Wholesale NBA Jerseys Guyana doesn’t care about good fathers anymore

–    disguises himself to visit his homeland By Dale Andrews Ever since a wanted bulletin was issued for his arrest in 2008, 44-year-old Linden Sinclair has been forced to into dodging local police. His alleged crime is: abducting his two-year-old son Ezekiel and taking him back to his place of birth, French Guiana.But Sinclair is adamant that the crime he is being accused of is a big fabrication. For him, the only crime he is guilty of was trying to be a father of his child. In an age when society is crying out for fathers to play a more meaningful role in the children’s lives, Sinclair said that he is being persecuted for doing just that.The time spent hiding had taken its toll on Sinclair, and coupled with the fact that his young son had to endure the stress with his father forced Sinclair into settling his feud with his former girlfriend and sending the child back to Guyana.The former Foreign Service Officer,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, who was forced to seek the safety of the French overseas department to the east of Surinam, recently returned to Guyana for a brief period and related a tale of being hounded by the Guyana police at the instigation of the mother of his child, with the backing of a former top police officer.Risking capture, Sinclair, using several disguises, combed the city, hoping to get a glimpse of his now seven-year-old son,NFL Jerseys Supply, whom he had not seen for the past two years.Now safely back in French Guiana, he gave the go-ahead to publish his story, since he is desperate to clear himself of the abduction allegation.In 2008 a police bulletin read: “Lynden Sinclair, whose last known address was 412 West Ruimveldt Housing Scheme,Cheap Jerseys, Georgetown, is wanted by the police for questioning in relation to the abduction of a two-year-old male child. Sinclair, 39, is a former employee of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.Linden Sinclair and his son.The police are asking that anyone with information which may lead to the arrest of Lynden Sinclair kindly contact the police on telephone numbers 225-6411, 226-9941, 226-6978, 227-6123, 911 or at the nearest police station. All information will be treated with strict confidence.”But according to Sinclair, he had a falling out with his common law wife after returning to Guyana with little Ezekiel. He said that he had confided in the woman that he had information on a high ranking policeman who had direct links to the illegal drug trade.“It was dirty, terrible. Stuff about rapes, going as far back as twenty years…his links to Roger Khan, and other hard evidence,” Sinclair disclosed.The former Foreign Affairs Ministry employee said that his common law wife, who he believes had struck up a relationship with the police officer, let the cat out of the bag and since then he became a target for elimination.He stated that although he was still an employee of the Foreign Ministry at the time, he had to be constantly “looking over his shoulder” for he was convinced that the high ranking cop was definitely pursuing him for personal reasons.“Oh, he was coming after me! Because when I heard that the police were looking for me, I checked with Eve Leary and they said ‘No! No such thing!’ People were coming to my mother’s house, my cousin’s house, but never to my house.”Sinclair went into hiding and had taken his son with him.As the hunt for him intensified, he decided that he had to leave Guyana. But at that time he was not willing to put his young son through the horrors of being on the run with him.He contacted the child’s mother and offered to have her take him back. This newspaper was provided with recorded conversations between Sinclair and the child’s mother, during which he pleaded with her to take the little boy. However while the woman agreed, she insisted that the child be taken to a police station and she would uplift him from there.Sinclair admitted that he sensed that he was being set-up so that the police could capture him, and he expressed that sentiment to the woman. The woman also expressed fear for her safety and declined to collect the child without the police being present.Eventually they agreed that the child be taken to a police station at a specified time,Cheap NHL Adidas Jerseys, so that his mother could collect him. The plan fell through, for although Sinclair kept his end of the bargain, the woman did not show up to collect her son.“Thirteen times she refused to come and take him and this is what the public should know. She refused to come and take him. I took the child to the Linden Police Station; I took the child to the Social Services. I did make efforts to give her the child and she refused,” Sinclair told Kaieteur News.He even claimed that at one time when he made arrangements with the woman to hand over the child at an agreed rendezvous in Sophia, he was attacked by persons he suspected to be gunmen, causing him to risk his life as well as that of his son in order to get away from them.Eventually, having no other choice, Sinclair fled Guyana with the child, leaving all other personal belongings, including his minibus, behind.“We stamped out. That’s very important. We never ran away. We just went back to ‘our country’ where we belong,” said Sinclair who had solid links to French Guiana.He felt that his troubles were over and it was time to start a new life as a single-parent father.He was wrong! Leaving the child with relatives in French Guiana, Sinclair sought employment in neighboring Surinam. It was there he learnt that a wanted bulletin was issued for him back in his homeland.“I started wondering who I kidnapped in Guyana, and then I found out that it was my own son I had kidnapped.”Being a former Foreign Service Officer, Sinclair was fully aware of the arrangement Guyana has with Surinam and he knew he was not safe, so once again he was on the run and again he fled to the safety of French Guiana.According to Sinclair, from all indications the Guyanese authorities were stopping at nothing to get to him.“They even sent people to French Guiana to get me.”According to Sinclair, the matter of the child’s custody was eventually taken before a French judge who ruled that he as the child’s father was entitled to his custody, since the child was a born Frenchman.“The French Police even turned and told me that I must not come to Guyana because they want to kill me,” Sinclair said.However, despite this, Sinclair agreed to have the child return to his mother in 2011, with the stated condition that he be allowed to see him periodically. The woman eventually brought the child back to Guyana and that was the last time Sinclair saw him.Since then he has been making several secret sojourns into Guyana with the hope of seeing his son, all to no avail.“I was trying to help with Guyana’s development, but Guyana turned around and undeveloped me, you understand… that’s how I see it,” he said.Sinclair said that because of the kidnapping allegations, a lot of his friends and associates, including diplomats, both regional and international have distanced themselves from him.“They say, ‘no this guy is a criminal, he’s a kidnapper’ when in fact my only crime was to be a good father to my child. To make sure that he’s safe and well taken care of…If being a good father is criminal, then what does that say about the Guyanese public.”“It’s okay to make children with a woman and then go away and leave them,Cheap NFL Jerseys, and then you’re considered a man by Guyanese… Is that it? That’s the question I ask. What is happening, Guyana doesn’t care about good fathers anymore? People were telling me that I should have gone away and just leave him (my son), leave him with social services. I couldn’t do that,” a distraught Sinclair declared.He said that initially he did not know why he was being so targeted, but now he is convinced that it had to do with what he had in his desk drawer at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.“They went to my office and they searched and they found it. So they figured if they could get me and silence me, the information would have been suppressed.”Five years after the bulletin was first issued for him,Cheap Jerseys Online, Sinclair remains on Guyana’s wanted list.In an e-mail to this newspaper shortly after he returned to French Guiana last week, Sinclair informed that the hunt for him resumed when he was here.“Men in plainclothes came looking for me again. I also received a call from a policeman claiming that I am needed at Kitty Police Station,” he wrote.
