Dear Editor,

It has been brought to my attention that the Guyana Chronicle published an article captioned ‘Controversial accountant’s sons threaten to hack PPP websites’ dated July 31, 2011, where my brother Ravendra Ram has been wrongfully accused of being an orchestrator in hacking government websites.

I am afraid that Ena Ram’s letter a short while ago may have incited the horrible behaviour of certain government officials who try their best to defame the character of my father Christopher Ram, an ACCA member and prominent attorney, in the most disrespectful way possible.

Ravendra Ram is innocent. I wish to let the public know that Ravendra Ram lives the life of a good, decent, law-abiding citizen. He does not live the luxury life as many PPP officials claim. These claims should be countered to the fullest as the PPP journalists lack facts. Ravendra Ram, growing up with one or two bad experiences, was very outraged when he found out that very sensitive and confidiental information was available in the public domain. I know one of the officials has an intense grudge against my father.  But that does not give him reason to fabricate false allegations against respectable members of society.

The PPP operatives claim that my father is involved in illegal dealings. Where is the evidence? There is no evidence because the operatives, no matter how educated and wealthy they are, stoop down low to endorse anonymous blogs that have malicious and slanderous claims about opposition members.

I challenge the Guyana Chronicle to come forward with facts as the article seems to be the opening for a potential libel suit. And since Christopher Ram is an attorney, I hope that justice is served to the insidious operatives of the PPP/C who fabricate lies and nancy stories against my father and my siblings.

Yours faithfully,
Rajendra Christian Ram
