In a collaborated venture between the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) and the Rights of the Child (ROC) Commission, a Human Rights and Leadership Workshop for the Guyana Police Force (GPF) was hosted at Herdmanston Lodge, Georgetown, where the spotlight was placed on the rights of children and the roles and responsibilities of the police in protecting them from abuse and neglect.According to UNICEF Deputy Resident Representative Paolo Marchi, the purpose was to engage the GPF in preventing, identifying and protecting abused and neglected juveniles since research shows that 70 per cent of children are victims of such and the police are entrusted to serve as a form of protection towards them.He relayed that his belief is that the Force’s involvement will enhance thei capacity of providing protection as they internalise the essential ROC mechanisms to provide a wider comprehension of the realistic and lawful children rights.While acclaiming the organisations for initiating the learning session, Force Training Officer Paul Williams highlighted, on behalf of the GPF, that there was no such thing as “too much” training in light of the daily occurrences of change. He added that because of theUNICEF Deputy Resident Representative Paolo Marchiappropriate training programmes, ranks of all abilities were efficiently trained.The Training Officer asserted that facilities are in place to ensure Juvenile delinquents are segregated from adult prisoners through a standing order under the Juvenile Offenders Act. He voiced that if a minor needs to be interviewed, members of the Force and faith networks are present. He also noted that the GPF regularly provides assistance to the homeless and impoverished children.Williams highlighted that the GPF will implement the practices they’ve learnt when engaging with children as law enforcers and vowed that other officers who were unable to participate in the learning sessions would be trained by trainers.He noted that in relation to child custody, court orders would be enforced and there is an intention to create sustainable relationships with agencies and the ministry in this regard.Pointing out that the rights of children are often breached in the vicinity of their homes and even the courts, ROC Consultant, Queenla Cameron stressed on the need for the human rights standards to be applied by the police when carrying out their duties. She also voiced that it is necessary for the ROC Convention to be applied without delay in an effort to ensure the best interest of the children.Cameron added that children should not be used to provide evidence in court and should not be subjected to agony by the police. She also encouraged the GPF to adapt to the policies of ROC.

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Kevin De Bruyne and Kyle Walker are likely to start in Manchester City’s Champions League clash against Shakhtar Donetsk on TuesdayDe Bruyne made a cameo appearance in City’s 5-0 mauling of Burnley after a lengthy layoff on the sidelines while Walker missed out due to a groin problem. However, Pep confirmed the duo are fit to play against Shakhtar.“If they are here it is because they are ready to play,” said Guardiola of the duo’s availability.The former Bayern boss also encouraged two of his senior players David Silva and Fernandinho, to extend their playing days for as long as possible.Mourinho knows why City and Liverpool are so far ahead George Patchias – September 13, 2019 Jose Mourinho knows why Manchester City and Liverpool are so far ahead of everyone else in the Premier League.In an interview with the Telegraph,…“They [Silva and Fernandinho] have two more years contract but they have to think day by day, month by month and then ask themselves at the end of the season if they are still ready to play. My advice then is to play, you have to play,” he told Sky.Guardiola equally spoke about City’s poor start to the competition against Lyon urging his lads to learn from the experience and raise their game.“Learn from that [defeat]. When you play an entire season the Champions League level is higher. So work. It looks easy, it is not,” he said.“When you win games with a big result it is not easy. So learn, you have 15 points still to play for and to compete in the competition you have to live it. All we can do is learn and try to avoid it in the future.”
