(Demerara Waves) The Guyana Police Force is currently investigating an assassination plot against President David Granger –a security challenge that government is taking seriously.
This was confirmed by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who today (April 20, 2017) during a post Cabinet briefing was asked if the administration was aware of the alleged plot and what actions are being taken.
According to Minister Harmon, the administration was supplied with the information by the Guyana Police Force and that the investigation is currently ongoing and as such “I don’t think we are at liberty to disclose.”
He did seek to point out that the investigators have sought legal advice on proceeding with the matter.
Demerara Waves understands that information of the plot surfaced sometime last month with a $7M bounty to shoot at President Granger during one of his outreaches reportedly already being paid.
