Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping for doing within four months

Minister of Legal Affairs and Attorney General, Basil Williams, has re-emphasised that Guyana is not ‘blacklisted’. Statements made by some opposition members, prior to the country’s commendation by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) are nothing but erroneous and mischievous, he said.      .Speaking on a National Communications Network’s (NCN)  programme recently, the Minister said, “When I came back from meeting with  FATF: the International Coordinating Review Group (ICRG) and the FATF Plenary, at the recently concluded (October) Meeting in Paris, France, I was shocked to read a headline, in the Guyana Times, actually declaring that Guyana still remains blacklisted.”Williams explained that after his ensuing press conference and the issuance of his press release on what actually transpired at the meeting, he thought that matters would have been grasped, and that retraction would have been forthcoming.He added that the Public Service Commission (PSC) in stating that it is disappointed with where Guyana is at the moment, “is suggestive of corroborating what the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) stated, but still is not reflective of the truth.”Minister Williams reiterated that the Coalition Government “was actually applauded by FATF, for doing within four months, what the PPP/C government failed to do in 15 years.”   He added, “In that release,NFL Jerseys China, it was clearly stated that the APNU+AFC Government came in for high praise, from both institutions of FATF (Financial Action Task Force); the International Coordinating Review Group (ICRG), and the FATF Plenary, at the recently concluded Meeting in Paris,Cheap NFL Jerseys, France.”He said the ICRG adopted the Assessors’ report of its regional arm,Jerseys China Wholesale, the Americas Region Review group (ARRG), which stated inter alia, that the main development in Guyana is the enactment of the Anti-Money Laundering/Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/CFT) Amendment Act 2015, which became enforceable on July 10, 2015.Minister Williams said, “Guyana has demonstrated its commitment to comply with the action plan and is to be commended for having met most of the deadlines.”The AG also alluded to the Guyana Chronicle of Thursday, December 2014, where the former AG had clearly stated that Guyana was not blacklisted. At that time, the FATF Plenary did say that Guyana ‘will maintain its status quo’ in the Compliance Document.“Therefore,Cheap NBA Jerseys China, logically, the PPP/C is contradicting itself,” the Minister noted. In this regard overall, “Guyana is light years away from any kind of blacklisting; more so, that the current Government has manifested the political will to enforce all of FATF’s recommendations.”“As soon as the governance of Guyana changed hands, the APNU+AFC Government’s first initiative was to pass the AML/CFT 2015 Amendment Bill, and also laid the requisite regulations in the House, and all of these are now law.”The current Government was very concerned with the Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU), since the then government brought its version of the Bill, but the manner of the appointment of the Director of the FIU was most compromising, since that position was to be enacted by the then Minister of Finance.The AG noted,China Jerseys, too, that this ‘appointed person’ could have only been fired by the President himself, and thus, “this would have meant that the whole exercise would have been a PPP/C’s.”All of this has changed now and the FIU is totally independent, the AG detailed, “as it should be, without political interference and influence, and that is the main difference between them (PPP/C) and us,Stitched NFL Jerseys, and so now accepted by FATF.”
