The airport and banks must make confidentiality and security top priorities

Dear Editor, I refer to two articles: SN, August 8 ‘Middle Rd family shot at, robbed after returning from airport,’ and KN, August 9, ‘Customer accuses bank guard in $1.5M heist.’ In both cases the means of communication was obviously done by what are now indispensible instruments, namely, cell phones, which were indisputably used clandestinely to perpetrate these well-orchestrated crimes.

The problem is with the interim management of the Paradise co-op society which refuses to give allocation documents unless all monies have been paid up

Dear Editor, I am not sure that Mr Timothy Austin’s comments ‘GWI’s policy is not related to whether a property is fully paid for but to ensure a person has a legal right to contract services’ SN, August 11, where he quotes GWI’s National Revenue Manager Earle Aaron, supports my contention that the residents of Paradise Housing Scheme can justifiably expect to be given a document by the Paradise Multi-Purpose Cooperative Society (PMCS) stating that they have been allocated land in the Paradise/Dazzell Housing Scheme without the precondition that all monies must be paid up.

The Federation of Indian Americans should not be endorsing a Guyanese presidential candidate

Dear Editor, I write this letter in response to the Federation of Indian Americans (FIA) executive member Mr Nirav Mehta’s one (‘India Day Parade invited President Jagdeo to participate’ SN, August 10) in which he sought to repudiate my contention that one of President Jagdeo’s staff sent an email asking that Mr Jagdeo be invited to the India Day Parade and other events.

‘A kind of missile defence system around the PPP’

Dear Editor, Mr Ravi Dev, as his fellow columnist Mr Kissoon declares, is a person of many resources. In his recent column Mr Dev makes the following broad-banded claim: “In Guyana the debate involved opposition elements that insisted the PPP government was a fascist, racist, ‘elected dictatorship’ and that the party supporters, who are generally Indians, were directly responsible for the claimed excesses of the government.” As one who claims that there can be, and is in Guyana an ‘elected dictatorship,’ I find the argument curious.
