Police launches probe into ‘mischievous allegations’ about the National Unity Monument


The Guyana Police Force has launched an investigation into allegations made by Desmond Alli, the architect of the National Unity Monument which is located in the National Art Gallery, Castellani House compound, against a member of the Presidential Guard.

Police Headquarters in a statement on Wednesday noted that Alli, in a letter published in today’s Kaieteur News under the headline ‘President Ali instructs demolition of National Unity Monument’, claimed that one Mr. Liverpool, told him that the National Unity Monument is to be demolished.

“On Monday 9th of May, I was informed by Mr. Liverpool, acting on the instruction of President Irfaan Ali that the National Unity Monument be demolished as it poses a threat to Guyana’s National Security,” Alli wrote in the letter.

According to police headquarters, Ronford Liverpool, of the Presidential Guard, has vehemently denied having any interaction or conversation whatsoever with the purported letter-writer.

Police said that Liverpool reported that he does not even know of a Desmond Alli, and as such the allegations are “mischievous, misleading and out to create public mischief”.

Liverpool, through his supervisor Edgar Thomas, has since lodged a formal complaint this morning with the Guyana Police Force to investigate the ‘mischievous’ allegations made by Alli.

An investigation has since been launched into the matter.
