…unwillingness to have proper drug interdictions
The administration yesterday came in for severe criticism yesterday for its inability to reorient the Guyana Police Force to a service, when Shadow Home Affairs Minister Deborah Backer took the floor in the national Assembly to make her presentation to the 2010 debates. The MP stressed that this has caused the Force to become enveloped in brutality
She said that her party has warned over the years that if this is not done the Guyana Police Force will continue its descent.
Backer used the example of the Kaieteur News photo of the tortured teen again, slamming the Guyana Police Force’s instinctive response of how the newspaper acquired the photograph.
“Who knows if KN did not get the picture what would have been swept under?”
She also chided the administration for what she called an unwillingness to have proper drug interdictions.
Backer said that for too long the small traffickers are nabbed, but the large shipments manage to make their way out of the country.She said that there is an inconsistency, in that the Home Affairs Minister has accepted that the drug trade is a big security threat but the National Drug Strategy Master Plan has died.
Backer also drew reference to the Robert Simels trial which she called an exploding bomb telling the House that there was testimony to the fact that Shaheed ‘Roger’ Khan had government backing to fight the Taliban (reference to the Buxton gang.)
Backer also recalled the letter which she said was purportedly signed by a minister, giving government consent for the purchase of what has now been identified as the infamous spy computer.
She drew reference to the fact that a co director in the company that made the spyware had even testified to meeting that minister among other government officials.
Backer lambasted what she called inaction in the face of evidence implicating the minister.
The Shadow Foreign Affairs Minister also brandished the Dossier which she said that the government did not like but was all over the world.
