[www.inewsguyana.com] – Director General within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Elisabeth Harper, has expressed concern in response to an article appearing on page 16 of the Kaieteur News of October 9th, 2014, captioned “Govt. orders probe into duty-free concessions… Reports fingers top GRA officials in fraud scheme.” 

Among other things the article states “Another case that is under the spotlight involves a number of SUV’s brought in by a Guyanese diplomat posted to the US. He brought the vehicles, reportedly, applying for it as an investor.  However, the vehicles were sold.”

To this end, Harper clarified that the diplomats that are posted from Guyana to the United States of America are His Excellency Bayney Karran, Ambassador to the United States of America and the OAS, His Excellency George Talbot, Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Mr. Brentnold Evans, Consul General, Consulate in New York, Mr. Mohammed Khan, Deputy Consul General, Foreign Service Officers Troy Torrington, Forbes July, Candida Daniels, Bibi Ally and Shiraz Mohamed. 

“None of these diplomats, I repeat none of these diplomats, has imported to Guyana SUV vehicles. They just cannot do so while they are serving abroad,” she added.

Harper has called on Kaieteur News to issue an apology.

She said too that a phone call to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs would have set the record straight. The Director General pointed out that the omission and subsequent publication of the misleading information have caused undue discomfort to the country’s hard working diplomats.

  3. I am so angry I can scream.
    Lying scumbags always seem to spread dirt and then laugh like hyenas.
    Individuals need to drop lawsuits on the owner and the reporter of this newspaper.
    Until people start paying from their pocket book, nothing will change.
    In the meantime it is on the social media and the same mangy dogs start afresh with fork tongues peddling their lies.

  4. Is it possible that the same people who have been feeding KN the Sattaur emails, and other information about the GRAs shenanigans, also fed KN information about the imported vehicles disclosed in its news report today?
    Was KN misinformed, hence an apology should be forthcoming, or is the DG of Foreign Affairs in for a shock, hence a resignation and a probe should be forthcoming?

  5. KN have their people in all institutions including the judiciary already so you guys have to play ketch-up at all times…KN proved to be bigger than big and have the nasty goods on all those PPPc people..But can KN prove it? oh hell no KN does not have to prove a single thing..Y ???? hear it again !!!! KN boss bigger than big…He knows no one in PPPC Government cant touch he just like how no one in PPPC dare not touch Nigel Hughes and Trotman who are also bigger than big…These big men can say and do as they like because they know no police can touch them and no court will convict them because their cases is already tired and they are not guilty just like how police settle matters of importance with motorists on the ROAD..
