A driver attached to the National Communications Network has been accused of forging a Guyana Press Association Media pass, the organisation has said.
In a statement on Monday GPA without naming the individual or the entity he is attached to warned the general public that forgery of its media passes is a criminal offence.
“It is unfortunate that a staff member of a media house who is not among the category of workers accredited by the media house or GPA was found in the possession of a forged media pass. The staff member claims that he bought the document. That document bore the signatories of two officials including a former Commissioner of Police,” the GPA statement read.
It added that the media house dealt with the matter swiftly and the matter was reported to the Guyana Police Force by the GPA. The man has since been arrested.
“If any member of the public is found in possession of a forged copy of a media pass, this would be reported to the police,” the statement concluded.
