Dr Ashni Singh remains in the hot seat following Mash night accident
While the finance minister Dr Ashni Singh remains in the hot seat following that accident on Mash night, the Guyana Police Force Crime chief said that as far as he is aware the same procedures the force adopts in all accidents are being followed.
Questioned why the file had to be sent to the DPP and the minister was not treated like ever other citizen Persaud said the force has been following long-standing traditions.
The crime chief said is he was unaware that the Minister gave a statement to the Police. The Minister, through the attorney general, said he was not under the influence of alcohol, unlike what eyewitnesses have said. In addition, the Minister left the scene of the accident without rendering assistance, but one of his close friends, Brian Yong, soon showed up to make arrangements for a settlement.
