DPI, Guyana, Thursday, January 10, 2019

Commissioner of Police, Leslie James says the investigation into former Member of Parliament, Charrandass Persaud is a matter of National Security. The commissioner was responding to questions by members of the media earlier today at the State House.

He said that at the moment, the Guyana Police Force (GPF) is gathering evidence. “What is established will be determined, we do not determine what is established. What we do is investigate matters and submit for legal advice,” the Top Cop stated.

Commissioner James said that at this time he cannot say what the investigations surround but noted, “That is of national security importance; this is a sensitive matter, please give due regard… A former Member of Parliament is reported to be involved allegedly in some matter and that is what we are dealing with.”

The Top Cop noted too that a press conference will be held shortly and an update on the situation will be given.
