exercise to counter the public image. The soldiers were later
released on bail.

taken from Kaieteur News news report:
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

is not a start-today-finish-tomorrow solution. We have to get
the AKs and other big guns,” Felix stated.

Article by Rakesh Rampertab:
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
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.
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.
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
“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
The public is waiting; over to your Mr. Commissioner Felix.
