 Father faces charges for assaulting daughters
November 5, 2010   
Albert Higgins of Tuschen, West Coast Demerara, appeared before Magistrate Nyasha Hatmin yesterday at the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of unlawfully assaulting and causing actual bodily harm to his two daughters, both of whom are minors.
It is alleged that on October 31, last, at around 11:15 hours, the defendant asked his two daughters what they were looking at on the television at a friend’s home and the children responded by saying they were looking at “blues” (pornographic movies).
According to Prosecutor Inspector Krishnadat Ramana, after Higgins received the response from his daughters, he picked up a belt and dealt the girls several lashes. The matter was reported to the Leonora Police Station by the man’s two daughters, in the presence of their mother.
When Magistrate Hatmin asked the mother if she took the children to make the report, her answer was affirmative, but she also stated that she was “forced to go make the report”. She told the Magistrate that a welfare officer took her children to the police station and telephoned her saying that she should go to the station.
Higgins pleaded guilty to the charges, but with an explanation. He said that his wife had been called into the children’s school two consecutive times for their unacceptable behaviour and when this incident occurred, it was the school who called in the Welfare Department.
The defendant stated that he did indeed give his children a few lashes, however, when a teacher observed red marks on their skin and legs, the welfare officer was called into the school and took his children to the Leonora Station, where the mother was told to go. He explained that the mother was held in custody until he arrived at the station, but he was given no chance by the welfare officer to learn of the matter or know what the cause was for him having to be at the station.
Higgins further claimed that he believed he was disciplining his children by giving them a few lashes but he now realized it was wrong of him to do so.
Prosecutor Inspector Ramana did not object to bail.
Magistrate Hatmin then stated that she would need a probation report. Higgins was placed on $10,000 bail.
The defendant is to make his next court appearance on November 26

the government need to develop a 'blueprint' on what constitute child abuse, since it now seems like if a parent even lift their pinky on their kids they are being held 'hostage' by the court.

No wonder there are so many incidences of underaged rapes - these kids are both minors and they are already looking at "blue" movies. I wonder if by any chance the friend was a male (or female) and how did the friend get his hands on the porn!  and it look like the minors are also trouble makers in school. If this was in my days there asses would have been more than black and blue from a good ass whopping.

Okay, so is'nt porno illigal in Guyana?  Why has'nt the welfare officer not gone to the house where these girls watching these movies in order to investigate.  Often times watching these movies will lead to having sex as they are ment to arouse.  So is it ok for minors to have sex, but not be disiplined by theit parents?

Bai, the above is a strange story. I guess it's easy to make blue movies DVDs from free internet porn.

It is a chain of events. If the teacher fails to observe and report visible signs of abuse he/she will be disciplined. When the social work is called in he/she must take protective action. I am interested to see what the magistrate rules. Will the rule of law prevail.

This letter sums up very nicely the going trend in Guyana and the government is quite contend with the way the situation has turned out because some of the Ministers are themselves part of the problem when it comes to vulgarity and sexual exploitation of underaged children.

Overseas-based Guyanese wants to return home but…November 9, 2010 | By KNews | Filed Under Letters 

Dear Editor,

I was recently in Guyana and feel strong repulsion toward the vulgarity the innocents are subjected to in the minibuses. I am an overseas-based Guyanese, who is madly in love with my country. Guyana for me as well as for many others over here is our true home. I would love to come back home to live.

President Jagdeo was recently here making promises to Guyanese who would like to return home. Among the promises made was the allocation of house lot to anyone who would like to return. This is all well and good. But Mr. President even though I do not own a house where I am and many of us have to work two jobs to survive here, my democratic rights are not trampled upon.

On my way to and from work Mr. President, I can read a novel, study for an exam and have my children not subjected to the vulgarity they were subjected to back home in the minibuses. I want to come back home sir. But I want to be able to ride on the minibuses free of noise and vulgarity. I want to recline in my home without boom boxes accompanying the barbeque, the police give permission to hold in front of my home.

I love my country sir. Do you not see the rise in incest and vulgarity in our nation sir? My heart goes out to our children who have been mentally robbed of their innocence at the hands of drivers and conductors and to the old folks suffering in these modes of transportation.

When will this downward spiral of blatant disregard for the innocent stop? Why are the religious organisations and GHRA silent about this vulgarity? Is it because the big wigs in these organisations are not themselves or their children subjected to it because they have their own vehicle to transport them?

My heart hurts for the folks who do not have a voice. My anger rise at the thought of the police for subjecting innocent people in their homes, to noise nuisance and vulgarity. Mr. President, please bring back democracy to the people and stamp out lawlessness of the drivers, conductors and barbeque boom boxes.

Overseas-Based Guyanese

 Ministry withdraws letters to QC teachers
November 9, 2010 
… Neesa Gopaul issue continues

Following extensive talks with the Minister of Education over the weekend, the Guyana Teachers’ Union has managed to get the letters issued to three teachers of Queen’s College withdrawn. The letters spelt out disciplinary action in the wake of an investigation into the Neesa Gopaul incident.
Late yesterday evening, following a meeting with Minister of Education Shaik Baksh, General Secretary of the Guyana Teachers’ Union, Coretta Mc Donald, made the announcement. Speaking with the media, Ms. Mc Donald said that from the offset the investigation was null since the Union was not involved at any point.
“The procedures were not observed; that is the investigation was done and GTU was not a part of it. Most of the documents we have circulating in school state that the Union must be involved in any investigation.”
According to Mc Donald, the entire investigation and its findings were reviewed and hence the letters that were issued to Candida Williams, Deputy head Nadia Hollingsworth and Carol Marks have been withdrawn.
Mc Donald said the Minister has given all assurances that the previous letters will be followed by another letter indicating that the initial letter is null and void.
Meanwhile, as it relates to the letter which was issued to the now retired Head teacher of the school, Mc Donald said that letter has not been withdrawn. She however noted that since the head teacher is also a member of the union, the body will be pursuing the matter. She explained that the matter will be pursued with the hope of getting a lighter penalty.
In addition, the Guyana Teachers’ Union has stated that it will now be fully endorsing the 50th annual school championship.
President of the Union, Colin Bynoe has since stated that he is pleased with the decision of the Ministry of Education.

Child Care keeps 14-year-old Enmore girl… child was drugged, raped by neighbour
November 9, 2010 | By KNews | Filed Under News 

The Child Care and Protection Agency has decided to take custody of a 14-year-old girl for fear of what could happen to her, given that her alleged rapist was put on station bail, the girl’s relatives said yesterday. The incident occurred two Thursdays ago while the girl was alone at her Enmore, East Coast Demerara home.  The alleged rapist lived just next door.

According to relatives, the girl was admitted to the Georgetown Hospital and was free to go since last Friday. But the girl’s relatives said that they were told by the Ministry of Human Services that it was unsafe to take her back to the village, given that her alleged rapist was released on bail.

The man was arrested by Cove and John police, but the girl’s relative said he was released on $100,000 bail. According to the girl’s relatives, she was alone on the day in question when the neighbour, a man believed to be in his 30s, evidently scaled the fence and entered the house through the window. The girl told her relatives that the man confronted her while she was in the kitchen. He offered her Banko wine and the drink “Sting.” The girl also told her relatives that she saw him pour into the drink a white substance.

He thereafter performed sexual acts with the young woman. After the act, he forced the young woman to drink insecticide which the family had in the house to control insects. After the man made good his escape, the young woman cried out for help and attracted the attention of neighbours who then investigated the matter. The neighbours thereafter called the Cove and John Police who arrested the man. However, the family is angry that the man has been released on bail.

When the girl was taken to the hospital, the matter was drawn to the attention of the Ministry of Human Services, under which falls the Child Care and Protection Agency. As a result, the family says officials of the Ministry have said they would not release the girl to go back home just yet.

The whole fricken country needs to be fumigated. I have never read so many horror stories coming out of Guyana than what have been ALLOWED to happen and encouraged by Fagdeo and his buggering nasty dogs who are given free reign to descend to the pits

When will Fagdeo go after these known rapists who have been abusing the children daily, instead of passing judgement against Sharma when he has paedolphiles working right in his office.

I can see now why some people have been saying that Guyana got nuff funny fellas running the country -- they have now taken over the burial grounds to carry out their funny acts!
