Court Awards US$76K against Chinese Company

first_imgThe commercial court at the Temple of Justice has ruled against Lichi Incorporated, a Chinese sand mining company, ordering it to pay US$76,892 plus six percent interest to several of its workers.The court took the decision last Tuesday in the absence of the company’s representatives.Although throughout the trial the company’s lawyers questioned the credibility some of the witnesses who testified during the case, Judge Richard Klah said: “Having examined the evidence and documents, I found Lichi guilty and they must therefore pay the workers U$76,892 plus statutory interest of six percent.’’ Before Judge Klah’s decision, he asked the court to enter a default judgement against the company since none of its representatives were present in court.In their suit, the workers alleged that from October 2012 to June 2013, they entered into a memorandum of understanding (MOU) under which they supplied a total of 4,586 loads of river sand to the company, and that under the agreement the company was to pay US$22 for each of the load of sand totalling U$76,892. The company, however, refused to pay despite several negotiations, which led to the suit and the subsequent judgment for the plaintiffs.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyana supports UN talks on migration

first_imgGuyana on Wednesday said it welcomed the recently-completed first round of talks on migration at United Nations headquarters.The initiative, which involves UN Member States, including Guyana, saw the completion of this first meeting as a step closer towards crafting a “Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration (GCM)”.Guyana, whose Diaspora is as large as its internal population, recognises the loss of skilled and unskilled persons as a result of irregular movement of people and the lack of success of unilateral efforts to address these challenges.Also, prior to the ongoing discussions, Guyana held a local national consultative meeting on migration as a means to better inform its position on the Global Compact talks.The UN has now taken a people-centred approach and stressed the need for international cooperation which Guyana fully supported.The Zero Draft document reflecting the outcome of the initial meeting will be up for a second round of negotiations next week from Monday, March 12 to Thursday, March 15.Six meetings are scheduled to be held until July this year when UN Member States are expected to adopt the GCM.Guyana is being represented at these talks by Head of the Diaspora Unit, Michael Brotherson, and Director of the Multilateral and Global Affairs Department, Troy Torrington, both of the Foreign Affairs Ministry.In 2016, 193 UN Member States adopted the New York Declaration at the UN Summit for Refugees and Migrants. In adopting the Declaration, the Member States signalled their readiness to finalise a GCM that not only aligns with goal 10 of the Sustainable Development Goals, but also coordinates the efforts of each UN Member State, the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and the UN to protect and empower migrants through policies that ensure safe, orderly, and regular migration.last_img read more
