[] – Tourism Minister Cathy Hughes has intervened in a case where Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan had the skin of one of Guyana’s national animals adorning his wall.

Ramjattan had sparked controversy on social media after several photos surfaced with the skin of a Jaguar adorning the walls of his office.

Persons were particularly upset given that the Jaguar is a national animal and is also an endangered species.

When questioned at a press conference on Thursday, Hughes stated that she had contacted the Minister on the issue.

“I could show you an email that I sent to Minister Ramjattan saying Minister, you need to take that skin down off the wall,” said Hughes.

She stated that Ramjattan was told of the inappropriateness of the skinned animal on his wall.

“In this day and age, when we are talking about tourism, about conserving, about specie about sustainable preservation, it is totally inappropriate,” said the Tourism Minister.
