Govt to renew Barama agreement

first_img… awaits word from company on draft contractThe Malaysian-owned Barama Company Limited will likely be granted approval to continue its operations in Guyana when its 25-year Investment Development Agreement comes to an end in October.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman (left) toured the Barama Company Limited facility earlier this yearNatural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman, on Tuesday confirmed to Guyana Times that Government will be moving ahead with the renewal of the agreement.He said Government already dispatched a draft agreement to the logging company and is awaiting its comments on the proposal before wrapping up the deal.“The Barama agreement is still being finalised and a draft has been shared with the company for its review and comments,” he stated.He refrained from providing further information on the matter until a definite decision has been taken.“Until we agree, I won’t want to get into specifics, except to say that we are proceeding and getting nearer to a conclusion,” Trotman stated.In a recent statement, the Natural Resources Ministry explained that a Task Force was established to examine the Company’s request for a continuation of its contract.Cabinet had recommended the convening of a Task Force to examine the request given the rapacious activities of some foreign companies operating in the forests of Guyana.The Government had noted too that some negative observations had also been expressed at the operations spearheaded by Barama.The Task Force met on several occasions and visited Barama’s operations at Buckhall, Essequibo, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).A legal consultant subsequently began reviewing the existing contract, forest concessions and tax incentives, previously enjoyed by the Company, while other members of the team examined critical issues, such as workers’ rights, value added operations and environmental management practices, to name a few.General Manager of Barama Guyana, Mohindra Chand, emphasised the Company’s commitment to continue its operations in Guyana, stating that while it was faced with many challenges, it has no intention to shut down its operations.Barama has invested in excess of US$43 billion in its local operations since its establishment in 1991.Barama’s operations consist of forest management, timber harvesting and manufacturing of various wood-based products, such as plywood, sawn timber and flooring products.It is one of Guyana’s biggest employers, employing approximately 1000 Guyanese.It has been allocated some 1.6 million hectares of the State production forest and has been operating the largest forest concession in Guyana.last_img read more

PHP Captures LFA Inaugural Beach Soccer Tournament

first_imgThe inaugural beach soccer tournament, organized by the Liberia Football Association, ended yesterday with PHP Beach Soccer defeating Power Plant Beach Soccer team 4-3 on penalties in the finals at the Serie A sports pitch in West Point, Monrovia.Both teams defeated their opponents in the preliminary round on Saturday. PHP beat Buzzi Quarters and Power Plant defeated Ambassadors.The two losers played for the third place with Ambassadors beating Buzzi Quarters 5-2.The venue of the game is also known as LEC Plant Sports pitch. The two-day tournament was held on April 30 and May 1.The four teams were PHP Beach Soccer team, Buzzi Quarters Beach Soccer team, Ambassadors Beach Soccer team and Power Plant Beach Soccer team.There were no restrictions on players in any division of the regular LFA league. Two referees handled each game and helped the players to apply the rules.Each team had five players per game, described as five a side, and substitutions were made.The game is played barefoot and it takes much effort to manage through the sand to overcome an opponent.Though there are certain rules different from regular soccer, the two-day competition saw players from the participating teams enjoying the game and pushing their opponents with passes and shots that goalkeepers struggled to punch off-target. For example, Power Plant Beach Soccer, which is from West Point, seemed to have some advantage because they have always played in the sand but they were marched with others who have always played on the beach.LFA vice president for operations, Musa Shannon, responsible for Beach Soccer, was present, along with LFA technical director Henry Bown, his deputy Kaetu Smith and CAF Education officer Coach Francis Tamba.Liberia has registered to participate in the CAF Beach Soccer Tournament to be held in Nigeria, later this year, and the LFA said more games are planned for local beach soccer teams.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

N.Y. subway hero settles lawsuit against his own lawyer

first_imgNEW YORK – A commuter hailed as a hero for saving a teenager who fell in front of a subway train has settled with his own lawyer over lawsuits they filed against each other. Wesley Autrey Sr. had accused lawyer Diane L. Kleiman and her business partner Marc Antonio Esposito, of Marco Antonio Productions, of having him sign an unfair contract that gave them most of any money he earned because of his fame. Kleiman, meanwhile, sued Autrey for legal fees and compensation for damage to her reputation. She denied that she cheated the 50-year-old construction worker and said he made her look like a money-hungry crook. The agreement, called a stipulation, voided all agreements, whether oral or in writing, involving Autrey, Kleiman and Esposito and ended their dueling lawsuits. State Supreme Court Justice Bernard J. Fried signed off on the stipulation and filed it last week.
