Duke Blue Devils Jerseys Basil Williams

…as party condemns police actions against protest actionPeople’s National Congress Reform Executive member and Parliamentarian, Basil Williams, says that there must be an inquest into the fatal shooting of Kelvin Fraser of Patentia Secondary School recently.He also said that it is imperative that Police institute the necessary charges given that there is a clear indication of the excessive use of force. He added that the case is a clear indication of why there is need for independence of the coroner.Meanwhile, Amna Ally, of the PNCR lambasted the ranks of the Guyana Police Force over their actions in response to the protest action on Thursday last by friends and relatives of the slain young man.Ally told media operatives during the party’s weekly briefing on Friday, that the unprofessional and irresponsible conduct of members of the Police Force during what she said was the legitimate protest on Brickdam must be condemned by all right-thinking Guyanese.She said that it would have been expected that since it was the unprofessional behaviour of the police that led to the killing of a child and gave rise to the tense situation,Atlanta Braves R.A. Dickey Jersey, “they would have shouldered the responsibility to appease the situation, restore normalcy and demonstrate concern for the family of the victim, and students.”According to the Memebr of Parliament instead of restoring law and order, the police were clearly guilty of incitement to breach the peace and of breaching the fundamental rights of Guyanese citizens.Ally suggested that the demands of the peeved students and relatives were not unreasonable since the people were justly demanding justice as citizens.She said that there must be urgent disciplinary proceedings against the ranks that carried out the acts and adequate compensation for the family be paid.“Statements from the hierarchy of the Guyana Police Force and the government have so far provided no assurance that the incident would be properly investigated.”She said that the failure by the PPPC Administration to act responsibly in the past is not unknown to those citizens and has obviously contributed to the loss of confidence.She cited the example of the fate of University of Guyana student, Yohance Douglas, who was fatally shot by the police on Mandela Avenue several years ago, while three of his schoolmates were seriously injured.“Despite the public statements that justice would have been served, the accused soon walked free…It did not come as a surprise to many since it was public knowledge that, before the trial had concluded, the accused persons, who were supposed to have been incarcerated,cheap nfl jerseys china, were allowed out of the Georgetown prison to walk freely around the city.”She pointed also to the fate of 23-year-old Dweive Kant Ramdass who was murdered by the disciplined forces in the Essequibo River as well as the hundreds of other Guyanese youth who were victims of extra-judicial killing; and, the activities of the “phantom squad” in Guyana,Steven Adams Thunder Jersey, which the Guyana Government refuses to have investigated despite calls from the United Nations.She posited that statements of intention by the Police or Government will have no meaning until and unless there is evidence of action and consequently,Isaiah Thomas Celtics Swingman Jersey, the students and residents are entitled to exercise their rights to protest as guaranteed by the Constitution.“It appears that members of the Guyana Police Force, so accustomed to the flagrant breaches of the laws of Guyana by the PPPC, have forgotten or refuse to accept that the Constitution of Guyana guarantees citizens of Guyana this right.”Indicative of this contempt, she said,Ernie Banks Cubs Jersey, is illustrated is the extensive police barriers around the public buildings when the National Assembly is in session that interferes with the right of citizens to peacefully demonstrate when their representatives are expected to meet and deliberate on their welfare.“The students moved their protest from West Demerara to Brickdam…They were prevented for being close to the Public Buildings or the Ministry of Home Affairs, the Ministry accountable to Parliament for the GPF…The Police forced the protestors further down Brickdam thus creating a crowd.”In light of the actions by the police including the arrests of political activist Mark Benschop along with a driver, “It does not take an expert to conclude that the actions by the police were deliberately provocative and not intended to promote the peace,” according to Ally.“On whose instructions were the police acting…It was obvious to all that the Officers on the scene were not in charge of decision-making…Every action and decision had to be cleared at the top”.She added that, “One would have expected that the recent national and international condemnation of the torture of a 14-year-old at Leonora Police Station would have caused the Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee and the Commissioner of Police to rein in their ranks.“It is obvious that nothing significant has been done to ensure that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) lives up to its motto to serve and protect…Ultimately, it is the Commissioner of Police who is accountable and he would do well to heed the advice of his retiring Assistant Commissioner,Hanley Ramirez Red Sox Jersey, Mr. Paul Slowe.”
