LACK of hard intelligence is stalling investigations into the assassination of Minister Satyadeow Sawh, Cabinet Secretary Dr. Roger Luncheon said yesterday.

He said Government was “totally dissatisfied” with the investigations into the assassination one month later, but recognised that reliable information is not forthcoming.

He said poor intelligence continues to plague law enforcement agencies.

Minister Sawh, along with his Canadian siblings Rajpat Rai Sawh, Pulmattie Persaud, and security guard Curtis Robertson, were gunned down on April 22 at his LBI, East Coast Demerara home.

Referring to Government’s early pronouncement that Minister Sawh was assassinated by political elements, he said “hard information” is necessary to secure a prosecution, but this has dodged the law enforcement agencies.

The Guyana Police Force and the Guyana Defence Force launched an intense campaign to restore law and order following Minister Sawh’s assassination as it marked a new high in a spiralling crime wave.

They have set up camp in Buxton, the East Coast Demerara village where heavily armed criminals are thought to be holed up.

Their operations are also aimed at recovering the 30 AK-47 rifles and five pistols which were discovered missing from Army Headquarters, Camp Ayanganna earlier this year.
