One of the men has since turned himself in. Former Associate of convicted drug kingpin Roger Khan, Ricardo Rodrigues, turned himself into police this morning and was refused station bail.

A bulletin remains out for Lethem Businessman Clive Llloyd King. whose last known address is Tabatinga in the Lethem area. His wife remains in custody and one of his employees has since been charged in connection with the same case. Several high powered weapons with their matching ammunition were found when the police carried out a search at a house in the Lethem area, said to be owned by King.

    When these people are caught, they should be put before the courts and given very heavy finesand/imprisonment if they are found guilty. It is most disgudting that so many guns are circulating in Guyana in the wrong hands–Criminals.

    If the Coastal Guyanese people will not populate the hinterland then the large land mass will remain a heaven for Weed growers and Gun running trade. The evidence is before your eyes and therefore pressure must be brought on those responsible for the voluntary relocation of the Coastal population to places as Lethem. The land is fertile and the Criminals are in charge. Money laundering is the business and the Criminals are in Charge. When will we learn that the 83,000 sq miles is the prized property of every legal Guyanese and we must develop that land as our forefathers did.

    In many countries the system of National Service holds an avenue of great anxiety and pioneering spirit for the young and youthful population of that country. In Guyana this NS was a sham and mockery that was based on the system of Party Politics and one man’s good or bad dream. It created distress and mistrust and there is a history to be written on this kind of spiteful National Service. What about a new start with a Voluntary National Service then making it Compulsory for the age group 17-35years. Each citizen contributing one year to the Service and System. This is a great Idea and should be promoted at all costs.
    The hinterlands is not the only place for our National Service.

    The Lethem area is one of the more developed jungle terrain. It was a beef producing area in the sixties and fresh beef was flown from Lethem to Georgetown on a daily basis. You may remember the Hart’s family that owned and operated these cattle ranches until 1965 when a sudden revolt against the Burnham’s regime occured. The Hart’s drove away many of their cattle into Venezuelan terrority to escape the Military action that Burnham took and it was believed that the Hart’s were assisted in the revolt in Dec-Jan1965 by Venezuealan Outlaws. The claim to the Western Guyana was hot on the Venezuelan agenda in those days and the then Ag, Sir Ramphal was forced to lodge a complaint against Venezuela at the UN. The Venezuelan government had their Suveyors change the existing territorial maps to include the Guyana’s disputed terrority showing it as a part of official Venezuela! They were claiming 53,000 square miles or the entire Essequibo region as theirs, a claim that was supported by the USA.
