Guyanese President Irfaan Ali says the protest by residents over the alleged release of a police officer linked to the murder of a young man is not all about justice.
In an earlier broadcast, President Ali urged residents on the East Coast of Demerara to allow the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) to do its work.
The Guyana Police Force (GPF) denied reports that a policeman who allegedly shot and killed a resident several days ago had been released.
President Ali told the nation that he had also been informed that a second police officer is now in custody, assisting the investigators with the probe.
But as the protests continue, Ali, in a statement on his Facebook page, wrote: "Today, a man threatened my life. And, the Member of Parliament who filmed it did not denounce the statement".
