Granger condemns ‘orchestrated political attack’ against Chris Jones
See below full statement issued by Leader of the PNCR David Granger:
Violation of the rights and freedom of Christopher Jones
I take this opportunity to strongly condemn the recent unwarranted and unlawful deprivation of the rights and freedom of Mr. Christopher Jones.
As leader of the PNCR and representative of the list from which Christopher Jones was recently extracted to be a Member of Parliament, I call for an immediate end to this season of politically inspired harassment by the PPP.
The actions of ranks of the Guyana Police Force, who blatantly disregarded an order of the court and unlawfully entered the premises of Mr. Christopher Jones; arrested him and illegally seized personal property, must be stoutly condemned and immediately investigated.
The PNCR will not allow this type of harassment of former public servants or any citizen by agents of the state to stand. The PNCR calls on all Guyanese to join us to strongly condemn this abuse of state power and the persecution of an innocent man.
The PNCR calls for an immediate cessation of harassment and politically inspired ‘witch-hunting’ of current and former public servants.
The PNCR stands firmly with Mr. Christopher Jones and will do everything to ensure that his rights and freedom are no longer violated.
The PNCR demands an immediate investigation into what is clearly a well-coordinated and orchestrated political attack.
