US Embassy released LEAD documents in December 2013

Dear Editor,

In a letter in the May 15, 2014 edition of Stabroek News, Melinda Janki wrote:  “Before any decision is made about the LEAD project, the Guyanese and American governments should make all the project documents publicly available so that the average Guyanese citizen can read about what the project is about.  Then let us have an informed debate, seek the truth and build a national consensus.”  We could not agree more.  That is why the Embassy released the project documents to the media back in December 2013, together with our correspondence on the programme.  The contents of the programme and the correspondence have been widely reported.   Should Ms. Janki or other Stabroek News readers desire additional information, they may write us at PDGeorge@state.gov.

Yours faithfully,

Tabatha Fairclough

Public Affairs Officer

US Embassy
