[www.inewsguyana.com] – A man claiming to be an ex-army major whose name was given as Clive McDonald was arrested by the police on Wednesday morning after he visited the private residence of President David Granger and reportedly behaved in a disorderly manner.
According to information received, the man, while expressing himself with the use of expletives, claimed that he was robbed of six ounces of gold. He further stated that he visited the Alberttown Police Station to report the matter and the ranks there did not give him “satisfaction” and he did not like the way he was treated.
Army sources who are familiar with senior and junior ranks both past and present told iNews that the name Clive McDonald does not ring a bell, suggesting that the man may not have been in the employ of the Guyana Defence Force.
Commander of the ‘A’ Division, Clifton Hicken confirmed that the matter is engaging the attention of the police and that statements have to be submitted by the ranks who were on duty at the President’s home at the time of the incident.
President David Granger, a former Brigadier of the Guyana Defence Force, has repeatedly urged persons to uphold the law since the administration will not condone unlawful actions.
