OPINION: Half+One: Guyana’s Constitutional Crisis

by Vivian Williams LLM Has the government of Guyana fallen or has it not? The chant from government supporters is “let the court decide” and retort from opponents is that the legal argument relied on are simply “foolish”.

OPINION: Guyana – a gathering place for all except locals

by GHK Lall There they are operating under different foreign flags in local waters: Norwegian ships charting and collecting; multinational ExxonMobil readying and salivating; American State Department (and outgoing US Ambassador) shifting and solidifying partnership gears through comforting sounds.  As if not to be left out of the festivities, Caricom countries and the British (I think) have spoken favorably.
