Second forestry company fined – reports

A large local logging company was yesterday fined approximately $21 million by the Guyana Forestry Commission (GFC) over similar breaches for which Barama Company Limited was fined $96.4 million last month.

(Barama yesterday agreed to pay its fine [See story on page 3].)

This newspaper understands that the fine was levied at a meeting at the GFC. Efforts to get confirmation as to the name of the company that had been fined proved futile last night.
