Gam­ing Author­ity in­ves­ti­ga­tion has a place to start

Stabroek News - - LETTERS -

Dear Editor, I ac­knowl­edge and in­deed am grateful for Mr Roys­dale Forde’s pub­lic recog­ni­tion of the Gam­ing Author­ity’s obli­ga­tions to keep con­fi­den­tial, in­for­ma­tion that has been sub­mit­ted to it.

A care­ful read­ing of my let­ter to Mr Forde and my com­ments on this is­sue pub­lished in the press will con­firm that I did not “im­pinge on the in­tegrity of the Gam­ing Author­ity”, as Mr Forde as­serts. All I did was to re­quest an ex­pla­na­tion from Mr Forde as to how doc­u­ments sub­mit­ted to the or­gan­i­sa­tion of which he is the Chair­man, had reached the hands of unau­tho­rized strangers, to wit, the Guyana National News­pa­pers Lim­ited, the Editor of the Chron­i­cle News­pa­pers and the At­tor­ney Gen­eral. This is a re­quest which I am pro­fes­sion­ally obliged to make on be­half of my clients.

Now that Mr Forde has de­nied that the Author­ity ever made these dis­clo­sures, it is in­cum­bent upon him to launch an in­ves­ti­ga­tion in re­spect of how these doc­u­ments left the cus­tody of the Gam­ing Author­ity, lest he him­self ex­poses the in­tegrity of Gam­ing Author­ity to the ‘im­pinge­ment’ to which he refers. He must ap­pre­ci­ate that in the cir­cum­stances a bare de­nial would not suf­fice.

The con­sum­mate pro­fes­sional that I know he is, I am sure that Mr Forde is aware that a mem­ber the Author­ity is also a mem­ber of the Board of Direc­tors of the Guyana National News­pa­pers Lim­ited. I will be bold to sug­gest that that may be a di­rec­tion in which the re­quested in­ves­ti­ga­tion should fo­cus, at least as a start.

Yours faith­fully, Mo­habir Anil Nand­lall, MP
