Police Commissioner Henry Greene accused of rape

Top Cop invokes God as his judge following rape allegation

Demerara Waves – December 14, 2011

A 34-year-old woman has accused Commissioner of Police Henry Greene of raping her after she went to him for help on a matter involving another police officer and his wife.

The incident allegedly happened on November 22 last but was only reported to the police on Tuesday because the woman said she had been living in fear as a result of threats from her alleged rapist. She has retained Nigel Hughes as her attorney.
When Demerara Waves Online News (www.demwaves.com) contacted Greene on Tuesday he said he needed to get the details of the woman’s allegations before he made a statement if any.

By Ewalt (Waltie) Ainsworth                    12-10- 2011

While the Red Thread women in Guyana are marching, protesting, demanding shared governance and a halt to the shooting of their men and children, the other white meat, Indo Guyanese, are disentangling from their other ethnic counterparts in North America.  This is direct fallout from the alleged falsified accounting and rigging of the elections.  The lines that divide are visible, pronounced, vexing and immediate.
