Mr Corbin lacked evidence for claiming similarities between Guyana and Jamaica crime situations

Dear Editor, The Ministry of Home Affairs has noted with deep concern the contents of a recent statement purportedly made by Opposition Leader Robert Corbin and published in one of the daily newspapers headlined ‘Guyana, Jamaica crime situation share similarities.’ In the said statement Mr Corbin cynically sought to draw certain similarities between the ongoing battle by the Jamaican law enforcement agencies to flush out Jamaican drug kingpin Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke to have him extradited to the United States to stand trial.

What sorts of mechanism are in place for accountability in the public service?

Dear Editor, I read with interest an article in the Guyana Chronicle titled, ‘President Jagdeo reiterates need for accountability in service sectors.’ In particular, a sentence from President Bharrat Jagdeo’s statement that reads, “Too many little gods in many public institutions who act like they are doing favours when they have to deliver service to the public” caught my attention.
