CARICOM SG on media accident

(CARICOM Secretariat, Turkeyen, Greater Georgetown , Guyana )
Statement by H.E. Edwin Carrington
CARICOM Secretary-General
On the
Fatal Accident involving Media in Guyana

I note with great distress the untimely death of our young media practitioner and the varying degrees of injury suffered by others, while on assignment, as a result of the horrific accident on the Linden highway last Saturday evening.

Throughout the Caribbean Community and beyond, my officers and I work closely with the media on public information, education and development. Given that Guyana is the Headquarters of the Community; the home of the CARICOM Secretariat, my own interaction with the media in Guyana is considerable and regular. As a result this tragedy is extremely and personally painful.

On behalf of the Staff of the CARICOM Secretariat, I offer words of comfort and expressions of sympathy to the families and relatives of the deceased, and affirmations for a speedy recovery of the injured.
