Rodney CoI acquires British diplomatic exchanges during 1980
The Walter Rodney Com-mission of Inquiry (CoI) has secured a bundle of correspondence which represents exchanges between the British High Commis-sioner and his superiors in the UK about the political situation in Guyana during 1980, according to lead Counsel Glenn Hanoman.
Hanoman when approached yesterday told Stabroek News that the bundle which consists of approximately 100 pages was purchased online from the British National Archives. He was unable to provide a price tag for the purchase.
He said that the purchase came about as a result of the secretariat’s investigations and after an application was made to the British government. He said that the Secretariat was able to ascertain that there is a system in place where documents can be purchased from the country’s national archives.
