1. In an effort to create political mischief, Stabroek News published a report and purports to have done an investigation, of hundreds of killings under the PPP government. The newspaper falsely claimed only 420 persons were killed during this period which they confined to between February 2002 and September 2006.

2. Not only is this figure an insulting undercount and therefore grossly inaccurate, but Stabroek news deliberately separated person who they alleged was killed by bandits, in alleged Police confrontations, and purportedly by unknown circumstances.


3. Stabroek news seeks to deceive readers by deliberately limiting the period of these PPP murders to 2002 to 2006. However, these killings began around 1997 and ended in 2011. The newspaper engages in this deceptive reporting to support a false Bharrat Jagdeo and PPP narrative that the killings began after a jailbreak in 2002.

4. Most of the “bandits” referred to were from the PPP cultivated security forces; particularly the Police Force. They are therefore indistinguishable. This may have been influenced by the fact that most of the Police Commissioners appointed by Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPP were ostensibly themselves deeply ensconced in corruption – McDonald, Green, Persaud.


5. The death squads were formed by the PPP and PPP interests. They operated with impunity and in plain, public view under the auspices of Bharrat Jagdeo and the PPP government. Documents proved that the murder gangs reported to Jagdeo’s then Minister of National Security, Ronald Gajraj. This established that these were PPP gangs and that the PPP was complicit in the hundreds of murders and other crimes by them- a fact confirmed by a United Nations investigation.

6. Stabroek News falsely claimed that “The daring escape of five prisoners from the Camp Street Prison on February 23rd 2002 was the catalyst for one of the bloodiest periods in the country’s history resulting in hundreds of lives being lost in robberies, police officers being slaughtered..” The facts will establish that heinous crimes described herein were largely orchestrated by the Roger Khan death squad and drug gang which operated long before their evils became public knowledge.


7. Stabroek sought to restrict the time frame of the murders to diminish, with intent to misled readers about, the number of people who were killed. Their effort is to exculpate the political party they support, endorsed and actively campaign for – the PPP.

8. Guyanese must dismiss Stabroek news’ dangerous, sham narrative and bogus figures. The Guyana Police Force must release the figures of all PPP and their death squad murders, political assassinations and extrajudicial killings, from 1997 to 2011. Then, and only then, will the Guyanese people be fully enlightened about the extent of the genocide PPP death squads and other PPP elements perpetrated on our nation?


9. We Guyanese have come to realize that Stabroek news is dubious and apocryphal. It is Guyana’s “Fox News” – a cesspool of fake news, PPP propaganda and racist trash! No right-thinking should believe a single word from this entity.
