The Kaieteur News has discontinued the Freddie Kissoon column over a disagreement between the columnist and newspaper owner, Glen Lall. Kaieteur News editor, Adam Harris said Lall and Kissoon had a stormy encounter over when a meeting should be held and who enjoyed the right to fix the time.
After being abused an labeled a 'PPP lap dog' by Kissoon, Lall ordered that the column be stopped immediately, citing the columnist's disrespect towards him and his family.
Kissoon also sent several e-mails to fellow columnist, Stella Ramsaroop, containing offensive comments about her her, the publisher and a number of staff-members.
Kissoon then immediately began to peddle the lie that the decision by Lall to withdraw the column had to do with Peoples Progressive Party (PPP) selection his ‘family-friend’, Donald Ramotar to be its presidential candidate.
