  1. Tell that to the opposition lawyers who continuously support the criminals in court. Don’t be so hypocritical like the Ramjattan, Hugh, Chris ram, bond, and Nagamootoo.

  2. What many of you need to do is serve your country,,the time you spend behind a mouse,you could be helping reduce the crime rate ,,and yes the meetings are good and after these meetings who free the criminals,,,

  3. Despite your view of these meeting. It shows that the security force of guyana is open to listen to the president’s view unlike the lame opposition that think they hold executive power with their one seat majority.

  4. These gentlemen must let the people know of the good works they are doing.
    Don’t let Huey and Dewey score political points on your backs.

  5. I new you are a spoil child just like your brothers who jump ship,,you dont like Rohee and Seelall, you confused you want a GUN and they tell you NO,, what will you do with the tools ,,shoot ya family when ya DRUNK,,how many of ya friends got snd they ending up in the criminals hand ,,what you want AK47 or a AR15,,,you not smart enough to carry a firearm,,i new you were jilted by those PPP friends,ya gon get it ,,and when them boys come pis ya pants and give it to them,,,

  6. these meetings are a total waste of time and tax dollars…kit will always take care of kin when it comes to criminality while others will have to sit and wait it out until the bandits come for their belongings…instead of sitting and talking to these clowns why not give the people the tools to defend self family property..
