Guyana opposition calls for Attorney General to resign
Guyana’s main opposition grouping, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), has called for the resignation of Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Anil Nandlall over allegations that he had knowledge of a plan to harm workers at a newspaper.
Nandlall has already filed a $30 million lawsuit against the Kaieteur News newspaper after the government condemned the paper for what it termed a despicable act in distorting and manipulating a private conversation of a government minister.
Nandlall filed the suit in the High Court after the newspaper published the article with the headline “Attorney General Reveals plan to hit Glenn Lall, Kaieteur News”.
Nandlall has named the proprietor of the Kaieteur News, Mohan ‘Glenn’ Lall and editor, Adam Harris as the defendants.
In a statement, the main opposition said Nandlall, as head of the Guyana Bar Association and the Government’s legal adviser holds a pivotal position in the maintenance of law and order in the country.
According to the party, his action has breached that trust reposed in his Office and he must step aside.
