our environment
such as from the television,
radio, washing machine, auto-
mobiles, buses and trucks.

But when an individual is
exposed to harmful sounds -
those considered too loud or
loud sounds over a long period -
sensitive structures of the inner
ear can be damaged, causing
noise-induced hearing loss
The Ministry of Health will
soon launch an anti-noise nui-
sance campaign as part of its
work plan for 2007.

However, the success of
this campaign depends on the
public. This is so because we of-
ten tolerate noise nuisances for
varying reasons and even though
some of us may not be aware,
this is actually detrimental to our

health. The ministry's campaign
will seek to sensitise the public
about the effects of noise on
their hearing.


Sound is often taken for
granted and we rarely appreciate
all its functions. It provides en-

joyable experiences such as lis-
tening to music or the singing of
birds. It enables spoken commu-
nication and it can alert or warn
us with the wailing of a siren,
for example.
Noise is sound that is either
unwanted or unpleasant. The
level of annoyance depends not
only on the type or quality of
the sound, but also our attitude
towards it.

The ear has three main
parts: the outer, middle, and in-
ner ear. Sound waves enter
through the outer ear and reach
the middle ear where they cause
the eardrum to vibrate. These
vibrations travel through the in-
ner ear and are converted into
nerve impulses. These nerve im-
pulses are carried to the brain,
where they are interpreted as

Noise-induced hearing loss
can be caused by a one-time ex-
posure to loud sound, as well as

by repeated exposure to sounds
at various loudness levels over an
extended period of time.
The loudness of sound is
measured in units called decibels.
For example, normal conversa-
tion is approximately 60 deci-
bels, the humming of a refrigera-
tor is 40 decibels.
Sounds above 85 decibels
are considered harmful. These
may include motor bikes, music
from stereo systems, manufac-
turing factories, Wartsilla en-
gines, sawmills and generators.
Exposure to harmful
sounds causes damage to the
sensitive hair cells of the inner
ear as well as the hearing nerve.
Exposure to loud noise can per-
manently damage your hearing
no matter how old or young you

The symptoms of noise-in-
duced hearing loss increase
gradually over a period of con-
tinuous exposure. Sounds may
become distorted or muffled and
it may be difficult for the per-
son to understand speech.

How to prevent noise-induced
hearing loss:
Noise-induced hearing loss
is preventable. All individuals
should understand the hazards of
noise and how to practise good

health in everyday life-.,
Know which noises
can cause damage (those above
85 decibels).
Avoid hazardous noise
in the environment (including
loud music in mini-buses, at
weddings, fairs. parties).
Make family, friends'..
and colleagues aware of the haz-
ards of noise.
: Wear earplugs or other
hearing protective devices when
involved'in a loud activity (spe-
cial earplugs and earmuffs are
available at hardware storess.
S Protecc children who
are too \young to protect themn-

Exposure to noise is
also associated with a range of
possible physical effects includ-

What to do:
Have a medical exami-

had to work with him.

You're in a committed loving
relationship, but can you honestly
say the thought of having an affair
has never crossed your mind?
SHERRY DIXON asks when flirting
becomes betrayal.

One of the most exhilarating, self-destructive and cruel things
that has ever happened to me was the affair that wasn't. I
never had sex with him not actual sex, anyway. We both
had the ridiculous notion that while sex was in the head, it
was safe. But, of course, that's where it was most dangerous,
because anything could happen.
He was married and I was in a long term relationship. I don't
know what his motivation was, but I suppose I must have been
bored. Security does that. You never consciously think, 'Oh, I'm
bored.' You just find yourself flirting without intent.
He -just let's call him The Man was someone I worked along-
side. Sharp, droll, intriguing, cold, achingly handsome probably
too handsome. I thought it was safe to flirt with him, reveal some
cleavage, but he was out of my league. The boundaries of my non-
betrayal were thrilling because I didn't have to work him, I only

Everyone flirted at work. We were operating in the high ten-
sion of a PR Agency and, at the end of the day, everyone needed to
release the pressure. It came with the territory. But it was more
than that. The Man and I were, as he said, 'an accident waiting to
happen'. It wasn't just a physical attraction, we were soul mates.
We grew dependent on making each other laugh, pressing each other's
buttons to amuse, to abuse, to reveal. We were demanding of
each other in a way we would never have been if we had planned
to have a proper relationship.
Of course, sex did rear its head. We often talked about sex with
other people, although we were really talking about sex with each

other. And though nothing actually happened, it felt sufficiently
like infidelity to make me feel I had to explain myself. I had the
odd idea that confessing everything to my partner would make the
situation better. That it would sort out the boringness of our rela-
tionship. So, I made things worse by asking him to listen to how I
felt about another man.
Hello! Did I open up a can of worms of what! My partner
was silent and very troubled, and he remained that way for a
very long time. Bizarrely, I think I had expected his sympa-
thy, because I was trying to cope with loving one man while
being emotionally obsessed with another. It finished some time
after The Man found a job at a different agency; we ended
our 'relationship (because that's really what it felt like) dur-
ing a tear-stained evening of thwarted passion, when I told
him never to call me again.

Just today, by complete coincidence whilst I was looking
through an old diary, I found a note he wrote to me soon after-
wards, saying, and I quote: 'I miss you. I miss talking to you. I
phone you every day but hang up before it rings. All that stuff...'
Wow and I never actually had sex with him.
Soon after we 'broke up' he left his wife for another woman. It
wasn't me, but I was probably instrumental. His wife is now a pow-
erful person. I see her occasionally around town. She smiles at me
and I could almost choke. It's difficult to know what infidelity and
what isn't. Which is worse bonding deeply,, even passionately,
with another man, although it leads to nothing: or actually kissing
someone or more even though the act is passionless?
For the purpose of this article. I've taken a straw poll of my
friends. Almost all the men say that a sexual thought about some-
one else is a betrayal in other words, just thinking about doing it
is as bad as doing it. (Considering men are said to think of sex ever
six seconds, I don't know how they live with themselves). My
female friends, however, have a far more flexible approach to what
constitutes infidelity. Some say that actually having sex is no rea-
son for guilt, as long as it's meaningless sex; others say an incident
as slight as walking the dog together or having lunch you omit to
tell your partner about, is an act of betrayal. But one thing is cer-
tain, all the women in long term relationships I spoke to confessed
to flirting with infidelity in one way or another.
It's not always the most obvious act that constitutes betrayal.
But the question is also why, when we're in happy, stable relation-
ships, do we even bother to contemplate being unfaithful? Some-
times, it's about the excitement of not playing it safe. Sometimes.
it's the thrill of meeting a person who really seems to understand
you. And sometimes, it's a game where what you really want is the
attention, and not the other person at all.
The most fertile ground for this type of flirtig is where the most
dangerous meets the most secure at work or. even worse, with
the partners of friends. My friend June, who has lived with her
boyfriend for four years, explains her workplace flirtations this way:
"'Having se,' th my boyfriend has become comfortable rather than
a sign of hovw ,ich we desire each other. We all need to be fancied
and feel that w,' in:cy someone. We all have days that go by with-
out -iir... our bodies a second thought. These guys at work reas-
sure me that I do have abody. but I have to be careful not to overdo
it with one person. If I flirt with everybody, I won't get seriously
involved with one person, so 1 feel my relationship with my boy-
friend is safe.'
What isn't safe is when all the flirting takes place between
two people, like myself and The Man. Then, the question is -
how far will it go? That's what spurs it on and ultimately, that's
what stops it- 7. t,,

Million Nightclub

Opens in Linden

GUYANA is gearing up for
Cricket World Cup and one

his bets on making Linden

of Guyana before, during and
long after the international

Lindener who has spent 24
years living in the United States,

largest nightclub in the country
and could comfortably host up
to 1500 patrons.
The club's DJ booth is
located in the upper flat of
the building which also
houses the VIP section.
The DJ overlooks the en-
tire dance floor and the lower
flat. Bars are located on both
flats with the main bar being on
the bottom flat. The Manager/
Owner, Rock Hamilton said he
takes security very seriously
"and so I have installed three
levels of security for both men
and women when they are
making their way into the club
and into the VIP section".
there's also a no smoking, no
weapons policy at the club".
In addition, there are five
exit points, three of those being
emergency exits. "I have in-
vested over $60 million dollars

in this business and I want it to
work not just for the Lindeners
but for each and every
Guyanese who is looking for a
good night, full of entertain-
ment." Hamilton said.
Ice Rock will also be avail-
able for hosting special events
including weddings and birth-
day celebrations. The club has
a large kitchen which cooks all
the finger foods you can think
of including fish fingers, prawns
and shrimp. Full time waiters
are also available so patrons can
dance and place their orders at
the bar without moving away
from their dancing partner.
The interior design re-
sembles many of the New
York clubs, with neon colors
and a Guyanese dash of con-
struction work with the
arched balcony overlooking
the bottom flat.

- Murder convict accused judge of pressuring jury

Iffles By George Barclay

IN 1960 Chief Justice Harold Boilers presided over the Mahaica mur
der trial at which Shoukatallie and his brother Mohamed Alli were con
victed and sentenced to death.
On appeal to the Federal Supreme Court, Shoukatallie's conviction and death sentence was af-
firmed but brother Mohamed was freed by that court.
Dissatisfied with the ruling, Shoukatallie appealed to the Privy Council, alleging among other things.
that the trial judge's undue pressure on the jury, led to his conviction. He contended that trial judge
Harry Boilers' rejection of the original claim of disagreement, resulted in the jury finally returning a
guilty verdict.
The Privy Council, after a three day, hearing, dismissed the appeal and affirmed the conviction and
death sentence. Shoukat has since suffered death by hanging.
The facts of the appeal are that the appellant appealed to the Privy Council from the decision of
the Federal Supreme Court confirming his conviction and sentence tor murder.
On the last day of a 15-day hearing the jury took their places at 8.40 a.m. and the judge sat at 9
a.m. Save for a luncheon break of one hour and 10 minutes, the jury sat continuously until 4.50 p.m. ,
when they retired to consider their verdict after a summing up which took nearly five hours to
At 8.40 p.m. they returned into court stating that they could not agree on a verdict and needed no
further direction.
The judge however reminded them of the oath which they had taken, exhorted them to put
aside extraneous and improper matters from their deliberations, and adjured them to "re

turn to the jury room....and make up (their) minds one way
or another".
"The community is looking to you to return a verdict
in accordance with the evidence and in accordance with
your own conscience. If you fail to do that you will not
only be bringing disgrace upon the community but you
will be bringing disgrace upon yourselves, which is per-
haps even worse."
It was argued for the appellant that the judge exerted undue
pressure on the jury when they returned at 8.40 p.m. in that he
told them that they must give a verdict one way of the other and
never told them that they were at liberty to disagree.
The Privy Council held that the jury were under a heavy strain
in listening and deliberating for so many hours and it would have
been better if the judge had not finished his summing-up that night
but had left it over till the next morning but this was no ground
for upsetting the verdict.
Also, the Council found that there is nothing wrong in a judge
exhorting a jury to reach a verdict, and indeed it may be very proper
that he should do so, so long as he does not use phrases which
may import a measure of coercion such as was held to have been
exerted in R.V.Mills, [1939] 2 All England Report, 299.
Further, it ruled that the judge's exhortation to the jury was
perhaps too strongly worded and might have differently put, but it
did not involve such a measure of coercion as to invalidate the ver-
On these grounds found the appeal was dismissed.
Representing the appellant at the hearing of the Appeal in the
Privy Council were Phineas Quass, Q.C., M. P. Solomon and A.S.
Manraj., J. T. Molony, Q.C. and J.G Le Quesne appeared for the
Lord Denning, in delivering the reasons for report said that on
February 10, 1960, a man named Rampat (also called Peeka) was
Peeka had gone in the early morning to check on his cows
at a creek on the Mahaica River. He was paddling a corial,
which is a dug-out canoe. He never returned alive.


Five days later his body was recovered from the river and from
its condition it appeared that someone had shot him with a shot
gun then his body (whilst he was still alive) had been tied to a
log of wood by means of vine branches and it had been thrown
into the river.
Suspicion fastened on two brothers named Shoukatallie (No.1
accused) and Mohamed Ali (No. 2 accused). They were arrested
and charged with the murder.
On May 16, 1960, they were indicted in the Supreme
Court of British Guiana and tried before Justice Harold
Boilers and a jury. The case was heard for 15 days. In the
early morning of June 3, 1960, the jury found Shoukatallie
guilty of murder and they also found Mohamed Ali guilty of
murder but in his case with a very strong recommendation to
mercy .
Justice Boilers sentenced both of them to death. Both ap-
pealed to the Federal Supreme Court (Justce Halliman C.J.
and Federal judges Rennie and Marnan), who on September
14, 1960 dismissed the appeal of Shoutkatallie. However, they
allowed the appeal of Mohamed Ali and set aside his convic-
tion and sentence.
Shoukatallie appealed for special leave to appeal to Her Maj-
esty in Council and was granted it. His appeal was heard on July 4
and 5, 1961, when their Lordships s said that they would humbly
advise Her Majesty that the appeal should be dismissed, the Privy
Council disclosed.
The appeal was based on the conduct of the judge at the trial.
It was said that he had exerted undue pressure on the jury to come
to an agreement and that for this reason the verdict could not stand.
The point cannot properly be appreciated without some descrip-
tion of the case.
The case for the Crown was that Shoukatallie and
Mohamed Ali were acting together in concert in a common
design to kill Peeka.
According to the prosecution, shortly before his death Peeka
was paddling along the river in his corial.
A shot rang out. It came from another corial in which were the

lAk H From page VI

two accused men, Shoukatallie and Mohamed Ali.
Shoukatallie was the man who fired the shot. He had a
gun in his hand. Mohamed Ali was steering the corial.
Shoukatallie shouted "Shut your rass, you no dead yet?"
Shoukatallie then fired the gun again at Peeka, who fell on his
face in his corial.
Mohamed Ali then paddled his corial close to Peeka's corial.
Shoukatallie got hold of Peeka's corial and pulled it across the creek.
A short time later, Shoukatallie and Mohamed Ali were seen near
two corials.
Shoukatallie was chopping wood. Mohamed was twisting vine
branches. Five days later a search was made in the river and diver
The body of Peeka was found tied to a log of wood by
a vine. A post mortem examination indicated that Peeka
was shot, then tied up and immersed in the water while
still alive.
The accused men, Shoukatallie and Mohamed Ali did not give
evidence on oath. They both made statements from the dock de-
nying that they were in the vicinity or knew anything at all about
the crime.
The defence attacked the creditability of the witnesses for the
prosecution, saying that four of the principal witnesses were mem-
bers of a family who had a feud with the family of the accused
and that the fifth had been bribed.
The Privy Council did not find any merit in the arguments sub-
mitted on behalf of the Shoukatallie.
The strongest ground submitted by the appellant was
the one which accused the trial judge of rejecting the jury's
original verdict of disagreement and directing them to return
to the jury room with the hope of reaching a verdict of guilty
or not guilty.
"It is everyday practice for a judge thus to exhort a jury;
to reach a verdict. There is nothing wrong in it, indeed it
maybe very proper he should do so, so long as he does not
use phrases which import a message of coercion, Lord Den-
ning said.

book was first published in 1904
and the movie of the same name
was released in 1959 and
appeared in Guyana during the
1980s. That movie, directed by
Mel Ferrer, starred Audrey

The movie was not a hit

movie written and directed by

issues of racial prejudices,
sexual infatuation between a
pupil and teacher, teenage
angst and inspirational

by E. R. Braithwaite who was

was a pilot in the Royal Air

told against the backdrop of the struggle for Guyana's independence and 'also documents the more insidious
forms of everyday economic and cultural repression used throughout colonialism's long history'.

This 50-minute video produced by Ingrid Lewis in 1990 is based on the poetry of Grace Nichols' award-winning book of
5the same name. Nichols won the Commonwealth Poetry Prize with that first book of poems in 1983.
The film chronicles the history of slavery through the eyes of Caribbean women in spoken word, song and dance.
It shows the conditions on sugar plantations, the unfolding acts of defiance and the rebellion which led to eventual
freedom. It tells of the African woman fighting for her space in society.
Grace Nichols, born in Georgetown in 1950, migrated to England in 1977. In 1996, she won The Guyana Prize for Literature
in category of poetry with the publication, 'Sunris'.
This film,. 1991, is about infidelity and AIDS and is based on a play of the same name, both written and produced by
Palomina Mohamed. This film was completed on a shoe-string budget and is listed as the first all-local production.
The play was first staged at the National Cultural Centre in Guyana.
Palomnia Mohamed has won the Guyana Prize for Literature on three occasions in the same category of drama. As a film-
maker, she has so far produced six films.
The novel written by Ian McDonald was first published in 1969 and reissued two times thereafter. Set in Trinidad, parts
of it were written while the author was at Cambridge University. while he was living in Trinidad where he was born and while
he was living in Guyana. his adopted home since 1955.
The novel which is on the Caribbean Examination Council reading list won the Royal Society of Literature Prize for best
regional novel.
"The Humming Bird Tree' was made into a film by the BBC in 1992.

Port Mourant boy John Fingal tells his story

By Frederick Halley

LOOSING four close friends
during his six-month stint in
Afghanistan is still fresh in
the memory of John Fingal.
Guyana-born ''inp V.*,,
has been a member of the Cana-
dian Armed forces for the past
five years, tells of his experience
in the war-torn desert and moun-
tainous former Taliban country.
Very passionate over his role
as a Canadian soldier, the 25-
year-old Fingal spoke exten-
sively about the mission in Af-
ghanistan and the sacrifices be-
ing endured to put Canadian
troops at the forefront of public
Touching on the deaths of
his four colleagues, Fingal dis-
closed that this occurred during
"Operation Medusa", the largest
operation spearheaded by the
Canadians during his tour of
duty in the early part of 2006.
"It's a lot to take in when
you watch someone go off to
do this operation and you say
to them, 'I'll see you in a
couple of days' or 'I'll see you
when it's over', not expecting
that they wouldn't coine back.
However, at the back of your
mind, you know there's a pos-
sibility that they would not
Fingal not only lost his four
friends but the operation also re-
sulted in the largest number of
Canadian battlefield casualties
since the Korean War, keeping
Canadians riveted to develop-
ments in war-tomrn Afghanistan.
Forty-four Canadian soldiers
.have died ini Afghanistan since

2002, but 36 of those deaths
came in the last year.
Acknowledging that "we
were able to push back the
Taliban into their hides, Fingal
said this was done at great sac-
rifice, taking into account the
number of lives lost. This is
why we need to remember those
soldiers and honour them be-
cause of the sacrifice they made.
They knew what they were get-
ting inio and they still got up,
put on their armour and went
forth into battle."
Close to the end of his sec-
ond three-year contract with the
Canadian Armed Forces, Fingal,
who is a Lands Communications
and Information Systems Tech-
nician- responsible for the main-
tenance and upkeep as well as
basic operations of all military
communication equipment ex-
plained that he was never in-

Speaking on the changing
nature of the Canadian
Armed Forces, Fingal said
"Canada hasn't been on the
offensive since the Korean
War, so it's a stark change to
go from a peace-keeping na-
tion to a nation that's actu-

ally out there on the offensive
but I believe that what we are
doing has to be done in order
to protect Canadian interest
"I believe that a lot of Ca-
nadians arc fairly naive as to the
operations that go on here within
Canada that deals with terrorist
organizations. We are a nation
that is equally as big a target as
America because of our great
economy. We just cannot stand
aside and let someone else deal
with this problem."
According to Fingal, granted
that when America went into Af-
ghanistan, they didn't do i in .
diplomatic manner theI. re-
vaded the country but ii' .
part of history now.
"We have to help st:ihilisc
this nation that has been de-
stroyed. That's our role W\e rc
not only over there fighting and
dying, we are also building
bridges, opening schools. \,e are
giving the Afghan people a chance
-to help in the rebuilding of hbeir
nation. It is a war, so therL w ill
be casualties and unfortun.ilel
some of these casualtii.I %ill
come home in flag-draped cul-
It is therefore up t, us a~
Canadians to honour' then in
their deaths and in their, i. i
and respect what they ar,.' i,,in-
in Afghanistan."
Fingal opined that dJ: Uir,
"losing our brothers in thi .n'i

"And here in the home-
front, the only thing we can do
is to maintain a positive nnmind-
.set to support the troop, be-
cause they are the ones on ihe

ground, in the heat, in tht ilil. ... ..

in the snow, having sleepless
nights, wounded on the battle-
field, coming home in coffins and
all this is done not for them-
selves but so that Canada could
continue to enjoy the peace and
tranquility we enjoy here."
Fingal disagrees that the im-
age of the Canadian soldiers have
changed as alleged in some quar-
ters here. "I don't think the im-
age of the Canadian soldiers have
changed at all. I think that Ca-
nadian soldiers are now put in a
different situation and the out-
..... -,..

come is more positive.'
"We are always there to
support whenever the call is
made so I think that it's just
that the Afghanistan war is
such a newsmaker that they
are starting to really see that
Canadian soldiers aren't those
that murder innocent lives but
are there to answer the call of
our government."
Strange enough, despite all
the happenings in Afghanistan.

But while Fingal feels the
war will not be won, he ex-
plained that it will come to an
end eventually. "The war will at'
sometime come to an end. We
will not give up unless our gov-

Fingal, who attained the rank

attacks, the constant danger of
carrying your own personal

ARIES -- There are clues all around you today, and it won't take too much
intellectual energy for you to decipher what is really going on. Unfortunately,
when you discover the truth, you might be disappointed. Your imagination is
a lot more active than was warranted in this particular situation. It just goes
to show that a little knowledge is a very powerful thing, and that the truth is
sometimes less exciting than what your imagination can cook up.

TAURUS -- It looks like that person you've been working so hard to charm is
finally coming around! Build on that momentum today by extending a casual
invitation -- maybe ask this person to lunch or just to join you for a walk
around the block. It's important to start a conversation that is centered more
on personal ideas and philosophies than on the day-to-day stuff you two
usually discuss. Keep moving forward with this person -- all the signs are

GEMINI -- It looks like that person you've been working so hard to charm is
finally coming around! Build on that momentum today by extending a casual
invitation -- maybe ask this person to lunch or just to join you for a walk
around the block. It's important to start a conversation that is centered more
on personal ideas and philosophies than on the day-to-day stuff you two
usually discuss. Keep moving forward with this person -- all the signs are

CANCER -- Your schedule is somewhat relaxed right now, but a group of
people may place restrictions on it. Folks close to you are going to be more
interested in voicing their own opinions than in working collaboratively and
making necessary compromises. Put on your efficiency hat and try to be the
voice of reason. You can whip these people into shape and remind everyone
that there's no point in taking things personally.

LEO -- What you used to think was important in your life might not seem so
important today. It's time to reevaluate your priorities. The world around you
is going through some changes, and your perspective is shifting right along
with it. Putting new ideas to work is what you should.focus on right now.
Listen to foreign music, watch a new television show, or pick up a nonfiction
book about something completely unfamiliar. Educate yourself and broaden
your horizons

VIRGO -- It might be too early for spring, but you should nevertheless get a
real sense that something new is about to emerge from the drab landscape of
your daily routine. Like a sweet little hopeful sapling, your attitude about where
your life is going is climbing up toward the sky -- slowly but surely. Expres-
sions of kindness will be blooming all around you as flowers do in spring.
This day is an advanced look at the wonderful direction your life is going in.

LIBRA -- If you're less than thrilled by your current employment situation,
take the advice of someone who was once in your shoes. What you hear
might not be pleasant, but it will help you focus on what you should do next.
Sometimes moving away from something you don't want is just as effective
as moving toward something you do want. At least you are taking control of
things and not letting other people's priorities become your priorities.

SCORPIO -- There is an excessive amount of tumultuous energy going on in
your life right now -- mostly due to some negative thinkers who are hovering
around you. They don't have as much control over you as you think, so re-
mind yourself that you are in control now. Avoid dealing with these downers
today and let them solve their own problems (for a change). Take control of
your life and cancel a few appointments today. You don't owe them anything
other than honesty.

SAGITTARIUS -- Today offers the opportunity to create a major turning point
in one of your non-romantic relationships. All you have to do is turn down
the level of attention you have been giving this person. This is about setting
realistic expectations for the future. Make sure you are capable of sustaining
the energy you are giving this person. If you aren't, you should modify your
behavior so it is more accurate. Set the tone.

CAPRICORN -- You've recently witnessed someone's poor treatment of the
environment, so it's no wonder that conservation is on.your mind today. All'
your energy and imagination will be focused on finding ways to save our
planet. Being aware of your place in this world is also making you aware of
1-w a bit of positive energy can move mountains. Apply some of your charm
toward a higher Ju. -- vour impact will astound you.

AQUARIUS -- You have great insight into the major cv going on right
now, and a lot of people would give their eyeteeth to be privy to what you
see on a daily basis. This is a time to truly value your position in life, and to
not take anything for granted. Resist the temptation to lord your power over
other people who are at a slight disadvantage -- you don't want to burn any
bridges. Keep your cool and play this out more conservatively than you prob-
ably want to.

PISCES -- You have every right to ask people to slow down lihe pace today!
Stand up for yourself and let the folks around you know how you are feeling.
Tell them to stop their engines, cool their jets, and take it easy already -- be-
cause you are either getting confused or feeling left behind. The team dy-
namics may make it intimidating to speak up to everyone right now, so pull
your best ally aside and see what kind of influence he or she can exercise.

launches G-Unit novellas
Rapper 50 Cent has marked his foray into the world of publishing with a book signing in
New York.
The hip hop star, 31, has co-written a series of fictional books featuring characters based on
former members of his group G-Unit.
50 Cent, who is due to star in the film New Orleans opposite Robert De Niro next year,
appeared at New York's Borders bookstore.
The titles include Death Before Dishonor and Baby Brother.
The books explore similar issues to those that feature in 50 Cent's songs Death Before Dis-
honor carries the tagline: "One reason to live. Three reasons to die".
Gangster image
"These tales will tell the truth about 'the life'; the sex, guns and cash; the brutal highs and
short lives of the players on the streets," said publishers MTV and Pocket Books.
50 Cent whose real name is Curtis Jackson is known for his gangster image and has sold 22
million albums around the world.
He was criticised last year by some who said his film Get Rich Or Die Tryin' condoned vio-

JAIPUR INSPIRED in his dreams and mesmerised by
the beauty of Bollywood actor Aishwarya Rai, a sculptor is
at work to make 25 statues of the glamour icon.
"A divine lady appeared in my dreams and suggested
me to make sculptures of a beautiful woman. She told me
that it would give me recognition across the country," Arjun
Prajapati said.
"So eventually I decided to portray Aishwarya Rai as
she is one of the most beautiful women I could think of.
"Each week I conceived a new pose of Aishwarya in
my dreams and I worked on each of them. I would soon
complete 25 different poses of the actress," Prajapati told
Once the work is over, he plans to hold an exhibition
of the statues in Mumbai and hopes superstar Amitabh
Bachchan would agree to inaugurate it.
Prajapati said the idols were meant to satisfy his cre-
ative urge and will not be put up for sale.
"Aishwarya is among the most beautiful of women,
so making her sculptures is a real pleasure for me. I would
first display these statues in an exhibition in Mumbai and
would later put them in my museum here, which has over
a thousand different works," the artiste said.
Recipient of a number of awards and accolades from
national and international organizations, Prajapati said he
mastered his art through continuous dedication and hard
The sculptor runs Arjun Arts, a gallery here well
known for artistic stoneworks, marble sculptures, sand
stone and clay.
"I started the gallery with the sole objective of re-
viving the waning art of folk sculptures and giving a
new and modern look to the art," he said, adding he
was planning to set up an art school too.

FOURTEEN-year-old Lisa
Punch dealt the audience at
the National Cultural Centre
a knockout blow with her ren-
dition of Whitney Houston's 'I
Will Always Love You' to
emerge the winner of
Guyana's first reality show.
Although Star Guyana
may not have reached the expec-
tations of Guyanese, no one can
argue the fact that it did produce
many stars, Lisa sitting at the
top of the bunch.
When she took to the
stage of the National Cultural
Centre (NCC) on the evening of
January 1, everything, except the
task at hand was blocked from
her mind, Lisa said.
And although her perfor-
mances in the other two aspects
of the competition drama and
dance were not as strong, her
4* ^ "^

song was enough to see her
Still basking in her success,
the Virgo born, third form North
Georgetown Secondary School
student sat down with the Sun-
day Chronicle at her Charlotte
Street, Georgetown home Fri-
day and spoke about the excite-
ment of the competition.
Lisa always knew she was
talented, but the support of her
parents and their encouragement
to enter the competition pro-
vided her with a new level of
confidence which she took
throughout the competition.
"My parents heard about
the audition and they told me
and decided to put me in be-
cause they knew 1 had talent,"
she told the Sunday Chronicle.
She said the beginning of
the competition was easy and
there was no nervousness.
However, it did begin to creep

in towards the end.
"Coming down to the end I
became nervous because every-
one is good and you have to be
better," she said.
The road to the title was not
smooth and Lisa stumbled on her
first hurdle when she was cho-
sen as a wild card to enter the
competition. This did not sit
well with the teen who recalled
that she cried backstage.
"I did not expect that; I
worked hard during the auditions
and to be given a wild card hurt
and so I cried."
But she took it as an oppor-
tunity to work harder and ensure
she never found herself in that
position again and she never
She singled out Travis
Bowen, who eventually placed
second, and Lois Moseley for
special mention as her tough-
est competition but main-


trained that throughout she
knew she had what it took to
emerge victorious.
Lisa said she never doubted
her ability to win the competi-
tion and put all her trust in God
and winning meant that God had
answered her prayers.
"1I expected to win because
1 prayed and fasted and God an-
swered my prayers," the smiling
winner said.
She said preparing for the
competition was not easy since
she also had her school end of
term examinations to study for.
The final week, she said,
was especially difficult since
the performers had to learn
three new routines in one
She does not plan to enter
more competitions at the moment
but will be focusing on her Car-
ibbean Secondary Examinations
Certificate (CSEC) examinations

and pursuing her dreams of be-
coming a lawyer.
Lisa, who pocketed
$300,000 from the competition,
expressed gratitude to God, her
parents, John and Nafeeza
Punch, and all those who sup-
ported her during the competi-
Her mother told the Sunday
Chronicle that she was always
aware of her daughter's ability.
She also praised Lisa for the
faith she had in God throughout
the competition. She recalled
that on the day of the finals,- her
daughter prayed and fasted
throughout even though she (her
mother) was against it at first.
Lisa, who plans to pursue
her career in entertainment
later, figures that balancing it
with a career in law would not
be that difficult because she
already has the singing basic
- strength in her voice.

GUWAHATI, India (Reuters)
- Separatist rebels triggered
an explosion in India's res-
tive northeastern state of
Assan yesterday, killing
seven people and taking the
toll in a wave of coordinated
overnight violence to 55, po-
lice said.
The attacks have been

blamed on the United Liberation
Front of Asom (ULFA), which
has been fighting for an indepen-
dent homeland for Assainese
people since 1979.
In the latest strike last night,
rebels blew up a government
vehicle with an improvised ex-

The attacks forced the au-
thorities to step up security

Aussies confident of

continued world


By Julian Linden

SYDNEY, (Reuters) -
Australia's golden cricketing
era will continue for years to
come despite the retirement
of four talismanic figures, ac-
cording to a confident Ricky
Australia have dominated
the world game for the past 15
years, but the retirements of
Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath,
Justin Langer and Damien
Martyn have ripped a giant hole
in Ponting's all-conquering team.
Ponting said it was impos-
sible to immediately replace
players of that calibre but that
he was sure Australia had
enough depth in their first-class
ranks to stay ahead of the pack.
"I've got a good feeling
about the next crop of play-
_ ers," Ponting told a news con-
ference at the Sydney
Cricket Ground yesterday.
"I'm excited about that.
When you get young players in

the squad there's excitement
around. With the nucleus of this
group it will still be together and
I can see us being a very domi-
nant team."
Australian cricket officials
had been preparing for this day
after the simultaneous depar-
ture of Greg Chappell, Dennis
Lillee and Rod Marsh in 1984.
It took Australia five years
to rebuild their side after the trio
quit but the future looks much
brighter this time.
The Australian domestic
first-class competition has al-
ways been a great breeding
ground for future test players,
while Cricket Australia's Centre
of Excellence is already busy
putting the finishing touches to
the next generation of players.
The most promising
youngsters have been build-
ing experience in one-day
internationals for years with
several graduating to the Test
side with great success.

Mike Hussey, 31, has aver-
aged almost 80 from 16 Tests
since making his debut in 2005
while Michael Clarke, 25,
scored two hundreds in the
Ashes series after fighting his
way back into the team.
Phil Jaques and Chris
Rogers have emerged as capable
replacements for Langer while
there is a queue of talented
young middle-order batsmen.
led by Adam Voges, eagerly
awaiting their chance.
Andrew Symonds showed
he is on his way to becoming
Australia's next all-rounder
when he smashed 156 in the
Melbourne Test while concerns
about the depth of Australia's
fast bowling stocks have eased
after the emergence of Stuart
Clark, who was the leading
wicket-taker in the Ashes with
26 scalps.
Brett Lee had already re-
placed McGrath as the new
leader of the attack while Shaun
Tait. Mitchell Johnson and
Nathan Bracken are vying for
the third seamer's place.
Stuart MacGill provides an
obvious, albeit short-term, re-

Weakened Bermuda hoping

to overcome confident Haiti

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad,
(CMC) Bermuda, weak-
ened by the loss of several
crucial players, will seek to
draw first blood when they
clash with Haiti in the first
leg of the Digicel Caribbean
Cup's Group J tie today.
The two teams square off at
the Ato Boldon Stadium at 4
pm for the final spot in the
Digicel Caribbean Cup Finals,
which kick off January 12.
Originally scheduled to be-
gin January 5"', the tie will now
start two days late after the
third team slated for the group,
Dominican Republic, pulled out
last week.
"With the tournament not
being held on the original oates,
that caused us one or two prob-
lems," Bermuda's coach Kyle
Lightbourne said.
"It is a concern that we
won't be at full strength. We
would have liked to have had
most of the guys from Barba-
dos (Group G round) go down
because we're missing four
or five players. They've

played a big part in our suc-
Bermuda will be without
goalkeeper Tim Figureido due to
suspension and defenders
Stanton Lewis and Kentoine
Jennings and midfielder Keith
Jennings. who are carrying inju-
Figureido will be replaced in
the uprights by Nigel Burgess
while Bermuda's defence will
now see Dennis Zuill getting a
chance to impress.
"There's a real opportunity
for Nigel." Lightbourne said
"We'll have to rely on
some of our younger defend-
ers and give some other guys
a chance someone like
Dennis Zuill. We're going to
be short of defenders."
Lightbourne said much
would rest on Bermuda's de-
fence in today's key first leg.
"[It is important] that we
don't give anything away. We
have to keep it tight. It's impor-
tant to get a result in that game
- a draw or a victory,"
Lightbourne noted.

"That's our main goal there.
that we don't give that game
away. We have to be strong and
up for that challenge."
Without any injury wor-
ries, Haiti's coach Luis
Amelio said he was confident
of winning both legs and ad-
vancing to the finals.
"We have had good prepa-
ration and we are confident that
we can get the results to take us
to the Digicel Cup," Amelio
said. "We want to win the two
games and go on."
Much of Haiti's hopes will
rest with strikes Jean Baptiste
Fritzon and Jean Jacques Jamil
who both scored four goals in
the Digicel qualifiers so far.
Both teams will meet at
the Ato Boldon Stadium in
the second leg on Tuesday at
5 pm with the winner, on ag-
gregate, joining hosts T&T,
Martinique and Barbados in
Group A.
Cuba, Guadeloupe,
Guyana and St. Vincent and
the Grenadines comprise the
other group.

'Rubbish' New Zealand suffer heaviest one-day defeat

SUNDAY1CHRONICLE 'Jafua~l 77 2007

SYDNEY, (Reuters) New
Zealand captain Stephen
Fleming described his team's
performance as "rubbish"
after they suffered their
heaviest one-day defeat
against Sri Lanka yesterday.
The Kiwis were thrashed
by 189 runs after collapsing for
just 73 in the fourth one-day
international at Auckland,
allowing Sri Lanka to level their
five-game series at 2-2.
Sri Lanka skittled the New
Zealanders in less than 27 overs
-- their second-lowest total in
limited-overs internationals --
after posting 262 for six in their
own innings.
"It was rubbish, totally
unacceptable," Fleming said in a
televised interview.
"The first half of the game
was normal, the second half was
Chaminda Vaas (3-10) and

fellow seamer Lasith Malinga
(3-14) captured six wickets
between them, while off-spinner
Muttiah Muralitharan polished
off the tail with 2-7.
Had it not been for an
unbeaten 29 by all-rounder
Craig McMillan, New
Zealand might have
threatened their lowest one-
day total of 64, which came
against Pakistan in Sharjah
in 1985-86.
But the margin of defeat
was New Zealand's worst ever,
eclipsing their 174-run loss to
India 10 years ago, in a worrying
sign before they head to
Australia next week for a
triangular series with the world
champions and England.
Opener Brendon McCullum
(17) was the only player apart
from McMillan to make double
figures while three players,
including Fleming, failed to

Barrows win Oasis

chess competition
IT took Rawle Barrow about 25 minutes oi Friday night to
defeat Irshad Mohamad in the finals of the Oasis Cafe Open
Chess competition at the cafe's Carmichael Street location.
The game was by no means a one sided affair and Mohamad
had the upper hand initially, but he moved on the defensive and
allowed Barrows to attack with his rook and queen, which ended
in the trapping of his king.
Along with Oasis Cafe, Mohamad and Errol Tiwari
organised the competition which spanned two days (the first
day December 29th) and included 13 players.
Barrow's only lost to Antonnell Atwell, who in turn was de-
feated by Mohamad in the semi-finals of the competition. The other
semi-finals saw Barrow defeating Craig Moonsammy.
Ulanda Persaud from Queen's College copped the most out-
standing junior player.
The three organizers are working towards resuscitating the sport,
which has been on the decline over the last few years.
In an attempt to spread the game, Mohamad will be hold-
ing classes this Saturday from 14:00h at the Oasis Cafe.

ECB begin review iCc

WITHIN hours of England's
final humiliating defeat in
the Ashes series the ECB has
instigated a review of the rea-

after David Collier, the ECB
chief executive, sent around
a paper outlining the issues.
The vision for the review is
defined as: "To determine how
Team England performances

should be improved in order
that England regain the Ashes in
2009 and win an ICC global one-

England have previously
had a mission statement which
was to make England the best
team in the world by 2007.
Collier said: "The perfor-

mance in the Ashes series has
been a great disappointment and
a number of lessons must be
learned. This review will be
comprehensive and broad rang-
ing with the clear objective of
regaining the Ashes ifn 2009 and
significantly imlprov\in
England's results in onc-da\i l-t

four-year cycle."
The board unanimouslhI
supported the establishment of

now meet formally to agree the
process and composition of the

In addition alter each overseas
tour a report is produced by the

John Carr. the ECB director of En-

SEVEN-time Grand Slain winner Serena Williams says she
has "no doubt" she will be world number one again after a
string of knee and ankle injuries.
The American, who is preparing for the Australian Open, is
confident she will reverse her injury-enforced slide to 95th in the
world rankings.
"There's no doubt about it. It's just a matter of time. I'm
definitely on my way," said the 25-year-old.
Williams has won the Australian Open twice, in 2003 and 2005.
The first-round draw for this year's tournament takes place on
12 January, with the action starting on 15 January.
Williams is preparing for the tournament by competing in the
Hobart International in Tasmania, where her first-round opponent
is Sweden's Sofia Arvidsson.
The Hobart International is one of several events in Aus-
tralia this week which act as warm-ups for the Melbourne
tournament. (BBC Sport)

West Indies coach Bennett
King has been reflecting on
his two years in the position.
The Australia-born King
has been the subject of much
criticism and conjecture since
taking up the post in December
"You listen to it all and you
hear it all, but in the end.
you've got to focus on the
things that you believe in and
focus on areas that need ad-

Friday in a wide-ranging inter-
view when watching the Carib

bados and Trinidad & Tobago at
the North Stars Social & Cul-
tural Club.
"From December 2004,

for them to start coming to
fruition, but at least, the cur-
rent board has sat down and
tried to implement two of

West Indies Cricket Board, but
everyone in the regions, from
governments down to the
people in the street, and
recognize that we've put our-
selves in the position we are in
world cricket."
King believes the emphasis
now should be all about making

regional cricket stronger and
trying to get professional stan-
dards into their play.
"When players come into
international cricket, they
need to be better prepared,"
he said.
"We keep cringing about
the West Indies senior side and
how they are not performing,
even though they are perform-
ing a lot better. Improvement

"If you keep doing what

Leewards take points despite Hinds' century

CAYON, St Kitts, (CMC) Leeward Islands grabbed first in-
nings points over Jamaica despite a century from Wavell
Hinds but the visitors had struck back by the close on the
third day to leave the first round Carib Beer Series encoun-
ter at St Mary's Park interestingly poised Saturday.
Resuming from their overnight 165 for three in pursuit of
Leewards' 396, Jamaica were dismissed for 353, with captain
Hinds surviving two chances to score an even 100.
Jamaica's fast bowlers, however. brought them back into the
contest in the final session, reducing the hosts to 122 for five, a
lead of 165 runs going into the final day Sunday.
Unbeaten on 30 at the start of play, Hinds rode his hiuck en
route to his milestone, as he kept Jamaica in the hunt for pre-
cious first innings points.
He was twice put down by wicketkeeper Jason Williams,

who dropped the West Indies batsman at 57 off pacer Adam
Sanford and at 82, off medium pacer Carl Simon.
Hinds lost his overnight partner David Bernard early in the morn-
ing session when he was lbw for 10 to Sanford. after Jamaica had
added just five to their total.
He found a partner in Tamar Lambert and they added a 143 for
the fifth wicket that put the visitors in sight of first innings lead.
The right-handed Lambert stroked 10 fours and one six. in an
innings spanning 164 minutes and 113 balls.
His dismissal. lbw to Simon with the score on 313, sparked
a collapse which saw Jamaica lose their last six wickets for 40
Hinds followed Lalmbert to the pavilion after he atlenptlcd to
cut last bowler Gavin Tonge and spooned a catch to Shane Jelffers
at point. He batted for 234 minutes, faced 142 balls and struck 10

fours and one six.
Fast bowlers Jermaine Lawson and Daren Powell then
tore through the Leewards top order to leave the hosts tot-
tering at 54 for five, before Runako Morton (44) and Omari
Banks combined in an unbroken stand of 68 to half the de-
Lawson, who has snared two for 30, accounted for openers
Austin Richards Jr (5) and Shane Jeffers (14) to a brilliant catch
by Andre Dwyer at long-leg running back.
Powell. with two *for 27. praised out Steve Liburd for a
23-ball 18 and then bowled Tonito Willett three balls later
for a duck.
West Indies pacer Jerome Taylor had earlier gotten into
the act, comprehensively bowling captain Sylvester Joseph
without scoring.
