Kaieteur News was today forced to apologise for
Columnist Freddie Kissoon, in his column on June 10, launched a scathing attack on one of Guyana and the Caribbean's eminent personalities in the person of Sir Shridath Ramphal. His comments were not the views of the owner and publisher, or the newspaper. It is regrettable that such views were allowed to prevail and the newspaper offers Sir Shridath an unqualified apology. Some aspects of the commentary were libelous and should not have been allowed in the newspaper. The fact that Sir Shridath can live in a country other than Guyana is testimony to his contribution to the region. Mr Glen Lall, the publisher of Kaieteur News said that the comment recommending that Barbados should ask Sir Shridath to build a house in his native Guyana is both silly and obnoxious.
