Some of these chemicals are legally imported to manufacture products such as soap powder.The Home Affairs Minister said that while the human resources available to Guyana to effectively man its borders is limited,Cheap Jerseys Outlet, the people expect that those vested with such responsibilities do so with zeal, enthusiasm, passion and a high level of commitment.The GRA, and more precisely the Customs and Trade Administration, is part of the Task Force that deals with the illegal trafficking of narcotics and as such the minister said,Cheap Jerseys, it is imperative that they collaborate with other stakeholders to effective carry out their tasks.He noted that coordination among the many agencies of the Task Force is increasing daily and this status quo should be intensified.“We have no choice but to do so because if we want to increase our effectiveness, alertness and track record in terms of interdiction and prosecution, obviously we have to have greater and greater coordination. It is in the interest of the nation for us to have greater coordination. What is the point of having several law enforcement agencies operating in the country and the left hand don’t know what the right hand is doing?” Rohee said.He stressed the importance of the training programme, since the public expectations are very high when it comes to public officials.“We cannot fault the people for this high degree of expectation,” Rohee said.He however warned against the lure of corruption pointing out that the weakest link in the fight against the trafficking of drugs and the movement of explosives is the human factor.To this end he pointed to the integrity testing implemented by the government to address certain sections of the law enforcement agencies to provide a greater sense of credibility to the state, the country and the individuals who are executing certain functions.“You can’t bribe a camera, you can’t bribe a dog, you can’t pass an envelope to some piece of equipment, but you can do so with an individual,” Minister Rohee stated.Head of the Analyst Food and Drug Department, Marilyn Collins, emphasised that the Customs and Trade Administration is Guyana’s first line of defence and is a very important entity to monitor the importation and movement of precursor chemicals.She echoed the sentiments of Minister Rohee, pointing out that regardless of how many resources are available to a country, if the ports are not manned properly, that country will go nowhere.Collins pointed to the fact that precursor chemicals are important to the persons who are bent on producing illegal drugs and it is therefore the task of the Customs and Trade Administration to stifle their activities.She pointed out that it takes very little to set up clandestine laboratories to produce illegal drugs and therefore it is imperative that the supply of the chemicals is limited, if not eliminated, to these manufacturers.According to the head of the Food and Drug department, it is almost impossible to just look at chemicals and tell what they are, since many persons could disguise them.So it is with this in mind that training is important to help to ensure that chemicals are not diverted for the purpose of making illegal drugs. Commissioner-General Khurshid Sattaur acknowledged that the time has come for the Customs and Trade Administration to be more proactive in the fight to stamp out the manufacture and trafficking of illegal drugs.He noted that the mandate of the GRA is not only to collect revenue, and urged the participants to make full use of the training programme since the success of the entity depends to a large extent on them.
