[] – Despite government announcing that it will seek to authenticate the recording between its Attorney General, Anil Nandall and Journalist, Leonard Gildarie, no move has been taken in this direction as yet.

This is according to Editor – in – Chief of the Kaieteur News, Adam Harris, who told iNews today that the government is yet to approach the daily newspaper for a copy of the profanity laced recording, which they are willing to provide.

Harris further explained that the investigation seem to be at a standstill despite all information being provided to the police. He noted that the last he’s heard is that the file is with the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Head of the Presidential Secretariat Dr. Roger Luncheon recently announced that the Administration will seek external help to determine the authenticity of the recording.

Even though Publisher of the newspaper, Glenn Lall and the reporter in question provided several statements to the Police, it is yet unclear as to whether the Attorney General has been questioned by the Police.

Nandlall, who is also the country’s Legal Affairs Minister, is accused of threatening the lives of the newspaper’s Publisher and his staff.

The AG has since admitted to the incident and stated that it was a betrayal since he and the Journalist are friends. He said the conversation was meant to be a private one and not for the public’s ears.
