The United States embassy in Georgetown has issued a security alert, while increasing its security protocols.
In a statement on its website, which was issued this morning, the US Embassy said it has received threats against US interests and is urging US citizens to be on the alert and to exercise due caution.
Although the US Embassy did not specify the nature of the alleged threats, it confirmed that security has been heightened.
“Out of an abundance of caution, we want to inform U.S. citizens that the embassy has increased security protocols due to receiving threats against U.S. interests,” the US embassy in Georgetown said.
The Embassy is also encouraging US citizens to “stay alert, and exercise caution.”
In the past, the Embassy has issued travel alerts and warned citizens about visiting specific areas and to even reconsider travel to Guyana, at specific times.
Contacted by News Source, Minister of Home Affairs Robeson Benn, who overlooks national security, appeared unaware of the statement which was issued today by the US Embassy.
While initially questioning whether it was not “fake news”, Mr. Benn eventually said he was unaware of any threat against US interests and was also unaware of the statement.
Acting Police Commissioner Clifton Hicken was also unaware of any threats against US interests or the Embassy increasing its security protocols.
The Top Cop said he will look into the matter.
