Hardbeatnews, GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Thurs. Apr. 27, 2006: Leader of Guyana’s main opposition, Robert Corbin, seems to feel only divine intervention can help the country over come its woes, especially its rising crime rates.

Corbin, in an address to the nation yesterday, proposed “an inter-faith religious ceremony to symbolize our appeal to the Almighty for divine intervention to help to rescue our nation.” His comments come in light of the recent murders of agriculture minister, Satyadeow Sawh, his brother, Rajpat Rai, sister, Phulmattie Persaud, and security guard, Curtis Robinson.

“We propose also to engage more intensely with religious leaders and non-governmental organizations in dialogue on the mutually reinforcing role that we could play either together or in our respective organizations,” stated Corbin, as he attempted to proffer solutions to curb the murder rates that have claimed the lives of almost 50 Guyanese since January 1, 2006.

He also pledged his party’s commitment “to work assiduously and unreservedly with other stakeholders towards the development of a genuine national strategy to confront the dangers that threaten to overwhelm us all.”

This as several members of the Guyana police and army staged a second joint conduct operation in Buxton, East Coast Demerara, setting up camp there. The government has long identified the area as a hotbed for criminal activity. Eighteen nationals in the village were nabbed yesterday. –
