Gya: Jagdeo says Khemraj's a rat
Moses Nagamootoo in a speech in New York City on March 17 said that President Bharrat Jagdeo did accuse Khemraj Ramjattan of taking news to the US embassy. The signatures mustered by Freedom House from 29 persons, he said, reflected the pattern of lying inculcated throughout the history of the late PPP, especially since the demise of Dr Cheddi Jagan. The names of several senior members of the party executive were called.
Mr Nagamootoo in his almost two-hour speech slammed the PPP. On the Khemraj Ramjattan issue, he said, "Ramjattan is a man I would like to have in my team, Ramjattan has integrity." He also said Ramjattan was given an excessive and unwarranted penalty.
