APNU anti-money laundering amendments presented to select committee
-gov’t makes new pitch for consensus
Chief Parliamentary Coun-sel Cecil Dhurjon has delivered awaited draft amendments for the anti-money laundering bill to the special select committee working on the legislation even as government hopes to broker a consensus for needed opposition support.
The committee met last evening and Chairperson Gail Teixeira told Stabroek News afterward that the PPP/C could not close its eyes and ears to the views expressed by the people. “There is a resounding voice in Guyana that says pass that bill so we won’t get blacklisted,” she said.
