GEORGETOWN – President David Granger has ordered a Commission of Inquiry (COI) into the alleged assassination plot against him.

This was revealed by Minister of State Joseph Harmon Friday during a post Cabinet press briefing at the Ministry of the Presidency.

The Minister said within two weeks’ time, the government would make public the COI and the identity of the persons who would be leading the inquiry.

The President has the authority to order a COI into any matter that is of public safety and happiness of the people of this country, the Minister said.

“Any plot or attempt to cause harm to his Excellency must be something that is in the public interest. So it is not a matter of not having confidence in any particular entity but it is the right of the president to determine if he requires any deeper level of inquiry into any matter,” Minister Harmon explained.

In April reports, surfaced in the media of an alleged plot to kill the Head of State.

During the said period Harmon disclosed at a post-Cabinet press briefing that Cabinet and the Guyana Police Force (GPF) were aware of a reported threat made against President Granger’s life. (GINA)
