Guyana, Suriname at Odds After Embassy Parking Dispute
George and other officials intervened and called police.
An argument over parking at an embassy in South America has caused a minor diplomatic row between neighboring Guyana and Suriname.
Guyanese officials say the incident began when a drunk driver blocked the entrance to the embassy in Suriname’s capital and began arguing with a security guard after refusing to remove his car. They say officers then scuffled with George and entered the embassy to try to arrest him.
Guyana’s foreign ministry said Friday embassy staffers were traumatized by the actions of Surinamese police.
