[www.inewsguyana.com] – Speaker of the National Assembly and Executive Member of the Alliance for Change (AFC), Raphael Trotman has vehemently denied claims that he sexually assaulted a young man.

In a statement issued today, Sunday, September 21, Trotman said “a malicious and unfounded allegation of sexual molestation has been made against me by an unstable young man who sadly, appears to have a troubled mind. I categorically deny his wicked assertions.”

The Speaker believes the young man was motivated by politicians to make these accusations against him in an effort to divert attention from a serious upcoming matter in the House when Parliament reconvenes.

“Unfortunately, he seems to have been conveniently encouraged by manipulative and diabolic political forces. Conveniently, such scandalous assertions are obviously intended to provide a timely distraction from the serious prevailing political situation in Guyana, which imminently requires me as Speaker of the National Assembly to guide the ship of the nation’s parliament through the strongest test to Guyana’s constitutional democracy: the debate of a no confidence motion,” Trotman noted in the statement.

The Speaker made it clear that as a true patriot of Guyana, he will not allow the office of Speaker of the National Assembly to be compromised or be denigrated by false accusations for political expediency.

“There is absolutely no truth in the allegation, and I am confident that the masterminds and supporters of this dastardly plot will soon be exposed.”

He has since called for a thorough and professional investigation into the allegation and even quoted a biblical scripture in his defense, “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Only recently, the AFC had accused the ruling People’s Progressive Party of attempting to bribe three Parliamentarians $30M to vote against the no confidence motion.

  1. He said, he said. The truth is somewhere in between. An investigation is needed. Many years ago a certain young man made a similar assertion against Jeremy Thorpe, leader of the Liberal Party in England. Mr. Thorpe resigned. Will Trotty do the same? We are in for interesting times.

  2. I do not believe a word of it, but it just shows the stinkers who run for office in Guyana. They will stoop low to get what they want.

  3. On another website the accusations and blaming of the PPP can be seen in full blast! Why don’t they think it’s CRAPNU who are the masterminds behind this tasteless act?

  4. look out trots .ramjatan out for his pound of flesh. ramjatan out while you still in. for now. only when one in big troble one find god. stop with this god thing. god ent gat nothing to do with this. u were accused before. accused again . yall de loving it when it was uncle Qwame.

  5. MR. SPEAKER, YOU ARE CONFIDENT THAT YOU ARE INNOCENT. SO, PLEASE DO THE RIGHT THING TO PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE.FIRSTLY ,RESIGN AND ALLOW THE POLICE TO DO THEIR JOB. SECONDLY,DO A LIE DETECTOR TEST WITH AN EXPERT FROM THE USA. THEN ,ASK THE POLICE TO GET A PSYCHIATRIST TO EXAMINE THE YOUNG MAN’S HEAD. IF HE IS SUFFERING FROM DELUSIONS PRAY FOR HIM. IF YOU ARE PROVEN INNOCENT THIS MINOR EXPERIENCE WILL MAKE YOU A STRONGER PERSON. I SAY ‘IF.’
