Piglet fraud

Stabroek News - - LETTERS -

Dear Editor, We have been mem­bers of the Guyana Swine Pro­duc­ers Co-op So­ci­ety Ltd for over two years. We joined the co-op with the prom­ise that each mem­ber would get piglets and feed to breed high-grade piglets for the lo­cal and over­seas market with a grant from the Gov­ern­ment of Guyana. Eighty piglets ar­rived in Guyana some­time in June 2016 which were to be shared among poul­try mem­bers of the coop. They were to get two each with the agree­ment that each mem­ber who did not get would be given two piglets each from the mem­bers who re­ceived first.

Up to now we are still wait­ing for our piglets that we paid five thou­sand dol­lars for, and all we are get­ting is prom­ises and more prom­ises. We de­cided to pay a visit to the so­ci­ety’s farm. We dis­cov­ered that each of them took fif­teen piglets for them­selves and left most of us with noth­ing; we are call­ing on the gov­ern­ment to in­ves­ti­gate this fraud. Yours faith­fully, (Name and ad­dress pro­vided)

Editor’s note We are send­ing a copy of this let­ter to Min­is­ter within the Min­istry of So­cial Pro­tec­tion Keith Scott for any com­ment he might wish to make.
