United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday announced that the United States will be revoking visas from individuals “responsible for or complicit in undermining democracy in Guyana.”
Pompeo announced the sanctions during a live press conference streaming on the U.S Department of State Facebook page and was clear that “immediate family members and such persons may also be subject to restrictions.”
Pompeo also called on incumbent President David Granger to respect the results of the elections.
“The Granger Government must respect the result of democratic elections and step aside,” Pompeo warned.
“Today I am announcing visa restrictions on individuals responsible for or complicit in undermining democracy in Guyana. Immediate family members of such persons may also be subject to such restrictions,” he said.
Just recently, Pompeo warned of sanctions against those who seek to undermine democracy in Guyana.
