We are victims of the German citizen
I feel compelled to reply to your May, 13 Article captioned “German Citizen Claims Police Brutality-after Irfaan Ali wake house incident.” I must say how disappointed I am that this newspaper did not seek to verify the statements of the complainant before publishing them. I have not studied journalism but I know that any professional journalist will verify a story before printing.
Firstly , the wake was kept at the residence of Mohamed Osman Ali so I don’t know how it became Irfaan Ali Wake house Incident but I am not surprised that Kaieteur News would choose to write the name of Irfaan Ali since this newspaper is obsessed with him.
I am not surprised, also, that the caption is on the first page since this newspaper is hell bent on portraying him in a negative light and wants to ensure that everyone sees it.
I notice that the complainant has been portraying herself as the victim of her “power drunk” neighbours which is far from the truth.
The truth is that we are the victims of her constant mental abuse which we receive on a daily basis. She targets us with her profanities and loud music constantly .
These profanities are so colourful that we feel so embarrassed-I thank God that we don’t have children around to hear them. When visitors come to us it is even worse but we suffer and we suffer hoping and praying that things will change. So many times my blood pressure will go up because she doesn’t speak but shouts and screams her curses.
Sometimes we would ask the security guards to speak to her and they would receive their share of curses.
In addition, she keeps her horses under her house which is another way of torturing us because we have to put up with the stench that emanates from their droppings and the flies that they bring. She claims that she is a German citizen and no one can do her anything.
We say nothing to her because we don’t want confrontations so she feels that she could do whatever she wants.
Power is displayed in many ways and by disrespecting the police she has shown that she is the one who is power drunk. We would never disrespect a police officer, by gleefully impinging on the peace and rights of others she has shown that she is power drunk –we would never do that, by openly using profanities against Ministers of the Government, she has shown that she is power drunk. We would never do that.
In addition, a person who can cause another to fear him/her is a very powerful person and believe me, I do fear this woman.
According to the article her house is sandwiched between Irfaan Ali’s mansion and his parents’ house. I see it this way, her house is at the center so she can launch her attacks at us simultaneously.
I want to conclude by saying that the entire article was riddled with untruth. True it is that she was having her normal day but she did not accurately describe what her normal day is. Her normal day is to curse us, to pick on us and to torture us and that is what she was doing on the day in question.
I hope you will publish my letter as early as possible.
