[www.inewsguyana.com] – Former Parliamentarian of A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), James Bond has made it clear that he will be heavily critical of the APNU+AFC coalition government if they do not fire Commissioner General of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA), Khurshid Sattaur.

Bond, during his appearance on the radio programme ‘Hard Talk’ aired on 90.1 Love FM on Sunday, June 14, opined that Sattaur is a failure.

“I think Khurshid Sattaur should do the right thing and resign. He should go. I think he is a failure, he has done an injustice to public office and he should go immediately. Were I the President and were I the Minister of State, I would fire him immediately…The very minute I was sworn in, I would have said you sir, should go,” Bond stated.

In September 2014, the Alliance For Change (AFC) had issued a statement, calling for Sattaur to be sent packing, in wake of reports in the Kaieteur News that a number of independent media houses are being targeted by the Revenue Authority for reporting stories that do not find favour with the PPP Civic, which was in government at the time.

The report revealed alleged email exchanges between the GRA Commissioner General, the former Attorney General and others where tax documents regarding the income and expenditure of a number of media houses were sent allegedly by the Commissioner General to government officials.

Meanwhile, Bond also wants Registrar of Lands, Juliet Sattaur to also be fired. He opined that there is gross “incompetence” at the Lands Registry.

“We need to improve our deliverables in terms of efficiency. That place is complete mess. She is another one that needs to go because of incompetence. I think were I the President, I would examine the sloth in which the registry operates.”

Only recently, the legal fraternity expressed deep “dissatisfaction” with the performance of Ms. Sattaur.

Original Post

Someone told me yesterday that tax/customs/VAT collections increased under Sattaur and that was why the PPP had so much $$$ to spend/steal.

 

Don't know much about the Juliet Sattaur but all the Ministries are backward and need megadoses of efficiency.

 

I think it was a deliberate strategy to keep Govt inefficient so bribes can be given to speed things up. I think the people in the ministries like it that way. I had talked to Ramotar and he said it was hard to change the mentality of the Ministries.  Ram had asked me for copy of Al Gore's reinventing government booklet which I obtained and gave to him.

Pathetic thing to be said by the leader of a country...isn't it?

I don't know much about Kurshid Sattaur and can't comment on what James Bond is talking about. However, I can comment about Ms. Juliet Sattaur whom I worked with in the 70s at the Supreme Court. She is a very principled and competent individual who has on many occasions refused to accept bribes from people. She has contributed more than 40 years of her life to the service of her country. Regarding bribery, I saw this with my own eyes when I visited her office in Georgetown when a lawyer approached her with a brown bag full of money asking her to speed up a matter. She said to me "see - this is what I am talking about - bribes". She firmly dealt with the lawyer in no uncertain terms. Maybe lawyers like Bond are dissatisfied because the Registry would not accept bribes to get their documents processed on time.

Bond and most in the legal fraternity are equally guilty of corrupting the systems through bribery. They should look at themselves first before trying to give good people a bad name.

Plot to destroy Kaieteur News… More damning evidence surfaces from Sattaur

Former President Bharrat Jagdeo, GRA boss Khurshid Sattaur and Attorney General Anil Nandlall

This publication recently made public correspondence between the Commissioner General of the Guyana

Revenue Authority (GRA), Khurshid Sattaur, Attorney General Anil Nandlall and former President Bharrat Jagdeo. The publication has since seen allegations by Nandlall and Sattaur. In fact, the Commissioner General declined to comment on the e-mail, choosing instead to question the confidentiality of correspondence. On that occasion, the e-mail contained confidential tax information on local media houses and the threat of an impending audit of Kaieteur News by GRA. Below is another e-mail sent to the Attorney General Anil Nandlall, from Khurshid Sattaur.

 

 

From: khurshid sattaur (khurshidsattaur@hotmail.com) Sent: MOD 9/15/148:16 AM To: Nandalall (anilnandlall@hotmail.com) AG It is of grave concern to me that the owner of Kaieteur News is engaged in a psychological game of tit for tat as it relates to targeting me every time something very obnoxious bordering onto illegality get leaked on him or that affects his credibility. This concern stems from the fact that only recently in reply to the GRA upsetting his apple cart in showing what a corrupt and criminal minded individual this invidious character he is, he published information that on closer examination can be considered as libellous. Since he is a dirty person, i am not inclined after this recent episode of slanderous reporting, prepared to expose my character to being sullied by this depraved and mentally sick individual.

I must be given assurances from the government I server that no stones will be left unturned to safeguard my reputation while I pursue these kind of invidious characters. It is instructive to note that the reason why Freddie is now averse to writing trash concerning me is because a multi-million-dollar assessments hang over his head like the sword of demacles.

As the Attorney General of this great land of ours the minimum I would expect from you is legal protection from the courts invoking the laws that protects me against such attacks using his media house, as this individual knows no limits as to what he can put someone through once he targets them. I have a wife and family and as recently demonstrated, in the publication captioned above, not only did the scoundrel obtain accurate information on the purpose of my trip to Trinidad but added, from the figment of his own imagination, sufficient garbage to taint me as a terrorist and a criminal minded individual similar to our attempt to portray him. The difference however between us, is that while I received a National award for outstanding work of an exceptionally high order, this demon only claim to fame is perhaps his notoriety.

I am therefore appealing to you in the interest on preserving my prestige and pristine character to act condignly and swiftly to prosecute this vagrant under the Customs Act and if possible have him jailed as the offence of harassing a GRA officer us a very serious one and has jail term. I will before the end of the day have a file with the various newspaper clippings attesting to the execution of his threats he conveyed to me through a telephone conversation, on the night of the attempted seizure of his vehicles and for which i filed a police-report on the matter. I am indeed looking forward to your usual efficient manner in taking action and would be willing to give any further information you may require to have the matter successfully prosecuted.

Antiman,

 

Then why didn't the PPP arrest Bond and other offenders and try them for judicial bribery?

 

Quit your incessant braying. We had a PPP Government for 23 years. So F you!

Listen Shaitaan, you can disagree with me but please don't disrespect me.  

I can say this that the PPP was part of the corrupted system. Parliamentarians of all stripes openly broke the law in full view of the PPP and they turned a blind eye to it by deliberately refusing to enforce the law. Only poor people who broke the law were charged.
