Ramotar pleaded with Joint Services to issue ‘Press Release’ in order to pacify members of the public
(Editor’s Note: What’s in this press release, is furthest from the truth. So, in a meeting held late this afternoon with senior members of the Joint Services, Mr. Ramotar pleaded with them to issue a release in order to put the public’s mind at ease.)
The Joint Services of Guyana, having been directed by the Commander-in-Chief President Donald Ramotar, has secured the approach to Linden via the Kara Kara Bridge and roadway.
In an operation commencing at 0400h. today Sunday July 29, 2012, the Joint Services moved into the location, dislodged the protestors mobilized on site and took control of the bridge and roadway.
Earth moving equipment was deployed and commenced the removal of logs and other debris from the bridge and roadway. By 0545h. the Joint Services had completed clearing the bridge, opening the road corridor and informing the Commander-in-Chief.
The bridge and roadway have been secured by a detachment, but small pockets of debris may still be encountered. The Joint Services will however continue to clear as they are in place, in order to maintain the site open to vehicular traffic to and from the Linden community.
The Joint Services will, as instructed, maintain the road corridor open for the use of the Linden community.
