Dear Editor, A recent visit to the Aurora Police Station to make a report turned out to be very bad for me when instead of this being done, I was severely beaten by a rank (name given) to the extent of suffering a fractured rib.

A OneCard is only retained by a Republic Bank ATM if customer does not remove it at end of transaction

Dear Editor, Reference is made to the letter carried in your April 22, 2014 edition captioned, ‘What systems do banks have in place to assist a customer whose card remains stuck/lost in the machine during a non-working day?’ We advise that Republic Bank OneCards are only retained at our ATMs if a customer does not remove the card from the machine when prompted to do so at the conclusion of a transaction.

The end should justify the means

Dear Editor, As a concerned Guyanese, the debate on the Budget, televised on NCN, gave me an opportunity to assess the efforts of the current members of the National Assembly and, without undue modesty, I was amazed that more attention was paid to their personal sartorial image than the special skills and savoir-faire required for membership of that august body.
