Seeking justice for Isaiah and Joel Henry cannot be associated with the level of criminality, destruction of property and robbery committed on innocent Guyanese; this behaviour is an injustice to the case of these two victims. This was according to the President, Irfaan Ali today.
The Head of State said that he was briefed by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) today on the “severity of attacks, damage to property, robberies and brutality associated with a number of the protest action in Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice).”
These individuals who continue to cause public harm and mischief cannot pretend to be doing so in the name of justice for Isaiah and Joel, he said.
“The Police has also updated me on the progress of their investigation and they have assured that they will leave no stone unturned in ensuring justice for Joel and Isaiah is achieved, professionally,” the President added.
He said that the police force has also given the assurance that the individuals who have caused harm to members of the public and private property will be identified and processed in accordance with the laws.
“I call once again on all Guyanese to condemn the brutal murder of Joel and Isaiah and to also condemn the brutality and unlawful behaviour of those who have inflicted injury, and robbed and damaged property of innocent Guyanese.
This is a time for us to reflect as a nation and to redouble our efforts towards strengthening relations. I therefore urge all Guyanese to act responsibly especially those in Region Five, and in keeping with the laws of our country,” he said.
