Two workers from the NIS Vreed-en-Hoop branch are being disciplined based on a complaint by Ms Parvattie Persaud-Edwards, a staunch PPP/C supporter, former speech writer for Dr. Cheddi Jagan and mother-in-law of pardoned treason accused, Mark Benschop.
Anthony Dean, the acting manager for the branch and senior clerk, Ms Keneisha Meusa, were suspended for one month.
The workers were suspended based on a decision made by the NIS Board, which is in fact chaired by Dr Roger Luncheon, a senior member of the PPP, which suggests that the action was politically motivated.
Another move to insulate the PPP/C party folks. So you Public Servants be on the look out. Don't subject them to the ususal extended waits as us ordinary citzens.
To truly protect yourself, ensure you ask for ID....not that ID card issued by GECOM. ID issued by Freedom House.
It could mean your salary at the end of the month.
