[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the Opposition, David Granger is calling on Chief of Staff of the Guyana Defence Force (GDF), Brigadier Mark Phillips and Police Commissioner (ag), Seelall Persaud not to allow members of their respective services to be drawn into any unlawful actions against law-abiding citizens.
Granger issued the call a day before holding a planned rally at the Square of the Revolution in rejection of President Donald Ramotar’s decision to prorogue Parliament.
The APNU has also announced a series of peaceful pro democracy protests to raise public awareness on the issues.
A media release from the Party stated that they are concerned and dismayed at newspaper reports that there has been sudden, heightened training by members of the Police Force in Georgetown under the Command of Senior Superintendent, Clifton Hicken.
“Brigadier Granger calls on officers and members of the GDF and GPF not to be swayed by perverse political directives aimed at provoking a disturbance of the peace or causing injury to innocent individuals. All members of the Defence Forces and Disciplined Services are required to behave in a professional manner in the performance of their duties. They are to ensure that the law is enforced and the Constitution is upheld,” the APNU release stated
