Mrs. Pitt:
Thanks for your response.

I did receive a copy of the Lethem enforcement report from Mr. Tudor.
The other items regarding the private developers I do not have because
I was not in Guyana for the December meeting.

I have the process map from Mr. Ally, however, a large number of my
questions still remain unanswered.

Who writes this offer letter?
How do you determine who is or isn’t a remigrant?
What policies or guidelines do you follow and was it approved at the
board level?
What checks do you carry out on applicants?
How does the information from MIS transfer to Land Administration?
Who verifies the integrity of information passed from the MIS to Land
et cetera

Please see memo attached

thanks in advance,
humble regards,
Mark Jacobs
