By Michel Outridge

RELATIVES of Charles
Roopchand, the 54-year-old
Lusignan resident who was
slain Wednesday by a pack of
hounds in the Ogle Airstrip
Road neighbourhood while on
his way to work, said yester-
day they are still awaiting
word from the Police as to
what course of action will be
taken against the animals
and their owner.
The last the Chronicle heard
was that the dogs, reportedly
some eight to nine in number,
and their owner, a well-known
commercial pilot, are being held
at Force Headquarters here in
the city where they were relo-
cated after being initially de-
tained at the Sparendaam Sta-
tion at Plaisance, which is in the
jurisdiction of where the inci-
dent occurred.
Reports are, however, that

the dogs' owner has since been
charged with manslaughter and
was to have appeared in court
Friday, but efforts yesterday to
confirm either claim proved fu-
tile. Commander of.'C' Divi-
sion, Mr. Leroy Brummel told
the Chronicle Thursday that
should police investigations
prove the man was negligent,
then charges were going to be
laid against him.
As to the fate of the
hounds, said to be a mixed
bag of rottweilers, pit bulls,
German shepherds, and
'rice-eaters', Brummel .said
they were still awaiting word
from the Director of Public
Prosecutions (DPP) on that
score, but had gone ahead in
the interim and tried to lo-
cate a safe-house in which to
place the animals. They had
also approached the Guyana
Society for the Prevention of
Cruelty to Animals (GSPCA)

for advice, he said.
When the matter was raised,
however, with GSPCA Presi-
dent, Mr. Oliver Insanally, he
said that it was not in their
mandate to shelter dogs that
have attacked and killed people;
that that privilege was only ac-
corded animals that were aban-
doned and mistreated by their

pact tomorrow
THE Governments of Brazil and Guyana, in their continu-
ous effort to improve on collaboration in various areas, are
about to sign a cooperation agreement on defence.
Head of the Presidential Secretariat and Cabinet Secretary
Dr. Roger Luncheon made this disclosure Friday during his
weekly post-Cabinet media briefing at the Office of the Presi-
According to the Government Information Agency (GINA),
Dr. Luncheon said the signing will take place tomorrow when
Brazil's Minister of Defence, who is scheduled to pay Guyana
a visit, arrives, and that the agreement is part of a long-standing
and mature relationship between the two governments.
That relationship, he said, is one that has over the de-
cades seen the access of training, and more recently ac-
cess to training on even more favourable grounds, for mem-
bers of the military, "It is in that context that one sees the
proposed cooperation on defence between Guyana and Bra-
Meanwhile, he also announced that the Defence Board has
agreed to several issues at its recent meeting, including the naming
of the Coast Guard main base in Ruimveldt as the Coast Guard
Ship Hinds in honour of the late Col. Harry Basil Hinds for his
dedicated and committed service to Maritime and Coast Guard
The Cabinet Secretary told members of the media that a
visiting team from the Nigerian War College will be in Guyana
in May as guests of the Commander-in-Chief- and the military.
"Practically all of the 19 participants who would be
here are active members and staff of the war college, and
they will be here to continue a familiarity with defence
considerations and national security doctrine in the Car-
ibbean. They w~ere in Trinidad and Tobago and Belize last
year and they are following up with Haiti and Guyana this
year," Dr. Luncheon said.

College, but Corlette, who
elected to respond, assured resi-
dents that he will raise this par-
ticular matter with the school's
Board of Governors and urged
instead that farmers make use of
some of their own lands that are
not in use.
And in response to que-
ries as to what assistance
those farmers who suffered
losses due to flooding might
expect, Minister Persaud re-
iterated that they will be
given plants, seed materials
along with advice from his
extension officers. He also
gave the assurance that the
government will continue to
enforce strict disciplinary
measures to those found
wanting, as they have done in
the past when they had had
negligent koker attendants
He said, too, that the gov-
ernment is toying with the idea
of establishing an agriculture in-
surance scheme, but that the lo-
cal insurance companies are re-
luctant to buy into the plan,
mainly because of the unpre-
dictable weather pattern. Not to
be deterred, however, he said
that the initiative will be fol-
lowed-up at the Regional level.
With respect to the earthen
works being done in the com-
munity by NDIA, under the

Agriculture Support Services
Programme (ASSP), Wordsword
noted that three excavators were
currently being deployed to
complete similar works in
Golden Grove and Victoria,
which are villages also located
on the East Coast.
He explained that as part of
the project, at least 60 per cent
of the work must be completed
to enable the rehabilitation of
pumps and sluices in the Golden
Grove, Nabaclis, and Victoria
The NDIA boss also dis-
closed that the main channels at
Friendship will also be dredged,
but will be done in a different
way, in that the excavated earth
will be moved to another pre-
arranged location.
The government has allo-
cated some $15M to the repair
of dams in the Buxton/Nabaclis
areas to boost agricultural pro-
duction, but Corlette noted that
farmers utilizing areas in the
backlands are obliged to pay
rental which they have not done.
He said efforts will be made to
ensure they do and that the mo-
dalities will be worked out
soon. That money. he said, will
be used to maintain the access
The cleared dams will allow
farmers to access their farms,
and will open-up some 2000
hectares of farmland critical to

the improvement of their liveli-
Minister Persaud assured
the farmers that the clearing
will be slowed when approach-
ing Victoria so as to facilitate
the harvesting of their crops-
He explained that the inten-
tion of the exercise is to get farm-
ers to return to their farmlands,
and that his ministry will be
providing them with plants, seed
materials as well as extension ser_
vices so as to enable a speedy
return to their livelihood
According to him, it will
also restore their economic
viability and minimize the
effects in the rise in food
prices locally which is part of
the Ministry of Agriculture's
newly-launched 'Grow More'

By Tajeram Mohabir

Robert Persaud yesterday an-
nounced that arrangements
will be made to accommodate
Nabaclis farmers who are not
land owners but have been
utilizing the access dam
which was recently cleared.
Minister Persaud gave the
undertaking while speaking to a
group of farmers during a meet-
ing convened at the East Coast
community. He told the group-
ing that the proposed arrange-
ment will be worked out by the
Regional Administration and the
Lands and Surveys Commis-
Accompanying the minister

was purposed to address any

ity (NDIA), were Region Four
Chairman, Mr. Clement
Corlette, and NDIA Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer (Ag), Mr. Lionel

Benedict began the penultimate day of his first U.S. papal

ACCRA (Reuters) IN-
CREASED aid for agriculture
and the abolition of rich-na-
tion subsidies are key to find-
ing a long-term solution to
rising world food prices, the
head of the UN Conference
on Trade and Development
said yesterday.
A doubling of the price of
major cereals on international
markets since mid-2007 has
sharply increased the risk of
hunger and poverty in develop-
mng countries, and has already
sparked food riots in parts of
Asia and Africa.
~UNCTAD boss Supachai
Panitchpakdi said a dispropor-
tionate amount of aid had been
spent on governance initiatives
in the developing world in re-
cent decades while agriculture
had been neglected, leaving
some poor countries which were
once net food exporters reliant
on expensive imports.
'"We will be jumping from

one crisis to another unless the
international community can
address the major issue of a re-
structuring of the allocation of
international aid," he told a
news conference on the eve of
an UNCTAD summit in Ghana.
Panitchpakdi said that be-
tween 2003 and 2005, $1.3 bil-
lion of development aid was
spent on governance initiatives
in the world's poorest countries,
compared with just US$12 mil-
lion on agricultural development,
which he described as "more
than disproportionate".
This decade will be the first
in recorded history in which
more people in the economically
active population of the least
developed nations will seek
work outside the agricultural
sector than within it, exacerbat-
ing the problem, he said.
"People are moving out of
agriculture into urban areas,
most of them cannot find
work. We have less support

Aleong's remarkable gesture
to donate his pension to help
the two children poisoned by
their father has started some-
thing beautiful.
Many inspired by his self-
less act have called 67-year-old
Aleong a humanitarian with a
big heart who had renewed their
faith in the country.
So they, too, have joined in
the effort to assist Sarah, 11,
and Sean Sieuchan, nine, in re-
claiming their lives.
They have pledged to donate
to a fund to be set up for the chil-
dren, hoping to help in their
schooling, to help with clothing,
groceries, and the counselling the
children would surely need.
There was praise also for
Veronica Joseph, the woman
who has opened her home to

the children and their mother,
Atwaria Sieuchan, at Ravine
Sable, Longdenville.
Joseph has been a constant
companion to the children at
hospital, and brought them to
the funeral to say good-bye to
their father on Wednesday.
The children were found at
their home near the sand quar-
ries at Ravine Sable on Sunday
They were fed a meal
cooked by their father, Sharma
Keith Sieuchan, that contained
the pesticide Lanate.
Sieuchan, 40, ingested
enough of the poison to kill
himself. His children fought.
And on Wednesday, hunched
over and in pain from the effects
of the poison within, they came
to the funeral and cried for the
dad they still loved.

ROBERT CORBIN, desperate to overcome the internal
threats to his leadership of the PNCR,
including increasing open calls for him to step down, has
chosen to blackmail Guyana's hosting of the Tenth
CARIFESTA (Caribbean Fjstival of Arts) with threats to
create discord and disorder over the four-month suspen-
soon of the broadcast licence under which CNS Chan-
nel 6 has been operating.
Make no mistake about It, Corbin and CN Sharma,
as politicians sharing a common anti-government
agenda that extends to a passion for reckless abuse
of facilities offered by television stations with which they
are separately identified, are not fighting any battle for
freedom of expression. Their own enlightened support-
ers would be so aware. At the same time, President
Jagdeo should keep the door open for a practical com-
Corbin and Sharma are simply out to politically ex-
ploit this matter, one currently before a High Court Judge
as they dance around Georgetown with slogans and
threats, knowing they are guaranteed of comforting pub-
They were doing so on Friday, aware that the Guyana
Government and the CARICOM Secretariat have finalised
arrangements for the official launch on Wednesday of
CARIFESTA X with a spectacular cultural extravaganza
scheduled for the Cenotaph square with performing
artistes also from Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname.
The Government can, hardly be intimidated into a spoil-
ing of the inauguration event.
Sharma and Corbln also know that a constitutional
case relating to the temporary closure of CNS Channel
6 for acknowledged repeated violations of the letter and
spirit of its operational licence with a chilling criminal
threat is currently before Justice William Ramlal, and
scheduled to be further addressed on Wednesday.
Ahead of both the court hearing and the later sched-
uled cultural extravaganza at the Cenotaph on Wednes-
day, Corbin and colleagues, including recently rehabili-
rated, post-PNCR congress, 'comrade' Hamilton Green,
current Mayor of Georgetown, chose to carry out their anti-
government demonstration on Friday.
The shouted slogans and speeches during that ex-
ercise would have been sufficient to convince any who
may have thought otherwise, that the event was de-
signed and implemented to gain political points and no
objective assessment of the circumstances of the sus-
pension of Channel 6 licence.
The PNCR's Corbin and Sharma championing free-
dom of expression and press freedom? Forget It. Their
mixed bag of offerings on favourite topics like "corrup-
tion", cost of I~ving, discrimination, marginalisation, prob-

Dear Mr. Chand,

I wish to call your attention
to the strike at Rose Hall,
which as you are well aware
started on 'Iesday, 15thApril
2007, with no apparent end in
sight, and continues to this
day, Saturday, 19th April. It
has resulted in a total shut-
down of the estate, caused by
a standstill in harvesting op-
eration. This strike has
spread to Albion and
Blairmont estates, but as of
today, there has been satis-
factory resumption of har-
vesters at Albion. At
Blairmont, the representa-
tives have, this morning, as-
sured the General Manager
that there would be full re-
sumption tomorrow, Sunday,
20th April.
The genesis of the strike at
Rose Hall had to do with their
workers concern about the high
rates for electricity, the rising
food prices and issues pertain-
ing to the processing of claims
and pensions by the National

whih y u ol ccd is o
any relevance to the Corpora-
tion or even industrial in nature.
The workers at Rose Hall have
demonstrated through the
streets of New Amsterdam voic-
ing their concerns on the issues
affecting them.
The strike at Rose Hall has
caused approximately 400
punts of canes to be languish-
ing in the fields for the past 7
days, which when converted
could have yielded almost 215
tonnes of sugar or G$140M in
revenue. These canes have de-
teriorated to such an extent that

I AM tired of seeing Freddie
Kissoon referring to me in
his articles. In his response
to Ravi Dev on 17 April in
Stabroek News, this is what
he wrote:

Anyway, whatever the
reasons for his intense resent-
ment, I would like to ask Mr.
Kissoon to desist from making
references to me in his future
columns. My reason is that I
believe his writing is not con-
structive. More often than not,
it seems to be deliberately try-
ing to aggravate people and
sow conflict in Guyana. He
and Sharma seem to bebedfel-
lows. Whatever may be his
problems, one thing is for sure:

he has become a liability to

ought to take a good look at
himself in the mirror when he
goes about condemning one per-

are more qualified, successful
and honorable than himself.

people like Mr. Kissoon
have indeed made Guyana a
difficult place to live. It
makes constructive use of
my knowledge and experi-
ence difficult in Guyana, and
tolerates all forms of vio-
lence that are inimical to my
nature. Mr. Kissoon can cel-
ebrate this achievement if he
likes; that is the kind of
thing he works for.
Meanwhile, I am very
happy where I am and all I can
say to Guyanese in Guyana is
that I feel sorry for you for hav-
ing to put up with a destructive
person like Mr. Freddie
Again I would urge his
boss to give him a long holi-
day to sort himself out. He
deserves it.


they would have to be discarded
at an additional harvesting ex-
pense. Great costs have been in-
curred in the nurturing of these
canes, only to be discarded as a
result of workers who chose to
use the strike weapon to voice
concerns over matters that have
no relevance to the Corporation.
Neither your Union nor the
workers have given any indica-
tion to management that they
would be proceeding on leave;
thus leaving the estate with 400
punts of burnt cane on its hand.
The act of proceeding on strike,
in this circumstance, could be
considered to be mischievous and
senseless, aimed at causing great
harm to the estate and the Cor-
poration. Since the commence-
ment of this strike, the estate has
been sending out labour lorries at
the appropriate time in the
morning to all the relevant stops
to no avail. This is a very expen-
sive exercise which the estate has
been advised to cease until the
situation is normalized.
I wish to inform you that the
Corporation would be very wary
to burn any additional canes or to
give any instruction to re-start the
factory, which has been closed
since the commencement of the
strike, unless your Union gives an
official notification of the cessa-
tion of the current strike. It's wor-
thy to mention that the factory
workers at Rose Hall have not
s poted oh xsig sw-ke s
commend them for their good
sense of judgment and logic.
The Corporation, there-
fore, awaits your Union's offi-
cial notification that the cur-
rent strike has been called off;
at which time canes would be
burnt for the harvesters, and
transportation would be pro-
vided from home to work.

THE letter by Khushi
Kumar published in the
Friday's edition of the
Kaieteur News raises some
important points. It ques-
tions whether the threat
made on Channel 6 by a
caller and repeated on three
occasions was illegal.
Kumar's argument is that
the call was made at a time
when fear had gripped the
minds of many people and
therefore should be treated
Kumar seems to have more
information than most since he
knows that it is a 71-year-old
woman who made the call. But
the reason for the action as
pointed out by the President
and supported by two other
notable persons in the broad-
cast media (Adam Harris and
Tony Vieira) was the re-broad-
cast of the call.
I am not sure that Kumar
heard the call, but I did. To my
mind it had the potential to in-
cite persons to commit the act,
so even if that person did not

commit the act she could have
caused some one else to act, the
fact that it was repeatedly
shown made it even more vola-

defending freedom of expression, and clearly disinter-
ested in any attempt to show their own understanding of
the dangers in trivialising the terms of a broadcast licence
and, most certainly, to avoid criminal threats dunng a live
broadcast, as in the relevant case that identified Presi-
dent Jagdeo as a potential victim.
In contrast to the bellicose shouting of Corbin,
Sharma and others, the slogans on placards carried by
a few employees of Channel 6 spoke encouragingly with
pleas for reconsideration of the period of suspension.
One such placard, pleaded- "Mr. President please reduce
the penalty"'. Another said, "four months suspension too
While Corbin and Sharma are doing their own politi-
cal thing, President Jagdeo and his advisers would do
well, as we stated earlier, to keep the channels open for
an urgent review of the suspension period with the like-
linood of a significant reduction.
Such a review could be associated with a written apol-
ogy by CNS Channel 6 for the offence committed and firm
assurance to honour the letter and spirit of its broadcast
licence. A spirit of compromise can do no harm.

in swing, the hall was crowded
with Guyanese of every de-

general workers. Even the Bra-
zilian Ambassador to Barbados
was present.
It was like Guyana of old,
with East Indians, Africans,
Chinese, Portuguese, Mixed
races and one solitary

president was so convincing

that the meeting ended with a

Car nwe do it ? I.~l

Ye Swe can'.

THE RIGHT TO press free-
dom and the wider freedom of
expression is best protected
by an obligation on the part
of journalists and media en-
terprises to appreciate how
indivisible are freedom and
Over the long years of my
involvement in Caribbean jour-
nalism and working relations
with regional media enterprises,
I have been increasingly
sensitised to the twin pillars of
freedom and responsibility and
how well the concept serves the
interest of the media profession,
media enterprises and the pub-
lic we seek to serve. I am grate-
ful for the education.
I have also been exposed to
the irresponsible behaviour of
some media practitioners and
media houses that often betray
a penchant for irresponsible
journalism that shows contempt
for the concept of 'freedom
with responsibility'.
They are among those quick
to passionately shout "denial of
press freedom", or "danger to
freedom of expression", when
their individual/collective abuses
are challenged and threats of
sanctions are raised, or enforced.

Why am I engaging in such
observations at this time? It re-
lates, primarily, to two separate
media developments of current
interest and debates-one in Ja-
maica, the other in Guyana.
Both are examples of what
can happen when owners/op-
erators violate the letter and
spirit of a broadcast licence
to the serious hurt of private/
public individuals in facilitat-
ing reckless abuse of free-
dom of expression by failure
to ensure application of rel-
evant regulatory mecha-

The first case involved the
Broadcasting Commission of
Jamaica (BCJ) and Universal
Media Company (UMC), op-
erator of "NewsTalk 93FM"
jointly owned by the Univer-
sity of the West Indies (Mona
Campus) as majority share-
holder, and Breakfast Club
Limited. Managing Director of
the radio station is Anthony
Abrahams. '
As broadcast licensee,
UMC was accused by the BCJ
of having committed "an ex-
tremely grave breach" of

Jamaica's 'Television and Sound
Broadcasting Regulations as well
as the "Children's Code for
Programming" in the transmis-
sion of its "NewsTalk" broad-
cast on January 2 last.
The highly reputable
BCJ, currently headed by Dr
Hopetun Dunn, a media and
communication specialist, con-
ducted an investigation into the
offensive "News Talk"
programme. The probe revealed
that the programme hosted by
Dr Kingsley Stewart, had in-
dulged in an "uninterrupted
monologue" lasting in excess of
half an hour, laced with "highly
derogatory, shameful, shocking
and improper language" against
a female administration staff
member of the UWI.
While in the process of con-
sidering recommended sanction,
the UMC's "NewsTalk" call-in
programme, again with Stewart as
host, further complicated the
problem of violations of its broad-
cast license, by permitting the
transmission of "racial slurs and
derogatory remarks about persons
oflIndian descent tin Jamaica)..."
The regulations prohibit
transmission of "any statement
or comment upon race, colour,

creed, religion or sc1 of
any person which is abusive or
derogatory. It also violated the
'Children's Code for Program-
ming' with the use of prohibited
Significantly, as noted by
Chairman Dunn, it was only af-
ter the Commission had made
recommendations for suspen-
sion of the UNIC's licence, un-
less appropriate disciplinary ac-
tion and remedial measures, in-
cluding internal relevant internal
controls, were pursued, that
some efforts were made for
compliance. There are provi-
sions for suspension of a li-
cence for up to three months, if
However, following the
intervention by Minister of
Information, Olivia 'Babsy'
Grange, the path to recom-
mended suspension of licence
was avoided, based on an un-
derstanding that disciplinary
action, remedial measures
and effective management
oversight will be undertaken.
For a start, Dr Stewart was
not hosting the "NewsTalk"
call-in programme- at the
time of writing.

While Jamaicans were fo-
cused on the BCJ's case against
UMC's violations of its broad-
cast licence, controversies were
spreading over the decision last
-week by Guyana's President
Bharrat Jagdeo (who holds re-
sponsibility for information and
communication), to suspend for
four months the operational
licence of the privately-owned
television station, "CNS Chan-
nel 6".
The core of the dispute was
that the station, owned and op-
erated by Chandra Narine
Sharma, a businessman, opposi-

why his broadcast licence
should not be suspended.
When he failed to show up
for the meeting with Luncheon,
another was arranged with
President Jagdeo. By then
Sharma had moved with his
lawyers to the court to prevent
the contemplated suspension
As Head of Government
and holding responsibility for
information and communication,
Jagdeo felt there was really no
remorse by CNS 6 for the trans-
gression that had taken place
with the threat to commit a
criminal act. Therefore, he sus-
pended the station's licence for
four months.
There is no doubt about the
recklessness on the part of CNS
6 and the politics being played
out in a country that stands in
great need for appreciation of
the concept of media freedom
with responsibility.
Yet, the four-
month suspension seems very
harsh--even for a licensee like
Sharma, noted for unpredictable
behaviour. It deserves to be re-
visited. The suspension case
has reached the High Court and
the Attorney General,
Doodnauth Singh, is scheduled
to make a written submission to
the presiding judge by Wednes-
Whatever the outcome of
the CNS 6 suspension
issue, it is evident that, as in
the case involving "NewsTalk
93FM" in Jamaica, there are
lessons to be learnt by the
broadcast media and all advo-
cates of freedom of expres-
sion to have a regulated en-
vironment that respects the
necessity to blend freedom
with responsibility.

OVER the past few weeks, we
have been inundated with
news of rising food prices
around the Globe. This is a
phenomenon that has grave
social and economic implica-
tions for every nation, but
particularly, developing na-
tions like Guyana. Food scar-
city and rising food prices are
not necessarily recent con-
cerns. The signs of this cri-
sis have been with us for a
very long time; it is just that
we were not paying attention.
In the rest of the world,
there is growing anxiety or
should we say terror about
having enough food to eat.
Food riots have occurred in
Egypt, Ethiopia, and Haiti and,
among other countries, and two
of West Africa's more demo-
cratic lands, Cameroon and
Senegal. World Bank President
Robert Zoellick warned that ris-
ing food prices place 33 coun-

tries, including the Philippines
and Indonesia, at risk of up-
Zoellick, the U.N. World
Food Programme and U.N. Sec-
retary-General Ban Ki-Moon
have appealed for US$500 mil-
lion in emergency aid from rich
countries by May 1. That's just
to avoid cutting aid to some of
the most desperate fireas. It's
encouraging that the Bush ad-
ministration has ordered release
of an extra US$200 million in
food aid.
Guyana exported 269,000
tonnes (244,000 metric tonnes)
of rice last year, a third of it to
Jamaica and most of the rest to
the European Union. Local con-
sumption accounts for about
360,000 tonnes (327,000 metric
tonnes) a year-
This level of export un-
doubtedly has had severe impact
on the availability of this com-
modity on the local market. As

is expected with the global scar-
city of rice, greater demand is
placed on the rice producing ca-
pacity of countries like Guyana,
which inevitably affects the
supply and price in the local
The call therefore made
by the Honourable Minister
of Agriculture Robert
Persaud, to grow more food,
comes at a very critical time.
The challenge however is,

tion politician and host of aregu-
lar "Voice of the People" call-in
programme, had transmitted a
broadcast on February 21 that
contained criminal incitement,
specifically against President
Jagdeo. Worse, it was th jce re-
peated without any editing of
the offensive remarks, in par-
ticular a threat to "kill Jagdeo".
The offensive broadcast by
CNS Channel 6--ne oif some
dozen television stations oper-
ating in an unregulated, wild-
west atmosphere in Guyana-
in direct contrast to what ob-
tains in Jamaica--had touched a
very raw nerve with one female
caller making the threat: "I am
going to kill (President) Jagdeo
if anything is going to happen
to my family..."
That programme was first
broadcast at a time of wide-
spread tension and fear against
the backdrop of the massacres
at Lusignan and Bartica that
sent President Jagdeo engaging
in public meetings with appeals
for peace and assurances of firm
actions against armed criminals.
Having offered an apology
for the offensive threat to "kill",
following an intervention by the
Advisory Committee on Broad-
casting (ACB)--which has nei-
ther the stature nor power of a
regulated body like the Broad-
casting Commission of Ja-
maica-Sharma's station was to
repeat, unedited, the controver-
sial programme--THRICE,
only to offer some clumsy ex-
cuses, including blaming staffers
for errors made.
In the circumstances, and
given the gravity of the threat
to "kill" the President, Sharma
was invited, first by Head of
the Presidential Secretariat, Dr
Roger Luncheon, to show cause

who is really listening? The impact of industrialization on communities like ours has seen
a sad exodus of many of our people, and more significantly our young people, away from the
vocation of cultivating of the land. Farming is not seen and celebrated as an honourable voca-
tion anymore. And this is extremely fatal to this economy.
If there was ever a time for Guyanese to return to the land it is now. If there is ever a time to put
down the pen and take up a hoe, it is now. I am not suggesting that the roles of clerical and white
collared professions are no longer vital. What I am recommending is that, not just for the food security
of our beloved Guyana, but also to rise to the challenge and seize this moment to prove again to the
world that we have the capacity to feed not just the Caribbean but the world.
We have an abundance of land and water, and lots of youth and opportunities. Putting those four
components together, we can become the solution to a globally escalating crisis. Government is com-
mitted, if I may take the liberty of saying so, to creating the environment to facilitate substantial agri-
cultural initiatives around the country.
But it begins with us, firstly understanding the magnitude of the crisis facing our planet. Food is
short, and it will get worse, Guyana! Now is the time to act. Now is time to get involved. Get back to
the land. Begin to cultivate. Become self sufficient.
One very important consideration that should be addressed is the possibility of introducing the
concept of a daylight saving time as is currently enforced in Suriname. This measure provides for the
work force to begin the working day earlier; lets say seven am, and ending earlier, about three pm, thus
affording them the opportunity of at least four hours of daylight after work to engage in some degree
of farming activities.
Opportunities of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity. This is
Guyana's opportunity to become the bread basket of the region again. Can we do it?


CAP (19:07) -



IN 1992 when the PPP/C
formed the Government,
there was no national policy
on housing. The 1976 PNC
Administration's slogan
'Feed, Clothe and House the
Nation' had minimum impact
on national housing needs.
And the PNC regime in 1983
pulled out the housing port-
folio of the Ministry of Works
and Housing and placed it in
the overloaded Ministry of
Health and Public Welfare.
A National Housing Plan
was drafted in 1986, but it was
not operationalized. And the
Ministry of Housing was dis-
banded in 1990, and its func-
tions transferred over to the
Central Housing & Planning Au-

thority (CH&PA). In short, no
national policy on housing ex-
isted in 1992, suggesting mini-
mum political commitment to
the housing sector.
The PPP/C Administration
formulated a national housing
policy in 1998, and created the
Ministry of Housing and Water.
This Ministry's mandate is to
"formulate policies in the Hu-
man Settlements and Water Sec-
tors and to monitor the Imple-
mentation of Plans, Programmes
and Projects designed to satisfy
the Housing and Water needs of
the population."
Land distribution for shelter
and settlement and house lot al-
location are the responsibility
of CH&PA which is statutorily

mandated "to make provision
with respect to the housing of
persons of the Working Class
and purposes connected there-
with" (Housing Act Ch 30:20).
The CH&PA has representa-
tives from the six municipalities,
the Guyana Lands and Surveys
Commission (GLSC), the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency
(EPA), the Central Board of
Health, the Private Sector, and
the main Opposition Party.
The PPP/C Government
implemented several land re-
forms that produced significant
benefits. One, the GLSC, with
a diversified governing Board of
Directors, is an autonomous
Commission and is no longer a
department of the Ministry of

Agriculture. It has responsibil-
ity for public land distribution,
an important component of na-
tion building. Two, tenure of
state land leases rises from 25
to 50 years, enabling lessees to
access bank loans and to convert
to freeholds of up to 15 acres
of land that had a land use for
25 years. Three, there is a na-
tional tenure regularization
programme for providing titles
for occupants of state lands.
Four, a public lands register is
now in place.
Equity and transparency in
the land distribution process,
enabling all Guyanese to become
beneficiaries, are important prin-
ciples of good governance. We
now examine the data on house
lot allocations to determine the
implementation status of these

Indians and Others received
53% and Africans 47% of
house lots in the ten (10) Re-
gions between 1993 and 2002.
Indians and Others were the
beneficiaries of the largest pro-
portion of house lots in Regions
2, 5 and 6 while Africans found
their largest allocations in Re-
gions 3, 4, and 10. In fact in Re-
gionl10, Africans received almost
all the house lots allocated. The
Amerindian areas have benefit-
ted from a small but growing
number of house lots.
Over 70,000 house lots
were distributed between
1992 and 2002. The major
ethnic groups are recipients
of fair proportions on the ba-
sis of their respective demo-
graphics, as evidenced by the
Housing statistics. 91 hous-
ing schemes and 65 of the

120 squatter settlements re-
ceived regularization status
at the end of 2001. Also, there
is a strategic plan to issue
about 7,000 land titles per
year. In March 2002, the Min-
ister presented a White Paper
in Parliament, addressing na-
tional land distribution policy
for all Guyanese.

GUYANA has had its share of
tragedies involving children,
the latest which occurred
when brazen gunmen in two
separate massacres on
Bartica and Lusignan merci-
lessly rained bullets on the
bodies of young children,
even as some of them were in
the depths of sleep.
It's a tragedy that Guyana
- nor the Caribbean-will eas-
ily forget and should not forget.
In Jamaica, it's too com-
monplace to hear of children be-
ing killed alongside their entire
families; killed by bullets or
hacked to death.
In Trimidad and Tobago, we
have our share of tragedies in-
volving young children and last
week we were once again jolted
into horror when a father tried
to murder his two children be-
fore taking his own life.
What madness got into 40-
year truck driver Sharma Keith
Sieuchan that caused him to
conjure up his maniacal plan to
kill his children with Lanate, a
powerful weedicide, which he
mixed in their Sunday lunch of
dumplings and meat?
The insane act was commit-
ted after the police served a re-
straining order on him, obtained
by his wife, after constant beat-
ings, particularly after he used
Thankfully, his children
Sean and Sarah survived the
poison but no one as yet knows
what psychological impact this
attempted murder by their fa-
ther will have on them for the
rest of their lives.
whatever the reason for
Sieuchan's insane act of trying
to kill his two offspring has
once again brought to the fore
the need for urgent action to
protect our children.
So it was welcoming news
that the Council for Human and
Social Development
(COHSOD), at its Twelfth Spe-
cial Meeting last month in
Georgetown, focused their at-
tention on the state of children,

under the theme, "Building a
Region Fit for Children."
The Georgetown Declara-
tion spoke about ensuring the
right of every Caribbean child to
survival, development, protec-
tion, dignity and participation
within the Community.
Those are great ideals that
must now be reflected in action
by every country within the
Nils Kastberg, Regional Di-
rector, UNICEF, also addressing
the meeting, pointed to the un-
acceptable levels of violence af-
flicting children and adolescents
and called for careful analysis of
the goals set by the Commu-
nity, as well as the extent to
which it is committed to achiev-

"This is a wise country, a
country that knows when a
person is tired and has
turned vicious, when it is
tune to turn over a new leaf."
That was the upbeat assess-
ment of Walter Veltroni, leader
of the centre-left Democratic
Party, just before Italy's na-
tional election last weekend. So
what did the wise Italians do?
They elected Veltroni's adver-
sary, billionaire buffoon Silvio
Berlusconi, to a third term as
prime minister.
TO elect Berlusconi once,
as Oscar Wilde might have put
it, may be regarded as a
nusfortune. To elect him twice
looks like carelessness. But to
elect him THREE TIMES is
beyond a joke, for he is the most
transparent fraud to have held
high public office in a major
European country since the
Second World War. He even
makes the late Boris Yeltsin
look serious and competent by
What can the Italians have
been thinking? They were, I
suspect, thinking that the situ-
ation is so bad that only a self-
proclaimed miracle-worker like
Berlusconi might have the magic
to fix it. He managed to turn
himself into the second-richest
man in the country; maybe he
can do it for the rest of us, too.
And if the magic doesn't work,
well, at least he's entertaining.
BerTusconi truly is enter-
taining, in a crude sort of way.
He is a compulsive clown, once
making the sign of a cuckold's
horns behind the head of a fel-

low dignitary in a group photo
of national leaders. He
rubbishes foreign cooking ("The
Finns don't even know what
prosciutto is"). He makes pre-
posterous promises, like a
month without taxes ("We prob-
ably wouldn't be able to do it
because it would cost too much,
but as you can see we don't lack
imagination in solving prob-
lems"). He claims his Latin is
good enough to have lunch with
Julius Caesar.
The jokes are deliber-
ately outrageous, and some-
times they are funny: "I'm
sorry for having said Com-
munists eat babies. But if you
want, I can organise a confer-
ence in which I will prove
Communists have really
eaten babies." When all the
other Italian politicians were
busily eating buffalo-milk
mozzarella cheese in public
to prove that it hadn't been
contaminated by the garbage
crisis in Naples, Berlusconi
went to the city, took one
nibble, and started writhing
in mock agony.
At other times, however,
when the topic is women or
gays or immigrants, the jokes
are brutally cruel: "An AIDS
patient asks his doctor if the
sand treatment prescribed for
him will do any good. No, says
the doctor, but you will get used
to living under the earth." It's
hard to imagine any other main-
stream Western leader having a
future in politics after saying
something like that, but many
Italians just think "Good old

One wouldn't dwell so
much on the clown-like
behaviour if it was just the
cover for a serious political
programme, but there is none in
sight. Having made a first
fortune in real estate and a sec-
ond in the media (he owns
Italy's three big commercial TV
channels), he got into politics in
the early 1990s mainly as a
way of evading the bribery and
corruption charges that were
threatening to bring him down-
So far, there have been eleven
prosecutions brought against
him, and both of his closest
business associates have been
Much of the legislative
effort during his previous two
terms as prime minister was
devoted to re-writing the laws
to help Berlusconi escape
conviction: changing the stat-
ute of limitations, for ex-
ample, so that the charges
against him suddenly ex.
pired. For all his promises to
bring a successful business
tycoon's methods to the task
of fixing Italy's ailing
economy, he made few sig-
nificant changes, and the slow
decay of the Italian state and
economy continued.
By now it is getting very
serious. The national airline,
Alitalia, is about to collapse,
and Italians were recently
shocked by the news that Spain
now has a bigger economy de-
spite having 15 million ~fewer
people than Italy. They were
even more startled to learn-that

the average income in Greece is
now higher than in Italy. It is a
very long time since the Italian
economic miracle of the 1950s
and '60s.
So why did Italians give this
71-year-old charlatan a comfort-
able majority in both houses of
parliament in this election, es-
pecially when the worst of the
decline happened during his
previous time in office? Perhaps
the best answer lies in some-
thing written recently by politi-
cal scientist and opinion poller
Ilvo Diamanti: "Italian society
has been hit by a real 'collapse
of the future'. Almost two out
of three Italians believe that in
the near future the young will
have a worse social and eco-
nonuc position than their par-
This is despair. People in

Once again, it gives me great pleasult to send a
message to commemorate Vaccination Week in the
Americas. This is the sixth year that the region of
the Americas, including Guyana will be observing
Vaccination Week in the Americas from April 19 -
26. While in general, the vaccination coverage in
the countries in this hemisphere was good, it was
recognized that there were pockets of children
with much lower vaccination coverage than the
national averages due mainly to the fact that they
live in remote hard to smach areas as well as
border communities. This reality, coupled with an
outbreak of measles in Columbia and Venezuela in
2002, prompted the Ministers of Health of the
Andean region to successfully advocate for a
period dedicated to focusing on increasing the
immunization coverage through intensified efforts.

Consequently, Immunization Week in the Americas
was born and today it has the support and
participation of every PAHO member country in the
region of the Americas and has since been adopted
by some European countries as well. Trhe vision of
PAHO/WHO is to have a week devoted to increasing
awareness and coverage of immunization become a
global endeavor. Dr. Margaret Chan, the Director-
General of WHO, in her remarks to commemorate
the event this year noted, "The objective of
Vaccination Week is to promote equity and access to
vaccination," and commended the American and
European initiatives, saying they are "helpful to the
countries in building their own vaccination
programs and reaching out to people in need."

The success of this initiative in scaling up
vaccination coverage and the willingness of

hpTii a wopn og.he PAHO/WHO Guyana Country Office has been
living up to its technical cooperation responsibilities
for public health by collaborating with other UN
agencies such as UNICEF to support the Ministry of
Health in organizing and carrying out national
activities during Vaccination Week in the Americas.
Such activities include, but are not limited to
planning g, resource mo bilization, social
communication campaigns, procurement of
vaccines and supplies, and evaluation ofactivities.

In keeping with the emphasis on reaching border
communities, this year Guyana is partnering with
neighboring countries Brazil and Venezuela to
launch Vaccination Week in the Americas and to
address vaccination deficits in those border
locations shared by the three countries. Similar
activities will be taking place in other countries that
share common borders such as: Nicaragua and
Costa Rica; the United States and Mexico; Mexico
and Guatemala; Honduras and Nicaragua; and
Colombia, Brazil and Peru.

As we observe Vaccination Week of the Americas
2008, I urge and entreat all concerned: national
health authorities, parents, teachers, family
members, health camepmoviders, community leaders
and individuals in general to use the opportunity to
gain as much information as possible about the
importance of vaccination and to do whatever lies in
their power to ensure that all children are fully
immunized. Please remember that vaccination is
not only "An Act of Love" but it can be a matter of
life and death. Let us work together to protect our
children and adults where necessary from vaccine
preventable diseases.

countries to colli~borate in this effort, prompted the
Director of PAHO, Dr. Mirta Roses Periago to say:
'Vaccination Week in the Americas, is an example
and reminder of tite best of Pan Americanism -
consolidating a true participatory culture for
prevention throughout the Americas'. The
extraordinary successes realized since the
commencement of this initiative, could no doubt be
attributed to the fact that disease knows no borders
and hence the need for countries to work together to
f'md solutions to minimize communicable disease
outbreaks, including the diseases that can be
prevented by vaccine. The Pan American Hiealth
Organization is pleased to have played a part in the
progress made since 2002 when Vaccination Week in
the Americas was Iintroduced.
Since its launch~ six years ago, this initiative has
delivered vaccines to more than 195 million people
in 45 countries and'territories. Despite its growth,
the initiative has remained focused on the original
goal of reaching the most vulnerable and hard-to-
reach communities, indigenous groups, people
living in border areas, and geographically isolated
communities, which are often left behind during
national immunizatibn-campaig~ns.
This year ~a record 62 million children,
adults and elderly people are expected to receive free
vaccines againstle~ading infectious diseases as part
of the sixth annual Vaccination Week in the
Americas. Tens of thousands of health workers and
volunteers are slated .to participate in this year's
initiative, which covers144 countries and territories
throughout the Amaericas. This effort is expected to
prevent thousanld@i oif deaths and illnesses from
diseases such las smeasles, rubella, polio, tetanus,
diphtheria, yellow fdver, influenza, rotavirus,




Guyana joins our sisters and brothers throughout the
Americas to observe Vaccination Week of the Americas.
This week in Apnil has become an important part of the
public health calendar in Guyana and the Americas. As
we observe Vaccination Week 2008, we join our
colleagues in Brazil and Venezuela to have several joint
observances, as part of Guyana's efforts to play a pivotal
role in establishing the goal of every relevant vaccine
for every child an achievable goal in the Americas.

Immunization ranks as one of the most important public
health initiative in history. Immunization is cost-effective
and is what shoppers would call a best-buy. It has saved
more lives and prevented more disability than any other
public health initiative. The country that neglects
immunization is the country that is bound to fail its
children and its people. Guyana will not fail our people by
neglecting the immnization program. Indeed, our history
is that we have consistently strife to strengthen the
immunization program, particularly in the'last decade.

Guyana has consistently stated its position: we will never
allow the need for austerity to affect our commitment to
the immunization program and as we observe Vaccination
Week 2008, it is another opportunity to reiterate this
position. Vaccines save lives and prevent certain forms of
disability. It is, therefore, incumbent on us to ensure that
every child is vaccinated against any vaccine-preventable
disease. Whiles Govermunent has a major responsibility,
we each must accept responsibility. I once again appeal to
every mother and father, grandparent and all civic leaders
and faith-based leaders to make it a civic duty to do
whatever is necessary to ensure that no child in our
families or communities is without vaccines.

Some would say that the successes in the Americas should

developing countries have built capacity for the
quality production of vaccines. Guyana is certain that
Brazil Cuba and India have built capacity for the
production of vaccines and these countries can add
significantly to the global capacity, making
accessibility for the poor easier. Whiles these
countries have succeeded in claiming a part of the
market, the production capacity in these countries
could allow a tremendous easing of the present
limitationinaccessibility ofcertainvaccines.

Access, availability and coverage for vaccines in our
immunization program must notbe one of the factors
that contribute to the gap between rich and poor
countries, between the north and the south and
between countries. Vaccines must be seen as a global
good. A child born in Africa or Asia or the Caribbean
or in South or Central America has the same right to
vaccines as a child in North America or Europe. There
can be no dispute about this. If every child counts,
then I cannot fathom such a dispute.

But Guyana cannot find also find any excuse why a
child born in Region 1 should have less of a chance to
become vaccinated against diseases than child born
in Georgetown. Such an inequity between children
born in the hinterland and the coast does exist. The
Government has invested significant sums of money
to ameliorate this inequity, but greater efforts are
needed to strengthen health systems ,so that an
equitable status is achieved.

The New Global Human Order, a UN mandate,
demands no less. Guyana must not fail in our
endeavor for every child to be loved and protected.
Let us vaccinate every child.

permit us to use Vaccination Wjeek as a time for celebration.
For me, as long as a child is still without vaccination, we
cannot celebrate. W~e must take pride in the fact that the
overwhelming number~of our children is vaccinated against
killer diseases:- Buit it is equally true that there are a small
number of our children who are missed. These children must
become our conscience. Find them and vaccinate them.
Only when each child is vaccinated do we have the right to

As we observe Vaccination Week 2008, Guyana has kept its
promise from hist year~of introducing new vaccines that are
now available. WE have already introduced the
pnemococcus vaccine for some children. We must now
consolidate this effort to ensure that access to
pneumococcus- vaccine becomes universal. We are
advanced in preparation for the introduction of the rotavirus
vaccine. Similaikly, the research and feasibility studies for
the introduction of HPV vaccines are being completed.
These efforts must be accelerated for thie earliest
introduction of these vaccines.

I would like to take the opportunity again to highlight the
production capacity for vaccines. In the light of a number of
yellow-fever outbreaks in the Americas, availability of
yellow fever vaccine became a major constraint. There is
presently a shortage on-the world market for this vaccine.
The yellow-fever vaccine situation must remind us that
accessibility to vaccines, especially for the global poor, is
constraint by the rigidity of regulations and other
restrictions surrounding the manufacturing of vaccines. The
mules favor manufacturing in developed countries. Thle rules
actively restrict participation of developing countries in the
manufacturing and marketing of vaccines.
Guyana will never support easing quality measures for the
production of vaccines. But we also believe that some

areas and resulted in reduction of inequities in
vaccination. Among the 1 5 million children
under five years old who were~accinated during
Vaccination Week in the Americas lat year, over 3
mimlon had not received any doses of
DTP/lPentavalent previously. Approximately 1.S
million women of childbearing age received their
first doses of Td in municipalities at high risk for
neonatal tetanus;

Active Surveillance is maintained for poliomyelitis,
measles, mumps, and rubella, tetanus including neonatal
and adult, diphtheria, whooping cough (pertussis),
tuberculosis and yellow fever,
iTowards, this end, there has been significant
achievement in the EPI programme in Guyana. Special
thanks to our hard working staff.
. Last reported case of whooping cough in 2002,
. Since 1962, Guyana has maintained a polio free status.
. Since 1991, no reported case of Measles.
. Last case of yellow fever in 1968.
During this week, there will be a number of activities in
the different regions to raise the awareness on the
general public on vaccination -(see attached list). We are
targeting vulnerable low coverage areas in Region 1, 7
,8 and 9. This year there will be joint border activity
with Guyana, Brazil and Venezuela.
We would like to encourage all adults and the general
.public to ensure that you are appropriately vaccinati~d by
checking with the nearest health centre for vaccinations.

In Guyana, the general focus w ill be to raise the level of
awareness for the general population on the
importance of\accination.
Guyana started in 1970's to vaccinate against 6 diseases
namely measles, tetanus, whooping cough, polio,
diphtheria. tuberculosis and now in 2005 we have an
additional 5 more antigens against the follow ing diseases,
yellow fever, hepatitis B,' mumps, heamophilus .influenza
and rubella that we are vaccinating on. There have been
s~ignificant progresses towaHrds this end in protecting our
public from \necine preventable diseases.

6 June 7, 2007, Guyana was bestowed yet another world honour for excellence in its vaccination
-ogramme, this time as it relates to the financing of the programme by the government. Minister of
health, Dr. Leslie Ramsamrmy and Director of Maternal and Child Health at the Ministry of Health, Dr.
nice Woolford, accepted an award from the Global Alliance for Vaccination and.T Immunisation (GAVI)
recognition of outstanding n ation al com mitment to co-fin ancing of vaccines. The awa rd was presented
SDr. Julian Lob-Levyt on beh alf of GAVI at the World Health A ssem bly held in Geneva earlier th is year.
however, Minister Ramsammy was unable to attend that meeting and the PAHIO Representative in
uyana, Dr.KIathleen Israel brought the Award to Guyana.
eligible countries under the GAVI programme are required to co-finance the immunization programme
their country and to develop a financial sustainability plan. However, Guyana was able to put forward
?ances for the entire programme one year in advance, Dr.Israel said, at the presentation ceremony at the
egency Suites, Hadfield Street. "GAV was so impressed that it offered two awards to Guyan a one to the
ministry of Finance for allocating the money and the other to the Ministry of Health for its advocacy role
ad com mitmen t," she said. Senior Plan nin g Officer at the Ministry of Finance, Ms. Del ma Nedd collected
ie awa rd on beh alf of that Ministry.

SVAT Policy -Sanitary Napnkin Dniager

The Guyana Revenue Authority continues to educate the general public on various aspects ofVAT
Sand seeks to address issues concerning sanitary napkins and diapers.

SSchedule I, Paragraph 2 (yy) of the VAT Act, zero rates a supply of sanitary napkins. Therefore,
.Icustomers who purchase sanitary napkins including panty liners will not pay VAT regardless of the
Brand. However, customers will have to pay VAT on tampons which attract VAT at: the standard rate
i:of sixteen percent.

Further, paragraph 2A (v) zero rates a supply of diapers. Thus, all diapers including cloth diapers and
pampers for babies and adults will attract VAT at the rate of zero percent; accordingly, consumers of
these products will notpay VAT when purchases are made.

Registered businesses may file for a full refund of input tax credits on a monthly basis if the ztro
rated items account for at least fifty percent ofthe amount ofthe taxable supplies,

lMoreover, registered businesses which are involved in the sale of mixed supplies, that is, exempt
supplies and standard rated aird/or zero rated supplies may file a claim every month to the Guyana
Revenue Authority for a refund of the excess credits attributable to the zer~o-rated supplies only.

On the other hand, claims for refused relating to the standard rated supplies must be carried forward
for six consecutive months before an application is filed.

Please note that Refund claims in the approved format must be filed in addition to the VAT return. The
application form for refunds can be uplifted at the VAT Department.

erage (22.9 per 100,000 compared to 10.7 per 100,000), the report went on to say that in-
volvement of young people in crime and violence is a significant problem in the Caribbean.
Violence and the fear to become a victim are permanent features of the lives of many Caribbean
The reports indicate that children are exposed to very high levels of violence in their community.
Some 47% of children in Guyana knew someone who had been killed, 60% of 9-17 year old children in
Jamaica reported that a family member had been a victim of violence, and 37% had a family member
who had been killed.
In Jamaica, with its one million children, brutal violence against children increased, with
119 children being killed in 2004 alone, representing 8% of all homicides. Of those killed,
86% were boys.
According to police reports, 430 children were shot and injured.
All countries in the Caribbean have adopted the Convention on the Rights of The Child, the first
legally binding universal code on the rights of children, and have accepted an obligation to take all
appropriate legislative, administrative, social and educational measures to protect the child from all
forms of violence.
Yet, not all countries are moving with urgent haste to put legislation in place for the protection and
advancement of children.
Take the case of Trinidad and Tobago where politics is holding up several pieces of important
legislation pertaining to children, while the two dominant political parties point accusatory fingers at
each other.
What does it also say about a former Social Development Minister whose job it is to
protect children from continuing abuse to express surprise over incest and abuse of chil-
dren in his constituency.
Maybe, that's why we have a new Social Development minister in the current government, whom
we expect will show more concern and sensitivity to the plight of children and have his finger on the
pulse of their situation.
,A goo dulac no str sa h e srie dhr he .will see the alarming increase in reports oi
The new Social Development minister, Dr. Amery Brown, must also release~a report to the pun ;
on the failure of the government's social system to protect four -year-old Amy Anamunthodo w\ !I0

For reason unknown, Amy, who suffered constant beating, including having one of her arms br-o-
ken, and a victim of sexual abuse, fell through the cracks of the social services despite her repeated

Brathwaite spurs Windies

--W10 With-~7aSiy century

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) The West Indies had a
successful start to the knockout stage CLICO World Un-
der-15 International Cricket Championship when they de-
feated Malaysia by 146 runs at Kensington Oval yester-
Batting first after winning the toss, the Windies rattled up
240 for six off 50 overs and then limited the Asians to just 94
all out off 35.3 overs.
Kraigg Brathwaite, who won the Player-of-the-Match
award, was the mainstay of the West Indies batting with a
classy century.
The steady opening batsman made 122 not out to guide
the West Indies to what turned out to be a challenging total.
Tall and upright, he batted patiently, choosing to stroke the
ball along the ground rather than take the aerial route.
He faced the first ball of the innings and carried his
bat to ensure that the West Indies innings never went into
Brathwaite had an opening stand of 136 with left-hander
John Campbell, who cracked a brilliant 61, which included two
big sixes over square leg in the early stages of the innings to set
the tone.
He also creamed six fours, most of them down the ground.
After this run-a-ball stand, the innings went into de-
cline, but close to the end, left-hander Kyle Mayers opened
his shoulders to plunder a massive six over wide mid-
wicket as he made 17 off 15 balls.
At the bottom of the innings, captain Stephen Katwaroo
nudged a number of clever singles in 11 not out as he helped
Brathwaite add an unbroken 37 for the seventh wicket.
Overall, Brathwaite faced l44 balls and hit nine boundaries.
Watched by his father in a fair-sized crowd, Brathwaite
brought up his century in the 46th over when he worked a
single into the off-side.
The ton came off 131 balls with seven fours and after that
he accelerated to set Malaysia a target of close to five runs per
When the West Indies took to the field, their spinners came
to the fore and accounted for nine wickets the other wicket
went by the run-out route.
Zubair Ashraf, the Malaysian opener standing at just
4ft 10ins, batted bravely for 23 off 55 balls, while Keithan
Goonasagaran chipped in with 21.
The West Indies gave up 31 extras including 23 wides.
The pick of the bowlers was leg-spinner Donovan Nelson,
who took four for six from 3.3 overs to bring a swift close to
the match.
Earlier left-arm spinner Derone Davis returned the
amazing figures of three for 12 from 10 overs including
seven maidens, while off-spinner Ramon Senior captured
two for 25. .

KARACHI, Pakistan
(Reuters) Arecord-breaking
century by opener Salman
Butt propelled Pakistan to a
crushing 150-run win over
Bangladesh in the fifth and
final one-dayer yesterday.
Pakistan completed a 5-0
series sweep after amassing 329
for nine, their highest total
against Bangladesh, and bowl-
ing the visitors out for 179 in
40.5 overs.
Butt's 136, his second
hundred in five matches, gave
him the record for most runs
(451) scored by a Pakistani in
a bilateral series and by any
one-day international bats-
man in a five-match series.
He comfortably surpassed
the previous best of 405 by
compatriot Mohammad Yousuf
in a five-match series against
Zimbabwe in 2003.
Pakistan President Pervez
Musharraf witnessed the final
overs as Pakistan took their
record winning streak in one-
dayers to 11, with 10 coming
against Bangladesh and Zimba-
bwe. .
Bangladesh's batsmen were
undone by the new ball yester-
Mohammad Asif took
three quick wickets, includ-
ing two in successive balls m
his third over, to reduce
Bangladesh to 23 for four.

Captain Mohammad
Ashraful made his highest
score of the series (30) before
his soft dismissal in the 14th
over opened the floodgates
Asif had opener Junaid
Siddique caught at gully by
Butt for six and next ball
trapped Aftab Ahmed lbw for
a duck.
Fellow paceman Umar
Gul had opener Tamim Iqbal
(9) caught behind and the big-
gest blow came when Asif
bowled Shakib Al Hasan (5),
who made 75 and 108 in the
two previous games,
Ashraful pushed a wide
ball from Shahid Afridi to
first slip before left-arm
paceman Wahab Riaz

Dear Sherry
I misbehaved with a work colleague, and now I am the talk of
the office. It was nothing bad, really, but I told another colleague
and now, bettause she is jealous of the situation and the attention I
am getting, she is talking about it to other members of staff. The
guy who I had the encounter with is being teased about it, and I
feel he maay talk to save face. I feel so guilty. What should I do?
The biggest mistake is letting your little secret slip out in the
first place. Prevention is always better than cure, so if you're mis-
behaving, do everything witi your power to make sure nobody
knows. LoCk, if it does come out, play it down or deny all knowl-
edge, and convince your workmates it didn't happen. Unless there's
photographic evidence of your encounter, it's your word against

Mn have come a long way since the ape days, and
if you are a gorgeous girl walking past a guy who
thibs you are beautiful, a little whistle can't do you
any 'harm. It takes an element of bravado for him

feel attractive, shouldn't we have the good manners
to return the compliment? Or just simply say: 'Thank

1. Quickest way toh~isheart
Understand him andinever try to change him. Men are mercu-
rial creatures they're bigi tough and full of bravado. And yet deep
down, they're all jast little boys playing the game of life. You have
to love him for who he is; not what you think you can make him
into. If you wish to capture a man's heart, there are a few 'under
no circumstances' things you must never do. Don't:
Sound like h~is mother;
Criticise his bedroolia skills without being prepared to tell him .
what you really need be veen the sheets;
Boast about your~ ejiboyfriends;
Tell him he's boring; and most of all
Nag him. Never evernag.
2. Some things you should definitely do:
Tell him he's hot;
Tell him he's a great driver;
Watch sport on TV with him;
Tell him he's the best lover you've ever had, without making it
sound like you've had 16ts (a little lying goes a long way!);
Cook him his favourite meals. It's so easy and yet it's like los-

just impossible.

Dear Sherry
My friends and I are in disagreement about what bbing in love
means. Can you also give us some tips rules of the 16ve and lust
game. We are all young but we all have different points of view.
We need guidance.
Hmm...! Love and sex two very different subjects indeed!
Love is like getting hit by a large truck and not lxiing mortally
wounded. You feel sick to your stomach high one minute, and
low the next; starving, hungry, but unable to eat. You feel hot, cold,
forever horny, and full of hope and enthusiasm, with~ momentary
depressions that wipe you out. It's also about not being able to
remove the smile from your face; living life with passionate inten-

trol this heart-stopping roller-coaster ride that just has to take its
course. It's all that and more: It's an ecstatic high, and the lowest
of the low, the best beauty treatment on the market and, some-
times, it's too intrusive for its own good.
Sex is another trip altogether, because it comes in all different
disguises. There's loving sex, boring sex, dirty sex, crazy sex, pre^

People, or individuals, who truly understand an~d want the in-
tellectual benefits and pleasure of film culture, know they cannot
sit back and rely on the bulk of terrible, common, commercial films
others dump on them whether through DVD sales or cinema shows;
that rather they have to search and find the distribution agents of
an enormous amount of profoundly enlightening and pleasurable
films, old and new, from America, Europe, India, Africa, Brazil, Hong
Kong, or Mexico.
Because the American film industry began to find ways to domi-
nate the international film culture market, European films began to
be pushed out of the way since the beginning of the 1980s. Yet,
these films are far less concerned with violence, crime, fantasies,
and exaggerated actions as the average Hollywood film today. Arare
survey from 1988 shows that America produced 511 films, as op-
posed to the 447 that originated from six European countries iri the
same year. Yet, less than 50% of these European films were seen
outside eo Europe, whereas the
American films were distributed
and seen orldnwida, ici gD i

making more profit than any other
motion picture.
Of course, both the English
spoken in American films, and
their affluent multi-racial social
settings help to spread their
popularity in English-speaking na- --;
tions around the world, especially
in Britain, but it is important to
think about what essential
civilised, enlightening, and strong .
constructive everyday real life val-
ues audiences are missing, espe-
cially in nations like today's
Guyana, where European films are
rarely seen.
A people's devastating and
abominable history can create a creative reaction of powerful,
practical, clarifying, and humane forms of art. Europe's history,
with its Roman Empire, its Royal wars, its Colonial empires,
its two horrific world wars, is like that. After the end of the
Second World War, Europeans said enough is enough, and its
great modern artists began a succession of styles, especially in
the areas of painting, literature and film-making, which, by their
thoughtful analyses, criticism, and sensuality, changed the world
from the basis of inner attitudes first, before affecting the struc-
ture society in a new liberal, permissive manner.
We recognize and accept the benefits of European film culture
for this sort of new, civilized example it has established. When we
mention European cinema or motion pictures however, most people
immediately think of Britain, France, or Italy. But Poland has pro-
duced some of the most original and unforgettable fim-makers, such
as Wojciech Has, whose 1958 film, 'Farewells', is simply unique
for its stunningly beautiful mixture of human and artistic sensual-
ity. Also, Andrei Wajda, whose 1982 masterpiece, 'Danton', about
the French revolutionary w~ho turned against State Iterror and pro-
claimed a lifestyle of peace and sensuality, only to be guillotined
by Robbespierre and his trsbunal, won hun much praise. Then there
are the beautiful films of Krzwrnof Klestowslo, whose trilogy of
films, 'Red' 1994, 'White' 1993, and 'Blue' 1993, leave us stunned
that fims can be so accurate about people's daily lives, yet carry
us forward into higher zones of reform and pleasure. Lastly, Ro-
man Polanski, perhaps the most famous, or notorious of Polish di-
rectors, whose films never cease to amaze and shock us with their
perverse absurdities, their characters' painful experiences, which
never succeed in destroying eventual sanity and rationality. Russia
as well, after its two experimental film theorists and directors
Eisenstein and Dziga-Vertov, very early showed film's potential,
emerged with some astonishing film makers in the late 20th Cen-

tury, the greatest no doubt being Andrei Tarkovsky, whose surprising
films, especially 'Solaris', 'Nostalgia', and 'The Sacrifice' of 1986,
are all totally unique and spell-binding.
The secret is in Tarkovsky's ability, as with all great visual art-
ists, to affect us, our emotions, our intelligence, our humanity, withi
images beyond simple familiarity. The sensuality of Tarkovsky's
images infects depth of wonder and restores the world's beauty and
meaning despite its trials. This is evident in 'The Sacrifice', which
won the Cannes Special Jury Prize in 1986. A film of desolfete
beaches strewn with tattered debris, suggesting a world affected by
nuclear and ecological threats in the air, where huge jet liners roar
by low over a lone wooden house on Sweden's seacoast; where a
man decides to change his life overnight, to start a whole new life
in the midst of a few friends, family, lover etc.
In the midst of his emotional crisis is human joy, sensuality, as
when the beautiful body of a nude woman runs through his house
in playful Edenic suggestiveness.
The state of the world is related to the male/female and
family relationship, from which all of us emer e to suffer pv-
erty, iqiustice, happiness, pain, and death. Hence, films which
delve into all such existential experiences can use the sen-
sual relationship between man and woman as the microcosm
of issues concerning freedom,
economics, health, power, etc.
clis rings usaback o those
rectors like Francois Truffaut,
Jean-Luc Godard, and Eric
Rohmer. All the sharp talk in
their films are not for nothing;
it saves us from a lot of misun-
derstandings, mistakes, and ir-
rational, hasty, unintelligent
1 behaviour later. The stability of
many Western European na-
tions is related to its citizens
seeing and heeding such cul-
tural lessons of these films.
A In two of Truffaut's many
great male/female films, like 'Sto-
len Kisses' of 1968, and 'Bed and
* *Board' of 1970, the social issues
of economics, manipulation, ex-
ploitation, and tolerance are explored. In 'Bed and Board', when
the couple lies in bed reading she about a famous male ballet
dancer; he about the intimate habits of Japanese women issues
of freedom, tolerance, and jealousy are resolved.
In Italy's Michelangelo Antonioni's profoundly interesting film,
'Identification of a Woman' of 1982, the lonesome artist/film-maker,
Tomas Milian searches for two women who come and go in his
life, intending to find artistic meaning in their behaviour, shows the
emotional value of sensuality without procreative sex when he pr
forms cunnilingus on Danielle Silvera. Similarly, in Marco
Bellecchhio's 'Devil in the Flesh' of the 1980s, the beautiful Dutch
actress, Marushka Detmers, pestered by her possessive mother,
reclaims her sensual self-satisfaction by performing the non-pro-
creative act of fellattio on her new boyfriend. Both~ acts in both
films are shown in full realism, uncut, because these are nor porno-
graphic films, but highly intelligent artistic films.
The pursuit of sensuality as an un-procreative act can restore
emotional stability, obviously. But in Federico Fellini's 'City Of
Women' of 1984, Mlarcello Mastrolanru Is at his rollicking best as a
ladies man who falls asleep on a tram and has terrible dreams of
various beautiful women he knew turning into man-haters. Fellini
feared such a backlash emerging as civilization progressed. How-
ever, not to worry. American cinema as well has given non-violent
sensuality to TV programs on the Showcase channel; fabulous
shows like 'Naked Josh', 'Sex in the City', and 'The Red Shoe
Diaries' are not to be missed.
The refreshing Zalman King who directs the 'Red Shoe'
episodes, also made the hot, brilliantly sensual, yet underrated
film, 'Wild Orchid', appropriately filmed in Brazil with
Mickey Rourke and Jacqueline Bissett. The sensuapl image la
motion pictures has a satisfying, civilized effect whose ben-
efits should be admitted.

The majority of Amenican/Hollywood motion pictures do not
focus on this today, because they are more concerned with formu-
las for exaggerated dramas, and twisted bizarre plots and events as
'entertainment'. But I hasten to add that American/Hollywood mo-
tion pictures also mastered the social film; it exposed corruption,
bigotries, injustices, colomialism, economic exploitation, and crime
inspired by materialistic economic values.
The greatness of American/Hollywood cinema comes from its
frankness, its honesty, and brilliant invention of two profound
genres: Westerns, and Film Noir. The fact that in most American/

Hollywood films, events usually end up in crime, violence, and trag-
edy probably has something to do with their raw, crude, frontier
hisoy their urban boom which unleashed fierce industrial compe-

Nevertheless, there are enough great American films to form a
huge galaxy, the sensuality and sensitivity of which has had a sub-
stantial hand in raising internationally those universal human val-
ues beyond race and nationality mentioned above.
No one, and no film venue interested in such values, can afford
to ignore many films by outstanding humane American/Hollywood
film directors like Michel Leisen, Douglas Sirk, Preston Sturges
George Cukor, Frank Capra, Elia Katzan (especially films like 'n
the Waterfront' and 'Pinky'), Gordon Douglas (especially 'Young
At HIeart'), William Wyler (especially 'The Best Years Of Our Lives'
and 'Mrs Miniver' ), Billy Wilder (especially 'The Lost Weekend'
'The Apartment', and 'Irma La Douce') Robert Redford, Woody
Allen, and others of the same ilk. i
Lest anyone should think such humane values reach high
artistry only in Hlollywood and European films, we can easily
refer to profound classics in Indian films, before the Bollywood
glut of glossy, exaggerated dramas, which render Indians ot
as special exotic subjects for foreign eyes, but ordinary strog-
gling members of the human family in films like KA Abbar's
'Dharti Ke Lal'; Meboob's 'Aurat' (Woman) and 'Roti'(Bread);
and of course, Satyagit Ray's films, especially 'The Apu 'Ikil-

WQRLD Book and Copyright Day is on Wednesday, April 23.
SIn 2007, we in G~uyana marked the occasion with an exhibition
of Guyanese books and a photographic display of Guyanese writ-
ers. This exhibition was staged at the National Library under the
auspices of the National Library in collaboration with this writer
who coordinated the event. The theme on that occasion was 'Guyana
- Land of Many writers'. On display were rare and out-of-print
books that have impacted the international landscape of literature.
The photographic display of our writers caused quite a stir among
younger patrons. Schoolchildren, for the first time, perhaps, were
able to put a face to writers like Martin Carter, E R Braithwaite,
Edlgar Mittelholzer, Pauline Melville, Grace Nichols, Rajkumari
Sipgh, and Mahadai Das among others,
Although this effort may have escaped international attention;
although this effort was not noted on the website of the United
Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation
(UNESCO), it was significant and effective in furthering the objec-
ti ~es set out by that organisation for World Book and Copyright
. Day.
SWorld Book and Copyright Day was established in 1995
by UNESCO. This move resulted from deliberations at the
levyl of its General Conference, a move that would serve as a
wei-Idwide celebration of books to promote reading, and to en-
courage publishing and the protection of intellectual property
through copyright.
TIhe General Conference, in a proclamation issued back then,
held that:
"... historically, books have been the most powerful factor in
the dissemination of knowledge and the most accurate means of
pres rvmng it...
['and] that all moves to promote their dissemination will serve
not only greatly to enlighten all those who have access to them,
but also to develop fuller collective awareness of cultural traditions
throughout the world and to inspire behaviour based on understand-
ing, tolerance and dialogue."
The idea of having a World Book and Copyright Day has its
genesis in an interesting affair practised in Spain. Some eight de-

cades ago in the Region of Catalonia, a tradition started whereby
on St George's Day, which is on April 23, a rose was given as a gift
for each book sold.
The day April 23 was adopted, according to UNESCO, because
it was on that date in 1616 that Miguel de Cervantes, William
Shakespeare and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died.
April 23 is also associated with the birth or death of other well-
known writers like Vladimir Nabokov, K Laxness, Josep Pla, Murice
Druon, and Manuel Mejia Vallejo.
The parameters for World Book and Copyright Day expands
each year with innovative initiatives to capture and maintain atten-
tion on various aspects of the book industry. In 2007, for instance,
the emphasis was on providing "a further opportunity for political
decision-makers, economic operators and civil society stakeholders
to pay tribute to that unique tool for expression, education and
communication: The book."
In 2006, it was on "the key role played by translators, with-
out whom intercultural dialogue through books would not be pos-
Apart from worliig on a theme each year, UNESCO em-
barked on another initiative under the mandate of World Book
and Copyright Day p~roject. In 2001, it implemented World
Book Capital City tot support programmes for the publishing
industry. This new dimension in publishing further enhances
the role of books in society as an instrument of expression,
debate, education, research, and communication. This year,
World Book Capital City is Amsterdam, the Netherlands' teem-
ing capital. In 2007, it was Bogotd, capital of Colombia here
in South America. .
A day to celebrate books is a laudable initiative. We in Guyana
are always celebrating books. Some books published in recent times
have evoked debate and controversy, while others have been found
to be informing as well as entertaining.
Already, for 20083 numerous Guyanese titles have been pub-
lished and there has been a significant number of book launches.
For 2008, Guyana has embarked upon an ambitious project labelled
the 'Guyana Classics', wherein at least five of some 30 Guyanese

rare and out-of-print titles will be published, some to be launched
at Carifesta X in August.
Guyana is hosting Carifesta X, an event in which the Literary
Arts will play a major role. The idea of having a Caribbean Festival
of Creative Arts came out of the deliberations of our custodians of
word and ideas.
In his message to mark World Book and Copyright Day 2008,
Mr Koichiro Matsuura, Director-General of UNESCO is quoted
as saying:
"Books contribute to shaping and maintaining the educational,
cultural and economic fabric of our societies, and play multiple and
fundamental roles in it.
"These works of the mind protected by copyright, which
enrich the intangible heritage of humanity, are also merchan-
disei) a duality that has been highlighted and analysed on many
occasions. Books are thus the pivot in a vast chain of income
generating activities and professions, and an important com-
ponent of economic development."

I've been married 25 years
and have three children over
18. When we first got mar-
ried, we were in a group of
five couples. My husband had
been friends with the hus-
bands, and one of the wives,
since college. This one wife
was needy, and always look-
ing for attention.
Apparently, before I was
married, my husband had a few
sexual encounters with this
woman. Some of the wives got
fed up with her constant flirta-
tiousness and pulled out of the

group. When I tried to pull out,
she supposedly told my hus-
band if we did, she would tell
me they were having an affair.
That was 13 years ago.
Since then, I've found sexual
cards and text messages to and
from my husband. He says it's
a way to appease her because
she is unhappy in her marriage.
More recently, he met her at a
club so he could stop her text
messages and frequent phone
He did not tell me of this

to tell me because she would
make stuff up. I filed for di-
vorce. After that, he had a hid-
den phone, which he says she
sent him, and he would text her
after I went to bed.
Just recently, he took out an
order of protection against her
because she was leaving so
many messages on his work

sages threatened me. At the

IN 1968, the Court laid down
guidelines. under which the
depositions of absent wit-
nesses could be read to the
jury in crinlinal cases under'
Section 95 (1) when it was
pointed out that in certain
circumstances, .the practice
could prejudice ~a fair trial.
In the case of Regina verses
Edwin Ogle, where the deposi-
tions of three witnesses wdre
refused, the Court held that the
word 'may', in section 95 (1) of
the Evidence Ordinance Chap-
ter 25,-was permissive and not
But despite those guide ies
in that and ot her cases, thb
Courts are being inundated yith ~
applications front the Prosecu-
tion for the right to have such
depositions accepted on every
occasion. e
In the Ogle case, Chancellor
Victor Crane had taken into inc-
count the Constitutional Law -
Fundainental rights provision
and fair trial within a reasonable ;
The facts of the case di -
closed that ori.March 25, 1965,
the accused was committed~to
stand trial at the.nexct sitting of

the Criminal Assizes .for
.De~merara for certain offences of
forgery, alleged to have been
committed between August 13
and 26, 1964.
SSome twelve sittings later,
on May 6, 1968, the indictment
containing ten counts came up
fdr trial. On.his arraignment,
the accused pleaded' not guilty
to all the counts.
The prosecution, after
opening.the case, sought, by
the usual method, to lead evi-
dence with a view to have ad-
mitted~lnto evidence the depo-
sition of a witnesir:wiho was
then resident abroad, and to
adopt the same procedure
ivith regard to two other~ wit-
Counsel on behalf of the ac-
cused objected, and arguments
were heard in the absence of the .
jury. .
SFollowing the arguments,
Justice Crane held that:
S(i) the word.~'may' in sec-
tion 95 (1) of the Evidence Or-
dinance Chapter 25 was permis-
.sive and not mandatory;
(ii) in exercising that discre-
tion, a court must look at both
sides of the picture;

(iii) under Article 10 (1) of
the Constitution, it is manda-
tory that an accused person
have a fair hearing within a rea-
sonable time, and when the time
is long delayed between com-
mittal and trial, the burden is on
the prosecution to satisfactorily
explain the delay;
(iv) when Article 10 wvas
read in conjunction with Section
71 of the Criminal Law (Proce-
dure Ordinance, Chapter 11, the
words "next practicable sitting"
of the Assizes means. any sub-
.sequent sitting at which, the
Crown can conveniently assign
the accused, and not necesssr-
ily to every next sitting after

stances into consideration, to

dice of a fair trial;

as the one under consideration

in charge of the jury. This was

After opening the Crown's
case, Mr Sharma sought to call
evidence to prove the deposi-
tions of a witness who was resi-
dent abroad. -
Mr Massiah, for the ac-
cused, immediately objected to
the course proposed, intimating
that what he intended to say
would apply equally to the case
of two other depositions, which
the Crown would also seek to
prove in'the course of the trial.
The jury, accordingly, with-

(BBC News) They callAyn al-
Tineh, the valley below the
Druze village of Majdal
Shams, the Hill of Tears, or
the Hill of Shouts.
It was here, after the Israeli
occupation of the Syrian Golan
Heights in 1967, that divided
families used to come from ei-
ther side of the border to see
each other through binoculars
and shout messages.
But on April 17, it was the
scene of what must have been
one of the world's strangest
open-air festivals, as the Syrian
Druze celebrate their uprising

against French rule in the 1920s,
known as Yawm al-Jala, the
Day of Expulsion.
The people of Majdal
Shams and other Israeli-oc-
cupied Druze towns gathered
on their side of the ce~asefire
line, and about 300m away -
across razor wire and the
heavily~ mined Ayn al-Tineh
valley sit their counterparts
in Syria.
The two sides put on mu-
sical entertainments, sing and
dance, and wave Syrian flags
which flutter in the mountain
breeze against the lush green
Emotions are high on the

occupied side as families try to
make out relatives standing on
the tailor-made viewing plat-
form erected by Syria the only
clearly visible features being
those of President Bashar al-
Assad in a portrait crowning the
Communications revolution
Salwa, Ikram and Madiha,
three sisters, think they have
identified their niece, Minas,
who is studying at Damascus

replica puts into Barbados



By Norman Faria

IN JUNE 1839, two Cuban
plantation owners were
transporting their 53 newly.
bhought slaves from Havana to
another port 100 miles to the
east on a small coastal
schooner when the slaves
revolted, seized the vessel and
ended up shipwrecked on the
shores of the eastern United
Had the survivors gone
ashore and merged with the
people, living and dying
obscurely, little would be known
about this significant and
courageous rebellion, except
perhaps as footnotes to more
well-known accounts of slave
uprisings such as those in Haiti
(Toussaint I'Overture), the US
(Nat Turner, Lousiana Revolt,
Black Seminole
rebellion for example),
Barbados (Bussa), and Guyana
(Cuffy). There were also several
documented 'mutinies' on slave
ships on the Atlantic crossing,
The Amistad uprising (so
described because of the name of
the schooner) is now, and
justifiably so, one of the most
extensively written about and
remembered US and Cuban

rebellions of this type, due to the
subsequent court hearing and the
involvement of the anti-slavery
abolitionists. The American
movie director, Steven Speilberg
made a film about it in 1997.
A replica of the famous
ship, also named AMISTAD and
launched in 2000 from the
famous Mystic Seaport yard in
the State of Connecticut in the
US recently visited Barbados,
and I was greatly honoured to
tour it on behalf of the
government and people of
I learnt that the surviving
(some had died of thirst and
exposure when the vessel drifted
or sailed aimlessly for weeks)
Africans and ship's crew (the
Captain and cook were killed in
the incident and two sailors
escaped) were taken ashore by
US armed personnel at New
London, in Connecticut. They
were put on trial for murder and
piracy. The testimony against
them came from the ungrateful
but lucky slave owners, by the
name of Ruiz and Montez, who
had been on board and whose
lives the slaves had spared.
Following a series of
highly-publicised trials
involving the then US

President, Martin van Buren,
and one of his predecessors,
John Quincy Adams, District
Judge, Andrew Judson set the
slaves free. His ruling was
opposed by van Buren, who
felt his support among slave
owners in the Southern US
would be compromised. The
Spanish government also
wanted the ship and "goods"
returned to her colony, Cuba.
Though one would tend to
question the then US judicial
system, in terms of its
limitations when dealing with
issues pertaining to people of
colour, Judge Judson realized
that the Spanish
government's signing of an
1820 international Treaty
prohibiting slave trading
among Spanish territories
made thel1839 kidnapping and
enslavement of Africans
The slaves were from
western Africa (the majority
were from the Mende
community, primarily indigenous
to southern Sierra Leone and
parts of Liberia). The slave
owners tried unsuccessfully to
use forged papers. They had
given the slaves Spanish names
to make it look like they had

been in Cuba long before the
Treaty was signed. The main
leader of the revolt, a Mende
man named Sengbe Pieh, was,
for example, renamed Jos6
One reason for the verdict
going in the rebels' favour was
the role of the abolitionists who
also mobilised public opinion,
One of the three persons who
headed the Amistad co-ordinating
committee was Joshua Leavitt,
editor of the 'Emancipator', the
official organ of the American
Anti-Slavery Society. But
sections of the public, in the
northern States at least,
appeared to admire Pieh's
fighting for a just cause and also
his personal leadership qualities.
By this time too, several widely-
reported slave uprisings had
taken place.
A problem for the "defence"
team at the trials was to find
someone to translate the English
testimony and documents into
the Mende language,

According to Chris Roche, a
British volunteer on the
AMISTAD replica: "A
professor of Theology at Yale

University and an abolitionist
sympathiser, JW Gibbs,
managed to learn to count to ten
in the Mende language. He then
went around the New York docks
repeating the words to sailors.
Eventually, he met up with a
man named James Covey, a
seaman on a British warship
named the BUZZARD, who
asked him why was he speaking
his language. So Covey was
enlisted as an interpreter."
In 1841, the 35 surviving
Africans, along with some
missionaries, returned to Africa
on board the barque,
Landing in Sierra Leone,
some of them dispersed to their
ancestral lands. Pieh himself
died there, and was buried among
the missionaries.
According to an account
written by Sierra Leone
historian, Arthur Abraham, and
published on a US State
Department website, to which I
am indebted for some of the
information in this article, the
actual AMISTAD schooner had
been auctioned off by US
Marshalls in 1840. It had
operated as a trading schooner,
renamed the ION, in Caribbean
waters under a new US owner/
captain until it was sold to a
French owner in Guadeloupe in
1844, after which nothing is
known about it.
No plans of the AMISTAD
were known to be in existence,
and the replica was based on
drawings of it and other
traditional Baltimore-type
schooners. The original was 120
feet in length overall, but the
replica is slightly longer with
higher freeboard (sides). The
construction of the present
AMISTAD was funded mainly
by the State of Connecticut.
Among those in Barbados
on the occasion of the
AMISTAD's visit was Bill
Pinkney who was the first
African-American to single-
handedly circumnavigate the
world in a small cruising boat.
In a lecture in the
auditorium of the Barbados
Workers Union, Pinkney said
the idea of a replica vessel
had been around for some
time. In 1976, a sailing vessel
named LA AMISTAD was
chartered from Cuba to
participate in the Tall Ships
Parade to commemorate the
bicentennial year of the
United States.

I rewarding


Text and photograph:
By Shirley Thomas
AFTER more than twenty exciting years behind the
wicket, national cricket umpire, Courtney Daniels saw
a rewarding career come to an abrupt end on July 13
On that ill-fated day, Daniels, 56, was riding his motor
cycle late the afternoon on his way to work on the Number
One Public Road, on the Corentyne where he belongs, when
he was hit from behind by a minibus. The result was that
not only was his right leg broken in the region of the instep,
but he'd also lost the heel of that very foot as well.
Had it not been for the kindness of a Good Samaritan,
both he and his pillion rider might have been long dead as
the driver of the minibus that hit them, perhaps after realiz-
mng the trouble he was in, simply took off, leaving them
bleeding there on the roadway.
Unable to walk since and plagued by poor circulation,
which is seriously affecting the injured leg, he is now forced
to use a wheelchair to get around. Amidst excruciating pain,
he sometimes tries to improve the circulation in the affected
leg by keeping it slightly elevated.
For him, it has been nine long months of sheer agony
and great discomfort.
Not only is he worried about the future and whether
he'd ever be able to use his leg again, but there's also the
SLikelihood that he might never be able to work again either.
j How then will he be able to upkeep himself, he often
wonders, as, in spite of the several surgical procedures he
C ~:~ halhad over the months, yet still he is unable to stand on
But as bad as that experience was, nothing could have
it ever prepared him for the death of his loving and devoted
wife January gone after a brief illness.
Now consumed by an unsettling combination of deep
grief and pain, he also has to come to terms with the fact
that the man responsible for his predicament has never been
placed before the Court, is walking free, and blithely contin-
ues to ply his trade.
^ *From his hospital bed, the injured man is appealing to
'~P1 the Traffic Chief to look into this most unfortunate matter.
Up until his involvement in the accident, Daniels,
who hails from Rose Hall, on the Corentyne Coast, was

FROM an early age, Latoya

It was only a few years af-

their friendship and Shela's fu-

Shela began to feel unwell

hearing the symptoms de-

(BBC News) Take a drive around rural Ghana and large
swathes of the country appear green and fertile.
So you might then wonder why Ghanaians spend between $200
and $300 a year on imported rice.
The current supply of local rice is less than a third of the de-
mand but there is potential for a green revolution here. And as in-
ternational rice prices escalate, experts say the time is right.
"I believe if we used just 1% of what we spend in a year on
importing rice to build up our own rice industry we could be self
sufficient," says Kofi Dartey of Ghana's Crop Research Institute,
based in Kumasi.
A two-hour drive away, near the town of Ejura, rice farmers
are comparing notes and planning a strategy to boost their yields
now that the rains have started.
Sitting outside the district agricultural headquarters, their im-
mediate danger comes from above mangoes are dropping from the
tree at an alarming rate and someone is soon going to get a bruise.
Kofi Dartey is working with the farmers to develop a new rice
seed which has been hailed as the answer to Africa's rice shortfall.
New Rice For Africa (Nerica) was developed less than 10 years
ago and is a hybrid combining the higher yielding Asian and the
hardy African seeds.
As Kofi Dartey produces several plastic bags of different seeds,
the farmers closely inspect them, even taking a nibble to check the

qu e rice is very good. If you chop [eat] it, the taste is good.
"Trhe children love it because it tastes sweet," says Samuel
Uunuu,334o Ilne h hybrd sds last ao

But the farmers note that unless fertilizer is used, Nerica yields
are very low.
With the price of imported fertilisers increasing as a result of
the cost of oil plus the need for herbicides, many of the farmers are
not yet convinced that the green revolution is coming.
Three shiny 4x4 vehicles turn up with the US and Ghanaian
flags emblazoned on them.
Remember when US President George Bush promised a five-
year grant of more than $0.5bn to Ghana?

put them at risk of HIV infection.
"Guyana has the highest rate of HIV in the Caribbean. If my
classes prevent just one child from contracting the virus in the fu-
ture then my time has been well spent," explained Latoya, whose
daily lesson is given to a group of 40 students, between 13 and 14
years old, at Dolphin Secondary School in Georgetown.
Like Latoya, when Jaime Mayers was at school, he experienced
a similar lack of information available to him and his friends about
HIV and AIDS, which provoked him to providing awareness to
young people.
Jaime, 20, explained that the Commonwealth Youth Progranne
"is all about not pressing or hammering the kids with information.
Instead, he points out that "it is about giving them the tools to
help them choose their future paths."
When Jaime began educating young people about HIV two years
ago he noticed that a lot of students "Ijust didn't care". But a couple
of years down the line, these same children now regularly "come

One such student who is 'taking responsibility' is Tristan
Lyvan, a 14-year-old student at Dolphin Secondary School.
"I need to know more about HIV so that when I grow up, I
will be more careful and know what to do," said Tristan, who hopes
to be an electrician.
The 'positive living' programme began in 1993 at the Com-
monwealth Youth Programme's regional centre in Africa. It
has since been adopted in Asia, as well as the Caribbean.

Anyone who will be 14 years or older by June 30, 2008, and is a Guyanes-e citizen by birth, descent, naturalization,

G~unday Chronicle April 20, 2008

Almost two years since the deal was struck fagrind'rs are still
being identified for training.
The escape from poverty is clearly not happening at speed.
Rice farming is one potential area for investment but there are
question marks over whether the US would really like to see Ghana
become self-sufficient in rice.
After all, subsidized American rice is on sale throughout Ghana.

As the cars move on, I am taken to the district agricultural stores
where storerooms are packed with sacks of the Nerica seeds over
50 metric tonnes ready for the farmers to sow.
But at the local mill there are signs of some of the problems
facing the agriculture industry.
The miller is fast asleep and outside a young woman is drying
some maize flour on the concrete walking all over it with her bare
feet this is not the most hygienic food preparation.
Once she has left, a goat comes along for a fe lunch.
For the equivalent of around $2, the miller is woken up and a
sack of last year's Nerica crop is poured into the small diesel fu-
elled machine.
What comes out of the shoot does not impress Kofi Dartey.
"Many of the grains are broken, there are still some husks
amongst the rice, and for the Ghanaian market the grains are too
short," he says.
It would seem that Nerica rice is still very much work in
progress, but the Afica Rice Centre based in Benin aims to keep
improving the seed.
The competition is tough.
In Kumasi's central market, there is no shortage of rice.
Women sit behind 50kg sacks of rice marked 'Produce of Thai-
land' or 'USA Grain'.

tion, are fruits of the package which is partly targeted at the agri-
culture sector.
At a signing ceremony in August 2006, the US promised that
the investment would lift more than 500,000 poor Ghanaians out
of extreme poverty and would lift over one million people out of
poverty in total.

National Identification Card is a legitimate instrument of identification for the person in whose name it is issued.
You will need your National Identification Card to identify yourself for several purposes.

At Hirgigo, research into
planting mangroves began a de-
cade ago, challenging conven-
tional wisdom that the saltwa-
ter planlts also needed fresh wa-
ter to grow a major limita-
tion in the arid regions where the
trees are needed most.
Mangroves grow along

coastline, mainly in areas where
seasonal freshwater streams run
into the sea.
But Dr Gordon Sato a
respected American bio-chemist
and member of the US National
Academy of Sciences rea-
soned that what the trees needed
was not the freshwater but the
minerals the streams brought
from inland.
Planting low-cost, slow-
release fertilizer packs of ni-
trogen, phosphorous and iron
alongside each seed, Sato
and his. team from the
Eriti-ean Ministry of Fisher-
ies found they were able to
plant mangroves in areas
even previously uninhabited
by the trees.
"It opens up seemingly un-
productivre land to produce
food, alleviate hunger and create
wealth," said Sato, who named
the scheme the Manzanar
Project after the US internment
camp in the' Californian desert
where, as a Japanese-American
citizen, he spent the Second
World War.
Sato, who saw there how
plants could be grown even ip
the harshest of conditions,
believes that the simple tech-

smiling, waving at a long and
thick line of tall trees already
reaching high into the sky.
"We've planted all this al-
ready," the fisherman cum
farmer added proudly, looking
at the mangroves lining the
shore beside his small desert
village of Hirgigo.
"The little fish like the
mangroves, the big fish like
the little fish and we like
the big fish."
The seed-planting is part of
a remarkable yet low-tech pilot
project, designed as a model to
improve the lives of desert

"Before, after the rains
stopped, the villagers would
have to go far to find food for

Much of the original

Her cooking is 'a i4 ,

place at the stove to prepare 'latiere khako', a Peul (a West African people) dish made of semolina and
spinach, for her seven brothers and sisters. This first attempt proved a great success. "My brothers
congratulated me. I realized then that cooking was not necessarily a chore," admits the young.woman,
who soon abandoned the idea of becoming a fashion designer to take up a career in cooking.
With a vocational Baccalaureat after a faultless school career, she came up against the problem of
not only finding someone to take her on as an apprentice, but also the rivalry of certain colleagues who
used every means to undermine her, in a macho world in which few women are accepted. Her determi-
nation and strong temperament enabled her to overcome these obstacles as did several of the people
she encountered pastry chef, Philip~pe Conticini and~chef Stbastien Far6 who took her on at his
restaurant before taking her to Petrossian in 2001; Here,,she has carried out every job, from table
service to cooking. Then, in 2005, the ultimate hpnour. Armen Petrossian the Russian-Armenian
owner of the restaurant founded by his father in 1920 appointed her chef and put her in charge of a
team of ten people. He gave her a completely free hand to entirely new menu.
Hesitant at first,.Rougui Dia rose to the challenge. Inspired by Senegalese, Indian, West Indian
food and Caucasian~ culinary traditions, she blends flavours and spices and creates new combinations.
"My cooking is is story of integration. I add my own tastes and culture to the dishes, dipping into my
childhood memoriess" she reveals. On the plate, the results are amazingly imaginative: Iranian shrimp
curry garnished with spinach and kasha, crab and pboutargue risotto, for example.
The man who gave her her chance does not regret it. "I wanted to break away from the tradition
that demands that a chef be a man from the inner circle, by offering the means to succeed to a young
woman who is not an heiress, as H616ne Daroze or Anne-Sophie Pic are."
A great admirer of the famous chef Bernard Lolseau, who died in 2003, add who once came
into the kitchen to congratulate her,' Rougui Dia H would now like to give classes to open the
door to other women and perhaps, 6ne day, open her own restaurant. (Reprinted from Label
France, ~a publication of the French Ministry~of Foreign Affairs.)

story of integration'
By Audrey Levy
At 31, Rougui Dia is one of the very few women chefs at a top Paris restaurant the gourmet
Petrossian restaurant, which opened above the famous delicatessen in 1999.
With a haughty bearing and the delicate figure of a dancer, this young prodigy can pride herself on
having a far from traditional career path. A Frenchwoman of Senegalese origin, this daughter of a manual
worker, who came to France in the 1960s to work in a factory in Neuilly-Plaisiince, was introduced to
the subtleties of flavour at a very early age. "Every evening, my mother concocted traditional French
dishes and African specialties. Never frozen food!" she recalls, with a hint of nostalgia.
For Rougui, the culinary adventure began at the. age of 13, on the day when she took her mother's

Elsewhere, plenty of other

ARIES -- Some magic is going to happen to you today, but you will
have to slow down in order to truly experience it. Specific details are
what makes a day special, and if you whisk through things too quickly
you will never notice them! When someone gives you a sweet smile,
will it go unnoticed because you're too busy checking your text mes-
sages? Don't let that happen. Look up, look out into the world and en-
gage. Your life is not as harried as you are making it out to be.

TAURUS -- Your deep emotions will be a powerful voice in the choices
you make today, which should make your day an easy one. Instead of
getting tied up in the pros and cons of every little option or opportunity
~you come across today, you will quickly be able to see what is right for
you, and what might be better for someone else. Your clarity is some-
thing that will only be useful for you, however. You can't tell other people
what choices to make, just as they can't tell you what to do.

GEMINI -- You will wake up with a lot of high energy, today, which will
help you face the day with a big smile. That smile will continue to grow
throughout the day as you run into someone you really like, but who
Syou haven't seen in quite a while. Small talk will evolve quickly into a
Deeper connection and you will wonder Wrhy you let them hang out at
the margins of your life for so long. Make a date, and be sure to get
their new contact information -- they want to spend more time with you,

CANCER -- Today, it might seem like you have some tough choices to
make, but if you look at them through a fresh lens, you will see that
the choice is actually pretty simple. To help give yourself some clarity,
ask a friend to hear you out -- share what you are going through with
someone who you trust -- someone who; will be brutally honest, and
not just tell you what you want to hear. Do~ not worry that you will come
Soff as weak or indecisive. The people in your life want to help you.

LEO -- Be careful not to let your vanity get too involved in the choices
you make today. If you do something just because you think it will make
you look better, you'd better think again. People can quickly see through
such self-centered actions, and they know when someone is just in it
for themselves. And that's not who you are -- so don't give them any
ammunition to think that. Make your choices based on what is right --
not on what works best for you.

VIRGO -- You won't have to delve too deep to reach your inner come-
dian today -- it'll be in full force, letting you have fun and helping you
create more fun wherever you go. Reach out to new people with a joke
,or silly observation, and you will be surprised how well your sense of
humor will break the ice. You have an especially strong ability to con-
nect with children right now. Even if your: jokes are over their head,
they will sense that you are a good person.

LIBRA -- Your business is your business, so don't be shy about pro-
tecting it from inquisitive friends and family. They may mean well when
they offer their unsolicited advice, but there is no law saying you should
take it. Listen to what they say, add a grain of salt, then take it -- or
not. There could be value in what they say, but it could also just be a
lot of noise. They see things from their perspective, and they have their
own agenda. They don't know what it's like to live your life

SCORPIO -- Today, you will feel an almost magnetic pull towards beau-
tiful things. Beautiful people, gorgeous music, or even maybe just stun-
ning-looking food: These are what you want~. An increase in sensual de-
sires is often a signal that it's time for you to break away from a life
that is too oriented around facts and figures. Step out of the goals of
your daily life and realign yourself. See the beauty that is all around
you. Explore new cultures and you will be rewarded.

SAGITTARIUS -- You are in a very contemplative phase right now, but
luckily enough so are a few of your friends. Get togetherilwith the other
people in your life who are feeling moody and slow today, and get to
talking. It doesn't much matter what you talk about -- politics, music,
celebrities, food. All that really matterS' is that all of you are feeling in
synch with each other. You can help your buddies sort through things
that are confusing them, especially when it comes to relationship issues.

CAPRICORN -- One of your more casual acquaintances night start push-
ing for your relationship to grow more involved today --l~but do you re-
ally have room in your life for more friends? That might sound like a
crass question, but it is a practical one. There is such a thing as having
too many friends -- if you feel like you don't have enotuigh time to give
everyone in your life the attention they? deserve right now, then what
will adding one more person to the mix do for your stress levels'?

AQUARIUS -- If your career feels like it isn't going where you want it
to go quickly enough, right now, then you need to do some extra-cur-
ricular work. This may require researching upcoming projects on your
own time, getting social with important business contacts in the eve-
nings, or looking for outside opportunities over the weekend. It's up to
you how ambitious you want to get, but if you are not satisfied, the only
perSon who is going to give you any more satisfaction is yourself!

PISCES -- Someone thinks that you are a pushover -- and boy, are
they in for a big surprise today! As soon as you flex your muscles and
tell them what time it is, they will stop seeing you as a doormat and
start seeing you as a force to be reckoned with. It's time to stop play-
ing Mr. or Ms. Nicey-Nice, and start getting stuff done. The time for
handholding is over, and they have proven that they do not deserve
your flexibility anymore. Don't be afraid to be blunt and commanding.

JONATHAN SWIFT (1667-1745) Thoughts on
Various Subjects(1706)

Grammar: Pronouns

See how pronouns are used (Reminder)
1. Whom should I recommend?
2. Whose did you borrow?
3. Which of these table lamps shall I buy?
4. Whatever did they say?
5. The artiste who sang the opening song is my cousin.
6. The train, which arrived late, brought our friends.
7. My decorative plants are more exotic than those.
8. Today, for the first time this year, she is herself.
9. As a batting team, they have no confidence in

Distinguishing Between Adverbs and Adjectives
Some words can either be adverbs or adjectives, de-
pending on holy they are used in a sentence. To distin-
guish between these two parts of speech, remember that
an adjective modifies a noun or pronoun, and an adverb
modifies a verb, an adjective, or another adverb.

He arrived late. (adverb) She slept early. (adverb)

The dinner was late. (adjective) Jennifer had an early
date. (adjective)
You can sometimes distinguish an adverb from an ad-
jective by remembering that many ~adverbs are formed by
adding -ly to an adjective.

a rare (adjective) insect (noun)
a great (adjective) man (noun)
rarely (adverb) find (verb)
greatly (adverb) appreciate (verb)

Not all words that end in -ly are adverbs. Some at
adjectives that have added -ly to the noun.

or an adjective. :

.Hello students,
Check your examination situation as you go. By now

have to answer in each pipier; and how, many questions

~While there have always been dishonest people in this
imperfect world, the percentage of them seems much
higher now than it \vas ten or twenty or thirty years ago.
The ~criterion apparently is no longer what is wrong
or right, but what you can do to get- away with. Only
the other day I heard a twelve-year-old girl describe how
a boat with a motor had been lost in a storm. The man
who owned the boat was insured; her` father, who ownr~ed
the outboard motor, was not. "But it turned out all right,"
she sai~d happily. "Daddy signed a bill of sale, pretending
he had sold the engine to his friend before the storm. So
the friend collected the insurance and gave some of it to
Daddy." The child saw nothing in this. Why should she?
Her father, in her eyes, could do no wrong.
Thus dishonesty breeds dishonesty. It is precisely this
sort of vicious circle that our generation seems at the
moment to be entrapped. To break out of it, we are go-
ing to have to convince ourselves that dishonesty is not
only a form of anarchy that can destroy society but also
a kind of subtle poison that is extremely bad for us as
individual human beings.
Some years ago, visiting friends in Jamaica, I noticed
an old map of that Caribbean island hanging on the wall.
Across one barren area in the mountains ran a faint line
of small script. It said: The Land of Look-Behind.
"That map," my host explained, "goes back to the days
of slavery here. Whenever slaves escaped, they'd make
for the mountains. Now and then the government would
send troops to capture them. So the runaways must have
spent a lot of time looking fearfully over their shoulders.
And that's where the name came from. Rather roman-
tic, isn't it?"
"To those poor souls, no!" I said. "They might have
escaped from the sugar plantations, but weren't really
free T~l~hey were still slaves to fear. They were still
weditiing invisible chains."
Similarly, people who choose dishonesty go through
life dragging invisible chains. Even when they stifle their
cnce~c with rationalizations, something in them is al-
ways looking back fearfully, wondering if their wrong-
doing is going to catch.~up with them. They are tfaipped
in Ile Land of Look-Behind.

Mastering Writing
What have you mastered well in your writing so far?
Check the pieces you have produced, come up with a
fair view about your progress, and then resolve to de-
velop and use more skills to improve reader-interest.
Do one of the following pieces of continuous writ-
ing. Make your own judgment according to how vividly
you tell of your own sense impressions and the details
you put in.

Analysis of the Language
Words like old, different, and long are adjectives be-
cause they are used to describe something. They answer
the question "Which?"
But in the sentence,
Sandra sat under the tree that was on the ledge
the clause that was on the ledge tells which tree. It
describes the particular tree and modifies or limits our
choice of trees to think about. That clause does what a
word that is an adjective does, so it is an adjective clause.
Now see if you can pick out the Adjective Clauses in
the following sentences. The effort will help you
recognize your adjective clauses:

She was also nominated for
the title of Best Caribbean De-

Trinidad's Heather Jones.
Picking up an award is noth-

her mark across the Caribbean
and at some of the best fashion
events in New York and Miami.
With new award in her

Brigitte Barilot on

trial for Muslim slur
PARIS (Reuters) French former film star Brigitte Bardot ;
went on trial on Th~esday for insulting Muslims, the fifth time j
she has faced the charge of "inciting racial hatred" over her
controversial remarks about Islam and its followers.
Prosecutors asked that the Paris court hand the 73-year-
old former sex symbol a two-month suspended prison sentence
and fne her 15,000 euros ($23,760) for saying the Muslim com-
munity was "destroying our country and imposing its acts."
Since retiring from the film industry in the 1970s, Bardot
has become a prominent animal rights activist but she has also
courted controversy by denouncing Muslim traditions and im-
migration from predominantly Muslim countries.
She has been fined four times for inciting racial hatred since
1997, at first 1,500 euros and most recently 5,000.
Prosecutor Anne de Fontette told the court she was seek-
ing a tougher sentence than usual, adding: "I am a little tired of
prosecuting Ms Bardot.
Bardot did not attend the trial because she said she was
physically unable to. The verdict is expected in several weeks.

ing gays, immigrants and the unemployed, in which she
also lamented the "Islamisation of France.,,
