Commission of Inquiry to probe alleged assassination plot against President Granger

FLASH BACK: President David Granger addressing the opening of the Annual Officers’ Conference of the Guyana Defence Force

President David Granger has decided to order a Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the alleged assassination plot against him.

Minister of State Joseph Harmon made the announcement during a post Cabinet press briefing at the Ministry of the Presidency.

The Minister said that, within two weeks’ government will make public those who will conduct the Commission of Inquiry.

The President has the authority to order a COI into any matter that is of public safety and happiness of the people of this country, the Minister was quoted as saying in a release issued by the Government Information Agency.

“Any plot or attempt to cause harm to his Excellency must be something that is in the public interest. So it is not a matter of not having confidence in any particular entity but it is the right of the president to determine if he requires any deeper level of inquiry into any matter”, Minister Harmon explained.

In April reports, surfaced in the media of an alleged plot to kill the Head of State. During the said period the Minister of State had disclosed at a post-Cabinet press briefing that Cabinet and the Guyana Police Force (GPF) were aware of a reported threat made against President Granger’s life. A number of persons had been questioned by police in connection with the alleged plot.

    He has no interest in the deaths of so many Guyanese.. killed everyday by bandits while his drunkard incompetent minister of security just who had all the answers to crime before May 2015 suddenly got amnesia… he should also order COI into the many blackouts across this country, COI into the horses on the ECD road esp at LBI (it hinders public safety also, and COI into the many dilapidated roads across tis country…. He is the biggest shame Guyana has ever seen.

    That is a matter for the police ( if the police think there is something there to investigate) not for a COI. If the president has hard evidence that the police are still in bed with the PPP (they were certainly at their beck and call up to a few short years ago) then he needs to conduct a purge of the force’s high command. His mentor conducted purges in the GDF for no other reason than feeling insecure. If there is a COI it should comprise retired top police and military personnel from other Caricom states. If the COI is dominated by retired local military personnel it will have the appearance of gamesmanship with a prearranged outcome being done for propaganda purposes.
    That said, I don’t know what a COI can discover that a professional police force can’t ( won’t???).
    If the president feels that the police high command is compromised then let him send the tainted ones packing. If he does not feel so then let the force do its work rather than mounting another expensive COI.

      Good assessment LB.. seems as if we do agree a lot…..EXCEPT for the “police are still in bed with the PPP” portion…that is not true, not even for the the GDF also….the turmoil with the “freedom fightas” over the past decades is ample proof….but that is another subject…which classified information for you may not be available…….Give the Public service some thought…and better yet, have a read on Dr Hinds piece on ethnic entrapment…which fails to point also it applicability to the PNC regime prior to 92…lets be fair….

        Even B4 kidneys cannot resist.

  • rs dasai

    Is Mr. Harmon correct?

    If the first sentence of the fifth paragraph is true, why do we need a COI to thwart such?

  • Col123

    get out from under that rock bro…at least no one is referring to the “afro president” girly man !… like the other one and the other “dumb azz”” half term one”!…at least not yet!..These outlets are teaching tools for reasons not to vote FUH CUP…should I continue?
