Overcrowded prisons pose serious health risk – report

first_imgWhen it comes to health matters, an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) report has found that the overcrowding at Guyana’s prisons put inmates at risk of contracting contagious diseases.Data suggests the importance of reducing prison overcrowdingIt is a situation that the Citizen Security and Strengthening Programme (CSSP) Prison Survey report zeroed in on. Completed and handed over to the Government recently, the report found that 44.1 per cent of inmates had been stricken with the flu and other chest infections.The report states that 8.9 per cent of prisoners had gastro-intestinal problems; 4.5 per cent were affected by tuberculosis; 2.4 per cent suffered from depression and anxiety, 0.8 per cent were infected with HIV/AIDS and the remainder had other conditions such as malaria and chicken pox.“During their stay in prison, 67.4 per cent of inmates got sick. Besides, 45.9 per cent of the inmates said that HIV/AIDS tests were performed on them to verify whether they were infected or not,” the report states, adding that 53 per cent were not tested.According to the report, 80.6 per cent of the inmates, after being diagnosed with an illness, continued to share a cell with other inmates. Approximately 18.1 per cent responded in the negative, while the question was not applicable to the remainder.Meanwhile, the survey found that 46 per cent of inmates were taken to the hospital at some point during their incarceration. This was not so for 53.1 per cent of the prison population, while the question was not applicable for a select few.“In summary, given on the one hand the overcrowded and poor state of facilities, and the scope and type of diseases reported by the inmates, it is very likely that some inmates get sick from contagious diseases.“Authorities should pay special attention, because care and medicines are mostly in place, the overcrowding may be the trigger for the large reported cases of diseases,” the report also states.PopulationAs of January 2017, there were a total of 2043 inmates in Guyana’s five jails, although the largest one – the Camp Street Prison – was subsequently gutted in a fire. At the time, the Georgetown prison had 963 inmates, 521 of whom were on remand; Lusignan had 153, of which 32 were remanded; Mazaruni, 360 and Timehri, 130 inmates, including 28 remand prisoners.All of the prisoners were male, while New Amsterdam Prison had a male prison population of 352 and a female population of 85. One and fifty of these men and 31 women were on remand.In 2016, a fire had raged through the Camp Street Prison and claimed the lives of 17 prisoners. Afterwards, a Commission of Inquiry (CoI), which cost the treasury some $13 million was ordered by President David Granger.According to the report compiled by the Commissioners, the combination of overcrowded, uncomfortable and unhygienic confinement are all ideal conditions for epidemics, for gangs to prosper and to propagate discontent.Moreover, the CoI found that reducing numbers in prisons to manageable levels is the single most important priority for establishing safe, humane and purposeful prisons. In the wake of another fire in July, which gutted the wooden section of the Camp Street Prison, the need to reduce the prison population was further emphasised to the Government.Since last year, Government had received a loan from the IDB to support its Criminal Justice System Project. The key objective of the Project is reducing the prison population.last_img read more

Govt making mockery of CJ’s decision, Constitution – Nandlall

first_imgCourt-ordered Article 106 March 19 elections…engaging in more ‘constitutional heresy’Former Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister Anil Nandlall has accused the David Granger-led Administration of practising “constitutional heresy” by still holding Cabinet meetings but under a different name while ignoring the recent ruling by acting Chief Justice (CJ) Roxane George.Former Attorney General Anil NandlallNandlall said that in her ruling, the CJ stated clearly that in accordance with the Constitution and upon the successful passage of the no-confidence motion, on December 21, 2018, the President (David Granger), as well as the Cabinet, was taken to have resigned.“To circumvent the CJ’s ruling and to subvert the express language of the Constitution, the Government continues to meet and make decisions, but they are not calling those meetings Cabinet, but a ‘Ministerial Plenary and the Secretary to this extra-constitutional body who used to be the Secretary to the Cabinet (Edward Persico), that person is now called Secretary to the plenary,” he explained.MockeryThis move, according to Nandlall, highlights how Government is making a mockery of both the acting CJ’s decision, as well as the express provisions of the Constitution. He reminded that the Constitution provided for an institution called Cabinet and that institution is to advise the President on the direction in which the Government should go policy-wise and in accordance with good governance.He argued, “Cabinet has been disbanded so to speak by the CJ’s ruling and by the express language of provision of the Constitution by the passage of the no-confidence motion. You can’t concoct another agency calling it a name and imbuing it with the power to perform the functions that Cabinet used to be performing. I’ve never heard anything like this, nowhere in the Caribbean or Commonwealth…”The former AG also described the situation as a constitutional travesty.Constitutional heresyPresident David GrangerMeanwhile, in making reference to statements made by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, where he told the press that the plenary of Ministers had the same powers as Cabinet, Nandlall said he disagreed with that reasoning.“Where did they get that from? Where did the plenary of Cabinet Ministers, whatever that amorphous organisation is, is not provided anywhere in the laws. The Constitution creates a Cabinet and it ascribes to Cabinet the functional responsibilities that Cabinet is to perform,” he added.Again, Nandlall said that it could only be seen as constitutional heresy at its worst. His reasoning for this is that all of the decisions which are now being made are unconstitutional and illegal. “At some time they will have to set aside that as illegal and unlawful, because it is,” he stated.Minister Harmon was the first to reveal this information, stating that the plenary of ministers have met as a collective to note contracts from the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) and give approval for various official government appointments.The Minister revealed that the plenary approved diplomatic relations with San Marino, the appointment of a new Indian High Commissioner and a non-resident Ambassador from Kuwait.The plenary gave its consent for the reconstitution of the National Data Management Authority (NDMA); a Value Added Tax (VAT) Appeal tribunal and also approved the Customs and Trade Single Window System Bill 2019. This Bill, Harmon explained, will pave the way for improved processing of data.Harmon defended the meeting of the plenary, noting that such meetings were also held last year. The Minister was asked to explain under which law is a plenary of Ministers authorised to meet and ‘note’ contracts.“The plenaries are an extended Cabinet with all the Ministers included. It is noted that there is in fact a judgement of the court that was made with respect to the Cabinet. That judgement was appealed. But we have not had a stay of the judgement, and as such, we have not held Cabinet meetings.”“Ministerial plenaries are chaired by the President and include all the Ministers. It, therefore, has all the powers that a Cabinet has… the appointment of a Minister, sitting as a Minister appointed in a full meeting with the President has the full authority of the Government to perform his functions.”Government fell to a no-confidence vote brought against it on December 21, 2018. It took the matter to the High Court, but was defeated. The matter is now with the Appeal Court.President Granger and his Government have said they are waiting on the pending legal cases, but Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has already warned that transactions approved by an illegal Cabinet run the risk of not being recognised.last_img read more

‘Keep Your Five Alive’ now set for Thursday start

first_img– fixtures remain the sameOpening night action last Saturday forced into reschedule, Kevin Adonis, organiser of the sixth Annual ‘Keep Your Five Alive’ indoor competition, has now set this Thursday for kickoff in this year’s event.The action is set to be held at the National Gymnasium.According to Adonis, the forced rescheduling was due mainly to his adherence to a mandate from the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) that cautioned against the appearance of players participating in the current Elite League.Adonis said he received from the GFF a letter which, among other regulations governing the tournament, barred all players who’re participating for clubs in the Elite League from appearing for their community teams in his indoor competition.“This recent development ordered by the GFF ultimately forced me to reschedule the opening night from last Saturday to this Thursday, to ensure that teams have the opportunity to discuss the directive set by the Federation in order to avoid any (negative) consequenceof their decisions,” Adonis explained.He said it is unfortunate that the order was not part of an earlier notification he had received from the GFF, because it would have allowed him sufficient time to have discussions with the teams confirmed to participate in the event, so as to avoid the unfortunate cancellation of the previously announced opening night’s action.He, however, disclosed that he intends to meet with the governing body shortly to address all issues related to the requirements stipulated by the GFF, so that further delays or miscommunication would not occur.Teams have been drawn from Georgetown, Linden, Berbice, West and East Bank Demerara and East Coast Demerara, and prize monies in excess of $1million will be up for grabs.He disclosed that thirty-two of the best teams in the country have been assembled, including defending champions West Front Road’s Gold is Money and beaten finalist Future Stars.Among the other teams making the shortlist are: Sparta Boss, Bent Street, Leopold Street and most of the zone champions of the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets’ Competition.In opening night action, Rhythm Stars (Mocha) tackle recently-crowned Berbice Guinness champions Trafalgar, and this encounter will be followed by the clash between Agricola and Broad Street.Kingston then square off against Swag Entertainment out of Linden, before NK Ballers take on Sophia.In the final game of the night, Leopold Street play host to Melanie Damishana of East Coast Demerara.The fixtures for the next two playing days are seen below.On Thursday, July 12, Buxton Diamond engage West Demerara Showstoppers, while the young Uprising team from the East Coast go up against Linden’s Silver Bullets.ESPN then collide with East Coast BV, before Ann’s Grove and North East La Penitence take to the court.The rejuvenated Tiger Bay unit then faces California Square, before Sparta Boss and Tucville bring the curtains down on the evening’s activities.On Saturday, July 14, Albouystown and Upsetters get things going, before Future Stars and Alpha Warriors square off.Back Circle then tackle Kitty Hustlers, before Linden’s Dave & Celena All Stars go up against Bent Street.The reigning champs, West Front Road, then close the night with a clash against Alexander Village.Suggested photo: Action.last_img read more
