[www.inewsguyana.com] – The United States Embassy in Georgetown has chastised local newspaper, Kaieteur News for publishing a fictional article in its Wednesday, April 01 edition under the headline: “US revokes four Gov’t officials’ visas” that was published today was purely a work of fiction.
A statement from the Embassy made it clear that it has not cancelled any visas of high-ranking Government officials nor is the US Federal Bureau of Investigation in country questioning individuals as the article states.
According to the US Embassy, the newspaper admitted that the article was an “April Fool’s day joke.”
“Kaieteur News exercised poor judgment in printing this article under the auspices of an April Fools joke. The US Embassy calls for an immediate retraction of the article by Kaieteur News in both their online and print versions of their newspaper,” the Embassy noted in a press statement.
