A lawyer for President Bharat Jagdeo yesterday said that the recent sale of the head of state’s Goedverwagting, East Coast Demerara property for $120M, was done in a transparent manner.
According to Attorney-at-law, Anil Nandlall, in a statement in which he disclosed that he was the President’s lawyer, the agreement of sale was executed on May 31 with the price set at US$600,000.
The imposing edifice, located east of the Ogle Airport Road, was sold to Desmond ‘Ernie’ Ross, whose address was given as 129 Park Avenue, West Moorings, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
Ross, said to be the Chief Executive Officer/Creative Director of Ernie Ross Advertising Limited, and Guyana’s Honorary Consul to Trinidad and Tobago, was expected to pay US$120,000 at the signing of the agreement and the balance when the transport is passed, Nandlall said.

Georgetown, Guyana – (December 15, 2015) First Lady, Mrs. Sandra Granger, in collaboration with the ‘Rethink’ Organisation, the Ministry of Social Cohesion and Caribbean Airlines, today, presented over 1500 pairs of shoes to students from the hinterland regions, who are currently studying in Georgetown.
…First Lady presented the shoes to the students, in the presence of Junior Minister of Health, Dr. Karen Cummings; Junior Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs, Valerie Garrido-Lowe and Mr. Ernie Ross, Guyana’s Honorary Consul in Trinidad and Tobago.
The shoes were donated under the ‘Rethink Initiative-Kind Soles Project’, started by Mr. Ross, in support of the President’s initiative to ensure that all children, regardless of their location, are able to attend school. This is the first batch of a total of 30,000 shoes, which are expected to be given to all students in the hinterland regions of Guyana over the coming months.
Minister of Social Cohesion, Mrs. Amna Ally, in brief remarks said the President has a passion for education and seeing every child in school and the project is a supplement to his ‘Boats, Buses and Bicycles’ (‘three Bs’) initiative to realise this objective.
“I had a discussion with Mr. Ernie Ross, after he had seen a picture of the hinterland children bare feet, and he said he wanted to provide some shoes for them. (Ernie had catarac in he eye prior to may 11, preventing him from seeing barefoot children in bharrat jagdeo’s Guyana) Well, I had seen a programme on BBC where a charitable organisation working in Africa had recognised the need for shoes for the children that can protect them from cuts and infections and so on, and so they developed this shoe called “Shoes that grow”. [Being] a mother, I know you buy shoes and in six months their sizes change. So we thought this was the best for the children since it can still be worn as they get older and we approached the company,” Mrs Granger said.
three weeks after our historic may elections, ernie ross was caught up in yet another scandal in trinidad. david granger, president elect, highlighted it on his facebook page
A sniper is a marksman or qualified specialist who operates alone, in a pair, or with a sniper team to maintain close visual contact with the enemy and engage targets from concealed positions or distances exceeding the detection capabilities of enemy personnel. Snipers typically have highly selective or specialized training and use crew-served high-precision/special application rifles and optics, and often have sophisticated communication assets to feed valuable combat information back to their units or military bases.
Most sniper teams operate independently, with little combat asset support from their parent units; their job is to deliver discriminatory, highly accurate rifle fire against enemy targets that cannot be engaged successfully by the regular rifleman because of range, size, location, fleeting nature, or visibility. Sniping requires the development of basic infantry skills to a high degree of skill. A sniper’s training incorporates a wide variety of subjects designed to increase value as a force multiplier and to ensure battlefield survival. The art of sniping requires learning and repetitiously practicing these skills until mastered. A sniper must be highly trained in long range rifle marksmanship and field craft skills to ensure maximum effective engagements with minimum risk.
