  1. RIP in peace Mr. Barrow. You were providing a service to the people of Guyana. I hope that what you may call it organisation see it fit to announce your life matter too.

  2. Ow Mr King Kong, you obviously HAVE NOT properly read the terms-of-reference of the Presidential releases; it is the NON-VIOLENT convicted men who he has released.

  3. And the genius for a president will release these good for nothing from prison to commit more crimes–what a shame a hard working man lost his life when will this end?
