[www.inewsguyana.com] – Attorney General, Basil Williams has defended the appointments of Chartered Accountant, Christopher Ram and Former Auditor General, Anand Goolsarran, who are conducting forensic audits of the accounts of several state-owned agencies.

The People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) objected to the two men being tasked with such a responsibility, accusing them of being closely aligned to the APNU+AFC government and as such, expressed no confidence that their findings will be objective.

PPP Executive Anil Nandlall at a Thursday June 18 press conference said, “Look at who they choose to do these audits, two sidekicks of theirs.”

While the political persuasions of both men are no secret, Williams on Friday, June 19 told reporters that he is confident that the two will be able conduct their audits in an impartial manner.

“Are they members of the government? I think they are professionals,” Williams said when probed about a possible conflict of interest.

He explained that neither Ram nor Goolsarran are affiliated with the governing parties in the APNU+AFC coalition.

“I know they are not affiliated with the APNU nor the AFC so I don’t know where the conflict is,” Williams opined.



  1. Nandlall and his troop of thieves are so scared, they don’t want to see their own shadows because they will bawl. If nothing wrong was done during the PPP pick pockets reign of govt, well why worry. But they are worried because everyone of them have corruptions wrapped all over them. So they have a right to be scared. I hope when they are found guilty of corrupt acts, put them in front of Justice Narendra Anand Singh.

  2. Let them audit away now. We will see who will audit them when they run this country bankrupt. Anil right to say they are sidekicks. It’s just a matter of time before they get the real kick in their rear. Ashni is a boss so don’t go trying to compare him to Lalu Ram..EVER!

  3. These thieves are afraid of the light of day so they are coming up with every excuse/ reason why these audits must not be done. That train has left the station boys brace yourselves. The freeness is over. The Piggie bank is closed.
