The two persons, who are implicated in an alleged plot to commit treason, on Tuesday confronted each other in the presence of police investigators at the headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

CID Head, Superintendent Wendell Blanhum said the man, who reported the alleged plot to commit treason, arrived at the CID headquarters. “A confrontation was held between the reporter and another individual and on completion of the confrontation, the police are in the process of dispatching the case file to the Police Legal Adviser,” he said.

He said the accuser and the accused were not in custody.

Word of the alleged plot to open fire at the President in exchange for GYD$7 million surfaced last week when Minister of State, Joseph Harmon announced that the Guyana Police Force had informed government of the alleged plot.

The accuser then appeared on the privately-owned HGPTV Nightly News where he recounted what had allegedly transpired between himself and the businessman known as “Rasta.”
