Those police officers are not new, some were employed in the police force with 20 plus years of experience... these same officers took the same oath on the first day of employment, why did they fail to execute the same duty during PPP government. ( we all know, 99 % are Afro who is align to PNC)
Guyanese are not dummies, they knew the police force was control by PNC
Congress Place used to tap into the police radio frequency during PPP government and was redirecting police officers allowing the criminals to escape.
Capturing of fugitive and drugs lord came with the help of the DEA which opens it office in 2016.
The idea of a local base DEA office was done under PPP government led by Bharrat Jagdeo in 2009 who called for such a office in Guyana.
Jagdeo also asked the US to expand its Mérida Initiative for Mexico and Central America to the Caribbean, during a Caricom meeting with US officials and his argument then was that the crackdown in Mexico could push drug traffickers into the Caribbean, which lies directly between the South American source of many illegal drugs and the US, the world’s top consumer,”.
DaVE the PPP always rejected teh setting up of the DEA in GY
Incorrect. Read here who approved of the DEA office
US setting up DEA office in Guyana to go after drug lords
The United States (US) is to set up an office of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) here to help go after drug kingpins at a time when there is a shift in trafficking routes, American Ambassador Brent Hardt announced on Thursday.
“There is definitely a shift to this region as we work closely with Mexico and Central America to tighten up some of the areas there so this does have a strategic purpose in that sense that the flows are increasing and there is need to boost our presence and engagement in the Caribbean,” he told reporters.
He said the DEA would be moving equipment and personnel very soon in keeping with Congressional approval to set up for the office in Guyana. It would be based in the US Embassy.
The American envoy has previously said the anti-drug agents of the police and Customs and Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) would have to be screened to ensure that that they do not leak vital information to suspects. He explained on Thursday that local agents would be responsible for arresting suspects after receiving and sharing intelligence with the DEA.
“It’s a matter of working to build cases, use the intelligence to draw on DEA’s global and regional organisations,” he said.
Hardt echoed the desire of President Donald Ramotar for the passage of amendments to the Anti Money Laundering and Countering of Financing Terrorism (AML/CFT)Act.
