The Guyana Sugar Corporation Inc. (GuySuCo) is notifying all persons who are illegally occupying or squatting on lands at Vryheid’s Lust, Success and Chateau Margot on the East Coast of Demerara, that these lands are the property of the Guyana Sugar Corporation’s East Demerara Cultivation (Enmore Estate).
The corporation is therefore advising that these persons immediately desist from such occupation.
The Corporation is currently in the process of reviving its operations at East Demerara and the squatting on these lands is hindering the land preparation process.
Additionally, a number of fields in the cultivation, house the Corporation’s Germplasm collection which is vital for the Corporation’s Cane Breeding Programme. Some of these fields have been vandalised by the squatting activities resulting in the destruction and or loss of material developed over a decade of scientific research in variety improvement.
These actions are therefore setting back the development of better yielding varieties by a number of years.
