first_imgThe Liberian government is warning all ECOWAS citizens desirous of residing or seeking employment in Liberia to “obtain an official ECOWAS bio-metric Identification card” before entering into such arrangement.According to Labor Minister Neto Zarzar Lighe, Sr. the new regulation is intended to properly inform government’s data management system in order to advise the “informal business sector” of the economy.Atty. Lighe explained that the move is in compliance with Regulation 17, Section 2, which came into effect on September 16, 2009 and as such, his ministry is “ready for a nationwide enforcement exercise.”The sixty (60) day ultimatum which started on February 26 and ends April 26, will have no extension, and as such, “ECOWAS citizens operating and or seeking employment within the informal sector of Liberia must obtain their work permits either in Montserrado or from the regional offices of the Ministry of Labor in the leeward counties in keeping with Category B.“Our offices are open from Monday thru Friday weekly and we encourage those concerned to take advantage because the entire process is less time consuming.“The entire process only takes 30 minutes so there is no need for the public to run from it.“This regulation requires that ECOWAS citizens who seek employment in the informal business sector are to pay a work permit fee of US$100.00,” the Labor boss said.According to him, all concerned are required to adhere to this mandate as violators will each be fined US$500.00 (five hundred United States Dollars).Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gaming Authority guilty of corrupt practices – Opposition Leader

January 12, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ixyfmqzbo.

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
