Granger seeking inquiry into 2004-10 crimes
-cites Sawh killing, massacres
Leader of the Opposition David Granger is to move a motion on Thursday seeking to have government appoint a Commission of Inquiry to probe criminal violence from 2004 to 2010 ranging from the killing of Minister Satyadeow Sawh to the massacres at Lusignan, Bartica and Lindo Creek in 2006.
The opposition has long called for such an inquiry but had been rebuffed by the previous Bharrat Jagdeo administration.
With a wafer thin majority, the opposition will likely succeed in having the motion passed but will then have to face the prospect that the government will simply ignore it.
