[www.inewsguyana.com] – The lone protestor outside the Office of the Attorney General, Courtney Crum-Ewing was taken into custody today, Thursday December 11 at the Brickdam Police Station for allegedly breaching the ‘peace.’
For several weeks now, the former soldier has been peacefully protesting in front the AG’s Chambers, calling for him to resign, following the revelation of a taped telephone conversation between Attorney General and Legal Affairs Minister, Anil Nandlall and Kaieteur News’ Reporter, Leonard Gildarie.
Crum-Ewing was taken into custody at about 10:30 hours and was placed in handcuffs at the Police Station up to the time this story was published. When iNews spoke to him via telephone he explained that he was not told why he was detained and whether he will be charged.
“The ranks at the Brickdam Police station are waiting for instructions from upstairs, they keep pointing upstairs, I don’t know who is upstairs, but they keep saying they are waiting for instructions; it’s in connection with breach of peace…and some kind of noise incident was reported,” Crum – Ewing said.
According to the protestor, “I have been out there over a month and I have been conducting my protest action the same way every day; I didn’t do anything today that I haven’t done before…there is a police there that monitors my protest action every day, he comes out in the morning and leaves after I would have left. He came to me and said he got a call from Brickdam and he was told to accompany me to the station, so we got into my vehicle and we drove here and I have been here since.”
Crum – Ewing was held for questioning on December 05 at the Brickdam Police Station for using the washroom in the compound of the Attorney General.
