Government condemns bomb scare at Clico


The Government of Guyana last evening issued a statement condemning “in the strongest manner” the latest attempts to delay and frustrate the ongoing payout to Clico policyholders.
The statement read:

“Earlier today, those who have engineered one tactic after another to frustrate this process over the past 18 months resorted to making a bomb scare telephone call to the company’s head office. The call proved to be a false alarm, after the building was evacuated and thoroughly examined by the emergency services.
“As on previous occasions, this latest attempt to frustrate was patently unsuccessful, and the process to meet with policyholders and conclude their business continued smoothly after clearance was given for staff and clients to return to the building. Such tactics could surely not be in the interest of the policyholders, and point directly at those who clearly have a design to disrupt the process and frustrate the policyholders for the purposes of gaining political mileage. “Government remains unswerving in its commitment to place policyholder protection and interests first in bringing this Clico matter to a closure,” the statement concluded.
