Guyana will continue to import oil from the existing supplier, Petrotrin, while at the same time markets in non-Caricom Caribbean Islands are still up for consideration.A paper on approaches to mitigate supply disruptions was recently approved by the board of directors of GEA for Cabinet’s review, Chief Executive Officer, Guyana Energy Agency (GEA), Dr Mahender Sharma told the Government Information Agency (GINA).These approaches entail the identification of other markets, as well as mechanisms for improving storage capacity. Upon receipt of Cabinet’s approval of the paper, the recommendations would be pursued. This will help to satisfy the country’s demand for oil.Sharma explained that energy security concerns have been brought to the attention of the Caribbean Community (Caricom) Council for Trade and Economic Development (COTED) through several for a, particularly the 60th and 61st Special Meetings of COTED held this year.Currently, applications to purchase oil from other sources are made on a case-by-case basis following notification from Petrotrin in Trinidad and Tobago, on the availability of supplies.Approval for purchasing oil outside of Caricom has to be granted by the organisation. Participating member states want a more proactive approach in having the Common External Tariff (CET) for selected oil products imported reduced to zero percent, Sharma explained.COTED is in the process of reviewing CET and this study would inform further development in this regard. The Trinidad and Tobago Government and Petrotrin have committed to provide advance notice of product availability on a three-month basis, through an agreement with COTED as a means to guide short-term planning.Guyana has overtime experienced fuel disruptions from Petrotrin resulting in major oil companies having had to import from alternative regional and extra-regional sources. In efforts to mitigate local shortages, the Government sought waivers of the CET levied imports from outside of the region through COTED.The inconsistency in product availability due to unexpected shutdowns over the past three years has been the cause for considering alternative markets within and outside of the Region. COTED promotes trade and economic development of the Caricom and oversees the operations of the Single Market and Economy.

Omar ShariffOmar Shariff, former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of the Presidency, who was in 2017 charged for non-compliance of a production order issued by the High Court, was on Tuesday placed on $1 million surety by Magistrate Fabayo Azore, which enabled him to retrieve his travel documents in order that he could complete his law studies at the Hugh Wooding Law School in Trinidad and Tobago.Shariff’s attorney, Sanjeev Datadin, in a bail application, told the court of his client’s willingness to lodge his passport and other travel documents after completion of studies overseas.Shariff was, however, ordered to lodge his passport at the court when he returns to Guyana. The case has been adjourned to September 17, 2018.RecapShariff, who allegedly had amassed some $20 billion in business funds between 2005 and 2015, was arrested in July 2016 in connection with allegations relating to one of the largest money laundering and tax evasion schemes in the history of Guyana.Shariff was sent on annual leave on July 1, 2016 by Minister of State Joseph Harmon following investigations launched by SOCU, and his services were terminated with effect from December 31, 2016.The court had, in 2016, issued an order which required Shariff to provide certain documents to the Special Organised Crime Unit (SOCU), but he had violated that order.He was released on self-bail after pleading not guilty to the charge. A condition attached to his being placed on bail required him to report to SOCU every other Monday.
The N.E. B.C and Yukon Trackers took part in an icebreaker tournament over the weekend to shake off the rust from the offseason and prepare themselves for the year ahead. The squad finished with a record of 2-2 and had head coach Shawn Brinsky feeling positive and upbeat with their play and results over the games.“I thought we played well actually. I was pleasantly surprised. I was fearful given the unfamiliarity with all the kids with each other that we would struggle getting any type of unified system or structure in place. In some cases that did happen when we started to get into penalty killing scenarios you could see our lack of structure was our achilles heel. However for the most part our ability to compete and skate with some of those teams was evident and it made the future for us look promising I believe,” he saidDespite being happy overall with how his club did, Brinsky preached to his players afterwards the need for discipline as it hurt them in a couple of games at the tournament, and will continue to hurt them in the regular season if the parade to the penalty box doesn’t stop.- Advertisement -The Trackers will next be on the ice for a double header against Prince George in Chetwynd Saturday and Sunday. It’s estimated the team will have to make another two to four cuts prior to the start of the regular season.
Mauricio Pochettino will be wary of a familiar foe when Tottenham play Sunderland and in-form striker Jermain Defoe.Defoe, who has had two spells at Spurs, has scored five times in his last two games for the Black Cats, including a hat-trick in the midweek win at Swansea.“A great player, a top goalscorer. His quality is great. It’s not new for us,” Pochettino said.Spurs, seeking their own striker to relieve the goalscoring burden on Harry Kane, are aiming to respond from their midweek loss to Leicester against a side they beat 1-0 in September.Since then Dick Advocaat has been replaced by Sam Allardyce and Pochettino can anticipate how the former West Ham boss will shape his side.“He has time to improve in the way he wants to play, (it was) a long time ago that we played (at Sunderland),” the Spurs boss added.“All the teams Allardyce has managed are very tough. (But) you need to be careful with all the opponents.“Always in the Premier League games are very tough. We will expect another tough game against Sunderland.”Allardyce’s sides have a reputation of being difficult to break down, particularly away from home.Pochettino must be hoping for a repeat of the response from the prior defeat, to Newcastle, when Spurs went on a three-match winning run.He recognises Spurs must get better in every area of the game.“We need to improve in all areas and all aspects,” he said.“For me football is about a lot of things, not only one, because it’s a collective effort, collective game. It’s impossible to speak of only one thing.” Jermain Defoe celebrates scoring for Sunderland 1
MEXICO CITY – President George W. Bush asked Congress on Monday to approve a $1.4 billion aid package over the next two years to help the Mexican government fight narcotics traffickers, who have unleashed a bloody underworld war that has left more than 4,000 dead across Mexico in the last two years. The plan calls for the United States to give Mexico $500 million over the next 12 months to provide training for police and tools to dismantle drug cartels, including helicopters, surveillance planes, drug-sniffing dogs and software to track cases. An additional $50 million would go to Central American countries for the same purposes. The United States would also provide advisers to help vet police recruits, establish a witness protection program and set up citizen-complaint offices to cut down on the endemic corruption in Mexican police forces, State Department officials said. Thomas A. Shannon Jr., the assistant secretary of state for Western Hemisphere affairs, said the initiative was intended to bolster the administration of President Felipe Calderon as it continues an unprecedented crackdown on organized crime. Since taking office in December, Calderon has sent tens of thousands of troops into towns once controlled by drug cartels to restore order, extradited several well-known drug kingpins to the United States for prosecution and stepped up seizures of cocaine, guns and illicit cash. The result has been a violent backlash from criminal organizations. “We are at an important moment when organized crime presents a real threat to democratic governments in Central America and Mexico,” Shannon said. Billed as a “security cooperation initiative,” the agreement grew out of talks Bush held with Calderon last March in Merida, Mexico. Before and after the meeting, the Mexican president said that the United States did too little to reduce demand for drugs and to stop the flow of arms and cash southward into Mexico. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
