Former Police Commissioner Floyd McDonald today said that he never received any diamonds pertaining to a mater involving Ronald Khan.
In yesterday’s Stabroek News, the Attorney General’s Chambers published a notice seeking to have McDonald and other former police officers contact it in relation to the case of Ronald Khan v the Attorney General. The notice did not say what the case related to.
Today’s edition of the state-owned Guyana Chronicle said that the case pertained to diamonds which had been in the custody of the police force and referred to McDonald. In a letter dispatched to the Guyana Chronicle, McDonald wrote:
“I joined the Guyana Police Force on 19th July 1967, I retired February 2004. During the period stated I NEVER RECEIVED, SAW, EXAMINED, SENT TO EXAMINE ANY DIAMONDS in relation to Ronald Khan. I never gave Inspector Maison instructions or any diamonds. Inspector Maison therefore NEVER returned any DIAMONDS to me. It is my view therefore that the article’s corrosive nature is aimed at my character. I am therefore calling on the author at this incipient stage to correct his poisonous article with like coverage”.
The Attorney General’s advertisement in yesterday’s edition of this newspaper listed McDonald; former Deputy Crime Chief, Harley Davidson; Eon Sandy, last known to be stationed at the Supreme Court, Police Outpost; Alwyn Wilson, last known to be stationed at `E’ and `F’ Division, Headquarters, Eve Leary; Terrence Semple, last known to be stationed at Mahdia Police Station, Bartica, Essequibo Coast; Courtney Ramsey, last known to be stationed at Criminal Investigation Department, Police Headquarters, Eve Leary; Desmond Leitch, last known to be stationed at the Criminal Investigation Department, Police Headquarters, Eve Leary, Constable Fraser, Reg # 10881 and ex-detective sergeant Carl Wilson, as those being sought.
According to the urgent public notice, those listed are being asked to make contact with the Chambers at Lot 95 Carmichael Street, South Cummingsburg to “give a detailed account in the matter Ronald Khan v the Attorney General for judicial purposes”.
The advertisement is in the name of the Office of the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Legal Affairs and Attorney General’s Chambers.
