Several groups and organizations have condemned the assassination of Minister of Agriculture (ag) Satyadeow Sawh and others and called for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.

In press releases issued yesterday, the Guyana Islamic Trust (GIT), the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU), the Justice for All Party (JFAP), the Indian Arrival Committee (IAC), the farming community of Region Two and fishermen and workers from various sections of the Agricultural Ministry and the Alliance for Change (AFC) also expressed condolences to the families of those slain.

The GIT called for Guyanese to allow the better sense of civility and humanity to prevail throughout the nation. "It is sad to witness the wanton destruction of life that threatens to become the norm in our courteous and peace-loving nation," GIT said.

The body also implored all Guyanese to pray for the protection of innocence and the safeguarding of life and property.

The GPSU called the attack vicious and added that it was most unfortunate and of grave concern that a person of Sawh's disposition was so brutally murdered.

"The union condemns such savage and ghastly acts and can only hope that the murderers are quickly brought to justice. All of us have been saddened...," GPSU added.
