GDF $500M aircraft grounded since August 2018 commissioning

first_img– disassembled for checks, never used by Army to date– GCAA still to receive documentation for approvalThe two Britten-Norman Islanders that were purchased and added to the Air Corps’ fleet of Guyana Defence Force (GDF) are yet to be utilised for the purposes for they which have been bought.One of the two multimillion-dollar Britten-Norman Islanders that have been grounded almost one year to date (DPI photo)In fact, upon the arrival of the two aircraft in August last, maintenance works and checks were being carried out before they could be flown by military officials but to date, these Islanders are yet to take to the skies.Director General of the Ministry of the Presidency, Joseph Harmon on Sunday told <<>> that the two planes had been “stripped down” when they were brought to Guyana so that components on each aircraft could be inspected and checked thoroughly.One month short of a year since those planes landed in Guyana these checks are still ongoing but Harmon stated that they should be in the skies soon.“They have actually almost completed both of them. One of them I believe should be waiting on an inspection now to complete one and the other one they are basically still doing some investigations on some of the parts that…they have to actually check every part of it before they allow it to fly, checks by the Civil Aviation here too… they were being flown in a commercial sense because now they have to fly them for military purposes, they have to go through several additional checks, so this is really what the situation is.”No application for the GDF aircraft made to Aviation AuthorityHowever, Director of the Guyana Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), Lieutenant Colonel (Ret’d) Egbert Field, also on Sunday afternoon told this publication that his agency cannot give approval for aircraft to ply the routes in Guyana unless the agency or organisation makes an application for such.“It is not that they made an application and we refused. We are waiting for them to send in the documentation or reference to the aircraft and then we will review it with the aim of either approving or not approving. But I say again, they have not submitted any documentation to us as yet for approval.”He explained that while the GCAA is aware that the two Britten Islanders are in Guyana and in the possession of the GDF, there needs to be a formal application lodged at the GCAA for any further step to be taken. Since August last, to date, the GDF has not submitted such.“I think that they are doing some maintenance work but we would not get into that until they submit their documents and we review it, if there are any questions then we will approach the GDF, but we are just waiting for them to submit. They have not sent anything to us, they informed us that the aircraft are here but they have not done a formal application. Maybe they are dealing with certain issues…we are just waiting for them to submit their paperwork so I guess they are trying to dot all their Is and cross all their Ts, the GCAA Director stated.$484.2M supplemental paper in Parliament for GDF aircraftEarlier in 2018, the APNU/AFC Government sought $484.2 million in supplemental financing to acquire four aircraft, including two Islanders.Harmon, who was State Minister at that time, during a post-Cabinet press briefing late in 2018 had explained that a C check or maintenance check was being carried out. This entails the aircraft being disassembled and individual components checked.The supplemental funds for the aircraft were sought on the Guyana Defence Force’s (GDF) behalf in the National Assembly back in May 2018.At the time, Harmon was asked by Opposition parliamentarian and former Home Affairs Minister Clement Rohee about the manufacturing date of the aircraft.“These are not new aircraft. They are aircraft that have been in service and are being purchased by the company that owns them. The two Skyvans were manufactured in 1977 and the two Islanders in 1976. The Islanders were [used to transport] passengers and cargo while the Skyvans were for paratrooping,” Harmon had said.Under further questioning from Opposition Chief Whip Gail Teixeira, Harmon had assured that the planes were issued with airworthiness certificates from Brazilian and European Aviation officials. Harmon had also noted that the two Islanders would be further examined before Guyana even uses them.GDF expectations on use of the two aircraftAt the time of the commissioning of the aircraft in August 2018, Commanding Officer of the Air Corps, Commander Courtney Burns had laid out his expectations for how the aircraft would be used.For instance, he had said the aircraft would be used for search and rescue as required; airborne and airmobile operations; casualty evacuations; day and night medical evacuation; air transport for troops; as a platform for tactical operation; surveillance through the country including the Exclusive Economic Zone and disaster relief operations.He had also listed the use of the aircraft for replenishing supplies for those deployed, provide support for Government programmes, conduct trainings, conduct anti-piracy, anti-illegal mining, logging and fishing activities, support civil powers and the police, provide internal support operations, conduct counter-narcotic operations and cross border operations.last_img read more

City Council has no financial accountability – Goolsarran

first_img…calls for immediate auditWith a decade-long gap of no public presentation of its financial position, the City Council has proven to have no financial accountability, former Auditor General Anand Goolsarran on Monday stated as he called for an immediate in-depth audit into the Council.In an interview with Guyana Times, Goolsarran insisted that 10 years of arrears in terms of financial reporting and auditing was not only a “disturbing trend”, but also showed that the Council had no interest in bringing the accounts up to order.Former Auditor General Anand GoolsarranHe stated that as of August 2013, the last set of audited accounts of the Council was for 2004 and that the Audit Office had received financial statements for the years 2005 and 2007. There is no evidence to suggest that any financial statements were produced for 2006.According to the Municipal and District Councils Act, within four months of the close of the financial year, the city treasurer is required to prepare and submit to the auditor financial statements for that year for audit. If the treasurer fails to comply, he/she will be guilty of an offence.“Something has to be done because no efforts are being made to find out what happened in the last 10 years. This infers serious problems,” Goolsarran said, noting that during his tenure as the Auditor General he had cause to repudiate his opinion on the Council’s financial statements. He stated that the accounts were in such a bad state that he was unable to endorse them as it related to their completeness, accuracy, and validity.The City Hall has been lashed with criticisms from all sides, more recently with the proposal to introduce a parking meter system as a means of generating revenue for the Council. There have been other discrepancies highlighted within the Council which had pushed critics to lobby for a forensic audit.A few of these discrepancies were allegations that residential property owners were been allowed a 100 per cent reprieve on the interest on rates they owed to the Council, while commercial and corporate property owners were offered a 50 per cent to 75 per cent amnesty – dependent on special circumstances.However, this 75 per cent maximum amnesty has allegedly been breached many times and some commercial and corporate property owners have been awarded discounts of up to 100 per cent.Goolsarran stated that while there was no concrete evidence to suggest wrongdoing within the Council over the last 10 years, he has deduced that non-timely presentation of financial statements implied disinterest and, therefore, raised eyebrows about the handling of fiscal matters within the Council.“The newly-elected Councillors have to demand an audit and call for accountability within the City Council. They need to reflect on how best to fix the broken system and bring the accounts up to date. Simultaneously, they need to commission a special audit for the last 10 years because gathering the information for that time would take years…and the people anxious to know what has been going on within City Hall and I am anxious…so a special audit is also necessary,” he said.Goolsarran insisted that given the Council’s lack of financial accountability, any proposal geared at enhancing the Council’s revenue base would be illogical. “It is like fixing a broken net. You cannot use it unless it is patched or you buy a new one.”“So before they engage in earning revenue, they need to fix the system because what guarantee do we have that the money collected from the parking meters would be accounted for?” he questioned.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo recently called on President Granger to commission an audit into the City Hall. He stated that the Council has been allocated millions and the country needed to know how much of those monies were spent. He stated that it was imperative to find out how many tax waivers it had given out and how it had tendered its contracts.last_img read more

Is this the reason Harry Kane didn’t leave Tottenham for Manchester United?

first_img Harry Kane 1 Spurs striker Harry Kane might have missed any summer offers from Manchester United after blanking his phone for his holidays.Louis van Gaal’s side were reportedly ready with a £50m to pair the England forward up with Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford.But Kane claims he shut himself away from football in the close season, on the advice of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.“It was important for me to have a good break after the Euros and last season,” Kane said.“The gaffer said that I should go away for three weeks and just forget about football, clear my mind and relax.“So I went to America and the Bahamas with my girlfriend, played some golf, chilled on the beach and tried to forget about the phone and not look at social media.”last_img read more
