[www.inewsguyana.com] – There may be three dozens of more recordings involving several government ministers and public officials with reporters and among themselves.
iNews was reliably informed that some of these recordings might have been distributed to certain local and international entities for review and assessment.
The source could not disclose how the recordings were made; however, they were said to have been made over a prolonged period of time but “intensified in recent weeks.”
While not revealing the actual content of the recordings, the source noted that in some instances “these can be damning and politically embarrassing.”
The source went on to point out that several of these may become public “should the President and his Party fail to take action against Attorney General, Anil Nandlall regarding his conversation with senior reporter of the Kaieteur News Leonard Gildarie.”
The profanity laced recording between these two went viral last week, resulting in a police complaint being laid against the AG by Publisher of the newspaper, Glenn Lall.
Nandall, who is also the country’s Legal Affairs Minister, is accusing of making violent threats against the lives of Lall and his staff. The AG has since admitted to the conversation under the pretext that it was “manipulated” and that he was “illegally recorded.”
A wide cross section of society has already made calls for him to resign, including the joint Opposition and the Guyana Bar Association.
However, President Donald Ramotar made it clear that he will not fire Nandlall and instead chooses to stand behind him, stating that it is illegal to record anyone without their permission.
The President has refused to deal with the contents of the conversation.
