Chronicle GM sent on leave as company probes spending
The General Manager of the Guyana National Newspapers Limited, publishers of the Guyana Chronicle, has been sent on administrative leave pending the outcome of investigations into allegations of mismanagement of funds and excessive spending.
Duncan made the announcement on his Facebook page.
This follows dramatic events over the weekend in which a staff member leaked Duncan’s spending in the three months since he joined the company. The details of the spending were published by Demerara Waves.
