  1. every single institutions in guyana are creeping with them private and government..working for banks dont pay much ..well the biggest ones are the police and army..those who join comes with a deadly motive..passport office same..airport name it the criminals and their favorite news media are do u think some news media get their info..some criminals sell the info on government to these media.

  2. I’ve noticed with great dismay someone making a large withdrawal at a certain city bank a few months ago and the bank clerk casually placing these large stacks of bills on the counter for all and sundry to see. Can’t these withdrawals be done in private? Who know a similar situation may have occurred that caused this woman to get shot. I hope these shameless scumbags are caught. Praying that this woman makes a full recovery.

  3. Another person of Indian descent shot and robbed.
    This time it is a woman.
    Shame on the dirt bag.
    The Banks must move towards electronic banking.
    When people can bank in safety everyone will win.
