Harmon defends Patterson on ‘Grenada 17’ case

first_imgAs criticisms continue to mount over the appointment of retired Judge, Justice James Patterson as the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), the Guyana Government is unfazed with Minister of State Joseph Harmon on Thursday dismissing recent attacks on the Chairman.Harmon at a post-Cabinet press briefing dismissed suggestions that Patterson hadMinister of State Joseph Harmona heavy hand in the infamous “Grenada 17” trial, while serving in the judicial system on that island.The Guyana Human Rights Association (GHRA) in a statement on Wednesday brought to light Justice Patterson’s alleged involvement in the proceedings. The case stemmed from the United States’ (US) invasion of Grenada in 1983, which led to a trial of the surviving 17 alleged ringleaders – known as the “Grenada 17”.The trial was held by a group of Attorneys and Judges appointed and paid for by the US, and according the GHRA, aspects of the proceedings were dominated by the US Administration, which generated widespread international condemnation.The human rights watchdog asked whether a person who has never disassociated himself from being at the centre of an episode which tarnished the reputation of the Caribbean judicial community for a generation, is truly ‘fit and proper’ to be elevated to one of the most sensitive posts and constitutional offices in Guyana.“…National elections in Guyana are the subject of intense interest and require frequent inter-action between the Commissioner, contending parties and the diplomatic community. The extracts from the official documents quoted above encourage the conclusion that when confronted with the interests of a foreign power, Justice Patterson could not be relied on to keep his own counsel or maintain the impartiality or discretion required in a Chairman of GECOM,” the GHRA said on Wednesday.However, in response to this most recent criticism, Minister Harmon pointed out on Thursday that Justice Patterson’s ability to head the Elections Commission should not be determined by his involvement in the controversial case.“There are many decisions that are being made by jurists all around the world. Some of the best Judges in the United Kingdom, you’ll find some judgments that they make are so way out but that don’t say that they are not good Judges… So I’m saying that it is difficult for some people in retrospect to look at decisions that were made by Judges and then deem them to be inappropriate for the job which they are holding now because of the decisions which they made then,” the Minister of State posited.Moreover, Harmon further outlined that he does not believe that the mounting criticisms of the new GECOM Chairman would diminish the public’s confidence in the local electoral system.The Opposition People’s Progressive Party (PPP) had filed a challenge in the High Court to rescind Patterson’s appointment on the grounds of unconstitutionality after he was unilaterally appointed by President David Granger, who had rejected 18 nominees on the three lists submitted by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo.The injunction is seeking a declaration that Justice Patterson is not qualified to be appointed in provision with Article 161-2 of the Constitution of Guyana.The PPP had raised concerns about Patterson’s alleged alignment with the major party in the coalition Government, the People’s National Congress (PNC). The Opposition claimed that he is an active member of a PNC-related website and was also a pallbearer at the funeral of former President Desmond Hoyte.However, Justice Patterson a few weeks ago denied any affiliation with any political party, telling reporters that he was merely friends with the former President as they had studied together in Grenada.last_img read more

The smart money’s on reading

first_imgQ: Do you have a recommendation for a book on kids and finance/investing in the stock market? My-12-year-old son is intrigued about how the markets work. We went to the bookstore, but the only title listed is no longer in print. A: Not many books on investing are written for 12-year-olds. But there are still plenty of resources to help young people – and their parents – understand the basics of sound money management, including investing. Before mentioning some specifics, however, I’d like to make a couple of points. First, while your son’s interest in investing should be nurtured, the first priority should be to instill good money habits, including saving, spending responsibly and sharing with those less fortunate. Good books I’ve read in this area include: On this subject, Renick recommends such timeless classics as “The Way To Wealth by Benjamin Franklin” (“super common sense that still applies today,” he said) and “The Richest Man in Babylon,” by George S. Clason (Signet), which, through a series of parables set in the ancient city, stresses the importance of building wealth systematically. Other books we both like include the best seller “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” by Robert Kiyosaki (Warner Books, Inc.) and Sharon Lechter, and “The Money Diet,” by Virginia Applegarth – better known as Ginger Applegarth (Viking Penguin). The entire “Rich Dad” series, although unconventional in its approach, is written in an engaging manner and raises the all-important question of whom we work for (even if we work for others, we should act as entrepreneurs). Applegarth’s book, while a bit heavy on budgeting, makes the point we should take responsibility for our finances rather than being a victim to circumstances. More on the investing side, Renick recommends “The Automatic Millionaire,” by David Bach (Broadway Books) and “Yes, You Can…Achieve Financial Independence,” by James Stowers (Andrews McMeel Publishing). I found Bach’s book a bit simplistic and formulaic for my taste but agree it can be highly useful. Stowers’ book is one of my favorites, although not as easy to read. For more on investing, I suggest also taking a look at the Web site of BetterInvesting (www.better-investing.org), and particularly the section on “Youth Investing.” BetterInvesting (cq) is the “brand name” of the National Association of Investors Corp (NAIC), a not-for-profit investor education group for investment clubs and individual members. You may also want to check two other books suggested by Ellis Traub, a longtime NAIC volunteer and author of his own book on investing, “Take Stock: A Roadmap to Profiting From Your First Walk Down Wall Street” (Career Press Inc.). The books he recommends, which I found good for children, are “Investing Tips Grampa Taught Us,” by Victor Eber (Authors Choice Press) and “Growing Money: A Complete Investing Guide for Kids,” by Gail Karlitz (Penguin Putnam Books for Young Readers) Eber’s book, sprinkled with cartoons and graphics, is a jargon-free guide to get-rich-slowly, long-term stock market investing written from what the author sees as the perspective of two of his grandchildren. “Growing Money” covers topics such as the difference between stocks and bonds, what a dividend is and how to keep track of investments – something many adults would do well to learn.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “The Financially Intelligent Parent,” by Eileen and Jon Gallo (Penguin Group USA), and “A Parent’s Guide To Money: Raising Financially Savvy Children,” by Alan Feigenbaum (Mars Publishing Inc.). While these books are aimed at parents, 12-year-olds can read and benefit from them. (In fact, Feigenbaum’s teenage daughter, Gibora, collaborated on his book). That’s the second point I want to make: Children your son’s age and even a bit younger can tackle good books on finances even if they are written for adults. “Something I’ve heard repeatedly from educators across the nation is that kids’ minds are like sponges and they need to be challenged,” said Sam X Renick, founder of a Los Angeles-based company that produces and sells books, music discs and other products that encourage children to save (see Web site www.itsahabit.com). Many parents routinely underestimate their children’s ability to understand and absorb challenging concepts, he said. Renick, a former financial adviser, agrees that children – and adults for that matter – should read books on general money management before books on investing. “I think it’s crucial that we train ourselves to develop an attitude, mindset or approach to money even prior to earning or investing it,” he said. “We should commit to always paying ourselves first as a part of that mindset and philosophy, and envision ourselves as ‘asset builders,’ ” said Renick, who is as passionate about this topic as I am. “If we get in the habit of paying ourselves first, we are automatically always on the road to prosperity.” (Paying ourselves first means that, every time we get paid, we set aside a portion for savings and investing.) last_img read more
