This will soon be legal and will bring money to the club, but it is too easy to regard everything that brings in money as desirable.”It has also been reported that a number of the country’s top teams, including Ajax and Feyenoord, are also reviewing the possibility of striking partnerships with gambling operators. The news comes as Kansspelautoriteit (KSA), the Dutch regulator, is implementing further measures to open up the country’s gaming industry further. Back in March of this year, KSA set out to gather the opinions from the gambling industry and stakeholders regarding player protection measures as part of an industry-wide consultation.The country’s Senate approved the Remote Gaming Act after two and a half years of debate, with the Act due to come into force from July 1, 2020.last_img read more


Govt terminates services of State pathologist

Posted On Jan 11 2020 by

first_imgThe Public Health Ministry has terminated the services of Government Pathologist, Dr Vivekanand Bridgemohan for reasons unknown. Guyana Times understands that the news of the termination was related as Police in Berbice were awaiting the doctor to perform three autopsies on Tuesday.Dr Bridgemohan, who has conducted more than 15,000 autopsies, was one of two pathologists who served in the Public Health Ministry. He performed his duties mostly in the Berbice regions.In recent times, the doctor has been criticised for his findings, thus, leaving many to question his credibility.In addition, his refusal to perform a post-mortem on the body of Mark Johnson of Nurney, Corentyne, Berbice in March last has also led to health officials and others questioned his performance.With the termination of Dr Bridgemohan’s contract, only State pathologist, Dr Nehaul Singh can perform autopsies for the Police-related cases.Meanwhile, as Police wait for the autopsies to be conducted on the bodies of 55-year-old Junior Quintin, also called “Hammer” of 58 Stanleytown; Shantharam Seenarine of East Canje, and Dominic Tyler Sulker of Stanleytown, New Amsterdam, family members are uncertain whether or not to go ahead with funeral arrangements.However, Divisional Commander Paul Langevin assured relatives that arrangements will be made for the autopsies to be conducted.Back in June 2017, Dr Bridgemohan was imprisoned at the Camp Street jail by Justice Navindra Singh after he failed to show up to provide evidence in a matter before him.last_img read more
