Revocation of LEAD official’s work permit contrary to gov’t commitment to review project
– US Embassy
The Donald Ramotar administration’s decision to revoke the work permit of the head of a controversial USAID-funded democracy project here was contrary to its commitment for a review of the project, the US Embassy said yesterday.
In its first statement following the announcement that the work permit for the Head of the Leadership and Democracy (LEAD) project, Glenn Bradbury had been revoked for activities that offended the Laws of Guyana, the Embassy said the United States regretted the decision taken by the Government of Guyana. “The decision to revoke Mr. Bradbury’s permit is contrary to our understanding of the Government of Guyana’s commitment to review together the LEAD program and to the spirit of the discussions proposed by the Government of Guyana itself,” the statement added.
