The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) yesterday jumped to the defence of the Director of Public Prosecutions
(DPP) Shalimar Ali-Hack saying that she has every right to advise the Guyana Police Force in favour of Attorney General, Anil Nandlall.
Speaking at the PPP’s weekly press conference, the party’s General Secretary, Clement Rohee, said that it stands ready to defend “hardworking professionals and those who hold public offices in the discharge of their professional duties.” His reference was to the DPP.
Rohee told the media that his party is disappointed but not surprised by the position adopted by both the Alliance For Change and A Partnership for National Unity on the advice offered by the DPP “on the allegations made by the learned Attorney General Mr. Anil Nandlall against the publisher of Kaieteur News.”
This is with regard to the threats Nandlall made to the lives of Kaieteur News staff.
Rohee said that it seems that for the political opposition, the only correct and acceptable advice that could be offered by the DPP is one that puts Nandlall, and by extension the PPP/C administration in a bad light “even though the DPP took pains to clarify the reasons for arriving at her decision on the matter.”
Rohee said that the PPP fully supports the DPP on the advice she offered. He claimed that it is consistent with the views of a significant body of public opinion to the effect that the allegations against the AG were politically motivated
and designed to denigrate the AG and the office he holds.
Rohee said that the PPP condemns the “unwarranted and unsubstantiated attacks on the DPP’s Chambers and other Government officials whose only crime is to uphold the integrity of their offices and their professionalism.”
He called on the opposition parties and other to desist from making statements that are designed to attack the professionalism and integrity of public officers.
Rohee said that the attacks on the DPP’s Chambers, is yet another attempt to subvert the justice system.
