…says “someone is trying to turn me into a politician”
Head of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) Khurshid Sattaur has denied giving any recent report to a section of the media that he is fearful of his life and that he is concerned about any attempts that could be made by Kaieteur News (KN) publisher Glenn Lall to bring him harm.
In an article published yesterday, it was reported that Sattaur was being vigilant against any attacks that might come his way from the KN publisher. The article quoted Sattaur as saying that he remains ever vigilant, but yet fearful for his life.
However, Sattaur told Kaieteur News yesterday that “someone is trying to make me a politician.” He told this publication that his statement contained in the article, was made more than a month ago following a telephone exchange he had with the KN publisher.
Sattaur said it was not a recent comment made to the media house, and reiterated that he is being made into a politician.
“I am not a politician. I have been a public servant for more than 30 years,” the GRA Commissioner posited.
“I don’t want to be dragged into a political fight. It is harming the organisation and destroying the moral of the staff.”
Asked to comment on the report, Sattaur said that he had nothing to do with the story, that it is an old story.
Sattaur claimed further that he had cause to call the media house which carried the article yesterday and express strongly, his dissatisfaction with their report. He indicated his disgust with how the media house could regurgitate his statements and make it seem recent.
