Guyana: Gov’t defends President’s role in GDF changes

Government yesterday defended the role of President David Granger in changes to the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) and outlined a number of actions taken to protect Guyana’s territorial waters and reinforce border security.

The actions were disclosed in a statement issued in response to a letter in yesterday’s Kaieteur News. The Ministry of the Presidency’s statement observed that the letter – reputedly written by an unnamed “concerned junior officer” – suggests that since taking office in May 2015, President David Granger has been acting outside of his remit as Commander-in-Chief.
