[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Press Association (GPA) has expressed its alarmed at statements purportedly those of Attorney General, Anil Nandlall contained in a recorded telephone conversation which has been released by the Kaieteur News.

According to the GPA, the recording suggests that the Attorney General is aware of a sinister plot against Kaieteur News publisher, Glenn Lall and advised a senior reporter to leave the organization as soon as possible, because it would be sooner rather than later that men with “weapons” would walk into the newspaper’s offices, which also houses its press.

In the recording, the voice alleged to be that of the Attorney General also suggests that because of the newspaper’s reporting on members of his family, he will “war” against Kaieteur News, because he is of the ancient Indian “Chatree” class.

“The GPA is shocked that these reckless, irresponsible and outrageous statements could be made by the sitting Attorney General of Guyana and calls on the Government of Guyana to condemn the AG’s remarks, ask him to withdraw them in light of these revelations. As an attorney, the AG should know that the license to practice law is not license to break it,” the GPA statement noted.

The GPA called on the Guyana Police Force to thoroughly investigate the complaints made by Kaieteur News’s Glenn Lall regarding threats to his life, his family and the staff of the Kaieteur News.

The Guyana Press Association also expressed its solidarity with Kaieteur News and all media workers and urges them to remain vigilant.

According to the Association, Journalists in Guyana should be free to practice their profession in an environment free of fear, intimidation and threats.

“To paraphrase Martin Carter, ‘they cannot kill our thoughts nor murder what we write’.”

    This so called GPA never uttered a word the last time they heard PNC members talking and planning sinister things on tape recording.
    GPA to former police commissioner—Winston Felix..Rajah Khan tape..
    GPA to sitting PNC member ————Basil Williams- Rajah Khan tape..
    GPA to TV owner Sharma…Threats made on his TV by caller to the kill the former president…..
    GPA to Sharma for showing a tape recording of the former president and prime minister dancing at the hotel Peg while Guyanese buried in flood waters 05 but the tape recording Sharma showed was of another time.
    But GPA went into serious action when Sharma was found guilty and was suspended..
