Home Top Stories Parliament security breached again, this time by singing woman
The security of the National Assembly was breached again on Thursday when a woman, who mysteriously had managed to pass through the security in place, started to sing “God is watching us” after Speaker Dr Barton Scotland had ended the morning’s session of consideration of the budget estimates.
The woman, who gave her name as Natalie McLennan, was reportedly seated in the Parliamentary Chambers on the Government’s side, and was quickly led out of the Chambers by security.
However, the echo of her voice could be heard as she continued to sing the said song while being escorted out.
McLennan reportedly told reporters that she had a right to listen to what was transpiring in the National Assembly.
The first incident of the security being breach at the National Assembly occurred recently when a woman dressed as Santa Claus barged into the Chambers from the Government side, and was heading towards Leader of the Opposition Dr Bharrat Jagdeo during his budget presentation. This woman was later identified as a secretary to a Government Minister.
On Monday, there was chaos in the House when Police ranks stormed the Chambers in an effort to remove an Opposition MP.
The drama continued when, on Wednesday, two plain clothes Police officers posing as journalists were ordered to leave the National Assembly.
