Less than 1% of prisoners in Guyana die in police custody.

Guyana Human Rights Association went on record in 2003 stating that the rate of extra-judicial killings was higher between 1980 to 1992 than under the current regime. The majority of people arrested in the country are not shot; the majority of them taken before the courts were not abused and that persons who die in custody are a fraction.

To be precise: less than one per cent of all prisoners in this country.
