Sawh assassination is attack on democracy

-- President
`If we allow this murder to create division, then we hand victory to the enemies of this State’
PRESIDENT Bharrat Jagdeo last night declared that the assassination yesterday of acting Agriculture Minister Satyadeow `Sash’ Sawh was an attack on democracy in Guyana and appealed to Guyanese to rally to beat back the “forces of destruction”.

In a statement broadcast on TV and radio, he said Guyanese democracy was yesterday morning “attacked by forces which seek to destroy everything that this nation represents.”

“The callous assassination of Minister Satyadeow Sawh was not primarily an attack on an individual, but instead, it was a deliberate assault on the values of our nation. It was an attempt to destabilise our democracy and everything that we have fought so hard over the years to achieve.”

He added:

“We wish to express our deep sorrow and condolences to Sash’s family, friends and colleagues. The pain they are experiencing at this moment cannot truly be understood.
