Ministry of Health fire… Army major, businessman charged for treason

An army major and his wife are among three persons arrested and facing treason charges for the July 2009 fire at the Ministry of Health. This fire has been blamed on a gang of what has been described as local terrorists.

In custody are Major Bruce Munroe, 36, and his 39-year-old wife, Carol-Ann Munroe of 31 Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara. Carol-Ann Munro is said to be the owner of Achievers’ Academy, a private school at Soeskdyke.

Also in custody up to yesterday were owners of Soesdyke’s La Chalet Country Inn, Leonard ‘Junior’ Wharton, and his wife. However, the businessman’s wife has been released from custody.

According to the relatives yesterday, police have held Munroe and his wife beyond the 72-hours allowed without any charges. However, late yesterday police slapped them with treason charges. Wharton was also said to have been charged.


  1. It is obvious therefore that this treasonous act is the handywork of the PNC. Munroe was acting on behalf of the PNC like so many terrorists of the past, so it is just a matter of time before they are caught. Juliette Holder Allen, Pay Attention!!!

  2. the PNC is trying at all angle to dispose of the ppp government rather than via the right way of having a free and fair election where the people of Guyana will decide who they want to lead Guyana into the future.
