No opposition support for Government’s anti- money legislation unless amended
The private sector’s commission petition on the anti-money laundering bill was today voted down by the opposition parties in the national assembly. This was much to the dissatisfaction of the government side of the house who brought the petition of the private section for the opposition to reconsider the anti money laundering bill and its importance to Guyana.
The petition was put on the floor by government chief whip Gail Teixeira.
The opposition side of the house objected to the petition saying it was malicious, vexatious and grossly inaccurate and should not be read in the house.

The Government is in a rush to come up with legislation that can meet international standards or face sanctions.
