Arms handed out by GDF in 1979 pose security threat -Rohee
Weapons handed over by the GDF to then ruling PNC in 1979 pose a security threat to the country, according to Minister of Home Affairs Clement Rohee.
In a statement last evening, Rohee was responding to revelations emanating from the Commission of Inquiry into the death of historian Dr Walter Rodney.
A GDF officer has been testifying about the numbers of weapons that were handed out to the Ministry of National Development and others.
In his statement, Rohee voiced “utmost dismay and distress” at the revelations on the amount of firearms that were shared to the Ministry of National Development on August 10, 1979, and which to date cannot be accounted for.
