[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R), David Granger, has refused to apologize for the reported transgressions of the Party while in government for the period 1964 – 1992.
“I’m not going to give any blanket apology,” he told reporters at a media conference this morning (Friday, June 13).
According to the leader, he needs to see the evidence of such claimseven as he called for an investigation of Guyana’s political history right up to 2014. He is confident that once done, it will expose the wrongdoings of other political parties that would require apologies too.
Calls have been mounted, in response to damning allegations which have surfaced in the ongoing Walter Rodney Commission of Inquiry, for the Party which now leads a coalition in the National Assembly to issue a public apology.
“Every government makes mistakes; I’m not denying that the PNC did but it has to be investigated… so if you feel the PNC killed persons or rigged elections then it has to be investigated and we are prepared to deal with the consequences when it is brought to light,” the PNC Leader said.
Granger said he is sure once the history is investigated then there will be a list of apologies.
Since the commencement of the Rodney COI the nation has heard of many wrong doings of the PNC government which may or may not have led to the death of political activists and ordinary citizens.
