CID wants Lawrence by 4:15pm; Coalition objects
See below statement issued by the APNU+AFC:
Today there has been an unmistakable further intensification of the psychological terrorism on the leadership of the APNU+AFC Coalition by the PPP regime and their complicit agents in the Guyana Police Force.
The People’s National Congress Chairman Ms. Volda Lawrence has been contacted by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Guyana Police Force and told to present herself at 16:15hrs today, Saturday, at the CID Headquarters, Eve Leary.
Ms. Lawrence was previously charged by the Guyana Police Force and put before the court. She has dutifully attended court as required and complied with all requirements. She has been placed on bail. The charges against her are baseless, spurious and trumped up.
This sudden and unnecessary demand for Ms. Lawrence to present herself at the CID Headquarters, late on a Saturday afternoon, must be seen for what it is – psychological terrorism against the APNU+AFC leadership, activists and supporters.
It is evident that there is a plan to detain Ms. Lawrence as others have been detained previously.
This latest devious and abominable action by the PPP regime further crystallises that they are horrified and frightened by the APNU+AFC Coalition’s elections petitions which they know they will lose and will result in their removal from government which they temporarily occupy. They are attempting every desperate tactic to thwart the hearing of the election petition.
The APNU+AFC Coalition demands that the PPP immediately desist from these actions and should it fail to adhere to our demands it will suffer the consequences of retaliatory measures which the APNU+AFC Coalition will be left with no alternative but to pursue.
