Dear Editor, Article 146 (1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Guyana provides for the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens and is the supreme law of the land and directs: “Except with his consent, no person shall be hindered in the enjoyment of his freedom of expression, that is to say, freedom to hold opinions without interference, freedom to receive ideas and information without interference, freedom to communicate ideas and information without interference and freedom from interference with his correspondence.” By insisting on maintaining the ‘one TV station‘ practice in Linden, this government is continuing a form of oppression in relation to the people’s right to receive ideas and information, especially when no other example exists anywhere else in Guyana.

Dear Editor, Regrettably, again I find myself impelled to respond to another publication of the Stabroek News. On this occasion, it is the editorial of the edition published on January 9, which dealt primarily with the allegations of sexual misconduct which have been made against Police Commissioner Henry Greene, and the response of the government to these allegations.
