Rohee should step down ahead of Commission of Inquiry- Opposition

September 6m 2012

The opposition parliamentary coalition A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) and the Alliance For Change (AFC) on Thursday insisted that Home Affairs Minister, Clement Rohee should step down ahead of the Commission of Inquiry in the July 18 killing of three protesters.

Shemroy Bouyea, Ron Somerset and Allan Lewis died subsequent to a clash with the police who had employed the use of tear gas and pellets to clear the Mackenzie-WismarBridge which had been occupied by protesters demonstrating against a move to increase electricity rates.

Rohee told Demerara Waves Online News (www.demwaves.com) that “I do not wish to discuss that matter.” He stuck to that response when asked whether he believed that was a matter for President Donald Ramotar and the wider cabinet.

Back in 2004, then Home Affairs Minister, Ronald Gajraj proceeded on leave at his own request to allow for an impartial investigation into an allegation of his knowledge of the operations of an alleged death squad.  [more]
