Two Members of Parliament for the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), Dharamkumar Seeraj and Nigel Dharamlall, have recently received letters from the Consular Section of the United States Embassy in Georgetown, informing them that their non-immigrant visas have been revoked.
According to a statement from the PPP/C Thursday night, the letters further state that the Consular Section is now in receipt of information which it did not have at the time that the visas were granted.
The Opposition Party said similar letters were received by the other persons who were slapped with fabricated charges in relation to the Guyana Rice Development Board (GRDB) probe.
The PPP/C noted that all the persons charged have pleaded not guilty to those charges and, therefore, were presumed innocent until proven guilty.
“They have instructed their Attorneys-at-Law to write to the Consular Section of the said Embassy requesting the new information which it has received.” The PPP/C said it would pursue this matter as far as possible.
