[] – Leader of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), Clement Rohee has criticized the Guyana Police Force (GPF) for allegedly accepting interference from the political directorate of the country whilst such steps were rejected when he served as Home Affairs Minister.

Rohee at a press briefing on Monday, December 28, 2015 stated that several developments within the police force have led the PPP to the conclusion that there is political interference.

The PPP Leader pointed out that in the past the police force would have rejected all attempts to relocated the Headquarters for the E & F Divisions to Bartica, but now seemingly have no issue with the announcement of the relocation.

Rohee also stated that since Vice President Khemraj Ramjattan has to report to the Cabinet about the state of affairs of the Police Force on a weekly basis, it is more evidence of political intrusion by the APNU+AFC administration.

He indicated that former President, Donald Ramotar had put systems in place, including integrity screen for officers being promoted and the new Administration should make use of such.

“There has been no indication whether the Granger administration has taken up the mantle and has proceeded in that direction,” said Rohee.

He also claimed that the move by Ramjattan to dismiss Cecil Sullivan from a disciplinary authority within the Public Security Ministry places several investigations in limbo.

“Little or nothing is know about the number of disciplinary matters that have been before the Police Service Commission for some time now…Several disciplinary matters are before a disciplinary authority headed by former Senior Judge Cecil Sullivan,” said Rohee.

He said that Sullivan’s contract was terminated by Minister Ramjattan and as a result the work of the Authority ended prematurely thus placing in limbo all the disciplinary matters that were before Sullivan.

“A disciplinary matter concerning Assistant Commissioner David Ramnarine is among several matters slated for consideration…” said the PPP General Secretary.

Rohee is urging that promotions for persons with such matters be placed on hold until all considerations are complete.



  1. I’m supprised that failure and non entity Rohee has the nerve to comment…. We these not the people who were going to kick in your doors if you didn’t continue voting for that failed corrupt party…. Thank god your gone as another term would have caused a coup and you Rohee wouldn’t have come off well

  2. I believe,the Guyana Police Force has intelligent and professional men who are performing their jobs well.Rohee has no authority whatsoever,to lecture or advise them how they must do their job.He has been a failure as Minister of Home Affairs,and was asked to resign by the then Opposition,because of his ineffectiveness.

  3. All of them gone mad,they still cant believe its over.look out shortly plenty of them will start playing more mad just now,to escape jail,that they can live in the mad house.

  4. REALLY? No wonder you call yourself CREEP. ”He is well respected among the legal fraternity and is known for his integrity”.Ramjattan was in the central committee of the PPP. He became a MOLE for and sold his soul to the American Embassy Officials in Guyana, reporting on everything that were discussed and decisions made at the level of the PPP. How could you clothed Ramjattan as a man of ”integrity”? Rohee does not need a lecture from any of the likes of Ramjattan. He and the NAMAKHARAM Moses are only interested in political power and just wait; both would be dispensed with soon and confined to the dustbin of politics. The PNC does not like to share power with anyone. That’s the psyche of that political outfit that has changed its name from PNC, then PNCR and APNU ( the other within that grouping are nothing more than paper tiger)


  6. Rohee, goat nah bite meh, can’t determine how and when and the course of action for the promotion of the Guyana Police Force, he just making himself a dam jack ass, the APNU/AFC coalition are calling the shots.

  7. Ramjattan is a trained lawyer. He is well respected among the legal fraternity and is known for his integrity.
    Rohee as far as I am aware did not attend any university. He is basically schooled at the PPP headquarters.
    Rohee needs to take lessons from Ramjattan in the rule of law.

  8. Rohee either has a reservoir of political comedy materials or he is a walking, talking comedian who burps and farts laugh out loud one liners.

  9. Oh how quickly we forget! The G.P.F. was controlled by the PPP for 23 years. Jagdeo had Police Chiefs were in his pocket, and under his command. Was Rohee somewhere else when this was happening?
