Legal woes deepened Wednesday for two of Guyana’s state-owned media companies, three privately owned media entities closely associated with Guyana’s ruling People’s Progressive Party (PPP) and Presidential Liaison Kwame McCoy.Last week the state entities admitted to defaming Rickford Burke, President of the New York-based Caribbean Guyana Institute for Democracy (CGID).The State-owned Chronicle newspaper and National Communications Network (NCN) Television were forced to apologize and retract a story that Burke was arrested in New York for identity theft.
