I wonder if persons realize the implications of the recent GHRA press release, especially as everyone knows that the GHRA would have carefully confirmed all information before the release?
Media reports on the matter also speak for themselves, as they would have been sued if the information incorrect.
I am sure everyone knows by now that these men were deliberately charged and fired; court matter deliberately delayed, and the Board of NBS deliberately withheld monies due to the men, even pension — all obviously illegal actions when one just have a fair idea of the laws of Guyana and the NBS rules.
Please ponder over the entire statement of the GHRA especially the following:
“The dropping of charges brings an end to the disgraceful saga in which the careers of the three men have been destroyed.”
“Passing the PI among four magistrates for over four years as a result of prosecution delays must surely constitute something of a record, prompting questions over the real foundations for this case.
“Magistrate Fazil Azeez was reported as having written twice to the DPP, seeking that she withdraw the third charge against Kent Vincent and Kissoon Baldeo, but received no response and was reported as stating “For whatever reason they still want to hold on to it.
I can’t scratch it up. I don’t have that power. Regrettably it has to be heard and I have to give a date”.
“The professional careers of men with previously impeccable records have been terminated and their reputations destroyed by these charges without any evidence being led against them.
A Petition signed by 88 per cent of staff members in support of the three Senior Managers referred to comments made by the Chairman of the NBS Board at the time of the alleged fraud to the effect that he knew that the men were innocent and that none of them had benefited from a penny from the alleged fraud”
“The controversy surrounding this matter merits an independent investigation into how these men, who held three of the top four positions in the NBS, came to be charged in the first place”
Now people of Guyana, if you have a Private Financial Institution and three of the four top people are removed, Directors resign (and wrote to the media about corruption); and replaced by Directors in top Government positions, then the NBS law is changed by the Government so that instead of 50 members required to call a special meeting, about 10,000 now required which means a special meeting cannot be called and the Government can do what it wants with the NBS and the members can no longer question it?
Is it only me seeing a take over here?
The public needs to comment on this especially the revelation of the GHRA report but in the meantime I add my call to the GHRA for an investigation in this entire matter and for the men to be paid.
How can the Board refuse to pay the men, especially pension to which they contributed?
