[www.inewsguyana.com] – The People’s Progressive Party (PPP) has revealed its intention to use a number of revelations against Glenn Lall – Publisher of popular daily newspaper Kaieteur News – along with members of the Alliance For Change (AFC) during the lead up to general and regional elections.
General Secretary of the Party, Clement Rohee told reporters at a news conference on Monday, November 10 that the PPP is going into elections mode with lots of “goodies.”
“Glenn Lall’s attempt…Kaieteur News’ attempt to steal tax payers’ money…we will use that for our elections campaign, we will use that. We’re going into elections with other things too…Kaieteur News and GRA…we’re going into elections with a host of other issues, which we have been exposing along the way. We’re going into elections with a host of things about the AFC; Mr Nigel Hughes, Mr Ramjattan, Mr Nagamootoo; we have a whole host of goodies,” Rohee told reporters.
Recently, Lall and his spouse were charged with evading taxes. Both defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges. The charges stemmed from the importation of two Lexus vehicles by Narootandeo and Gharbassi Brijnanans who are friends of the Lalls.
Additionally, he also revealed the Party’s intention to use the recent shooting at Congress Place, Sophia during the Congress of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR).
“That sounds like a nice one, doesn’t it? Like the sweets churn out by Kaieteur Sweets,” Rohee said.
Only July 27, a single shot was fired after things spiraled out of control at the Party’s headquarters. The charges have since been dismissed against the alleged shooter.
