The Guyana Police Force (GPF) has launched an investigation into an alleged assassination plot against the President of Guyana, David Granger.
This was confirmed by State Minister, Joseph Harmon today during a Post Cabinet Briefing at the Ministry of the Presidency.
According to Harmon, the investigation has reached a stage where advice is now being sought from the police legal advisors; however he refrained from disclosing more information, such as the identities of the alleged perpetrators.
“Since this is one of these on-going investigations, I don’t think that we’re at liberty to disclose in any greater details, the nature of that investigation,” he said.
Nevertheless, he expressed full confidence in the security forces to protect the President as well as all Government officials from what he deemed as misguided persons.
“It is important that we understand that while we have a very popular president, that people all around this country love him and embrace him, and that sometimes there are some people who are misguided” said Harmon.
Attempts to contact the authorities in the Force for more information on the alleged plot proved futile at this juncture.
