 Guyanese deportees arrive at the Cheddi Jagan International Airport and escorted to a Guyana Police Force bus that transported them to the Guyana Police Force’s headquarters of the Criminal Investigations Department, Eve Leary.

The MD-82 jet touched down at the Cheddi Jagan Internationa Airport at exactly 2:39 PM, as a small number of relatives and friends mingled in the viewing gallery.  

Prior to being granted permission to leave the plane, an inventory of their carry-on luggage— mostly white bags— was taken in the presence of Guyanese police and US embassy officials.

The deportees then boarded a 30-seater bus owned by the Guyana Police Force. A group of heavily ar‎med police from the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) accompanied the bus as sirens blared throughout the journey to the city. As the bus left the airport, a number of the deportees waived at their relatives who were in the parking lot.

Police Commissioner Seelall Persaud has told Caribbean News Desk that this batch is believed to be the single largest ever in more than six years.

Persaud has said that a number of the deportees could be monitored based on assessments that are to be conducted by the Criminal Investigations Department.

The Prevention of Crimes Act legally permits the police to monitor persons including deportees.

    This can’t be good news for the people of Guyana. Will the criminals be released into the population?

      Some of these guys can be monsters. They may have started as amateur crooks but they master criminal skills in prison. Some, wh were returned to Jamaica, stayed around Kinston. They have no roots in the country because they left while young. So guess how they made a living. Heaven help the poor folks in Guyana: crookery at the top and more criminals at the bottom.

    But, but, but the US charge d’affaires in Guyana just recently said that verynot few Guyanese are being deported from America. LOL! Are we for sure these deportees are criminals, or are they being brought it to do the dirty now that elections are around the corner. The Guyana govt might want to investigate the past movements and background thoroughly before releasing them into the arms of the PNC/APNU. Old methods/habits die hard and should not be overlooked.

    Gigi it seems that you have forgotten some of the exhibited attributes of the current PPP government.It may be in your best interest to search and find out what the PPP have done to saddle the Guyanese with the tremendous debt that eventually must be paid back even when the fruits of deception are sitting in the coffers of the current PPP government operatives. “Old methods die hard and should not be overlooked” especially when those methods have enriched the PPP and their operatives, especially past Presidents. A very large percentage of the returnees are not of PNC/APNU supporters.

      Dolphin you polish the corruption of this crooked government with such refined words I almost thought you were complimenting them.
      I have not read any of the opposition politicians addressing this problem of how to get Guyana out of the mess this Govt has place it. The debt is one thing but the PPP has put in place a corrupt structure that would be difficult to remove by conventional means. The govt. could not be litterly “stealing” public funds to that extend without collaboration by a number of other officials in different departments. Then we read of the wide spread nature of corruption in other sectors like the police and judiciary.
      One radical measure might be for a new govt to appoint a special body, with power to prosecute, punish and recover some of the stolen public funds. Dont see anyone doing this so the crooks might go unpunished.

    Gigi. A very good comment. Thank you.

      Cliff is another supporter of wild conspiracy themes with a racial bias. The US is going to the trouble of deporting Guyanese just to ensure that the opposition has more “firepower”. And the presumption is that the majority of the deportees must be black criminals. No possibility of them being largely made up of people who have simply overstayed their welcome, just like those coming from trinidad and elsewhere. If the USA really wwants to get rid of the PPP, it could do so in a heartbeat. As I’ve pointed out before, when it comes to Gigi attacking black people, lots of the regulars simply turn their eyes. Black people in particular need to speak up because lots of misleading statements are made on this forum on a regular basis.
