Amidst all setbacks, dreams do come through and it is never too late to pursue those dreams with determination. This was proven by Deputy Commissioner Law Enforcement (ag) Wendell Blanhum when he was admitted to the local Bar on Wednesday. 

Blanhum’s petition to practice law in and before the courts of Guyana was presented in the Demerara High Court before Chief Justice (ag) Roxane George, SC by prominent Attorney-at-Law Latchmie Rahamat, who is also Blanhum’s wife. 

In congratulatory messages, the acting Chief Justice charged the Crime Chief to remain committed to excellence, noting that his job is one that is 24 hours.  

“You are not just an officer, but you are an officer of the courts…diligence, perseverance, and determination are what will take you through. I know you are up to the task, and I know you will live up to the task,” said the Chief Justice George to Blanhum. 

With this new achievement, the Crime Chief gave the assurance that he will continue to be fully committed to upholding the rule of law. 

Also present to witness the Bar call were: Commissioner of Police (ag) Clifton Hicken; Deputy Commissioner ‘Administration’ Calvin Brutus (who was admitted to the Bar on Wednesday); Deputy Commissioner ‘Operations’ Ravindradat Budhram; Head of Special Branch Errol Watts; Commander for Region 3 Assistant Commissioner Mahendra Siwnarine; Head of the CANU James Singh and other senior and junior Police officers; family; and well-wishers—including Permanent Secretary at the Home Affairs Ministry Mae Thomas and Public Service Minister Sonia Parag.
