The Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc. (GuySuCo) has issued a warning to squatters occupying their lands at Vryheid’s Lust, Success and Chateau Margot on the East Coast of Demerara to remove forthwith as the entity is in the process of reviving its operations in the area.

“The Corporation is currently in the process of reviving its operations at East Demerara and the squatting on these lands is hindering the land preparation process,” GuySuCo noted in a statement Wednesday.

The State entity noted that a number of fields in the area houses its Germplasm collection which is vital for the Corporation’s Cane Breeding Programme but these fields have been destroyed by the squatters.

“Some of these fields have been vandalised by the squatting activities resulting in the destruction and or loss of material developed over a decade of scientific research in variety improvement, therefore setting back the development of better yielding varieties by a number of years,” the statement noted.
