In response to the unnecessary, but predictable Editor’s Note attached to my letter “How can Nandlall be given a free pass?” (May 16, 2018), it was obvious that this newspaper wants its readers to accept the ridiculous explanation that (in my jeering voice, very slowly) “Nandlall was asked about the sedition charges?”
Okay, so even if that’s the case, then why wasn’t it published in the most recent article where he was allowed to burp out (yuk!) hypocritical statements about the Cyber Crime Bill without the readers being informed that his PPP committed the said act when they charged three persons with sedition.
Editor, if in fact Nandlall has admitted to the charges being used (abused) under the PPP regime, then his statement should have been published. Also, Nandlall is in absolutely no position to conveniently decide on, as it suits his political agenda, when ‘Guyana should not look back.’
At least, he should read up on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission which was created in 1995 in order “to help heal the country and bring about a reconciliation of its people by uncovering the truth about human rights violations that had occurred during the period of apartheid…” Gosh, Nandlall and the PPP have so much to answer for!
That said, with all the brutal crimes committed under the despotic PPP/C regime; the questionable deaths of over four hundred citizens, political assassination, death squads, tortures, numerous trumped-up charges against political opponents, etc. Oh, and not to forget an audio taped conversation threatening the lives of reporters and staff of the very Kaieteur News.
So, Editor, Anil Nandlall does not get to decide on when Guyana should move forward or not. At least, for a start he should apologize to the three persons that were charged with Sedition under the PPP regime.
Finally, it’s funny how every time I hear the nursery rhyme ‘Itsy Bitsy Spider’ it reminds me so much of Anil, and his attempt to make himself relevant in the political arena.
