[www.inewsguyana.com] – Home Affairs Minister and General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C), Clement Rohee has sternly cautioned Leader of the Alliance for Change (AFC), Khemraj Ramjattan.
Rohee said, “Ramjattan should be the last to threaten anybody because people with glass house don’t throw stones.”
The Minister was making reference the Ramjattan’s threat to lodge a formal complaint with the police for what he said was the illegal spending of public funds by Finance Minister, Dr. Ashni Singh.
“He has a high glass house around him, especially in relation to the Specialty Hospital,” Rohee said. When asked what he was specifically referring to, he said, “ask me no questions, I’ll tell you no lie.”
According to Ramjattan, Dr. Singh committed a crime when he illegally spent $4.5B from the coffers when the National Assembly had denied approval for such expenditure.
Ramjattan, who is a practicing Attorney – at – Law said despite the matter being in the public domain, he will be preparing a formal complaint to be submitted to the Guyana Police Force since in previous times when illegalities are uncovered and made public, the Police would in response say that no formal complaint was lodged with them.
To this end, Rohee said he is confident that the police have the capacity to investigate such matters.
“I would be disappointed if after 175 years, under my watch, the police can’t investigate such a crime.”
