Guyana, Britain Resume Cooperation on Security Reform

SAN JUAN – The governments of Guyana and Britain have reached agreement on the resumption of a Security Sector Reform Action Plan that London suspended eight years ago amid policy differences.

The accord followed a meeting between President David Granger and British Prime Minister David Cameron, Guyanese Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan said on Tuesday.

“It would appear that the government of Britain wants that thing to go on now because they see in the new administration a different approach,” Ramjattan said.

The minister said a new assessment of needs will be undertaken by Olive Group, a British government contractor, as eight years have passed since the program was due to start.

As part of the study, interviews have already been conducted with Ramjattan and other government ministers as well as with police and prison officials and members of the judiciary.

The $4.7 billion Security Sector Reform Action Plan was scrapped by the British government eight years ago after major disagreements with the administration of Guyana’s then-president, Bharrat Jagdeo.

Granger’s government says Jagdeo rejected some of London’s conditions for the aid, including that British personnel would work closely with Guyanese counterparts and give advice on critical issues.
