Where is the US$18M signing bonus deposited?

Dear Editor,

The Bank of Guyana has published the list of 128 Government Account Balances at the end of January 2018, totalling in excess of $36 billion.

The US$18 million ‘Signing Bonus’ received by Guyana and allegedly placed in an account at the Bank is not listed. I conclude subject to correction by the Minister of Finance that the monies if indeed placed there have been removed or withdrawn or spent without the authorization of the Parliament as required by Article 217 of the Constitution of Guyana.

I therefore call upon the Minister of Finance to immediately disclose precisely where the money is, how much has been spent from it and for what purpose, and what is the present balance in the account if at all there is any.

Yours faithfully,

Ramon Gaskin
