CaribWorldNews, GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Weds. Aug. 6, 2009: The leader of Guyana`s main opposition party has written to CARICOM as well as several regional governments and international organizations to claim the current government is in ` collusion` with a self-confessed drug lord’.
The People`s National Congress Reform, head, Robert H. O. Corbin, dispatched the letters this week, on the heels of allegations in a New York court by a former employee of drug lord, Shaheed `Roger` Khan, that members of the current government were involved with Khan and his phantom death squad.
Corbin said in the letters that the `developments have both national and international security implications as well as grave consequences for the stability of the state in Guyana.`
And he urged the organizations and heads to call on President Bharrat Jagdeo and the government of Guyana to heed the request by Guyanese citizens for an international criminal or any similar type investigation to be conducted by a reputable international body, such as INTERPOL, `into these rather serious and troubling developments.`
Selwyn Vaughn, who said he worked for Khan, admitted under oath in the Brooklyn court that Guyana`s Minister of Health, Leslie Ramsammy, met with Khan to discuss the `Buxton Gang.`
Ramsammy, in Guyana, has vehemently denied that he has ever had any contact with Khan and called the testimony, `nonsense.`
