Rusal scales back on bauxite shipments out of Guyana

first_imgUS sanctions on Russian tycoon…potentially devastating blow to industry – JagdeoAs the United States (US) sanctions against Russian business tycoon Oleg Deripaska, who is the main owner of the EN+ conglomerate, which is the co-owner of Rusal begins to sink in, the local operation in Guyana has significantly scaled back on its exportation of bauxite. This is according to President of the Guyana Bauxite and General Workers Union (GBGWU) Lincoln Lewis.Lincoln LewisRusal is one of the largest aluminum producers in the world and has operations here in Guyana in the form of the Bauxite Company of Guyana Incorporated (BCGI), employing over 500 persons. According to reports, the sanctions against Rusal have caused aluminum prices to surge since the sanctions freeze all of the company’s assets under the US jurisdiction.Lewis, in a telephone interview on Saturday with Guyana Times said the Union is still analysing the implications of the sanctions in the Guyana context and would be requesting a meeting with the Natural Resources Minister in the coming days.“We have to make an assessment of how the sanctions will impact Guyana as a country and the effect it will have on Rusal’s operations here. We are monitoring the operations of Rusal and what we do know is Rusal has virtually scaled back on their shipment of bauxite out of Guyana,” Lewis said.“We have to continue to analyse the situation and right now we will be seeking a meeting with the Government. As a matter of fact, on Monday we will be dispatching a letter to the Ministry (of Natural Resources) to have a meeting with the Minister and see how we will move forward,” Lewis added.When contacted, a senior manager at Rusal again said they are yet to receive word from their Moscow Headquarters as it relates to their operations but did confirm the company has scaled back on its exportation of bauxite.Devastating blowMeanwhile, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo at a press briefing on Friday said a “potentially devastating blow” could be dealt to the bauxite workers, particularly those in the Berbice River area.“We are talking about over 900 people who may be depending on how the issues go and from what I understand it is really those jobs that are all seriously threatened, and this is because of the consequences of the US sanctions on Rusal. So many of the companies with which they are engaging, particularly the transhipment company have already signalled reluctance to continue to service the operations,” he said.“Our Government is silent on it. Our President would fly off to London and leave the fate of thousands in uncertainty, so it would affect New Amsterdam as well as the Berbice River and all of Region 10,” Jagdeo added.Meanwhile, Oldendorff Carriers, which handles the shipping logistics for Rusal has reportedly given noticed to withdraw its service as a result of the sanction. Oldendorff Carriers is located in the Berbice River. However, the company has recently announced that transshipment arrangements with Bauxite Company of Guyana Inc remains intact.Deripaska has also been charged in US special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation regarding Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US presidential election.Last week, the US Treasury Department announced the sanctions against seven Russian oligarchs, 12 companies they either owned or controlled and 17 senior Government officials, who Washington said were profiting from the Russian Government’s engagement in “a range of malign activities” around the world.The Treasury Department warned that US entities would be “generally prohibited” from dealings with the persons and firms on the sanctions list, while added that companies outside the United States could face sanctions for “knowingly facilitating significant transactions for or on behalf of” the sanctioned entities.The US Government’s decision to include Deripaska on its sanctions blacklist will reverberate around the world because his business empire has a global footprint and counts major multinationals as partners.Deripaska, estimated by Forbes magazine to have a net worth of $6.7 billion, is the main owner of the conglomerate EN+, which in turn is the co-owner of some of the world’s biggest metals producers – Rusal and Nornickel.Deripaska’s inclusion on the US sanctions list could potentially create complications too for companies with which he does business; including German car giant Volkswagen and commodities trader Glencore.Rusal had said it regretted its inclusion on the US sanctions list, adding that its advisors were studying the situation. Hong Kong-listed Rusal is one of the world’s biggest aluminium producers. It says exports to the United States account for over 10 per cent of its output.Rusal owns assets in Italy, Ireland, Sweden, Nigeria, Guyana and Guinea. It owns a stake in Australian QAL, the world’s top alumina refinery.last_img read more


PPP/C condemns ripping down of party flags by APNU/AFC supporters

first_img– calls on supporters not to interfere with election materialsThe People’s Progressive Party (PPP) in its strongest terms condemned the ripping down of party flags by suspected supporters of the A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APN/AFC) in various sections of Guyana.Speaking with Guyana Times, PPP/C Executive Secretary Zulfikar Mustapha explained that the action is deliberate and disrespectful.PPP/C Executive Secretary Zulfikar Mustapha“They have been ripping down these flags and in Region Five, Georgetown, Region Three and it seems as there are activists of APNU/AFC. Places like Hope Town, Den Amstel and certain sections in Georgetown it seems as a deliberate [action] by APNU/AFC supporters to rip down our flags.”As such, the matter was reported to the Ethnic Relations Commission (ERC), the Guyana Police Force, and other relevant State agencies to investigate the matter and call for the ignorance to stop forthwith.“This election should be something that is fair where every party should have a chance to display their elections materials and things like that, so I hope these bodies will take note and deal with these matters,” the PPP Executive stated.Flags that are being ripped downMustapha further added that the PPP/C believes in democracy and will ensure that their supporters do not interfere with any other political party’s elections material.“We have informed them not to interfere with anybody’s materials. We believe in democracy; we believe in that everybody must have their fair chance and we have informed out activists not to interfere with anybody,” Mustapha cited.The destruction of party paraphernalia is nothing new. In 2015, a People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) rally was rudely interrupted by a band of supporters of the APNU/AFC – involving children in their nefarious activities, the supporters urinated on and burned PPP flags, and hurled missiles at the rally speakers, including party stalwart, Dr Roger Luncheon.The person reported to have urinated on the PPP flag and subsequently setting it ablaze was Child Welfare Officer Abigail Baveghems, who is also the daughter of an APNU member.That incident has been widely criticised, given that it occurred on the same day that political parties had signed on to a Code of Conduct aimed at guiding the manner in which campaigning is conducted.last_img read more


Man United injury update v Chelsea – HUGE BOOST for Red Devils as attacker looks set to recover for Sunday’s clash

first_img 1 1 Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal became a figure of fun on Monday evening as he claimed that his side could still catch runaway league leaders Chelsea, but he will have the perfect opportunity to justify that assertion on Sunday afternoon when the two heavyweights square off at Old Trafford.United are currently 10 points behind their London counterparts – who are yet to taste defeat in the Premier League – and while the Red Devils will still be without captain Wayne Rooney, who serves the final match of his suspension, Van Gaal looks likely to receive a handful of boosts that could prove the difference maker for the fallen giants.The biggest news understandably surrounds club-record signing Angel di Maria, who worryingly limped off in Monday’s draw with West Brom. The Argentine seemed to wince on the bench, as he sat with an ice-pack strapped to his groin, but after being spotted at United’s Carrington base on Wednesday to undergo additional treatment, the club are quietly confident that he will be fit in time for Sunday’s showdown.Another huge boost comes in the shape of Colombian hitman Radamel Falcao, who remained on the bench for the 2-2 draw due to the amount of travelling he had done during the international break, but according to latest reports he too is expected to be ready to go on Sunday.While defence continues to be an area of consternation for boss Louis van Gaal, his ranks look set to receive further reinforcements, with Jonny Evans and youngster Paddy McNair to undergo fitness tests that could see them follow the returns of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling last weekend.And finally, something of a minor boost, Monday’s goal hero Marouane Fellaini insists he is fully fit and raring to help fire United back into the Premier League’s upper-echelons after enduring his own difficult start to life at Old Trafford following his switch from Everton in the summer of 2013.Below is how Man United could line-up against Chelsea on Sunday: Man United fans, how do you think you’ll line-up on Sunday?

Don’t give up on Lallana! Liverpool hero wants Reds to snub Spurs’ £20m interest

first_imgDietmar Hamann says it would be a ‘big surprise’ if Jurgen Klopp allowed Adam Lallana to leave Liverpool this summer.Lallana’s former Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino reportedly wants to be reunited with the midfielder at Tottenham, with the north London club plotting a £20m move when the transfer window reopens.The 28-year-old endured a difficult first campaign at Anfield after his £25m switch from the Saints in 2014, but has been in good form since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival.And Hamann hopes the Merseysiders snub Spurs’ interest in the midfielder – as he believes Lallana can be a ‘game-changer’ for Klopp’s men next season.“If Lallana were to leave, it would be a big surprise because he has come good lately and shown improved form under the new manager,” the Champions League-winning former Reds star told talkSPORT.“He is a very talented player. He is one of the players I love to watch and one of the players England has really produced in the last ten to 15 years who has got beautiful balance, uses both feet, has great vision.“Unfortunately he hasn’t done it often enough for Liverpool but I wouldn’t give up the ghost.“If the penny drops, he is a game-changer and with [Roberto] Firmino and [Philippe] Coutinho and either [Divock] Origi or [Daniel] Sturridge he forms a pretty formidable front four.”Another Liverpool player being linked with a summer exit is Christian Benteke, but Hammann would not be surprised if Klopp allowed him to move on.The Belgian striker has struggled to show his best form following his £32.5million move from Aston Villa last summer, scoring just nine goals in 39 appearances, and is understood to be on West Ham’s radar.Hamann added on talkSPORT: “He started the season as the number one or two striker depending on Daniel Sturridge’s fitness but he has gone down the pecking order.“Origi started ahead of him and I don’t see why that will change when he is back fit. If Sturridge does stay at the club then he will be third in the pecking order, which for a player of his talent is obviously not satisfying.“So, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Benteke were to leave.”Dietmar Hamann was talking at a golf day to raise funds for Arms Around The Child, which works to provide a loving home, medical treatment, protection, respect and education for children who have lost their parents or are living in adversity.
