The US Attorney General, Mr. Eric Holder recent remarks at the Ministerial Global Forum on Fighting Corruption and Safeguarding Integrity, in Doha Qatar gives me hope that Guyana can be the beneficiary of repatriated funds from former and corrupt current government officials.
Mr. Holder noted that, “Corruption erodes trust in government and private institutions alike; it undermines confidence in the fairness of free and open markets; and it breeds contempt for the rule of law. Corruption is, simply put, a scourge on civil society.”
He further noted that, “we must work together to ensure that corrupt officials do not retain the illicit proceeds of their corruption. There is no gentle way to say it: When kleptocrats loot their nations’ treasuries, steal natural resources, and embezzle development aid, they condemn their nations’ children to starvation and disease. In the face of this manifest injustice, asset recovery is a global imperative.” In that regard he announced a redoubled commitment on behalf of the United States Department of Justice to recover such illicit funds
Therefore, I call upon all Guyanese with knowledge and or documentation of fraud by government officials to provide such information to:
US Department of Justice
Criminal Division, Fraud Section
Attention: FCPA Coordinator
10th & Constitution Ave., NW
Bond Building, 4th Floor
Washington, DC 20530

If we provide such evidence to the local authorities, they would find every reason not to prosecute.
It is time to take the campaign against waste, fraud, abuse and corruption in Guyana to those who truly care.
