"McCoy was adamant that the decision to withdraw the ads from the Stabroek News was a decision taken by Cabinet for all government advertisements to be placed in two dailies for economic reasons and the RDCs could not supersede Cabinet's authority since the RDC was created as an extension of Cabinet.
Up to that point, the government's position was that the cut-off of ads to SN was decided at the level of GINA.

Instead he said it was a GINA decision."
