We are utterly concerned at allegations of police, especially those at CID, allegedly beating and torturing persons accused of murder, armed robbery and other crimes. This is a very primitive and simplistic way for the police to obtain evidence or to force someone to sign statements acknowledging that they had committed a crime even though they did not. This should not happen in a modern Guyana and Rohee, the Minister of Home Affairs should be held accountable. Oops, did we say “a modern Guyana!”
The members of the CID who allegedly commit those barbaric acts on individuals without any solid evidence are indecent and are even worse than the wildest animals. This goes to show that some superiors in the force are willing to do anything to prove that they are efficient in solving crime. This is further from the truth because almost everyone knows that the Police Force is a highly incompetent, ineffective, disorganized and corrupt institution. The police are constantly violating the human rights of Guyanese and this will be reported to the United Nations Human Rights Commission as soon as possible.
Instead of beating, torturing and imprisoning innocent Guyanese, the primitive and unprofessional Guyana Police Force should concentrate their efforts to find the killers of the former Minister of Agriculture Satyadeow Sawh, Monica Reece, Seema Mangar and the more than four hundred extra judicial murders that occurred between 2002 and 2006. They should concentrate their efforts on how to respect the rights of citizens and stop their barefaced practice of shaking down people for bribes.
Is this a professional and competent police force? We call on the Commissioner of Police to revisit the Seema Mangar’s case and charge the person(s) involved so that her mother, relatives and friends can have some closure.
Too many murders have gone unsolved in Guyana and for Rohee and Luncheon to say that the opposition is responsible for the crime wave in Guyana is downright foolish. Rohee has failed the people of Guyana and should have been fired for his poor, inept and deficient leadership.
But Ramotar is besieged by the Jagdeoites and dare not attempt to fire Rohee or else his head will be on the platter and he knows it. This is why he could not discipline Rohee after the “no confidence motion” against him or even attempt to reprimand any of Jagdeo’s ministers in his cabinet.. In terms of solving crime in Guyana, Ramotar, Luncheon, Rohee and Brumell are like the blind leading the blind.
There are too many bad eggs in the force that will do anything, including issuing trump-up charges against innocent citizens just to extract bribes from them. This is the naked truth and neither Rohee nor Brummell has established a policy to eradicate such gross misconduct. The police force needs major reform, and proper and professional training.
But change is coming with APNU’s PRO-GUYANA movement whose goal is to promote unity, among the races, reduce crime, eradicate poverty, create jobs for the youths, end racial discrimination, and make university education available to all.
APNU’s PRO-GUYANA movement is premised on the factual belief of respect for individual human rights and freedom and equality for all under the law.
It is a new direction for a nation that is stuck in blatant corrupt practices, racial politics, nepotism, poverty, disunity and police brutality.
