– workers sent homeOver 180 punts of cane were destroyed by arson as protests over inadequate remuneration in the sugar belt spilled over to West Demerara, crippling the Wales Estate.The cane was reportedly set alight on Monday afternoon and the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo), Wholesale Jerseys, stands to suffer untold losses as the final crop of the year undergoes a torrid beginning.Kaieteur News understands that several persons were seen by the GuySuCo security personnel shortly before the fire completely engulfed five fields of sugar cane.The destruction of the cane came in the midst of a stifling strike by cane cutters, and this has forced the estate to completely shut down its entire operation.According to a source, Wholesale Jerseys From China Supply, all the field and factory workers have been sent home until further notice and the only workers remaining on the estate are the security personnel, Nike NFL Jerseys China, medical and some clerical employees who are responsible for preparing payments.The source pointed out that should the cane cutters not return to work soon, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, more staff will have to be sent home.“The estate is already in a very bad shape and the demands being made by the cane cutters is really taking a toll, ” the source saidKaieteur News understands that a meeting between the union representing the striking cane cutters, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China, the Guyana Agricultural & General Workers Union (GAWU) and the management of the GuySuCo Wales Estate was held on Monday and it was agreed that work will resume after the sugar estate adjusted from its initial position.However, Wholesale Jerseys From China, yesterday none of the cane cutters turned up.“Most of the workers sent home yesterday are members of GAWU, and they too will feel the effects of the stance taken by their cane cutter colleagues. The sugar estate cannot sustain those people who are not on strike, Wholesale Jerseys China, ” the source told Kaieteur News.This newspaper understands that the happenings at the Wales Estate have not been highlighted, since strikes have been occurring on and off since the start of the crop.The cane cutters are claiming that a higher wage should be paid since the fields are full of obstacles (weeds, etc.), and have to be cleared in addition to the manual harvesting of the sugar cane.The present situation at the Wales Estate appears worse than the out-of-crop season, when most of the workers are laid off.According to a senior GuySuCo official, soon the estate will have to remove all of its equipment from the fields, and this could signal the possible closing of the estate.

Region Eight Chairman, Wholesale Jerseys China, Mark Crawford is concerned that many school-aged children residing in Mahdia are “ditching” school to earn a living in the “gold bush”.During a recent interview with this publication, Nike NFL Jerseys China, he explained that when miners would have completed their activities, Wholesale Jerseys, children go into the mines and extract the mineral from tailings.He stressed that as the sector continues to expand, the area’s truancy rate is increasing, even though the School’s Welfare Officer is consistently trying to have children return to the classroom.Crawford stressed that truancy may remain a challenge unless the population’s belief that mining is more profitable than acquiring a formal education changes. He suggested that the school’s curriculum should involve mining to match the needs of the people.

Early yesterday morning, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys, former beauty queen Carol Ann Lynch, in the company of lawyers, Wholesale Jerseys From China Supply, turned herself in at the Brickdam Police Station to face the charge which was long set to be reinstituted against her.In 2007, Lynch had been accused of killing her husband, former Swiss House Cambio Managing Director, Farouk Razac, but the charge was discharged in 2008 by the then Magistrate Gordon Gilhuys.And in 2010, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had recommended that the murder charge be reinstituted against her. Since the 2008 discharge, Nike NFL Jerseys China, the reinstituted charge is yet to be read to Lynch.Despite the wanted bulletin issued for her arrest, Lynch, who once held the title of Mrs. South America, had managed to evade the police for the last three years. However, Wholesale Jerseys China, on Tuesday she had announced her intentions to come forth to face the charges and clear her name through what she had hoped would be a speedy court hearing.Conversely, after presenting herself with her lawyers Peter Hugh and Latchmie Rahamat, Wholesale Jerseys, the matter was set to be called today, much to her lawyers’ dismay.Rahamat, in a brief interview with the press, expressed disappointment with the delay in the commencement of Lynch’s court hearings.“This morning at 9 o’clock we brought Carol Ann Lynch in because there was a wanted bulletin issued for her since last year. Now we are very disappointed at this time.”According to Rahamat, since Tuesday they have indicated that Lynch would have surrendered to the police with the hope that the matter would have been called yesterday.“We were hoping that she would have passed through court today (yesterday) itself, so that this matter… we can have a date fixed for the commencement of the PI. In fact, at this stage we are pleading for this matter to be expedited, ” the lawyer said.Echoing Lynch’s wishes, the lawyer openly beseeched the court to deal with the case in an expeditious manner.“At this time our plea is that this matter be expedited, Wholesale Jerseys From China, because we want this chapter in Miss Lynch’s life to actually be over and done with. This is something that has been hanging over her head for a very long time, ” she stressed.Recapping, Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys China, the lawyer related that “She was discharged by a city magistrate because there was not sufficient evidence for a charge of murder. Now if the advice from the DPP is to recharge, we say ‘okay fine, she is here to answer to the allegation.’”She further challenged the case which has been formed against her client claiming that the court will once again find her innocent of the charge.“Anyone who has had a look at the records of previous proceedings will see that they have no evidence. If they have new evidence show us the new evidence… come with it first to court, ” the Defence Attorney stated.As was expressed by Lynch in her release to this publication, Rahamat also contends that the matter will end as it did in 2008. “We are confident that she will again be discharged, that’s why we are pleading that the matter be expedited, ” expressed the lawyer.The charge which Lynch will once again face had in fact been discharged by the then Magistrate Gordon Gilhuys who cited that the Prosecution at that time had failed to establish a Prima Facie case of murder against her.Reports indicate that on May 7, 2007, Lynch had discovered her husband’s lifeless body on the bedroom floor of their 106 Ireng Place, Bel Air Park, Georgetown, residence. Razac was purportedly found with blood oozing from his mouth.The post mortem showed that the businessman died as a result of “asphyxiation (suffocation) due to possible ligature strangulation.”Four days later his wife was charged with his murder but in 2008, the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) ended when the then Magistrate had discharged the matter, citing insufficient evidence.However, today Lynch will appear before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court to be indicted on the murder charge.
