Minister of Human Services and Social Security Priya Manickchand has blasted columnist and University of Guyana lecturer Frederick Kissoon who in an article (March 29), written by him, erroneously attributed comments to her during the recent debate on the Court of Appeal (Amendment) Bill.
Kissoon in his article had suggested that Manickchand had made comments on the bill as it relates to the Director of Public Prosecutions and a quest for more power.
Manickchand supplied this newspaper with the Hansard (verbatim record) of her presentation which makes no reference to what Freddie Kissoon made mention of.
In fact, it was another member of the Government benches who made mention of the fact that the DPP had appeared before the select committee and made a presentation.
When confronted with the evidence by this newspaper, Kissoon accepted that he had made a mistake and sincerely sought to have an apology publicly issued to the Minister.
Kissoon insists no harm was intended by the statements he made and attributed to the Minister.
