[] – An injunction has been granted barring Johnny Anthony Welshman from publishing whether in the print or electronic media any material relating to allegations he has made against Alliance for Change (AFC) Executive Member and Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman.

According to a press release from the AFC this evening (Monday, September 22), the injunction was granted today in the High Court.

The AFC noted that Welshman has also been ordered to remove all malicious content from his Facebook Page.

In his Ex Parte Affidavit in support of the application for the injunction, Trotman has also sought damages in excess of $50 million for libel contained in a statements allegedly made by Welshman and published in the Stabroek News, Guyana Times and on Welshman’s Facebook page.

Meanwhile, the Alliance For Change expresses unequivocal support for it Co-Founder and Speaker of the National Assembly against the recent spurious and unfounded allegations leveled against him.

The young man in question made damning revelations on his Facebook Page against the Speaker, stating that he had sexual intercourse with him some ten years ago. He has since made a report to the Guyana Police Force.

Trotman on the other hand, has denied the allegations, claiming that the young man is unstable “…who sadly, appears to have a troubled mind. I categorically deny his wicked assertions.”

The Speaker believes the young man was motivated by politicians to make these accusations against him in an effort to divert attention from a serious upcoming matter in the House when Parliament reconvenes.


  1. I don’t believe this crap about Trotman for one moment even. Ten years ago, he was a dashing looking man that any woman would want. I know him personally, very decent person.

  2. observer u must be born last night not to know many men like trotman does marry to save face.they just dont want to come out de closet because of their status in society. my good friend owner of rainbow terrace is gay but married to a gorgeous lady. there are many like them. they fooling themselves and only fooling people like you.

  3. MIGHT IS RIGHT, as the saying goes.But another saying is,HOW ARE THE MIGHTY FALLEN! As I said before,if Trotman really wants to prove his innocence let him take a lie detector test. The victim says he is willing to take a lie detector test and has challenged trotman to take one also.Bet Trotman will never agree.I say no more.

  4. Like every time I believe it cannot get worse in Gt, I am disappointed. I told a friend today that he better get cracking he said he rich and he doing well in Gt. If you live in a pig sty then you are a pig, you may be a rich pig but a pig never the less.

  5. There has NEVER, ever, been any hint of Mr Trotman showing any interest in same sex anything. In fact, as far as I know, Mr Trotman is a married man and father. (Not that there aren’t men who go both ways.) But my point is that there has NEVER ever been any indication of Mr Raphael Trotman being a child molester. NEVER. So this ‘thunder bolt out of a clear blue sky’ must be thoroughly investigated and have the truth come out.

  6. he seh he seh. see how quick dem move to stem de flow of info to gag de victim. de truth must come out soon. unless dem settle wid de victim.
