Commissioner Felix Knows Who has AK-47s
by Rakesh Rampertab

[Editor's Note: This article, slightly edited, was published in the Kaieteur News (July 13, 2006) and Chronicle (July 12, 2006).]

Left, one of the AK-47 "discovered" in the bush between Melanie and Enterprise (and not "in" Enterprise as claimed by the Joint Services led by Chief of Staff, Collins and Commissioner Felix, so as to blame the Indian-dominated village). Right: Oliver Hinckson and James Gibson, ex-soldiers. On June 6, 2006, a raid is carried out against the homes of former GDF soldier, Oliver Hinckson at Aubrey Barker Road, South Ruimveldt. He and another ex-soldier, James Gibson, were arrested. This was a staged exercise to counter the public image. The soldiers were later released on bail.

It is this website's strong belief that these two individuals have valid information as to the guns and the larger Buxton Blueprint, but they are being protected by the army and the police heads who are acting with the tacit approval of a certain political party.

The heads of the security forces that have orchestrated an extrordinary manhunt against Roger Khan and others on false pretexts; left, Brigadier General Edwards Collins, the man who claimed to have crushed a drug "empire" but without siezing at least 1 kilo of cocaine; and right, Police Commissioner Winston Felix, who has lied to the public on numerous occasions to divert attention away from those who stole the army guns to use to destabalize Guyana. He is scheduled to leave on pre-retirement vacation on July 24.



    Example of Felix Fooling the Guyanese Public in his private war against Khan and others...and aid to those staging rebellion against the State of Guyana; excerpts taken from Kaieteur News news report:

Roger Khan is in a US jail and the Guyana Police Force is nowhere near getting information from him on the missing AK-47 assault rifles that were stolen from army headquarters earlier this year.

Police Commissioner Winston Felix said that the inability of the local security forces to speak with the detained Guyanese businessman is a setback....

“The Surinamese had him under tight security, nobody was able to speak to him,” Commissioner Felix told members of the media yesterday.

While initially the Joint Services targeted business places linked to Khan and his associates, Felix said that this was only based on information obtained by the security forces.

“I would not dream up a target; preliminary information led us there,” he stressed.

When questioned about the apparent reduction in criminal activities after Khan was arrested, the Police Commissioner said that there will always be crime with or without Roger Khan.

He said that the force will continue to fight crime with vigour and this will continue with the joint raids which he said are focusing mainly on removing the threat posed by the proliferation of firearms in the society.

He however admitted that while the operations have netted several firearms, there has been little success in finding the ‘big guns', the AK-47's.

“We would like to discover where these firearms are. Solving crime is not a start-today-finish-tomorrow solution. We have to get the AKs and other big guns,” Felix stated.

Article by Rakesh Rampertab:

It is only for propaganda purposes that Police Commissioner Winston Felix (see KN 070906) has asserted that Roger Khan’s detention in the US is a setback in the search for the army’s missing guns.

It is unfortunate that the commissioner continues to drag himself into the mud and, quite unpleasantly, is also taking the entire Guyana Police Force with him.

Even a donkey cannot be such a jackass as to believe what is being declared as official police statement.

The Commissioner of police knows who has the guns, who were responsible for taking them, and in light of his partisian tendencies, has refused to apprehend these individuals who have plotted rebellion against the State. These individuals include prominent members of the civil society, key members of a leading opposition political party, and top-brass members of the very Joint Services conducting raids and searches under various guises.

The one aim is to return the PNC which has become most extremist over the past years, to power one way or another.

But there must be no illusions about our use of the English language; the commissioner is saying that Roger Khan stole the guns.

This is another statement made to create a diversion. Diversions are needed to shape public opinion against Roger Khan, and to keep Guyanese ignorant so they may ignore the activities of those planning the destabilization of the Republic.

We, the public, must be vigilant against diversions. We must learn to recognize them in all their various forms, whether it is a false statement, a false arrest, a false press release, or the appearance of an AK-47 in the bush.

The commissioner is asking us to forget about the guns. He is saying that if there is no Roger Khan, then no guns would be found. By saying this, the commissioner hopes to eradicate the informant, the crime, the evidence, and the guilty parties in one sweep.

But the police commissioner has overlooked some critical details. I offer three: First, not all Guyanese have intellectual shortcomings as some do.

Secondly, the Guyana police was offered an opportunity to have Khan returned to Guyana, but they refused. This is evidence that the commissioner is not interest in Khan. It also highlights the insincerity behind this so-called search for the guns.

Thirdly, Khan already supplied information to the Joint Services; they refused to act upon it. For the record, let us turn to the statement issued by Khan on or about May 21, as covered by Kaieteur News:

“He said he supplied information to the GDF about members of a political party whom he claimed were involved in the theft of the weapons and the consequential deliberate attempts by the GDF to divert the investigation.

“Khan admitted that he was in daily contact with Major Denzel Carmichael, Major Sherwin Anderson and Lt. Col. Andrew Pompey of the GDF, and claimed that he was debriefed daily on the status of the ongoing investigation.”

I wish to state without reservation that there have never been publicized raids or interrogations of these “members of a political party.”

I agree with the commissioner that he/the police does not “dream up a target” for raids. What the commissioner failed to say is that raids are executed after the selective targeting of Guyanese citizens capable of resisting a larger nefarious plot to overrun the Republic.

That these “members of a political party” have not been questioned is evidence of this “selective targeting.”

I call on the commissioner to explain to the Guyanese people why he is yet to arrest and interrogate these political figures singled out by Roger Khan?

I call on newspaper columnists, TV journalists, letter writers, and on-line web editors to publicly call for these individuals to be investigated immediately.

I call on the commissioner to explain the links between the arrest of two former army figures (nabbed in Ruimveldt) and the guns? Or whether that was a “staged” exercise in which the press was allowed rare close coverage?

He should explain to the public whether the kidnapping of Belfield’s child was really a hoax, or whether a ransom in US dollars was paid?

The public is waiting; over to your Mr. Commissioner Felix.
