Guyana Bar condemns racist editorial in state paper
The Guyana Bar Association (GBA) yesterday called on President Donald Ramotar to dissociate himself from a racist editorial in the July 17 edition of the state-owned Guyana Chronicle and other such content carried by the newspaper.
“If his disagrees with these reprehensible views, he must quickly and publicly disassociate the Government and himself from them. He should take disciplinary action against those responsible for the publications; to do otherwise would be an endorsement of those sentiments,” the association said in a statement. Ramotar, who is also the Minister of Information, has responsibility for the state-owned Guyana National Newspapers Limited, the publishers of the Chronicle.
