Former President Bharrat Jagdeo on Thursday denied knowing convicted Guyanese drug lord, Roger Khan or being part of any death squad.
Speaking at a news conference at the headquarters of his incumbent People’s Progressive Party, Jagdeo broke his silence on the widely held view that he had been associated with Khan who is serving an extensive jail term in the United States for cocaine trafficking. “I never met Roger Khan,” he said.
“Roger Khan was never my friend. In fact, he was friendlier from my intelligence reports with some of the names I mentioned before,” he added.
