President Jagdeo’s recent outburst against the Canadian Government concerning their handling of deportees was thoughtless, unwise and inaccurate.
Juncata Juvant Friendly Society wants to make it clear that the majority of deportees from Canada are deported for Immigration offences; this amounts to 95% and a mere 5% for criminal offences.
If he had consulted with the Minister of Home Affairs, he would not have embarrassed himself.
Silence by the Minister of Home Affairs confirms the accuracy of the High Commissioner of Canada’s statement. Persons deported for Immigration offences continue to maintain status and should be treated as citizens of Guyana.
The President should give support to the Canadian Government, because the High Commissioner has been a pillar of strength since the establishment of the Juncata Juvant Friendly Society and must be complimented for the care and concern shown to deportees.
The High Commissioner has been in the forefront helping the Society in numerous ways, while the goodly President and his cohorts spend their time emitting untruths and inaccuracies about deportees. The Society has always looked forward to the High Commissioner for support in areas such as funding and areas which are out of bounds to its members.
The High Commissioner is well informed about the plight of deportees and as such willing and ready to offer immeasurable support and advice whenever the Society so asks.
Juncata Juvant Friendly Society is grateful to Mr. and Mrs. Court for the unwavering and continuous support they have given to the Society. Their contribution has been selfless and immeasurable and a beacon of hope for deportees.
