No politician gives direction to Police, GDF – President Granger

With some concerns that there may be political interference in the work of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and the Guyana Police Force (GPF), President Granger has made it pellucid that no politician gives operational direction to the two agencies.
A GDF officer and two others were recently killed in an accident after a high speed chase went the wrong way. The Officer, Robert Pyle was in th process of conducting a reconissance mission on the children of NICIL Head Winston Brassington, reports state.
The opposition People’s Progressive Party had accused the government of misusing the security regime for political purposes. But President Granger was adamant that this was not the case.
He recalled that the GPF and GDF have a history of conducting joint operations hence the mission should not come as a surpise.
“As far as I know the SOCU is conducting some investigtions…the request may have came from the polic force to the defence force…no politician gets involved in giving directional objectives to the police force or Chief of Staff,” said the President.
Asked whether a probe will be conducting into the circumstances surrounding the botched operation, the Commander in Chief responded in the negative.
“The chief of staff has examined the information I dont think it requires a full probe.”
Former Home Affairs Minister Gail Teixeira has stated that the Chief of Stafff of GDF Mark Phillips and the Commissioner of Police Seelall Persaud have to answer for the death of Pyle and the two others that were killed.
She stated that they have a responsibility to say who gave the orders for the reconnaissance mission.
“The GDF and Commissioner of Police have to say if they were tracking Brassington’s daughter then who gave the orders…what was the interest of a person’s daughter – if you have an interest in a person there are mechanisms to do it and not chase them down the road.”
She said that while the government has a right to conduct investigations, there are procedures to be followed and in this case, these procedures were apparently flouted.

    Sympathies to the families of the two innocent dead. No sympathies for the officer as he clearly overstepped being over zealous to chase down a young girl like that. I wonder where this military state is heading to. Seriously I hope not back to the Burnt-ham oppressive days.

      “No sympathies for the Officer etc.,…” HE acted on instructions . Had he disobeyed, well that would have had very serious repercussions My sympathies to him, RIP

      you are a pathetic fool with zero understanding of how the security services work, thus; this uneducated comment which you compiled and rushed to get published here!

      it is obvious you don’t know that if an officer gets an instruction from his commanding officer / headquarters and refuse to take orders he is likely to be court martialed and end-up in jail. it is plain buffoonery to think what he did was “he clearly overstepped being over zealous to chase down a young girl like that” as you moronically wants to put it because, the fact is; the officer was doing his job!

      if the government have concrete evidence that indeed there were movement of records / documents that belongs to the state, the “young girl” you referred to here won’t be no ordinary innocent young girl [ a’yuh like to play the victimhood game ] anymore because, in every civilized country in the world if it could be proven that her action of moving and transporting records intended to deceive the government and hamper the state asset recovery unit from carrying out its investigations, she would be slapped with the murder of three innocent people as; her irresponsible actions are what triggered the chase ending in the deaths of three people.

      and while you want to remind people of burnham’s oppressive days, you must also understand that some readers here are wondering how you could miss the bharrat jagdeo’s oppressive days when he unleashed roger khan on the guyanese people.

        you are a pathetic fool with zero understanding of how the security services work, thus; this uneducated comment which you compiled and rushed to get published here!—– NORMAL PROCEDURE CALL FOR THE POLICE TO CONDUCT THESE OPERATION GUESS THE COUNTRY IS IN A STATE OF UNREST HENCE THE MILITARY RUNNING THE OPERATION, will leave the pathetic part for you to figure out….

        a’yuh like to play the victimhood game ——– LOLLLLLLLLLLLLLL I will leave that one for you to figure out who master that

        Long legs your penchant for questioning ‘s intelligence calling them fools says a lot about you . SARU is the brainchild of the WPA faction of the Coalition their goal is to destroy the PPP political leadership and the organization also. Clive Thomas and company are out to frame people just to prove his theory about corruption . How can this young woman be charged with murder of these people who are chasing her in an unmarked vehicle ? Magistrate Vhphuis opened fire on policemen on a dark street in G/T a few years ago was he charged ? Many in the WPA currently engage with the coalition were victims of the PNC regimes political spite and to bear witness to their excesses as a partner in the coalition now well so much for grounding with those brothers . But then Fine man and his gang and Oceans Eleven were your freedom fighters !!!
        One wonders aloud at who is really playing smart instead of being clever to quote Davd Hinds .

          firstly, you stand stoically on the side of utter nonsense and that is why you saw “intelligence” among all the buffoonery and trash which that character – whom i replied to – wrote about a now dead service member, whom has done more for his country than 99% of the blabbermouths and guttersnipes who come on these forums to spread propaganda in the very same mold as depicted in your reply to me here.

          for your information, you don’t get to pick my freedom fighters because, my parents and grandparents thought me, given our background, that real freedom comes with education and i listened to them and got myself formally educated – i did not sit at bottom-houses listening to idiots tell me about my country or how the world started – so, you cut that crap about fineman and gang of eleven being my freedom fighters. as a matter of fact, i am more in a position to tell you exactly whom your freedom fighters are because, their identities are revealed every time you bend over backwards to defend the indefensible.

          now secondly… on my worse day i am ten times as smart as you on your very best day so, to answer your question about “how the young lady could end-up being charged with murder“, the explanation is very simple but of course you did not pay attention the first time so, for a second time read my explanation below.

          if the fact is that she indeed was transporting / moving records and documents belonging to nicil – which by extension are documents belonging to the government and people of guyana – with the intention of hindering the state asset recovery unit’s investigation – essentially committing a criminal act – and it is proven that her action/s triggered the high speed chase leading to those deaths, she is likely to be charged with murder if such law is on the books in guyana.
