[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) says it has noted with “deep concern” recent statements emanating from certain misinformed political quarters and “mischief makers who are in the habit of spreading half-truths and distortions with respect to the assignment of radio frequencies.”

A press statement from Freedom House noted that the Party has taken note of the persistent accusations levelled against former President Bharrat Jagdeo that he “gave away Guyana’s patrimony” when he sought to approve spectrum space for radio broadcasts in Guyana.

Approvals to broadcast via Radio were given to ten (10) persons or entities in 2011 after the passage of the Broadcasting Act 2011. Prior to this date the only entity broadcasting via Radio was NCN.

With specific reference to Radio Guyana Inc, the Party pointed out that this approval was given in compliance of an order of Court in a matter that had been filed by Mr. Anthony Vieira prior to his selling his communications empire to Dr. Rangisinghi Ramroop.

“Dr Ramroop is always referred to by the former President’s detractors as his ‘best friend’. Well even Presidents deserve best friends, but the approval to operate a radio station given to Dr. Ramroop’s company was not given by virtue of friendship. Instead it was by virtue of a Court Order,” the PPP statement noted.

It further noted, “Mr Anthony Vieira, truly one of the pioneers of Television Broadcasting in Guyana, notwithstanding how many copyright infringement laws he may have broken, now by his writings and utterings, seems to want to want his cake having already eaten it.”
