Interesting to know the stats on who are committing the crimes in Berbice..No wonder most Berbicians want to ‘go away’ to America.
None of my family are involved in DIRTY living,its was a HIT not RUA,
Well I was a businessman in Guyana in the seventy, eighty PNC time. I had to run from there to the US. Now Granger is president same killing. So sad. Thank god I am not there. So sad for those business people
When there was 2-3 robbery in Riumvelt there was rapid response and pursue of the criminals. There is no more reported incidents. Are we missing something?
Smh dirty money can’t leave the country so they have to kill each other
The dead man should be your father brother or son or wife then your dum behind would be yelling differently.The APNU thugs are on the go.
What about the wife? Was she assaulted or injured ? If not,the police need to investigate if the wife was involved in the setting up.
If the APNU/AFC with the help of the ABC and GECOM can steal a whole country and the ordinary thief knows about this, they also want to have a share of the spoils. Unfortunately, innocent businessmen/women and other hard working, law abiding citizens are the victims. This administration had all the plans and policies to arrest the crime spree during the election period. The opposite has happened and they still have no plan in place that is working. They put in place ‘operation dragnet’. That is being used as a cover to SPY on former heads of government institutions and former ministers. An illegal government with no respect from the citizens. Guyana is in a reverse gear…back to the days of kick-down-the-door bandits, press muzzling, state terrorism, guylines. Watch out for a militarised style of government.
The government need to put a lot of effort to curb crime. It’s spiraling out of control and in turn hurt the economy and tourism. Why don’t they get the foreign friends to donate equipment and vehicles to help out. It can be controlled, we just need the resources. My question is, Is the Government serious about stopping crime?
This is how these ppl do business. They drive fear into the ppl. ‘We have to stand up to this regime and let them know we are the ppl that put them there to serve us not the other way around –its the only choice we have now before its too late..The scum bags members of this government should never be allowed to rest until we the ppl needs are met–
Borndumb its a suspected HIT find out what the creep was involved in,dirty business,,,AS Usual,,,,that has nothing to with pnc or ppp ,,you will blame the government for your dead brain just now, the lawlessness is slowly coming to an end,,,get use to it
Robbery, kick down the door, and murder of business people is here to stay as long as the PNC is in control of the army?
Why is it that soldiers spying on people and cannot see when Venezuela helicopter landed in Guyana?
SHAME ON THE PNC!!
