US VISA RESTRICTIONS IMPOSED ON GUYANESE INDIVIDUALS FOR UNDERMINING DEMOCRACY

A news release from the US State Department on 15 July advised that the US had imposed a travel ban on individuals said to be responsible for, or complicit in, undermining democracy in Guyana.  Immediate family members of such persons may also be subject to these restrictions. It says that all international observers of the vote in the election in March agreed that result based on the procedures used would not be credible. The visa sanctions were placed on members of Guyana’s ruling government and the US also called for President David Granger to “step aside”.  However, the US has not made public the names of those subject to the ban.
