The High Court trial of Vindra Siriram was adjourned to April 16 by Justice James Bovell-Drakes, who is presiding over the matter. It was on Tuesday that Siriram denied murdering the mother of his three children, Shelly Ann Persaud at their Friendship, East Bank Demerara (EBD) home in June of 2014. According toThe High Court trial of Vindra Siriram continues later this monthreports back then, Persaud was found with her head submerged inside a five-gallon bucket of water. It was stated that Siriram and Persaud were heard arguing prior to the woman’s death. A post-mortem examination had later revealed that she died as a result of drowning and manual strangulation. The State’s indictment read that Siriram committed the act between June 9 and June 10, 2014, but he entered a plea of not guilty. In September 2014, he was committed to stand trial for the woman’s murder. The defendant is represented by Attorney-at-Law Damian Da Silva while the State Prosecutors are Shawnette Austin and Seeta Bishundial.
The second batch of Police ranks is being trained by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to determine and deal with noise complaints, management and investigation.The trainees during the first day of the Noise Management TrainingThe two-day Noise Management Training is being conducted at the Police Training Centre, Eve Leary, in collaboration with the Public Infrastructure Ministry.During the training, the ranks will be informed of the EPA’s role in environmental protection and noise management, while another session will be conducted on strategies that will be taken for joint noise management between the EPA and the Police Force.On Friday a field exercise was conducted where the ranks used testers to check the level of noise emanating from popular business spots in Georgetown.EPA’s Executive Director, Dr Vincent Adams said that the training is coming along in a timely manner and recommitted his agency’s commitment to assist GPF in tackling noise.According to Adams, the public also has a major role to play in eliminating noise nuisance, which he calls one of Guyana’s most persistent and pervasive issues.“The agency has reaffirmed its commitment to the Guyana Police Force to strengthen their capacity to manage noise emissions. I am proud to say that this training is the second of its kind held with the Force with the first being held in November last where officers from across the country were trained. I look forward to the many more training sessions of this kind in the near future,” Adams said.Deputy Police Commissioner, Clifton Hicken in his brief remarks said more needs to be done to ensure the public is aware of this issue and their rights.Awareness, he added, should not be limited to the social and the printed press, “as a recommendation, we should be moving around as a task force and distributing flyers and using other means that can get across to society because they are the people that are affected or what are some of the hindrances for us to have successful prosecutions because when we ask for statements to support the report, that is not forthcoming and because it is not forthcoming, it looks as if the police aren’t taking the appropriate action. So awareness is necessary, the public needs to know their roles if they need to have the noise pollution issue managed”.Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan implored the ranks to use the knowledge and equipment that they will be given to clamp down on this issue.Fifty ranks were already trained in this capacity in November of 2018, with another batch of ranks expected to be trained in October.

Thomas is simple – not the full shilling as we used to say,” said the source.“I was just shocked and surprised that anyone would give him a penny to invest on their behalf, never mind the sums of money reported in that court case.“The man is completely bonkers. You’d get more sense out of Thomas the Tank Engine.”Elvin, 50, had contested 26 charges. He will be sentenced in March next year.Our source told us: “I don’t know if kids read your website but let’s put it this way. I’d rather invest my money with Santa Claus that Thomas Elvin.“I just cannot understand how anyone could get caught by him.

The remains of the late Tom Gilmartin ar carried to the grave by family members as his wheelchair bound wife Vera looks on.The son of Mahon Tribunal whistleblower Tom Gilmartin said his father never got the apology he was owed by the Irish state.Thomas Gilmartin Jnr received a huge applause at St Michael’s Church in Urris earlier today as he remembered the life and times of his late father. Almost 200 mourners gathered at the picturesque church on the rugged Inishowen Peninsula overlooking Tullagh Bay.Family and friends gathered with locals as Tom, 78, whose wife Vera is a native of the area, was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery.Tom’s son Thomas Jnr broke with the normal tradition to read his eulogy in memory of his father at the start of mass.During his touching tribute to his father, he occasionally looked towards the coffin containing his father. On top of the coffin lay two pictures of a young Mr Gilmartin alone and one with his beloved wife Vera.Thomas Jnr told how his father was touched by corruption from an early age – even before he started his career.“Unfortunately as is very common in the Ireland of the 1940s and 1950s, opportunities to make the most of his God given talents were few and far between.“Nonetheless he managed to get a place in Agricultural college and did so well in his exams that he was told to get ready to com to Dublin to take up a job in the Civil Service.“A short time later he was told that his place had been taken by someone else that had not done nearly as well – but someone that had a relative well-placed.”When he returned from England to work in England he found it was a similar place that he had left all those years ago. “Unfortunately my father was let down by people for whom moral scruples or the type my father lived by was seen as a weakness.“Later he never wavered his commitment to the truth even when subjected to extraordinary pressure.“He would never perjure himself even when it was disadvantageous for him to tell the truth such was his honestly and his religious faith.“Dad loved his country and was a proud Irishman. It truly grieved him as the son of a man who fought for the independence of his country to see the sacrifices of his father’s generation disregarded by lesser men. “It is a source of great sadness to us his family that dad was never truly given the credit he deserved for what he did or the apology he was owed for what was done to him. He deserved better.“But that era was only a drop in the ocean compared to his life as a whole,” he said.A native of Lislary, Co Sligo, Mr Gilmartin spent much of his working life in Luton, Bedfordshire, before acquiring land in west Dublin for a planned shopping centre.His name will forever be linked to a shopping centre, originally planned for Quarryvale, which subsequently became the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre, after Mr Gilmartin was squeezed out of the project.His payments to Fianna Fáil politicians and his allegations of bribery demands from others led to his becoming a key witness in the Quarryvale module of the Mahon Tribunal.Mr Gilmartin latterly lived in Cork with his family.He died peacefully at Cork University Hospital last Friday morning.Thomas Jnr also remember the lighter moments of his father’s life and how he loved only very strong tea – with a “teabag or four.”He revealed how Tom had returned to his native Sligo a year ago for the last time.“Dad always remained a proud Sligo man and took time to tell stories there about his adventures as a young man. And 40 odd years in England did not even leave the slightest trace on his accent.“Going back there last year on what would be his final visit home was a great privilege for my wife and myself. As we walked along the shoreline beside his birthplace it was if as if he was reliving his boyhood and it was very moving to see a mixture of joy and sadness in him as he did.”As he fought back tears, Thomas Jnr added he genuinely thought his father was a one-off.“It is sometimes an exaggeration to say that we will not see someone’s like again. But in my father’s case it is true. He was a one off,” he said.He added that his own life with be a lot quieter and a lot less colourful place without his dad to talk to.“I was blessed to have him as my beloved father”As Tom Gilmartin was lowered to his final resting place, his family including his four children and wheelchair-bound wife Vera dropped yellow and red roses on top of his coffin.The bright floral tributes contrasted starkly to the grey skyline of the Inishowen Peninsula under which Tom Gilmartin was laid to rest forever.TOM GILMARTIN LAID TO REST IN INISHOWEN AS SON SAYS HE NEVER GOT APOLOGY was last modified: November 26th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
