GGMC Commissioner fired
Chairman of the Guyana Geology and Mines Commission Rickford Vieira recently had his services terminated.
As such acting Commissioner Newell Dennison will act in the position until a new board is installed.
The Natural Resources Ministry in a release said after careful consideration and advice it acted on the recommendations of the board of the GGMC to dismiss Vieira.
The previous board headed by former chairman Clinton Williams had recommended that Vieira be dismissed following several complaints about his work ethic.
The Ministry said the soon to be installed board has the full confidence of the Ministry and it is believed that the commission will charter a new course for the commission which had been dogged by allegations of corruption and had its image tarnished in the public.
