What about the victims?

Dear Editor,

Is it the Guyana Human Rights Association or The Guyana Criminal Rights Association?

I would like to support Mr. Bertwald Bradshaw (25.2.2002) in highlighting the recently released GHRA report.

It is my conclusion that GHRA has failed to be impartial, it would appear that year after year all they focus on is "Police Brutality" but what about the innocent Guyanese who were brutally murdered and robbed and whose lives have been disrupted by hardened criminals.

Come on GHRA if you want to report on 'brutality and wrongdoing,' report from all angles, not only the criminals' perspectives.

Let me take this opportunity to wish Ms. Roxanne Winfield 'speedy recovery.'

Yours faithfully,

S. Sadik

Editor's note

Human Rights organisations here and abroad traditionally concern themselves with issues like the rights of accused persons and fair trial, prison conditions and so on. That does not mean that they sympathise with criminals or condone crime. Obviously that is not the case. But that is not their job.
