The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation confirmed on Thursday that Charrandass Persaud is no longer representing the Government of Guyana in the capacity of High Commissioner.
In a press statement, the Ministry indicated that Persaud is currently in the process of winding down his administrative responsibilities and taking steps to organize his personal affairs.
On Wednesday, the Alliance for Change alleged that Persaud is scheduled to be a “guest of honour” at the India Economic Trade Organization’s (IETO) reception on Friday, November 25, 2022. The AFC shared what it claims to be an electronic invitation for the event, which listed Persaud as High Commissioner of the Republic of Guyana.
President Irfaan Ali on October 26 recalled Persaud one day after a video of him verbally abusing an Indian national made its way into the media sphere. The President maintained the behaviour of Persaud is not reflective of the relationship Guyana is seeking to sustain with India.
