first_imgDeadly Camp Street Prison riotBy Shemuel FanfairThroughout the execution of its mandate, the Camp Street Prison Commission of Inquiry (CoI) observed the need for continuous revision and updating of the nation’s laws. To this end, the CoI report has given recommendation for the revival of the Law Revision Commission (LRC). Established in 2014, the LRC, a body within the Legal Affairs Ministry, was tasked with ensuring that there was continuous revision of the Laws of Guyana.“The work of the [Camp Street Prison] Commission in a number of instances revealed a need for the constant updating of our legislation. Formerly this problem was addressed by a Law Commission whose job it was to look at the body of legislation that is current and tailor it for the exigencies of the future…the Commission is, therefore, recommending resuscitation of a standing Law Revision Commission,” an excerpt from the report stated.According to the Law Revision Act, Chapter 2:02, the Law Revision Commission is meant to have a chairman and no more than four other members whose functions shall be to: “prepare, publish, and maintain in accordance with this Act an edition of the laws of Guyana…”The CoI report suggested that unsystematic partial measures must not be employed when the Statues are being amended.“Piecemeal patching up of the Statutes of the State is to be discouraged,” the CoI added.The Prison CoI also stated that Sentencing guidelines must be formally approved, publicised, disseminated before being enforced.“Judges and Magistrates must be trained in application of sentencing guidelines,” Commissioners further observed.It was also recommended that judges and magistrates see visitation rights of prisoners as part of their obligation, adding that visits to prisons by the judges and magistrates must be viewed as a constitutive and obligatory aspect of their duties.The Commission also pointed out that there must be a minimum number of visits per year and that the Chancellor and Chief Justice should establish, implement and monitor these stipulations.It was also noted that the release of prisoners, who are on remand should be automatically released once the time served equals the sentence which the offence would have attracted. Further, maximum limits for the time in which inmates are on remand should be taken into consideration.It has been suggested that the high number of prisoners on remand is responsible for overcrowding in the Prison system. Figures released by the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) demonstrate that 258 prisoners were remanded by magistrates at the end of February 2016.Other recommendations to ensure reduction of overcrowding included the resolution of legal issues required, the abolishing of Preliminary Inquiries (PIs) as an urgent priority of the judiciary; a robust programme of community-based sentencing alternatives and a piloting of alternative and community-based sentences should be undertaken with women and juvenile offenders.The CoI came as a result of the deadly Camp Street prison riot in which it is believed inmates lit several fires which resulted in the death of 17 of their fellow prisoners.last_img read more

first_imgCLEVELAND – Even in a game Friday where Kobe Bryant scored 25 points and missed more shots than he made, the Lakers showed how desperately they miss the superstar guard when he is not on the floor. Although Bryant sat for a combined 5 minutes and 11 seconds, the Lakers were outscored 15-2 in that time. Lakers coach Phil Jackson has been playing a lineup of Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic, Maurice Evans and Ronny Turiaf with starter Lamar Odom when Bryant has gone to the bench. “I’ve been leaving Lamar out there with them,” Jackson said. “I think I’m going to stop that. Just let them go really on their own because they play really well and move the ball well and I’ve saddled them with Lamar. It’s been unfortunate. He’s not been carrying the load.” Jackson also will have to decide today in Cleveland whether to start forward Vladimir Radmanovic, who was benched for the final 21 minutes of Friday’s loss in Toronto. The Cavaliers start two guards alongside LeBron James. Jackson said he would open today with Bryant against Larry Hughes. Radmanovic missed all four shots he took Friday and struggled to guard the Raptors’ Chris Bosh. He said Saturday: “I don’t have a big credit with the coach. I’ve got to get my stuff straight before he makes some changes.” Even with the Lakers more than 50 games into the season, Radmanovic still is searching for answers. He said he is not bothered by the hand injury he suffered in training camp. It’s more a matter of getting off to a good start when he plays. “It’s been a tough season,” Radmanovic said. “I’ve probably played the last minutes (of games) my whole career. It’s been frustrating. I’m just trying to be a team player right now and put my agenda on the side. Just have the game come to me. It’s been tough but I don’t want to force anything.” center_img WALTON OUT With his sprained right ankle struggling to improve, forward Luke Walton will be re-examined Monday in Los Angeles by specialist Kenneth Jung. Walton won’t play today and is likely out through the all-star break, Jackson said. Walton, who has missed eight games with the injury, tried to do some running Saturday but said his ankle was still “throbbing” whenever he tried to push off it. “It’s frustrating not being able to play,” Walton said. “I thought I would be able to play on this road trip. Now it’s just not going to happen.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.That’s why we must reform this presidential-nomination system that has finally run itself amok. This column will propose the one reform that can make us all relevant again – without giving any regionally based candidate an overwhelming regional advantage. It’s called “time zone” primaries and caucuses. And we’ll get to how they work – after we review just how amok things have been run. Here’s what has happened: A few politicians in a handful of states have decided to play a political game called Campaign Calendar Leap-Frog. Just to make themselves and their states seem important, they have leaped their state’s caucus/primary dates ahead of the original dates for the two traditional first contests – the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. The Calendar Leap Froggers to date: Florida, Michigan, South Carolina and Wyoming. So Iowa leaped still earlier; its first presidential caucus will be Jan. 3, 2008 – and it may be in 2007! New Hampshire will leap any day now, to either the beginning of 2008 or end of 2007. Seven states will vote in January. On Feb. 5, 2008, there will be 22 state primaries and caucuses. But it will be a hodgepodge and nightmare for candidates, as California and New York will be voting that day and candidates will be stretched too thin, having to crisscross the nation in a gigantic waste of the precious resources of special interests that lobbyists have stuffed into their piggy (see also: pork) banks. We will almost surely have our two major-party presidential nominees chosen before winter has waned. And they will have eight long months when the candidates will be trash talking, attacking or boring the bejabbers out of us before Election Day. By Martin Schram You may think that this is the election when you’re finally going to be a gung-ho political activist. A stir-’em-up conservative. A shake-’em-up liberal. A straight-ahead independent. Ready to volunteer to work the phones or the blogs. Whatever it takes to help your presidential candidate carry your state. But you are so gung-ho that you don’t realize that you’ve just been gung-had. In the 2008 presidential sweepstakes, you have been banished to the ranks of the Silent Majority. Make that the Silenced Majority. The System is saying the presidential nominees will be chosen earlier than ever – way before you and your state ever get to vote. This may be even worse: With caucus/primary season starting Jan. 3 or (insert your own expletive) in December 2007, candidates will be campaigning desperately through the holiday season. Conjure this: slash-and-burn attack ads pouring out of the TV, sandwiched between “Silent Night,” “God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen” and “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel” (that Hanukkah hit by the Three Tops). True believers will be tugged from campaign negativity to the Nativity. By day, shopping mall Santas will be asking children if they always tell the truth; by night, politicians will be on the tube, making the kids look saintly by comparison. It’s time to reform. The National Association of Secretaries of State has endorsed a system in which Iowa and New Hampshire would go first, followed by four regional state primaries/caucuses – Northeast, South, Midwest and West – on the first Tuesday of March, April, May and June. The date when each region votes would be selected in each election year. But this has one major negative: A candidate who is strong regionally but weak nationally could have a huge advantage if her or his region votes first. But there is a way to avoid that built-in regional bias: design the regions according to time zones. With the states grouped according to time zones, there would be no traditional regional bias. For example, no Southern regional vote. Georgia and South Carolina would vote with Pennsylvania, New York and Maine. So, too, Minnesota and Texas. New Mexico and Montana. California and Washington state. If this notion seems a bit familiar to some loyal readers, it may be because this columnist has been pushing the idea since 1988 – which gives a reader an accurate insight into this column’s powerful influence. But the time for reform is today. In fact, it was yesterday. This year it looks like we are in for a holiday of glad-handing, glib-promising candidates trying desperately to march in step with the Little Drummer Boy’s pa-rum-pum-pum-pum.

first_imgFormer Chelsea and West Ham striker Carlton Cole believes the Blues should keep hold of Diego Costa despite Antonio Conte telling the striker he was no longer wanted at the club.The Spanish international appeared to be on his way out of the club after the bust-up with his manager but the Blues have found it difficult signing a suitable replacement.Their number one target, former forward Romelu Lukaku, is on the verge of joining Manchester United in what was a bitter blow to Conte and his plans for next season.However, Cole – who now plays for Indonesian side Persib Bandung – doubts Lukaku has the same winning mentality that Costa has, underlying the Spanish striker’s importance to his current club.“They need to keep hold of Diego Costa. I think he brings something to the team – he brings that aggression up front that no defender likes playing against,” the ex-England international told talkSPORT 2.“Lukaku is a great player and everything but has he got that winning mentality that Diego has got? I don’t know.“I suppose he can score goals if he’s in the right team and, if you play to his strengths he will score goals, but with Diego you can put him in any situation and he will try 100 per cent – because he’s got that tenacity about him.“That’s the way I look at it and they will miss Diego if he goes.”While it could be safely assumed Diego Costa doesn’t feel wanted at Chelsea, Cole believes the situation could motivate the forward.“I think it should do because as a footballer you are a proud person especially as a striker,” Cole explained.“If you think you have done well enough, and they are still having a go at you and saying we will let you go now, that should spur you on to do even better and be the man you are supposed to be.“But I think it could be a plus for Chelsea if he stays.”last_img read more
