US$20M oil bonus…Trotman admits to receiving money for Venezuela-Guyana border controversyBy Lakhram BhagiratIn light of revelations that Government indeed received millions of US dollars in a signing bonus from US oil giant, ExxonMobil, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has called for the resignation of the entire Government after they deceived Guyanese.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo during his budget presentationOn Friday, Guyana Times reported that the Administration was fully aware of receiving the signing bonus granted by the same company, while a request was also made to open an account at the Central Bank to facilitate a deposit.A missive dated September 20, 2016, which was leaked to this newspaper, and addressed to the Governor of the Bank of Guyana has this subject: “Signing bonus granted by ExxonMobil – Request to open bank account”. It shows that Finance Secretary at the Finance Ministry, Hector Butts, had requested that a foreign currency account be opened at the bank in order to receive a deposit in the form of a ‘signing bonus’ to be given by ExxonMobil.The letter stated, “This account should not be treated as part of the Bank’s reserves. Instead, the proceeds should be held in the currency of the deposit, that is United States dollars, and invested in secured interest-bearing securities.”During his Budget 2018 presentation, Jagdeo noted the fact that a special account was set up breaches the financial laws of the country, while adding that the monies ought to have been deposited into the account of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) or the Consolidated Fund.“What we have here is a major scandal. The Government of Guyana took money, large sums of money, in form of a signing bonus and did not tell the people (and) write to put it into a special account, not paid into the Consolidated Fund or into the GGMC. What if a few years had passed? Then someone can easily, because it is not recorded, can easily drawdown monies from this fund. It is illegal! The entire Government should resign now,” Jagdeo noted.Natural Resources Minister Raphael TrotmanJagdeo contended that the funds should have been included in the budget, adding that it was understated by over $4 billion. This, he said, is grounds to call for the withdrawing of the entire 2018 estimates because it translates to being not only fraudulent but also illegal.While pinpointing various newspaper articles, Jagdeo pointed out that both Natural Resource Minister Raphael Trotman and Finance Minister Winston Jordan, have consistently denied receiving such a bonus on several occasions. However, the leaked correspondence came from the Finance Ministry and was copied to Trotman.“If the Minister of Finance knew of this and he deliberately misled this nation in such categorical terms that it is the figment of our imagination, then there must be another motive for trying to hide this money. There must be another motive, Mr Speaker, and I think if he knew and he misled this nation then he should resign,” he said in relation to Jordan.Jordan had previously stated that such claim of a bonus is ‘a figment of the imagination’ and that there is ‘no agreement for any bonus’, adding that the Government did not request such a bonus.“Mr Speaker it’s not only the Minister of Finance who knew of this. This letter was copied to the honourable Minister Raphael Trotman, he too should resign. Because they knew of this signing bonus and they categorically, Mr Speaker, denied it and this was since September of 2016 so over a year this country was in the dark,” Jagdeo added.The Opposition Leader said only a selected few stand to benefit from the oil proceeds under the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change Administration. He also accused Government Ministers of misleading the nation when they cited legal and sovereign implications for their refusal to release the contract with ExxonMobil.He claimed the only thing that prevented the coalition Government’s refusal to release the contract was its lack of transparency and secreted nature. However, the Government has since give in to the pressure and announced that it will release the contract by the end of the year.Bonus to pay for border controversyAfter months of denial, the Natural Resources Minister on Friday told the National Assembly that Government did receive a large sum of money from oil giant ExxonMobil following the signing of the Production Sharing Agreement (PSA). Trotman informed that the money is being used to defend Guyana’s territorial integrity in the border controversy with Venezuela.The Government has been consistently denying receiving the money but a document from the Finance Secretary, Hector Butts, was leaked to the media in which he requested that the Bank of Guyana’s Governor set up a special account to deposit the money.However, Trotman noted that Government remains strong and unembarrassed while noting that the non-disclosure was to protect citizens.During his budget presentation, Trotman said the money was received to safeguard from the reoccurrence of the July 2000 incident, where Surinamese military detained a CGX rig operating in Guyana’s territory.“A certain company, Mr Speaker, handed over a certain sum which I challenge anyone to deny to aid the Government work in defending its rights in any court of law and to advance its diplomatic efforts. So, Mr Speaker, this Government took the advice that was given to the previous Government, we adopted that advice, and yes Mr Speaker, we did work with it to preserve the safety and wellbeing of the people of Guyana and to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial integrity of this country,” the Minister clarified.“Yes there is a sum and yes Mr Speaker, it is reserved to safeguard this country and in matters of State, certain things have to be done and so they were done under then President Jagdeo and so they will be done under President Granger because the State, Mr Speaker, must be protected,” Trotman added.He noted that they are not ashamed that the facts are now coming to light; rather he is very much relieved and reiterated that full disclosure of the contract would be made possible later this month.Trotman also told the House that although Exxon was not obligated to renegotiate the contract once the coalition Government came into office, it was done under better terms.About a week ago, Minister of State Joseph Harmon told reporters at a post-Cabinet press briefing that Government would be funding the legal proceedings from the border controversy.Relations between Guyana and Venezuela have worsened ever since oil giant ExxonMobil announced in 2015 that it had found oil in Guyana. Venezuela has staunchly been against oil exploration in Guyana’s Stabroek Block, where ExxonMobil found multiple oil deposits.In fact, Venezuela’s National Assembly had approved an agreement to reject the oil exploration activities in March 2017.In 2015, the Government of Guyana requested then UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, to take steps toward resolving the controversy. In 2016, because of a stalemate on the matter, the outgoing Ban Ki-moon agreed with his successor, Guterres, to continue to use the Good Offices Process until the end of 2017 as a means of arriving at a settlement.Guyana is relying on the decision that the border controversy over the 1899 Arbitral Tribunal if not resolved by the end of 2017, that the matter be taken to the International Court of Justice, honouring Guyana’s request.
…urges to accept assistance from those without hidden agendaWhile a lot has been said about the need to develop local content in the nascent oil and gas sector, Canadian High Commissioner to Guyana Lillian Chatterjee said the country does not have enough capacity and would need foreign help in this regard.Chatterjee said it is important for Guyanese to develop the skills to eventually be able to manage the oil and gas sector themselves, but noted that “the hard reality is, they don’t have the skills now” and it may take years before that is fully developed.The Canadian envoy therefore believes that while it may be the political correct thing to preach local content, she noted that Guyana will have to learn from others. She noted that at one point, Canada sought expertise of other oil producingCanadian High Commissioner to Guyana Lillian Chatterjeenations for their sector.“So, you have to welcome others who have that expertise, who are willing to share it with you to learn from them. And once you learn from them, then you are in a position to manage your own industry,” she told Guyana Times in a recent interview.The second review of the local content policy is expected to be completed by the first quarter of next year, Business Minister Dominic Gaskin has said.Government recently completed a terms of reference for a consultancy to complete the local content policy based on consultations and a draft, also an implementation plan.Gaskin said it was important for the new legislation to be ‘balanced’, since a ‘too strongly national’ local content policy can jeopardise the efficiency or the viability of the company being relied on to harness the resource.“There seems to be a reticent to accept foreign expertise and Guyana sorely needs it. I hope the citizens of Guyana understand that you accept it from those who are well meaning, who don’t have a hidden agenda,” Chatterjee added.Further, she said Canada is not asking Guyana for a special deals in oil, but rather, the country is here to share its expertise with the Government. “Why? Because Guyana has always been a good solid partner of Canada. We have accompanied Guyana from its independence and we have this good strong history,” she noted.The Guyana government and the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador will be signing a technical cooperation agreement on oil and gas in the coming week. Natural Resources Minister Siobhan Coady will be signing a MoU on behalf of her province with the Government of Guyana for technical cooperation on oil and gas.OwnershipIn recent times, there have been concerns, particularly by the private sector about whether foreign countries and their companies will be allowed to dominate the sector. The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) had expressed worry over the Energy Agreement that the Government signed with Trinidad and Tobago (T&T).According to the GCCI Head Deodat Indaar, Guyanese businesses are already being sidestepped and instead contracts have been awarded to foreign-based companies to benefit from the local oil sector. But the GCCI wants the local Private Sector to get its “piece of the pie” and the Government to create a level playing field for all.As such, the GCCI has put together its own draft local content legislation which was sent to Government and the Opposition. As part of that proposal, it said Guyanese companies must have 51 per cent ownership, the holding of board meetings must be in Guyana, 70 per cent of the staff must be Guyanese and its head office must be located in Guyana.The Chamber lamented over the fact that several of GCCI members had submitted expressions of interest and most of them to date have not received a response. The GCCI, he said, hopes that the Government accepts the document in good faith and puts mechanisms in place so that foreign companies are legally obligated to purchase locally.Meanwhile, the Private Sector Commission (PSC) has also come out stating that it is not against a T&T business presence here but believes that before oil agreements are signed with other countries, Guyana should have an established local content policy.Minister Gaskin has however, warned that Guyanese would not be able to benefit from the local content policy if they were unable to meet the capacity of the oil and gas sector. According to him, capacity development costs should be borne by the industry.He advised that Guyanese should be willing to carry the burden of oil expenditure and not only seek to benefit from oil revenue. Gaskin said despite the fact that oil and gas will provide growth opportunities, persons should not only depend on job opportunities in the sector, but seek to make investments to be part of the industry.The primary aim of the policy is ensuring the education, inclusion, and advancement of as many Guyanese as possible in the industry.The draft local content policy has been criticised in recent months for lacking provisions which would safeguard against exploitation by companies, especially since there have been intensified reports of the local companies being bypassed for contracts and services with foreign companies being favoured. The document does not cater for issues such as how to avoid procurement fraud, conflict of interest and favouritism, among others. (Samuel Sukhnandan)
Higuain opened the scoring in the 44th as Milton Valenzuela collected a long diagonal ball from Artur near the endline and sent a cross back for the Argentina veteran to fire home a shot that Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono couldn’t control.It was a fitting first goal of the season for Higuain, who engineered a series of dangerous Crew attacks in the first half to set the tone for the visitors’ victory.Zardes, acquired from the Los Angeles Galaxy in an offseason trade, doubled the score less than a minute into the second half, sliding a shot past Bono from a well-timed pass from Pedro Santos.That proved enough as Toronto saw two chances go begging in the second half, when Sebastian Giovinco’s curling shot in the 65th minute and Ager Aketxe’s long-range effort in the 78th both hit the woodwork.“Wonderful,” Crew captain Wil Trapp said. “The performance was excellent. The first half was really good, from a possession standpoint, creating chances, defensively being agile.“We did a wonderful job. And then second half we score early. We lost a little bit of the grip, but the intensity and ability to battle through a tough environment, tough team, was excellent.”For Toronto, the deflating defeat spoiled a day that started with a pre-game ceremony presenting the three trophies won by Toronto last season: the MLS Cup, the Supporters’ Shield as the team with the best regular-season record and the Canadian championship trophy.Giovinco thought that look back to the past may have been detrimental.“We continued to show the trophies, to think about what happened last year. This is not good,” he said. “We have to think this year is a very difficult year … “We have to change mentality.”More concerning, Toronto’s Victor Vazquez limped off in the 53rd minute, raising injury worries as Toronto look toward their CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final tie with Mexican side Tigres that begins on Wednesday.Toronto captain Michael Bradley said the team must regroup.“There is no place else to look other than at ourselves,” Bradley said. “This is what a lot of days will be like. We put this behind us quickly, get ready for a huge game on Wednesday.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Federico Higuain opened the scoring as Columbus Crew beat Toronto 2-0 in the first game of the 2018 Major League Soccer season © GETTY/AFP/File / Kevin C.

By Naush Boghossian STAFF WRITER More than a year after rolling out a $10million effort to keep at-risk students in school and to re-enroll those who have left, Los Angeles Unified’s dropout rate has seen little improvement. But the nation’s second-largest school district announced Monday it will expand its anti-dropout efforts to the Internet and radio airwaves and send even more counselors door to door. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityThe new program – “My Future, My Decision” – is a broad effort that includes spots on 105.9 FM, a text-messaging campaign and interaction through popular social networking Web sites MySpace and Facebook. While district officials said they are still waiting for full-year dropout data to be released, the most recent numbers – which include two months under the anti-dropout campaign – show a dropout rate of 25.5 percent or about 1.4 percentage points higher than the year before. “We’re getting a lot of good information from principals and local district superintendents so I would expect to see the (dropout) numbers come down,” said Debra Duardo, LAUSD’s director of dropout prevention and recovery. “We don’t have the statistics for this year to measure how successful it’s been. ? We’ll see in a couple of months ? the impact of their work.” Duardo said the dropout rate increased in the most recent measures because it was the first year in which the state’s Exit Exam was a requirement for graduation, so 12th-grade performance brought down the total average. The ninth, 10th and 11th grades all experienced significant improvements in the dropout rate, but 12th-graders had 52 percent more dropouts compared with the year before. District officials on Monday said they did not know how much the new efforts would cost but said it would come out of the $10 million already allocated to the program. When LAUSD rolled out its Diploma Project in August 2006, the goal was to track about 20,000 at-risk students – even so far as going to their homes to get acquainted with the kids and their parents. This year, district officials said they were able to reduce that to about 17,000 students. Counselor Rochelle Morrison, who works out of Gardena High School, has been visiting students at home since the fall of 2006. “It’s a different approach,” Morrison said about the new campaign. “It could be a way to reach kids. It’s going to help us reach them, but we’re still going to have to do our best to bring them back.” Ultimately, district officials hope to reduce LAUSD’s dropout rate every year. The target for this year is a 5 percent reduction. District dropout rates have been estimated at anywhere from 23percent to more than 50 percent. Under the program, LAUSD has 80 diploma project advisers at 45 high schools and 34 middle schools to work with teachers and at-risk students to determine how to keep them in school – including through independent study, adult education classes or off-campus learning centers. “The message is come back. Come back to school,” Superintendent David Brewer said. “Do not stay out there and become a statistic in our society.” At Watts’ Jordan High School, where the district held the news conference Monday morning, there were about 20 students the dropout counselor was able to bring back to school. Rene Ahal, a diploma project adviser at Reseda High School, said the biggest challenge is that most at-risk students are so far behind in credits by the time they reach high school that they feel helpless. But Ahal said most also don’t know about the options available to them – including making up credits at community college or adult school. And Ahal said she also talks to them about how much money they can make and what kinds of jobs they can aspire to with high-school diplomas. “We expect to see changes, but the program’s only been in effect for the past year,” Ahal said. “Over time it’s going to make a big difference.” Saul Hernandez, 19, said that although he had trouble with drugs in the ninth and 10th grades, he realized he needed to graduate from high school to have a better future. Now, he said he hopes to tell his story through the Internet to help others who aren’t sure if they want to get a high school diploma. “I knew that if I wasn’t going to get a good education, I wasn’t going to make it in life,” said Hernandez, a father-to-be who expects to graduate from high school in June. “It could make a change for other students. They can see us as an example to not be a dropout.” email@example.com Staff writer Paul Clinton contributed to this article.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
