Guyanese drug trafficker Roger Khan

September 21 2019

After serving 10 years in a United States prison for drug trafficking, Roger Khan returned to Guyana last night and was kept in custody by police pending investigations of his alleged involvement in the murders of political activist Ronald Waddell and boxing coach Donald Allison.

Arriving at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport on an American Airlines flight from Miami, which touched down shortly after 11.30 last evening, the 47-year-old Khan was whisked away under heavy police guard to police headquarters in Georgetown.

Although Police Commissioner Leslie James had said Khan would be treated like any other person upon his return, there was an unusually large police presence of uniformed and plain clothes police, as well as members of the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Unit.

Khan also wasn’t escorted out of the airport using the regular exit for arriving passengers; he was brought out through a side entrance in a heavily tinted white pick-up.

The police did not use sirens or lights during their exit and sped off with armed officers heading for the capital and a large contingent of media personnel following.

However, there were police roadblocks set up at Providence and Agricola, which caused traffic congestion. No one was searched at the roadblocks and no explanation was given as to why they were set up.

After calls by press personnel to the Commissioner of Police complaining, the barricades were removed.

Khan was taken to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at Eve Leary, where he was processed.

After spending close to an hour at the CID headquarters, during which time he was briefly allowed to see his attorney, Glenn Hannoman, he was transported to an undisclosed holding facility this morning.

Hanoman said Khan told him that the police had explained to him that he would not be released and instead would be held for questioning about the murders of Waddell and Allison. He said Khan would continue to declare his innocence, even as he expressed that he was “happy” to be back in Guyana.

Asked if he believes that Khan would be kept for 72 hours by police, Hanoman said that he hoped not as he would object because it is not a legal position.

He said that Khan told him that he was treated well by the police.

However, he raised objections when police held up video cameras in both their faces when they were meeting, which Khan’s attorney believe is a breach of client/attorney privilege.

Hanoman said that he will continue to have access to his client.

Waddell, 57, was killed in January, 2006.

Donald Allison

At the time, it was reported that a dark-coloured car took the gunmen to the scene, where they were apparently watching Waddell’s movements from the seawall. As soon as Waddell got into his car, two gunmen ran across the road and opened fire on the vehicle. They then ran back across the road, jumped into their car and sped away east along the highway.

Allison, meanwhile, was killed in September, 2005.  He was executed in a drive-by shooting carried out by men armed with machine guns. Allison, 43, came under a barrage of gunfire outside the Ricola Boxing Gym on the Agricola Public Road. He was sitting in front of the two-story building with a female student when the men pulled up in a dark coloured vehicle and opened fire. Allison, who sustained wounds to his head and upper body, was clearly the target of the attack.

Police had arrested freed murder accused Shawn Hinds and two relatives of dead ‘hitman’ Axel Williams, but the men were all released. It was believed that a city-based death squad with links to the underworld carried out the killing.

However, an informant for the US government, during the witness tampering trial of Khan’s former lawyer Robert Simels, had claimed that Khan ordered the execution of both Waddell and Allison.

Selwyn Vaughn, a professed former member of Khan’s alleged “Phantom gang” who was granted immunity from prosecution, had testified in the United States that he had served as the lookout for the hit on Waddell.

Vaughn said he was in a Burgundy AT 192 motor car when four other named members of the squad turned up and shot Waddell. He told the court he had been the lookout man who was tracking Waddell and he called Khan on his cell phone that night and reported that the talk show host had left his residence and his car was idling on the roadway. Within minutes, four members of Khan’s squad, all former members of the Guyana Police Force named by Vaughn, turned up and shot Waddell.

Speaking about the murder of Allison, Vaughn said he was the lookout in that hit as well. Khan, he said, called him to ask for the location of Allison and after receiving the information members of the “Phantom squad” came out and shot Allison dead.

Khan is returning to volatile circumstances here, smack in the middle of a political stalemate in which his alleged deeds are constantly invoked. Given that he was known to be connected with the drug trade and to have mobilised a small private army, there are many questions about his role in a series of events during what President David Granger has dubbed `The Troubles’.

Under the Bharrat Jagdeo administration, Khan was thought to have been given free rein to go after persons he determined to be criminals in the period following the 2002 jail-break when five escapees triggered a crime wave the likes of which had never before been seen in the country.

There is the view that Khan could be prevailed upon to provide information on his activities here post the 2002 jail-break and up to the point he fled from Guyana. He was later arrested in Suriname and was seized by US authorities in Trinidad while ostensibly en route to Guyana.

Khan was released from a US prison in early July after serving almost ten years of a 15-year sentence for drug trafficking. He was sentenced after he pleaded guilty to trafficking cocaine, witness tampering and gun-running.

ahmmm . . . OK

the support for mass murderering drug criminals on ethnic grounds by the supposedly sane 'authorities' on this board is sobering and instructive

smh

nothing to do with ethnic grounds...

one man's mass murderer in another's freedom fighter...

Granger was part of Burnham's machine...he supported a criminal

RK knows what to do with criminals...

R. Waddell was openly talking on TV about African militant response in a multicultural country something that he dare not do in the United States without having a visit from the FBI.  He and his TV show were allowing some callers to call in and express their hateful views.  One woman called in to his program and on the air described how to make a bomb to viewers of the program.  Enough is enough we need to protect our people from these deep hardcore anti koolie racist people.  We need a sovereign independent country to protect our peoples' future.

I would like to see a detailed investigation be made of what Waddel was up to in the ABC countries and if there were any reasons why he returned to Guyana. I have a feeling if a man can shout for an African militant response in multicultural Guyana then a man can shout for an African militant response in a multicultural ABC country. But you can bet your bottom dollar there will be consequences in those countries for your actions.

de slopster think that being chubby with a big belly is an indication of de good life.  RK look fit and trim. 

He is an intelligent man who knows once he returned to Guyana what he is up against. Staying fit is the major key to combat the Prejudiced Gang lead by an ex-president and his followers who exhibit their ignorance for the world to read.

It was difficult!  In principle BJ was not wrong however, he should be cognitive of the larger picture and what was at stake.

This is where the PPP continues to make “Jagan era” tactical blunders.

A foreign power tell you to act against one of your citizens because they have evidence of something but cannot tell you!  

As I said, it’s  incorrect but Jagdeo should know the US.

We know you like good looking man.

 Kong is referenced to kabaka ,getting slow. RK will have stay low ...folks may be after him.

Roger Khan won't be allowed to stay low. He is a dead man walking. Jagdeo handed him over to the US through his pal Bouterse. It was the PPP that informed the Surinamese government where Khan was. The money from that drugs deal has gone missing. Khan has few friends left.

I believe you. In prison he had enough time to set up a network. He must know he would be a target. For certain, his bodygaurds are not Indians. Black folks are sincere once dey on your side. They din hesitate to kill other blacks in their allegiance. The PNC gat more worries on dey hands than stealing the elections. The country is fcked, wickedness abound.

Strong possibility,  but I doubt it.  Wouldnt look good on the part of the current Govt. One thing is for sure tho, Raja ain't going free anything soon. They're going to hold onto to him for as long as they are able to.
