[www.inewsguyana.com] – Two news Editors from the National Communications Network (NCN) were sent packing on Thursday June 18, after an internal investigation revealed that they had misappropriated funds.
According to information reaching iNews, Edward Layne and Adelle Rampersaud were fired from the state owned company with immediate effect.
iNews understands that both Layne and Rampersaud were unable to fully account for some $80,000 that was supposed to be for the coverage of a People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) elections rally in Bartica earlier this year.
The investigation, according to reports, was ongoing for several weeks within NCN.
Layne was employed as a Senior Editor within the NCN newsroom and Rampersaud was the Radio Editor.
