‘We need your support’ – Crime Chief

DPI, Georgetown, Guyana, Monday, November 27, 2017

Crime Chief (ag) Paul Williams is pleading with the public for their continued support. This comes amid claims of leaked police intelligence being responsible for the murder of popular businessman, Godfrey ‘Saga’ Scipio.

Crime Chief acting, Paul Williams.

“I am asking members of the public to continue to have that trust and that support in the Guyana police, because many times and in most cases, we need your support. Maintain and sustain that trust, don’t be misled and carried away by social media because sometimes I see them being more wicked, rather than being supportive,” Williams said.

Quizzed about the recent implicating, and subsequent charging of several ranks of the Guyana Police Force for the murder of Scipio, Williams said that while there are speculations about information leaks coming from within the Force, the public must be careful with the kinds of information they deem credible.

“I am appealing to the public out there please don’t be misled by the information you see on social media and some of the media houses. Persons are giving information maybe internally or externally, but please be careful how you digest them. Wait for the final nail or hammer as to where you see someone appears before the court”, Williams said.

Further, the Crime Chief (ag) said there is no truth in claims that information leading to the recapture of the country’s most wanted, Royden Williams, was provided by Saga.

“I want to say that is a totally wicked and misleading information to the public. Saga at no time provided information to help in the recapture of Royden Williams.  Royden Williams’ recapture came from our own intelligence-led posture between the police and the joint services. So, at no time and at no stage,  Saga provided information,” the Crime Chief insisted.
