  1. Nandalall is not in jail because under the PPP everyone enjoys the right to defend themselves from any allegation. During the PNC days everyone had to do what the PNC said to do. If you didn’t support PNC you were considered a criminal. However that is the behavior of the combine opposition today. If I was to think like you did. The why is Greenidge not in jail for running guyana bankrupt, why is Granger not in jail for preventing democracy, why is Nigel Hugh not in jail for fixing the jury of the lusignan trial, why is Nagamootoo not in jail for collecting bribe from the west Berbice residents for filling out couple forms, why is Trotman not is jail for sexually abusing johnny, why is Ramjattan and Cathy Hugh not in jail for disobeying their Parliamentary regulations (lobbying for clients) and why is Winston Felix and basil Williams not in jail for their involvement in the Kaieteur killings.
