Hardbeatnews, GEORGETOWN, Guyana, Tues. May 2, 2006: Guyana’s President Bharrat Jagdeo yesterday categorically stated that the country’s Army will now “live” in the backlands of the village of Buxton, one of the areas pinpointed by government as a hot bed for criminal activities.

The move, Jagdeo told the media yesterday, is just the beginning of a number of new initiatives the administration will be taking to tackle the increase in criminal activities in the South American nation.

“We have to hunt down these people…… we’ve asked for external help and I think that help is forthcoming, at least from the Canadians and the Americans and we hope that with the external help, with more aggressive help, with more aggressive action on the part of the Police and the Army, not more operations, but more effective operations, meaning that you actually apprehend people, I think that we can deal with this,” President Jagdeo stated.

And he reemphasized his faith in the country’s security forces, stating he feels the army and police are capable of doing the job.

‘Operation Take Back Buxton,’ comes in light of the April 22 murder of Guyana’s agriculture minister, two of his siblings and a security guard. Police have made no arrests in the high profile case to date while other murders, including that of Ronald Waddell and Gazz Shermohamed, remain unsolved. –
