Moving a dredge in the river should be supervised by the maritime administration

Dear Editor, It is so sad to know that tragedy struck Guyanese and foreigners visiting Bartica on Monday, August 1. Delta Guided River Tours had about 24 tourists who wanted to see the beautiful Marshall Falls and rapids, but because of careless miners pushing a ‘dragga’ (dredge) across the  rapids with a wire rope which was lying in the water, the Delta tourist boat propeller became tangled up and the engine stalled.

‘A flaw in legal reasoning’

Dear Editor, I refer to a letter written by Mr Christopher Ram and published in Stabroek News on August 3, under the caption ‘Has Mr Nandlall offered cautionary advice to his client?’ This letter appears to be a response to a letter of mine published in Stabroek News on August 1, where I wrote as attorney-at-law for the plaintiff in the case in which Mr Kissoon, the editor and the publishers of the Kaieteur News are the defendants.

How effectively are public service entities responding to their NIS commitments?

Dear Editor, Your editorial (SN, August 2) on the vulnerability of the NIS, from a number of perspectives, is most timely and invites serious attention towards stimulating the sustainability of this institution’s vital contribution to the social well-being of so many beneficiaries, including in particular pensioners; and to a significant extent also, working female single parents.
