see here the correct procedures being followed, an investigation by
the relevant authority, a report submitted and forwarded to those
entrusted and empowered to take the necessary actions.
Mr. Corbin and his echelons learn something of value here, the
following of the proper procedures, instead of attempting once again

Anthony listed a few elements of Dr. Jagan's charisma, and then
mentioned Mrs. Janet Jagan's steadfast support for him and his cause.
He reminded us of what Dr. Jagan himself wrote: "My wife, Janet,
influenced me with a deep and abiding faith and caring for the poor,
the disadvantaged and the handicapped, the oppressed and the
marginalized, and she has a very deep commitment to honesty in
politics. As a result I do not worry about anything. I work together
with her very closely we debate soundly without anything to worry
about or anything to hide. She has given me peace of mind."
a Guyanese citizen living abroad temporarily, I am indebted to Mrs.
Jagan for her selfless, priceless contribution to my country as a
freedom fighter, administrator, women's rights activist and
journalist. Mrs. Jagan deserves the greatest respect from all of us.
is mortifying these days, however, to read insulting and rude
references to her by columnists, commentators and correspondents who
are known opponents of the People's Progressive Party, as well as
those who profess loyalty to the party. People should avoid using
uncivil words like "amnesia" and "hard-headed
rhinoceros" when describing Mrs. Jagan, a founder and pillar of

and vilify his wife in the same breath, as some people are doing.
is therefore apt, thoughtful and gracious that Dr. Anthony has noted
Mrs. Jagan's role in Dr. Jagan's remarkable, unforgettable life.
