Guyana seek help to fight crime

Published:Thursday | February 7, 2008 | 1:30 PM

Two opposition parliamentary parties in Guyana have called for the government to seek help from the United States, Britain, Brazil and other Caribbean countries to fight crime.

The Alliance for Change and the Guyana Action Party (GAP) are claiming that the Bharrat Jagdeo led administration has no solutions to the growing crime problem.

The two parties said the government’s policies and programmes have led to the death of many innocent people.

The main opposition People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) has called for an urgent sitting of the National Assembly, to discuss Guyana’s crime situation.

Security concerns have been growing since gunmen murdered 11 people two weeks ago.
