People’s Progressive Party (PPP) employee Jason Abdulla was arrested last evening at Freedom House.
Reports are members of the Guyana Police Force turned up at Freedom House, Robb Street and arrested Abdulla without informing him of the reasons for his arrest.
INews was told that the employee was taken to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Headquarters, Eve Leary then transferred to Grove/Diamond Police Station.
The Party in a statement late Monday night said that a lawyer representing the interests of the employee was told by the Police that the officers who arrested him had left the station and no further information was available.
At a recent picketing exercise in front of the office of the Chairman of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), Kingston, the Police attempted to arrest Abdulla but subsequently retreated.
“This development reinforces the suspicion of a carefully orchestrated diabolic plan by those in authority to target and harass people associated with the PPP. This vicious ongoing political witch-hunt is a serious cause for concern especially since the Police are being used to carry out these despicable acts,” the PPP said on Monday night.
