As he awaits a response from President Irfaan Ali on his request for witness protection, Police Sergeant Dion Bascom has been asked by the Guyana Police Force (GPF) to report “immediately” for duty.
“We do have an obligation of self-preservation to ourselves [so] that if the President does not act by a particular time, we need to protect Mr. Bascom’s life. I don’t wish to be attending a funeral, giving a tribute to Mr. Bascom about how brave he was to stand up to corruption in the Guyana Police Force….We have an opportunity now,” attorney Nigel Hughes yesterday told reporters.
Hughes, who is representing Bascom, held a press conference at his Hadfield Street, George-town office during which he addressed the safety of his client, who is continuing to receive threats.
