Assistant Commissioner asked David Hinds if he had evidence of the perpetrators of the Crum-Ewing murder

Dear Editor,

The Guyana Police Force is responding to a letter published in the Stabroek News of Thursday March 12, written by David Hinds under the caption ‘There should be no tit for tat.’

The gist of the letter seems to give the perception that the killing of Courtney Crum-Ewing on March 10, at Diamond, EBD, was politically motivated by persons aligned to another political party other than the one Crum-Ewing belonged to.

The Guyana Police Force wishes to inform the public that on the basis of this letter, the Assistant Commissioner ‘Law Enforcement’ contacted Mr David Hinds and asked him whether he had evidence of the perpetrators of the murder and he said that he had no such evidence.

The Assistant Commissioner ‘Law Enforcement’ then informed Mr David Hinds that there was therefore no logic on which his statement and call for ‘no tit for tat’ was based, and also told him that his statement had the potential to incite violence and warned him to desist from such behaviour.


Yours faithfully,
Ivelaw Whittaker
Public Relations and Press Officer
