iStock/Thinkstock(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — A large lizard drew quite a few stares in Florida – not for its size, but its location.Oscar Tabares was trying to unclog a toilet at his family’s warehouse last Wednesday. When a plunger couldn’t do the job he called on family to help him remove the toilet.Tabares told ABC affiliate WPLG-TV an iguana was looking back at him in the toilet’s drain pipe, and he has the video to prove it.Footage provided to WPLG-TV shows Tabares’ uncle playing reptile wrangler and removing the lizard with a piece of rope.The Sunshine State is no stranger to surprise guests in its plumbing. In May, a woman in Miami called 911 after finding an iguana in her toilet.Lt. Felipe Lay of Miami-Dade Fire Rescue told WPLG-TV earlier this year that iguanas are “excellent swimmers and they can hold their breath for an extended period of time.”As for the fate of this most recent commode-loving curiosity, Tabares said his uncle safely released the iguana outside.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

In light of President David Granger’s recent statement on reducing concessions to foreign investors in order to create a level playing field for local investors, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo has stated that such a move is “anti-investment”. In a brief statement to the media Friday, the former Guyanese President pointed out that it is absurd that the Head of State would make such a comment especially at a time when the country is currently hosting its premier trading exposition – GuyExpo, a forum conceived and designed to attract investment both locally and overseas. Jagdeo posited that the move is “most counterproductive and anti-investment”. He said, “The President views the investment regime, which is currently in place intending to attract direct foreign investments, as too generous and promised that his Government will reduce these concessions.” According to the Opposition Leader, this latest pronouncement joins a long list of anti-private sector measures recently initiated by the A Partnership for National Unity+Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Administration. HeOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeohighlighted that prominent among these measures is the political contamination of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA). Jagdeo explained that “sweet-heart” deals are being offered to those who have been identified as making “political investments”, thereby removing a leveled playing field for their competitors. He also mentioned the fact that policies are being formulated and implemented without any studies and understanding of the technical nature of the issues, for example, the announcement of policies regarding high levels of remission without an appreciation of related incentive regime. On the other hand, Leader of the Opposition on Thursday welcomed investors here to participate in the country’s trade fair and encouraged them to make greater investments. He highlighted the importance of private investments, both local and foreign to the Guyanese economy and for job creation. Jagdeo further assured potential investors that their investments will receive the highest form of legal protection and constitutional guarantee. It is known that Guyana, like many other countries, offers concessions to attract foreign investors. However, during a special edition of this week’s televised programme – The Public Interest, President Granger indicated that he will adjust the amount of concessions offered to foreigners in order to create a level playing field for both foreign and local investors: “We want to ensure that foreigners are not given concessions and waivers and rebates, to which other people are not entitled. In fact, we want to reduce the amount of these concessions so that we become more competitive.” The president’s comments comes some two weeks after local businessman and Chairman of MCG Investments (Giftland Mall), Roy Beepat, called on government to provide a level playing field for all investors in Guyana, a call which the Private Sector Commission (PSC) has long been making. “In fairness to our investment and parity between local investment and international enterprises such as these, it is important that a level playing field, I would find it abhorrent if it is a case that multibillion international companies should be treated with preferential treatment and unfair trading advantages over local companies,” Beepat said in a letter to the media.
