Gaming Authority investigation has a place to start

Dear Editor,

I acknowledge and indeed am grateful for Mr Roysdale Forde’s public recognition of the Gaming Authority’s obligations to keep confidential, information that has been submitted to it.

A careful reading of my letter to Mr Forde and my comments on this issue published in the press will confirm that I did not “impinge on the integrity of the Gaming Authority”, as Mr Forde asserts. All I did was to request an explanation from Mr Forde as to how documents submitted to the organisation of which he is the Chairman, had reached the hands of unauthorized strangers, to wit, the Guyana National Newspapers Limited, the Editor of the Chronicle Newspapers and the Attorney General. This is a request which I am professionally obliged to make on behalf of my clients.

Now that Mr Forde has denied that the Authority ever made these disclosures, it is incumbent upon him to launch an investigation in respect of how these documents left the custody of the Gaming Authority, lest he himself exposes the integrity of Gaming Authority to the ‘impingement’ to which he refers. He must appreciate that in the circumstances a bare denial would not suffice.

The consummate professional that I know he is, I am sure that Mr Forde is aware that a member the Authority is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Guyana National Newspapers Limited. I will be bold to suggest that that may be a direction in which the requested investigation should focus, at least as a start.

 

Yours faithfully,

Mohabir Anil Nandlall, MP

Profoundly concerned about Town Clerk King’s understanding of the workings of Chap 28:01, general domestic law

Dear Editor, The Town Clerk’s letter of February 16, 2018 in SN, `As Town Clerk I only act on the basis of legal authority’ is  yet another demonstration of his disqualification for office.

Political leaders on both sides need to take responsibility for the current oil and gas agreements

Dear Editor, The media need to be commended for its continuous effort in bringing to the Guyanese people the truth as it relates to the contracts signed by the Government of Guyana with the oil companies.

Letter by Councillor Kuppen is riddled with inaccuracies

Dear Editor, Please refer to a letter which appeared in the Saturday, February 17, of Stabroek News captioned ‘Town Clerk is in control with the blessing of the Mayor and some Councillors.’ As we examined the contents of the letter written by the Councillor, we recognized that it is riddled with inaccuracies and it is not a true representation of the facts.

Impressed by publication on early childhood development

Dear Editor, Influenced as I am and have been since my early career as a school teacher that the focus of our basic educational pursuits should be both academic and attitudinal, I was recently impressed by a publication I chanced upon in my daughter’s home in Toronto (she herself is a School Superintendent with the Toronto District School Board).
