Govt must end its witch-hunting campaign

first_imgDear Editor,The announcement in the Chronicle that Dr Ashni Singh and Winston Brassington have been charged ‘…for alleged misconduct in public office…’ reveals the vindictiveness of this A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) regime.This is clearly an attempt to destroy the professional lives of these two gentlemen. Their only ‘crime’ being that they worked dedicatedly to promote this country and our people’s interests while the People’s Progressive Party/Civic was in office. As a former President who worked with these two outstanding Guyanese men, I can vouch for their uprightness, professionalism and integrity while in public office. This latest attack on Dr Singh and Brassington is a continuation of the witch-hunting and the racial and political discrimination that has characterised this APNU/AFC regime since it took office in May of 2015. Not content in forcing these outstanding gentlemen to seek employment outside of Guyana, they now seem determined to destroy their professional lives. We cannot build a country with such vindictiveness and spite.Sincerely,Donald Ramotarlast_img read more
