Guyana Defence Force regrets actions of Military Police in their attempt to arrest deserter at UG .

 

The Guyana Defence Force has concluded its investigations into the incident carried in the media that ranks of the GDF had attempted to arrest a student in the classroom at the University of Guyana.

The GDF wishes to state that our investigations revealed that ranks of our military police department, who have the authority to arrest persons who have deserted, exceeded the extent of their powers in that they entered unto private property where they have no jurisdiction.

The Force deeply regrets this incident and wishes to assure the public that it will continue to ensure that all its ranks operate in the ambit of the Law.
