The Stabroek News is attempting to be mischievous by reporting in an article in its January 11, 2010 edition that Mahaicony resident, Mr. Jairam Mohabeer, had directed a threat to President Bharrat Jagdeo during his visit to the community on Sunday.
This comment was made by Office of the President last night.
A release issued by Office of the President focused on the article titled, ‘’Mahaicony man arrested after threat at meeting with President’’.
“(It) erroneously stated that the man Mr. Jairam Mohabeer threatened to shoot the President.
“During the meeting with the President and farmers of Mahaicony, a resident brought to his attention an issue whereby the community was being denied access to a shallow well on Mr. Mohabeer’s land.
“President Jagdeo suggested he may have to compulsorily acquire the land to ensure the community’s interest was protected if Mr. Mohabeer was not co-operating with the community for which the well was intended.
“After the meeting Mr. Mohabeer said he was going to kill anyone who goes on his land. The man did not direct his threat to President Bharrat Jagdeo as promoted by Stabroek News,” The statement added.
