[] – Press and Publicity Officer attached to the Office of the President, Kwame McCoy has denied involvement in the burglary of the Pitbull vehicle belonging to the lone protester outside the Office of the Attorney General, Courtney Crum-Ewing.

Crum – Ewing had expressed fear for his life during an interview with iNews yesterday, following the burglary of his vehicle, in which he alleged that three men broke into the bus and stole the Computer Box on Monday evening (December 22).

When asked if he has any idea who might have committed the crime, he said, “I have a problem with the conduct of Kwame McCoy. Kwame McCoy made threats to my life. I reported that to the police, nothing was ever done.

Following the publication of the article, McCoy contacted iNews and cleared his name. He said that Crum – Ewing has a clear vendetta against the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) government since he was fired from the Guyana Defence Force.

“It’s obvious he has commenced his vendetta campaign against the government. He did promise to do so when he was fired from the army; he was fired for serious wrong doings and malpractices,” McCoy told iNews.

McCoy believes that Crum – Ewing is using his [McCoy] name to gain publicity.

“It is obvious as well that…he does recognize that there is value to my name and so he tries to drag me into his story…a concocted story…he knows my name will give him publicity.

“The truth is I have no interest in Crum – Ewing and what protest action he is undertaking. He has a right as a citizen of this country; I am happy he is exercising that right under the PPP/C administration, the very administration he seeks to carry out his vendetta and revenge campaign,” McCoy told iNews.

He denied threatening the man. “In no away am I aware that I have made threats to him. I don’t know the gentleman, other than knowing information about him.”

For several weeks now, the former soldier has been peacefully protesting in front the AG’s Chambers, calling for him to resign, following the revelation of a taped telephone conversation between Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister, Anil Nandlall and Kaieteur News’ Reporter, Leonard Gildarie.


  1. Give no crumbs to Mr Crum.
    If he wants to pick a bone, that is a different story.
    That is not his fight or is he employed by Glen Lall?

  2. This “story” of McCoy threatening everybody is becoming too regular. It is reminiscent of the style of the old PNC propaganda mischief makers who obtain much glee in writing wicked stories about others. McCoy should ignore these wicked fellows and carry on with his life. “If you stop to kick at every dog that bark at you , you wouldn’t get anywhere.”

  3. Why is this soldier man running around making allegations. Take Mccoy to court and let the court decide. Opposition have all the best lawyers. Unfortunately he knows that he has no ground.
