The Guyana Police Force is appealing to citizens who engage in processions and marches to comply with the Laws of Guyana.

According to a release from the Police Public Relations Office, a march was applied for and approved by the Police "A" Division for a prescribed route yesterday but elements of the march diverted and proceeded along routes which were not approved.

The release added that the subsequent conduct of these elements was cause for concern for many in the business community and other persons conducting their lawful and legitimate business.

The police cautioned all persons so inclined to desist from this ill-advised form of behaviour which seems to be challenging the authority of the police and warned that in the future such actions would be met with the appropriate response.
