Anna Goodridge: THE libel case that the President has brought against Kaieteur News, its Chief Editor and Columnist, Freddie Kissoon, has been long in coming and no one I’m sure is surprised by this.
Mr. Kissoon has been allowed to go on long rants and rampages about the President, the government and other individuals at will, and with the consent and approval of his co-defendants in this matter, for way too long.
Not only has he spewed filth at every possible investment initiative that has been put forth, but he has ferociously and repeatedly personally attacked the character of the Head of State on numerous occasions and should be made to pay for this. He is bitter and his every written word in the daily Kaieteur Newspaper is indicative of this and shows a complete and total lack of proper journalistic ethics.
Not to mention he is allowed to go on these rampages of personal attacks on a daily basis by the publisher and editor of the newspaper, who ultimately have the final say as to what is printed within the pages of this publication.
I support this move by the President, if it’s only to teach these three individuals a much needed lesson on professional ethics and responsible journalism.
