CCJ’S RULING IN SM JALEEL’S CASE: the result of political vengeance

By: Mohabir Anil Nandlall

Attorney-at-Law

This nation continues to reel from the anti-nationalistic and political vindictive ploys, which the APNU+AFC unleashed in the National Assembly as a joint opposition, using their one seat majority, during the tenth Parliament. By this year end, we would have been so close to getting energy from the Amalia Falls Hydro Project at a rate of about twenty per cent (20%) cheaper than the current rates being paid, and then progressively cheaper with the passage of time, had they not killed this project. Guyana’s financial system would never have been penalized with a regime of oppressive sanctions imposed by the Caribbean Financial Task Force (CFATF) and the Financial Task Force (FATF), which is still in force, if APNU+AFC had supported the AML/CFT Bills, which they voted down.

Abel Seetaram has no credibility to judge me or anyone else

Dear Editor,

When credibility is not part of one’s DNA, no one takes that person seriously. And anyone with an ounce of brain or self-respect would know it is not wise to draw attention to oneself. In a letter published in the Guyana Chronicle (May 6, 2017), the discredited AFC mouthpiece Abel Seetaram wrote, “MP Gill not fit enough to talk about Region Five”. This is funny coming from a person who has a reputation of being dishonest, drunk and disorderly, and who, it is alleged, is now being investigated by the police for allegations of fraud. This is the dilemma that the AFC activist, Abel Seetaram faces every time he voices his opinion publicly. Continue reading LETTER: Abel Seetaram has no credibility to judge me or anyone else

OP ED: Blundering Basil get three retired Judges and two law professors to do his job

By Mohabir Anil Nandlall, MP, Attorney-at-Law

Every person, who has ever served in the office of Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, must have felt a profound sense of flattery when they learnt that the current holder of the office was gifted three (3) retired Judges; one from the Caribbean Court Justice (CCJ), one from the Court of Appeal of Guyana and one from the High Court of Guyana; along with two (2) law professors, each possessing a doctorate in law, to assist him in the discharge of the functions of that office. I doubt that I can be contradicted in my assertion that this is a world record. Continue reading OP ED: Blundering Basil get three retired Judges and two law professors to do his job
