Revoke licences from businesses involved in TIP – Minister

first_imgThe Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan on Tuesday said he believes that business licences should be revoked from hotel owners who are found guilty of Trafficking In Persons (TIP).He made the statement while addressing the opening ceremony of a three-day workshop to combat TIP.According to Ramjattan, countries with TIP suspects should share such information with other countries when those persons are travelling so as to ensure the receiving country is alert to detect any unlawful acts in this regard.“Hitting the networks hard, getting the information as to who are some of the suspects, let’s say in Trinidad or Tobago that are the culprits, and forewarning us when they are coming to Guyana, red flagging, all of these are very important things that we would like to see happen so that we can nab them a nip in the bud, long before they start their operations in any country,” he said.He added that an important aspect of combating TIP would be revoking licences from hotel owners when found guilty of condoning the act.“We too must not only do damage to the profit-making, even if it comes to that taking away their hotel licences, when you get the evidence or not granting hotel licences and business licences and so on,” he posited.Ramjattan said that although persons may argue that those jobs and businesses create employment, the repugnance of that type of employment is important to the Government, which wants to be civil.He noted that because TIP is such a large-scale business, a collaborative effort is needed to tackle the issue. “The profits are also utilised to corrupt law enforcement and also because of the vulnerabilities of systems not in place, sometimes even further afield prosecutorial, judicial, magisterial, all those and we have to start,” the Minister noted.The three-day Regional Thematic Meeting which kicked off on Tuesday at the Princess Hotel will focus on Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) and Smuggling of Migrants (SoM) in the African, Caribbean and Pacific States (ACP).In 2010, the ACP group of States and the European Union (EU) launched the ACP-EU dialogue on migration and development.The objective is to provide a dedicated platform for Caribbean stakeholders and beneficiaries to exchange information and experiences on policy implementation with regards to counter-trafficking and counter-smuggling of migrants and identify region-relevant practices among others.At the conclusion of the meeting, a report on Trafficking in Human Beings and Smuggling of Migrants will be produced with the aim of providing an overview of the achievements of the action in the specific region.Earlier this month it was revealed that some 243 persons were trafficked locally.“There were 243 victims and on one occasion they [officials] went to a club…39 were found in small rooms, obviously the presumption [was] that they were being trafficked, and of course, alleged victims under 18, you have 11 out of that 243. The suspects involved, if I may breach some confidentiality of the police here, you have 57 of them,” the Minister divulged during a previous event.He stated that total charges for last year amounted to 36 and all of the other cases are presently ongoing.“Actual TIP charges as a result of those reports we have 23…the numbers of individuals charged for trafficking offences, of course there are some other offences like illegal entry into the country and so on, but actual TIP charges we had 10. For the year 2018 too we had two convictions for TIP; previous years we had zero and one.”He explained that the regions where these cases were found are from Region Four, specifically Georgetown; Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni) and Region Nine (Upper Takutu-Upper Essequibo).last_img read more

Salah may have a hand in Southampton’s goals this season, says Ings

first_img“He proposed the bet on messages when I left. Hopefully we’ll both score plenty of goals. It would be incredible to beat him, wouldn’t it? I’m just working every day to improve.”Ings joined Liverpool in 2015, but his career at Anfield didn’t get going owing to a series of setbacks with his knee and suggested he is not confident of winning his bet. After all, he is competing against a man who scored 44 goals in all competitions last season.“I’ve missed a lot of ¬football. But, of course, it’s not a cash bet. I wouldn’t be stupid enough to put any cash on it. It’s just a bit of banter.“People would think I’m mad to take on that bet if there was cash ¬involved. I don’t have a goals target. I don’t want to limit ¬myself on what I can achieve. As long as we’re ¬winning I’m happy.” Ings has scored two goals in his first four Premier League games Danny Ings says his goal scoring start to life at Southampton is due in part to Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.The 26-year-old joined the Saints initially on loan at the start of the season and revealed he has a friendly bet with his former team-mate on who will score more goals for their club.Ings has scored two goals in his four Premier League appearances, as has Salah so far.“He’s not going to have to buy me a car or anything if I win – although he can if he wants,” said Ings.center_img 1last_img read more

CONFIRMED: CELTIC GO 14 POINTS CLEAR AS RANGERS DEDUCTED POINTS

first_imgRangers have been deducted 10 points after entering administration and failing to pay the British taxman €80M.And it leaves the reigning champions 14 points behind Celtic in the race for the Scottish Premier League title.An SPL statement said: “As Rangers FC is subject to an insolvency event, a 10-point deduction has been applied to its total points in the league championship for the current season. “In addition, Rangers FC is subject to restrictions on the registration of players whilst in administration.”Rangers may now go bust.Rangers, who are now nine points ahead of third-placed Motherwell having played a game more, also face a race to prove to the Scottish Football Association that their finances are in shape before 31 March or face expulsion from Europe next season.Although there is no specific ban on clubs in administration playing in Europe, it would be very difficult for such a club to meet the other financial criteria needed for a licence.  CONFIRMED: CELTIC GO 14 POINTS CLEAR AS RANGERS DEDUCTED POINTS was last modified: February 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgVipers and KCCA clash for the third time this seasonStanbic Uganda Cup FinalsVipers SC vs KCCA FCEmokori Play Grounds, BukediSaturday, 09-06-2018KCCA FC will try and prevent Vipers from achieving the same feat that they managed last season as the two power houses clash in the Uganda Cup Finals on Saturday evening.The Kasasiro Boys won the double last season and with Vipers already crowned league champions, the venoms have a chance to equal the same achievements.The final is viewed as one between the best sides in the country and if you are to use the league standings from this past season as testament, KCCA and Vipers are indeed top of the pile.What the coaches are saying before the game:Mike Mutebi, KCCA FC.Mike Mutebi stressed that Vipers and KCCA are the best two sides in the country“It is one hell of a game, said Mutebi.“These are the two best sides in the country and we need to show that on the pitch.“We you look at the football that both teams play and the players that we have, it’s so difficult to think of any other side as good as Vipers and KCCA.With the referees coming under consistent scrutiny throughout the season, Mutebi also commented about the appointment of Brian Miro Nsubuga as the match centre referee.“Officiation has left alot to be desired throughout the season and some eyes will be on him come game time.“Luckily for both teams, he (Miro) is the best in the country and am confident that after the final whistle, we will not be in position to complain about the officiation.Miguel da Costa, Vipers SC.“It’s going to be a tight match, said Da Costa.“We have played twice against them already and they are very good team.“Before anything, we should think about a good game for all the lovers of the game.“Hopefully, we shall give the fans a good final.“Of course am not going to tell the tactical approach but we are not going to defend with 9-10 men behind the ball, KCCA is a good team Vipers is a good team so we know how to go about it.KCCA will be without several first team players for the game.Strikers Shaban Muhammad and Derrick Nsibambi did not travel with the team.
