Acting Top Cop denies wrong doing.

The Guyana Police Force is responding to two articles published in today’s Edition of local newspapers under the captions “Acting Top Cop halts gold dealer’s arrest” and “Acting Top Cop orders return of high-powered rifles seized at party” respectively.

The Acting Commissioner of Police, Mr. David Ramnarine, DSM, wishes to categorically state that the two (2) firearms which Mr. Saddiqi Rasul and his Security were found in possession of, are licensed and in fact Mr. Rasul is still in possession of several firearms which he is fully and properly licensed to carry, despite the recent revocation of several licences.

It would have been a grave injustice to allow colleague members of the Force to take a course of action on the night in question which may have resulted in Mr. Rasul and his Security being kept in custody when in fact it was not necessary and would have thrown the Guyana Police Force into disrepute, for highly unprofessional action.

There are persons who unfortunately are erroneously informed and mistakenly believe that all the licences were revoked.
