first_imgThe Gaming Authority has been listed as another agency that is culpable of corrupted actions, after information surfaced that one business owner was asked to bribe officials in order for his casino licence to be granted.Opposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoThis was brought to light by Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday, who stated that the owner of SleepIn Hotel was denied his licence after being asked to pay a large sum of money to see his application through.This is one of the main reasons why the casino of the Hotel was never opened to the public, despite a multimillion-dollar investment.Another individual was involved in the process, proposing that the licence be issued to his establishment and then sold to the SleepIn owner.The proposed SleepIn Hotel CasinoUnder the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Administration, provisions were made for only three casinos to be operational in every region. While the Ramada Princess Casino was functional, the Marriott Hotel had signalled interest along with SleepIn Hotel.As part of the requirements, prospective casino owners were asked to construct a hotel with no less than 150 rooms and other requirements to encourage economic activities and they would be granted a licence to operate.It was recently announced by the Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon that there has been a surge in the number of betting and gaming shops in Guyana. Jagdeo lamented that this is because of the slackness in having companies pay the bribe without making any investments that could provide services or employment to Guyanese.“You have some foreign companies that have come in here and quickly go through the process of getting licences. They never built a hotel, they never built 150 rooms and employed thousands of Guyanese. … This is what is happening now,” the Opposition Leader alleged.Marriott HotelIn 2016, hotelier Clifton Bacchus was denied permission from the Gaming Authority to commence operations, having invested millions into developing a state-of-the-art casino, which remains closed. Chairman of the Gaming Authority, Roysdale Forde indicated on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ forum that a second application was filed.During that event, Harmon had acknowledged that there has been a multiplication of these gaming outlets and admitted that the Authority would be pressured to ensure that all outlets were in compliance with the requisite licensing. Some of these gaming establishments are situated in communities which are suffering from socioeconomic constraints.The Ramada Princess Hotel Casino“With our economy moving at the pace at which it is moving, I can only anticipate that it is going to be a tremendous pressure on the Authority for licences to open gaming establishments. What I have also seen that there is a proliferation of these betting shops all across Guyana. I trust that the Gaming Authority takes this responsibility of ensuring that these entities are properly regulated and that they operate within the confines of the laws of Guyana, because they cannot escape notice that some of these operations are in some of the especially challenged communities of our country,” he had stated.The Director General insisted that operators and consumers of these establishments should be engaged on the negative impacts of betting and gaming sites.“The Gaming Authority has a responsibility to ensure that the public and operators of gaming establishments are aware of not only the positive but also the negative impacts that gaming can have on an individual and our society in general. This is necessary so as to assist owners in appreciating the need for a systems and policies that will support responsible gaming and gambling.”last_img read more

first_imgIreland’s most famous amateur weatherman has said there is ‘SNOW WAY’ Donegal is going to be plunged into artic-like conditions this winter.Postman Michael Gallagher has successfully predicted snowfalls for the last number of years from his base in the hills of Donegal.But Michael, from Glenfin, says he simply can’t understand why everyone is saying the country is going to be covered in snow and freezing conditions for months on end. “I simply don’t know where these forecasts are coming form. I can see no signs of it.“We might have a little snow but I don’t think it’s going to be as bad as the past couple of years.“I can see us getting plenty of rain and frost but I can’t see the huge falls of snow and freezing temperatures which everyone seems to be predicting,” he said.Michael, who famously forced bookmaker Paddy Power to pay out €70,000 in early bets after predicting a white Christmas two years ago, says there will be plenty of storms. Only recently he was approached by a customer while doing his rounds who had found a frog behind a flowerpot.“When we lifted the flowerpot the frog just wouldn’t move. I just knew that was a bad sign.“A couple of days later we had those bad storms. The frog knew it was going to be bad and didn’t plan on moving anywhere,” said Michael.Apart from Michael, another hugely-respected weatherman who does not think we are going to shiver too much this winter is Peter O’Donnell from said January next could be the coldest month but it is unlikely to be as bad as last year. “In general, this is not expected to be as dramatic as last year, and the severe cold is not expected to continue through most of December.“There may be roughly equal spells of mild and cold weather with strong winds, some heavy rainfalls and some snow or ice.”REAL NEWS – REAL PEOPLEDONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST NEWS WEBSITE ADVERTISE FOR JUST € www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comMICHAEL PUTS THE ‘FREEZE’ ON A WHITE WINTER AND ARCTIC-LIKE CONDITIONS was last modified: October 20th, 2011 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)Tags:CHristmasforecastMichael Gallaghersnowweathermanlast_img read more
