George Melville, the Chief Executive Officer of iNet Communications this past week boasted that the entire government
runs on the infrastructure of that Internet Service Provider but this claim is being rebuffed.
Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon, this week denied knowledge of the existence of iNet Communications.
He said that at least at Office of the President it is the Guyana Telephone and Telegraph (GT&T) that provides internet services for that entity.
Dr Luncheon told this publication he can clearly testify to the fact that each month he would sign documentations for payments to be made to GT&T for the provision of internet service.
When questioned about iNet and Melville’s brag of supplying the entire government of internet services, Dr Luncheon appeared to be at a loss. He enquired who Melville was.
Melville earlier this week boasted of supplying every Government Ministry and department including the Ministry of Finance’s Budgeting and Planning section.
Melville supplied a list of customers which iNet Communications would service inclusive of Office of the President.
According to Melville, the company’s clientele includes the Government of Guyana; Ministry of Finance; Parliament Building; Supreme Court; Director of Public Prosecutions; Guyana Defence Force; Guyana Police Force; Public Service Commission; Police Service Commission; Office of The President; Ministry of Foreign Affairs; Deeds Registry; Georgetown Public Hospital; Office of The Ombudsman/Appellate Court; Ministry of Human Services/Labour; Teaching Service Commission; Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport; Ministry of Agriculture; Ministry of Local Government; Ministry of Home Affairs; Guyana Elections Commission; Office of the Auditor General; Ministry of Education; Machinery Corporation; Demerara Mutual Life; Acnet Café;

Global Technology acquired iNet Communications in January 2013 shortly after Dr. Ranjisinghi ‘Bobby’ Ramroop would have become a director and shareholder in the company. It was incorporated in 2006 and struck off of the companies’ list on many occasions.
Ramroop is the best friend of former President Bharrat Jagdeo and has been implicated in a number of questionable arrangements related to companies he owns or has controlling interest, including New Guyana Pharmaceutical Corporation (New GPC) and the Guyana Times Inc., among others.
At the time when Ramroop joined up with Global Technology, one of his close associates and partners, Roopnarine Ramcharitar, also joined up.
