Transit through Linden re-established – Joint Services

Posted By Stabroek editor On August 19, 2012

The Joint Services Co-ordinating Council today said that transiting through the town of Linden has been re-established.

The announcement comes after weeks of unrest had virtually cut Linden off from communities such as Mahdia and Lethem. Both of these communities utilize roads through Linden for access to the coast and for supplies. Alternative routes – taking much more time – had to be found after the eruption of unrest in Linden on July 18 over the killing of three protesters by police.

Residents of Mahdia, Lethem and other communities had complained about high fuel and food process in the wake of the Linden protests.            

The statement follows:

“The Joint Services Coordinating Council wishes to advise all citizens that access to and through the Linden community into the interior locations by road, has now been re-established.

“However, please note that, in the very short term Joint Services personnel will continue to man the main thoroughfare through the Linden township. Joint Services personnel will continue to engage their tasks in the most professional manner in keeping with the Laws of Guyana.”
