Condemned before trial
January 26, 2004
The Gajraj saga continues. Mr. Corbin wants an enquiry, which the government supports. The dispute is as a result of Mr. Corbin's insistence that the enquiry be held, notwithstanding no report being made to the official authorities. The President is requesting that Corbin encourage person or persons in receipt of information to present same to the Guyana Police Force.
Now for an enquiry to be held there must be a basis for it. Must not there be statements in support of what needs to be investigated. When a commission of enquiry is set up it would be told to investigate certain things. Must the president pull from the air matters for the commission to investigate without any basis for the subject matters?
I think Mr. Corbin should mobilize his people to submit statements so that the commission can be established. Perhaps Mr. Corbin feels this may not be necessary because he has already found Gajraj guilty. The protest meeting, which he headed and addressed, was adorned with great impressive banners indicting Gajraj.
And as to be expected Channel 6 shows these pickets every night.
When Mr Corbin decides to submit statements and questions for the Commission of Enquiry to investigate, he will, of course, also request that the commission investigate the attacks on the Indo-Guyanese passing through Buxton; the phantom-like removal of the tape which may have recorded the features of the person who may have been involved in the killing of Hamilton - that may give a lead to the Buxton phantom - the attack on the workers laying pipes along the embankment road at Annandale, with the army personnel nearby and the reason they offered why they did not intervene.
