“It was just a very strange oc­cur­rence that I or any­one I have spo­ken to have ever heard of or can make sense of up to now, where you just got a let­ter that you are ter­mi­nated be­cause of convenience,” Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of RK’s Se­cu­rity, Roshan Khan, told Stabroek News when con­tacted. “Just imag­ine, mere hours be­fore we are sched­uled to start this let­ter comes, how that can be jus­ti­fied?” he added.

Chair­man of the Pub­lic Pro­cure­ment Com­mis­sion (PPC), Carol Corbin told Stabroek News that since the body has com­pleted its lat­est re­port - the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the $632M drug pro­cure­ment – RK’s com­plaint would be one of the next to be looked at. visit comes at a time when he is pre­par­ing to spear­head the GUY24 project, which is aimed at sup­port­ing the preven­tion, in­ves­ti­ga­tion and pros­e­cu­tion of cor­rup­tion. At the meet­ing, the re­lease said, Robin­son in­formed Wil­liams that he has drafted an anti-cor­rup­tion work plan which sets out his planned ac­tiv­i­ties to strengthen Guyana’s anti-cor­rup­tion regime. This plan is to be re­viewed by the gov­ern­ment, the re­lease said, while adding that to ex­e­cute the work plan Robin­son will be col­lab­o­rat­ing with all anti-cor­rup­tion agen­cies and stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing the Spe­cial Or­gan­ised Crime Unit (SOCU), the State As­sets Re­cov­ery Agency (SARA) and the Fi­nan­cial In­tel­li­gence Unit (FIU). The re­lease did not in­di­cate when the plan will be com­pleted and when the project will start.
