PRESS STATEMENT By People’s National Congress Reform Thursday, April 7, 2006 Hall of Heroes Congress Place, Sophia.

The People’s National Congress Reform condemns the brutal killing of Mr. Ashmin Sheer Mohammed Gaznabi, Managing Director of S.A. Nabi & Sons.

This latest senseless killing is one in a long series of murders committed against persons of all strata of society. Mr. Sheer Mohamed comes from a highly respectable family with a long tradition of being one of the finest contractors in Guyana and the Caribbean. Many of his company’s final work dot the architectural landscape of Guyana the most recent being the Caricom Headquarters at Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara.

The People’s National Congress Reform is on record as repeatedly stating that these senseless killings are not only creating social tensions and driving fear into innocent people but in the long run will serve to discourage much needed investment in Guyana and create fertile ground for gangs, gangsters and drug cartels to dominate the economic marketplace of Guyana. We call on the Commissioner of Police and the Guyana Police Force to continue their strident approach to capture wanted persons, retrieve unlawful weapons and to restore security in Guyana.

We wish to extend our sincerest condolences to the family of the deceased and to the staff of S.A. Nabi & Sons.
