Minister of Finance, Dr Ashni Singh says that reducing the 16 per cent rate of the Value Added Tax will not in any way reduce the escalating cost of living.Dr Singh made the announcement during a recent sitting of the National Assembly where opposition party members reiterated their calls for the reduction of the rate.According to Dr Singh, the bulk of money for the average person is spent on electricity, rent, food and transportation.The Finance Minister said that as it relates to transportation, the tax on gasoline has been significantly reduced and diesel has been zero rated.He added that no VAT is paid on electricity, rent and basic food items. “How will reducing the VAT rate in anyway affect the prices of these commodities and services?”The People’s National Congress Reform has long said that it supports VAT in principle but is against the 16 per cent rate.“It is a more broadly based tax on the production of goods and services and thus, in principle, acceptable to the PNCR on the grounds of equity in tax burden among producers….However, from the time of the introduction of the VAT Bill in the National Assembly during the Eighth Parliament, the PNCR has consistently raised a number of concerns almost all of which remain unaddressed.”The party organized a series of protest marches and picketing exercises against the rate of VAT among other issues.Last year November when Dr Singh laid in the National Assembly the mid year financial report for the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) which revealed a windfall of some $12B, the PNCR had announced that its position was vindicated.The rate has, however, not been reduced.In December 2005 prior to its introduction on January 1, 2007 the Private Sector Commission pointed out that Guyana has the highest personal and corporate tax rates in the Caribbean, and opined that the introduction of VAT at a rate of 16 per cent would place an enormous tax burden on the Guyanese consumer and a terrible strain on the country’s manufacturing, business, tourism, and export sectors. The Private Sector Commission stated that VAT must be introduced in conjunction with a reform of the existing tax system.They further stated that the tax in its present form would result in a significant increase in the cost of living to the average consumer.Red Thread, Wholesale NFL Jerseys Online, a civil society organisation that speaks for women around the country, had also expressed concerns with respect to the effects of VAT on Guyanese people in general, and more specifically on unwaged housewives, low-waged workers, unemployed women and men, and pensioners.They had expressed concern about prices that have increased on items that previously had no consumption tax, or consumption tax lower than 16 per cent, but are now subject to VAT.The Alliance for Change has also placed its voice on record regarding the adverse effects of VAT and has on several occasions called for the reduction of the tax.Prior to its introduction, President Bharrat Jagdeo and the GRA had given assurances that VAT should not result in a higher cost of living.

By Leon SuseranFormer Senior Superintendent of Prisons, Mr. Poshanand Tahal recently expressed concerns about the current state of the prison system, especially as it relates to overcrowding and the need for the female prisoners at New Amsterdam to be re-located to a separate facility.During an interview with Kaieteur News, Tahal who spent over 34 years in the Guyana Prison Service (GPS), acting as Director of Prisons at some point or another, and who served for quite a number of years at the New Amsterdam  Prisons, related some of his burning concerns.“The overcrowding—the New Amsterdam Prison is very small and to hold 100 prisoners in a very cramped position is not easy. I understand they got some plan to build at Lusignan. I don’t know how that would facilitate movement. The government did suggest somewhere at Leonora for a female prison. I don’t know the land but it was mooted then. I don’t know if they have that in thoughts anymore. Georgetown is terrible, Cheap NFL Jerseys, terribly overcrowded, ” he said.Tahal stated that when he left the system, the remand population at New Amsterdam was roughly 48 per cent of the total male population and about 50 per cent of the total female population. This amount he said varies from time to time.Poshanand TahalThe females need space to operate and space to get involved of activities “and so the Officer-in-Charge can only dream of activities to get them involved in.”“To do gardening or training, they have to come outside or even play games—it’s not always the best opportunities for them.”Tahal noted that the large garden space that was used in the past to do large- scale farming at the New Amsterdam Prisons was taken away to build the new New Amsterdam Hospital and the only plot of land that remains today is the one that is owned and leased by the Presbyterian Church in the area.The plan then was to look for a piece of land along the East Bank of Berbice to do farming and a proposal was prepared, “but nothing was done about that. The land aback of the Berbice High School (BHS), the church has taken it back.”“Every industry that prisons become involved in, you have to have somebody at the helm who has a drive to see the thing continuously remain successful, and I think sometimes, you know, a lot of young cadets come in and some of them get the impression—‘Oh I didn’t come as an Agriculturist—I come as an administrative officer and chicken rearing is not my business’—I get that kind of impression and they need to be much more wide in their dreams, ” the former Deputy Prison Director stated.And the main essence of prison hasn’t been removed from the law—that is separation and segregation. According to Tahal, it is difficult for any prison officer to practice separation and segregation (separate the remands from the convicted; the hardcore form the soft-core) in Guyana. He related that what currently obtains in the system is not good enough; whereby the only separation is females from males in New Amsterdam, “and that’s not good.”He believes the powers that be need to understand “that not every prisoner can be trained and retrained.”“They got the hard core who will never change. For instance, they got a prisoner whose name is Jack, who has served over 40 prison sentences, who tell you plainly  ‘Boss man, I ain’t got no other home—I go on the road and I coming back….just keep me bed, don’t give it away’. What will we do with him?” Tahal questioned.The retired prison officer also believes that government should be utilizing prison labour. He said that they should have prisoners work for incentives by doing work and performing jobs in the communities in which they serve jail time, “given the right security”.“Let them earn for the food and the things the government giving them—it’s plenty money we spending on them—let them give back to the society, they can do that.”
