[www.inewsguyana.com] – Leader of the Working People’s Alliance (WPA) Dr Rupert Roopnaraine says that he is not at all surprised by the new revelations coming to the fore concerning the assassination of political activist and WPA empathiser, Ronald Waddell.

As the squealing Sean Hinds saga continues in Guyana, the names of the persons involved in the murder were revealed on HGPTV Nightly News.

Hinds, a former policeman, during the interview with Travis Chase named two high ranking policemen as the murderers of Waddell, who was gunned down in front his home on January 30, 2006.

Waddell was also an Opposition activist, who was very outspoken against the People’s Progressive Party/Civic government. Back in 2006, the police had reported that Waddell was getting into his car in his garage at about 8:00 hrs when two men armed with a point .38 and .32 pistols, emerged from a car and shot him 13 times before escaping.

Hinds admitted that he was given the contract as a death squad member to take out Waddle but he did not get a chance to because the two policemen did it before him.

When questioned by iNews about the revelations on Thursday, Dr Roopnaraine said that he always held the opinion that there was nothing random about Waddell’s death.

“I can’t say the revelations have come as a complete surprise to me because we have always believed that it was a conspiracy at very high levels,” said Dr Roopnaraine.
