Ramjattan has no authority to dismiss Top Cop

Former Minister of Home Affairs, Clement Rohee has called out the present Minister in charge of the security sector for attempting to discipline the Commission of Police – a move which he has no authority to do.
Public Security Minister, Khemraj Ramjattan had written a letter instructing the Top Cop, Seelall Persaud to go on leave to allow the Guyana Police Force (GPF’s) Christmas security plan to run smoothly. Ramjattan did not elaborate on why he wants the Top Cop absent during the Christmas season nor did he address concerns of his authority to instruct the Police Commissioner.

However, Rohee during a press conference today posited that Ramjattan has no authority to instruct Persaud.

Only recently, the High Court ruled that the Minister of State Joseph Harmon violated the constitution by writing a letter to the Police Service Commission (PSC) in which he instructed the body to halt police promotions.
