Former ministers, others urged to return State property

Former ministers, others urged to return State property

THE Government of Guyana has called on all former ministers of government, public officers and employees of the State, government, public corporations, State agencies or statutory bodies to return all documents and property belonging to the State.

The government, in a public advisory, has directed the call to the above mentioned functionaries whose services have been expressly or impliedly terminated, and have been sent on administrative leave.

These officers are hereby advised to return those documents and/or properties immediately to the accounting officers of the ministries, public corporations, agencies and/or statutory bodies where they were previously employed, or may be still employed.

The APNU+AFC Government was voted out of office in the March 2, 2020 General and Regional Elections, but the results were officially announced by the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) more than five months after voters went to the polls.

Several attempts by actors at GECOM to tamper with the elections results to facilitate a false declaration failed, and the APNU+AFC Government was forced to demit office, in light of mounting international pressure to honour the will of the people.

Prior to demitting office, the Coalition had lost a number of key elections-related court cases, and many of its senior members incurred sanctions by the US in the form of visa revocation.
