Guyana unfairly targeted in US trafficking persons reports, says president

“According to the report, the United States has far worse versions of the same challenges that we face”. This was expected due to the fact that the US was much bigger, he noted. He said that US was cited for having some of its officials being found complicit in their involvement in human trafficking and child prostitution.  “Can you imagine if this were to happen in Guyana, what would be said about us? Yet the US is ranked at Tier 1 and Guyana at Tier 2,” Ramotar pointed out.
