Guyana and the drug trade

Guyana and the drug trade

MAY 5, 2014 | BY  | EDITORIAL

The drug trade is pervasive.  It has reached every section of the society with the result that one can now see splendour among poverty.  In the city there are buildings with North American architecture going up among others slowly collapsing because their owners simply do not have money to rehabilitate them.

A Guyana connection in the Cocaine from Trinidad and Tobago found in Virginia?

(Capitol News – January 27,2014)  – The discovery in the US of over 12 million US dollars’ worth of cocaine in cans out of Trinidad and Tobago is pointing to a connection in Guyana.

The Guyana connection that is being investigated is that the actual cocaine may have come through this country via a company only on paper. About three years ago one of the Trinidadians now under a cloud in the Twin Island Republic attempted to take over a Guyanese company.   Continue reading
