Another alleged Felix recording surfaces
Stabroek News

Another alleged recording of Police Commissioner Winston Felix has been made public.

An official close to the National Television Network (NTN) confirmed that the station had broadcast another alleged recording featuring a voice which was purported to be that of Police Commissioner Felix on Friday. The same day Channel 9's Prime News reported that the government was in possession of and studying more taped conversations featuring Felix. Information Liaison to the President Robert Persaud told Stabroek News that he was not aware of this development and he referred queries to Home Affairs Minister Gail Teixeira. This newspaper was, however, unable to reach her.

Two weeks ago a recording allegedly featuring discussions between Felix and attorney Basil Williams on public security matters was circulated to civil society groups, including members of the business community, and to the media. It was broadcast by NTN, unedited. Felix subsequently denied that it was his voice on the recording.

The discussions on the recording focused on a number of hot-button crime matters, including the recent bloodbath at Agricola that left eight people dead as well as the recent theft of 33 AK-47s from the Guyana Defence Force Base Camp at Ayanganna. Since the initial broadcast there has been wide public debate, and opinion has been split between those concerned about who made the recording and those who placed emphasis on its content and implications.

An examination of the recording suggests that it is a composite of at least two conversations, and that these were very recent, given the issues discussed.
