PRESS RELEASE The Tragic Shooting of Police Officers at the Brickdam Police Station People’s National Congress Reform Congress Place Secretariat Sophia, Georgetown Tuesday, March 2, 2004




The People’s National Congress Reform is saddened by the tragic death of two members of the Guyana Police Force, Superintendent Richard Griffith and Lance Corporal Ramnarine Latchana.

It is shocking to imagine that a former member of the Force could take up arms against his erstwhile colleagues and one wonders what psychological difficulties he must have experienced. It goes without saying that a thorough investigation should be initiated to uncover the root cause of this dastardly act and every step should be taken to minimize the possibility of a re-occurrence.

Meanwhile the People’s National Congress Reform joins the rest of the nation in prayers for a speedy recovery of all those hospitalized as a result of this incident and extends its deepest sympathies to the families who are immersed in sorrow and pain.
