Leader of the Alliance for Change (AFC) party, Khemraj Ramjattan wants the public to have access to the full report that was recently completed by the CARICOM’s Regional Security System (RSS).

The Ministry of Home Affairs on Friday in a press statement disclosed that the RSS found no evidence of corrupt practices or any attempt to cover up the murder of Ricardo Fagundes also known as ‘Paper Shorts’.

“The AFC would like the public to have the complete report done by CARICOM’s RSS in connection with the investigation of the Fagundes murder,” Ramjattan said recently during a press conference.

According to Ramjattan, it is important that the public know whether the Guyana Police Force (GPF) handled the matter with professionalism.

“It is important to know whether our Police Force handling of the matter thus far, was an exhibition of competence and professionalism; and whether any of the prime suspects were given immunity or were handled with silken gloves.” Ramjattan added, “The AFC reiterates its position that all are equal under the law and no one is above it. Murders in this land must not be committed with impunity.”

Attorney-at-law Nigel Hughes who is representing Bascom has also written to the Commissioner of Police (Ag) Clifton Hicken for the full release of the report.

The RSS review was sought by President Irfaan Ali after Police Sergeant Dion Bascom took to Facebook to vent his frustration in what he deemed as mistreatment in the Guyana Police Force (GPF). He had claimed that there was a conspiracy to get rid of him and cover up ‘Paper Shorts’ murder.
