    Who do you think are the biggest scammers and drug dealers in Guyana, its all coming out. If Forbes Burnham was alive Guyana would never have so much crime. The Guyanese government is allowing drugs into the country from Columbia, Brazil, venezuela etc creating a nation of drug addicts and criminals.

      FYI this did not happen in Guyana. And for everyone else’s information this is old news. Wth planet are you living on that you weren’t aware when it happened. Smh. Then everyone wants to jump on the band wagon with their two cents. What’s done is done!

      Burnham was a fruit and a failure as a president who makes a case like this looks like petty theft. He raped and ruined the country, he was lower than shit! He made Jim Jones look like a saint. Guyana greatest failure=Batty man Burnham!!!

        is that true about what you are claiming? it seems like you were on Forbes Burnham back that you know that is was a battyman. You have to be a PPP supporter,,please think with with you head and not your emotions. The PPP goverment is more corrupt that any other, they ‘re drug dealer, theives and many other things

        If a country is one-sided on one race, it would never be a success. I am not sure how many saw President Obama’s speech about Irag (who need help). He said until the Minister of the country accepts all tribes and work with them and not just one group, he will not send his army to defend the country. Crimes does not point to race, every race commit crimes, big or small. The minister of a country does not cause a person to commit a crime. Everyone has a free will.

    • How typical of someone to use this as an opperturnity to make a racist comment.


    • Posted by QueensDEadliest on June 15, 2014 at 11:38 pm

      Burnam was a loser. He was rascist under many levels. And the government would’ve made drug dealing a major business. Go play in traffic..


    • Looks like you were a fan of Burnham. How many crimes did he commit himself?

    I was ashamed to read this article ! First off this is not the “biggest” not because it’s a Guyanese you needed to exaggerate the claims. Second, you need to find a new source because the one you keept sighting sounds like a word of mouth gossip. Third, it’s miss used information that gives people like us “Guyanese” a bad name. Article like this trash guyanese people. Nationality had nothing to do with the crimes committed, the laws that have been broken. Reading this reminds me of the hardship I face telling other people where I come from, the location of my country. When they reference my country as at Jim johns country.

    I understand it was a Guyanese; but, miss interpreting and giving miss leading speculating information is not only discrimination but putting an entire nationality at trial. Opening up us all to face more discriminations, and predigest.

    Hope you choose wisely next time before bashing.

    The headline is racist. 100 Guyanese busted. 110 busted most of them Guyanese. most could be 10 and the others from India. The article is there to sell newspaper.

    Angie shut your mouth. Is that why the entire football team Burnham sent to play a match in the states ran away and became a national embarrassment?

    Why emphasize the fact that they are Guyanese; the few that are? Basic news. Financial crimes happens every day, especially to the white collared individuals & businesses. This is news, because of their ethnicity & where they live


  11. They are a disgrace to our country.

    Burnham? Really!!! Hahahaha He was the number one scam artist!!! Burham is the reason Guyana is where it is today. Burham stole all guyana’s wealth and borrow millions of dollars from abroad which he also stole because of your HERO scum bag Burham Guyana will never recover!!! Burham is a scum bag and I hope he’s in HELL because that’s where he belongs!!! Thanks for the laugh thou, that was a good one!!

    These east Indian men think that they can go to the US and do the same thing many of them are guilty of doing in Guyana that is bleeding the country dry.

    Guyana is a multicultural country. The accused are clearly of Indian Decent


  15. Posted by droutie on June 16, 2014 at 7:43 am

    No one gets away with crimes, sooner or later it’s all get caught up with you. The Police are trained and smarter than Criminals.

    i am praying each day, that we will all realise that indian, black, portuguese whatever u be once u r borned in Guyana u r a Guyanese and whatever happens we all has to face the reality as a Guyanese. So lets all try to make this country a beatiful and productive one so our future generations can be proud of their ancestors. I am one proud Guyanese.

    Amazes me how an article can make us bash each other…nothing but hostility Guyanese have towards each other.


  18. Posted by Audrey on June 17, 2014 at 12:19 am

    lol, old news people, nothing else to do the debate is over


  19. Why people are bad like this!!!!


  20. Posted by Angie on June 19, 2014 at 3:40 pm

    I don’t care who it is everybody got to live they are not the only bad ones it was unfortunate they got caught the others haven’t


  21. Posted by tony on June 30, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    It shouldn’t matter the decent of the people. I’m spanish. And I’m sure out of the “hundred plus” arrested some were Hispanic as well. Race or background shouldn’t discribe a crime that was done. It was done by many people and race had nothing to do with it. Crime is color blind. It just gets done by anyone. The fact is they did it and got caught. And to those who were firm on believing this race decent crap… seem super prejudice. Calling it how I see it.


  22. Burnham is an racist/murderer/thief/terrorist he blew up Walter Rodney and got that terrorist rabbi Washington and it’s crew to rape and kill Indian people in Guyana he ain’t no president go google him and u gonna see it say Guyana dictator.


  23. Posted by bullseye on February 19, 2016 at 6:22 pm

    They must face the full force of the law no if’s and but’s


  24. Posted by corbet on February 19, 2016 at 6:55 pm

    the only thing Burnham did not do right ,he failed to send all you Koolie back to India


  25. Posted by Devin on February 19, 2016 at 8:14 pm

    You idiots this is like 4 years ago!! And NOO it wasnt in guyana. Happened in NYC


  26. Just wanted to say that Burnham ruined Guyana ,made the Guyana Dollar devalued from 2 Guyana Dollar to 120 to 1 US Dollar ,He made Guyanese eat rice flour ,banning basic items that people use for their survival.He was nothing but a Dictator and Tyrant who died like a Dog and I do hope he is Burning in He’ll.That man ruined Guyana and caused such a Division between Indians and Blacks,Africans.I Love Guyana and will always .Now even with the Bharat Jagdeo Government ,they also are a corrupted bunch ,they have stolen so much money and make mansion and bought land at rock bottom prices.I think the only man who put the Country ahead of financial gains was His Excellency Cheddi Kagan.I do not think we will ever get another leader like him


  27. Posted by stan on February 22, 2016 at 10:37 am

    All Guyanese are racist as far as I am concern so please stop and address the real issue at hand. Both parties are driven by race so no matter what is said at the end of the day it is a fact. When we are mature enough then we will be able to see it as a unified people fighting for a common gold until then it is what it is.
