[www.inewsguyana.com] – 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.

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.
