GCAA orders Ogle Airport to halt protocol passes

first_img…after Canadian security official escorted Charrandas Persaud to plane…OAI says no security breach occurredThe Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has ordered that the Eugene F Correia International Airport stop issuing protocol passes after former parliamentarian Charrandas Persaud was escorted by a Canadian Embassy security officer to a Barbados-bound plane after he voted against the Government in the December 21, 2018 no-confidence motion.Reports are Persaud, who had expressed fear for his life after having voted against the Government, had contacted the Canadian embassy for assistance. Persaud, a Canadian citizen, was subsequently granted security assistance to the Eugene F International Airport where he boarded a plane bound for Barbados and subsequently went onto Canada.On Monday, Ogle Airport Inc (OAI) said that it has not breached any security protocols at the Eugene F Correia International Airport as was erroneously reported in the state media.According to the entity, in the administration of the airport, it is instructed and guided by its Airport Operations Manual approved by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority.The OAI stated that Charrandas Persaud was a passenger on LIAT flight #LI 392 which departed the Eugene F Correia International Airport at 06:17h on December 22, 2018.The airport authority stated that Persaud’s escorts were Mission Security Officer of the High Commission of Canada, Richard Beliveau and Peter Ramsaroop.According to the OAI, Beliveau presented himself and his Ministry of Foreign Affairs ID Card to the airport duty officer and requested a pass to accompany a passenger to the aircraft. The OAI stated that Peter Ramsaroop also requested a pass saying he was part of Beliveau’s party. The Airport Duty Officer, in accordance with an established courtesy practice, as is requested to be extended to diplomatic personnel by the Foreign Affairs Ministry, granted a Protocol pass to both persons. The passes were duly returned in exchange for their respective ID documents on their departure from the airport.“Both Mr Beliveau and Mr Ramsaroop as well as Mr Charrandas Persaud, were subjected to full and complete screening before entering the departure lounge in accordance with the requirements of the Aviation Security Programme approved by the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority,” OAI stated on Monday.Meanwhile, Ramsaroop has since said that he only accompanied the former AFC member since he was fearful for his life.On December 21, the no-confidence motion brought by the Parliamentary Opposition –the People’s Progressive Party (PPP/C) – against the Government succeeded when former APNU/AFC MP Persaud broke ranks and made a conscience vote in favour of the motion.After voting in favour of the no-confidence motion, Persaud’s life was threatened twice; he was hit by both colleagues flanking him as well as received many explicit comments within a five-minute period.This was all done while the National Assembly broadcasted the sitting live on its website. The video which is up on the Parliament website showing clearly what transpired. Persaud received the hostile treatment from his colleagues after he voted his conscience and sided with the Opposition’s motion.During the final part of the 03h:51m:04s video, during the second part of the debate, when Persaud delivered his first “yes”, all hell broke loose. He received the first punch on his left arm, at 03h:33m:04s in the video, by an APNU MP who insisted that Persaud “can’t vote against the Government.” This was followed by a series of expletives by the same MP and surprisingly Persaud received another punch from another APNU MP at 03h:32m:28s in the video.Then came the issue of death threats to Persaud. If one listens to the video, you will find that at 03h: 33m: 04s and 03h: 35m: 35s in the video, he receives the threats “Charrandas you gon dead tonight” and “Charrandas you want dead tonight” respectively. It sounded as though the threats came from a female MP on the Government side of the benches.Despite being accused of being a traitor, Persaud maintained that it was a vote of conscience since he is disappointed in the direction his party is heading. He pointed to the recent statements made by People’s National Congress (PNC) Chairperson Volda Lawrence during which she indicated that she only has friends in the PNC and jobs will be made available for them. That statement, he said, infuriated him, prompting him to write a letter to the AFC’s Executive to make a statement but the party’s leader Raphael Trotman came out in her defence after which she apologised.last_img read more

Ingwe mull coaching changes after poor run

first_img0Shares0000AFC Leopards head coach Marko Vasiljevic during a training session at the Jakaya Kikwete Memorial Park in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 20, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 4 – Kenyan Premier League side AFC Leopards is considering a radical change within the technical bench after a torrid run of results, Capital Sports understands.AFC suffered a third defeat in four games after a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Bandari FC in Mombasa on Sunday, and it appears the club’s Executive Committee is moving in to salvage the situation with a shake-up of the technical bench. This might see the exit of Serbian tactician Marko Vasiljevic, barely two months into the job. Rumor has it that he might be demoted to the post of an assistant if a more senior coach arrives, but all that is yet to be decided.“The truth is that the executive is considering making changes in the technical bench because of the current results. Probably even before the game against Gor Mahia on Saturday, we might see a new person in the bench either as coach or otherwise,” a source within the club confided.The 25-year old Vasiljevic took charge after was-to-be coach Nikola Kavazovic ditched the side to move to Free State Stars in South Africa. Vasiljevic was supposed to be Nikola’s assistant, and was elevated once the latter went to South Africa.And now, it has emerged that the youthful tactician might have lost the dressing room at Leopards with a section of the club’s executives questioning some of his decisions and relationship with some players.AFC Leopards head coach Marko Vasiljevic feeds instructions to his players during a training session at the Jakaya Kikwete Memorial Park in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 20, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“In my opinion, he might be too inexperienced for this job. In terms of tactics and all, he is okay, but remember this is his first job as head coach and he has so far failed to sustain the pressure,” the source further stated.He added; “Also, his relationship with some players is not good. There are players he has not used purely because he does not like them. The likes of Ndayishimiye (Eric), Oruchum (Christopher), Mawira (Joshua), Baker (Lukooya) are not playing and when he is asked he says they are yet to adapt to his style,”“We had Oduro (Isaac) injured in Tanzania, but he chose to play Kipyegon (Isaac) in central defense while we have Oruchum and Mawira who are first team players. Maybe, just maybe, managing a big team such as Leopards has proved tough for him.”Ingwe are placed 15th in the KPL standings with 10 points, having won only twice in 10 games and are only three points shy of the relegation zone.They face arch rivals Gor Mahia on Saturday at Kasarani and another loss here will see them sink further in the standings.It has been rumored that former coach Dennis Kitambi who is currently back at his native home in Tanzania might be one of the candidates for the top job.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
