Giftland Group has apologised for deliberately singling out and excluding NewsSource and Journalist, Gordon Moseley from a press conference today.
The company’s spokesperson, Lorenzo Persaud, in an email following condemnation from the Guyana Press Association (GPA), wrote: “Regarding the recent exclusion, I would also like to sincerely apologize to Mr. Mosely and the media houses. For this matter, I meant absolutely no disrespect and I assure all media personnel that this will not happen again.”
The GPA before the apology dubbed the exclusion as a “targeting of media workers and media houses.”
“This exclusion is a direct attack on a media house and should be rejected outrightly by all media workers and media houses. GPA calls on media houses to boycott any event in which our colleagues are excluded from,” an earlier statement issued by GPA’s President, Nazima Raghubir said.
