Lawyers for Guyana university confirm that graduates cannot go on to the US to study

The Accreditation Council for Medical Education (ACCME), which can be accessed at http://www.accme.org has told the Guyana Guardian that this accreditation advertisement by Texila is a fraud and is being claimed under an entity that is fraudulently mimicking the real ACCME

GEORGETOWN, Guyana -- In a demand letter from the law firm of Hughes, Fields, and Stoby that was hand-delivered on Thursday to the Guyana Guardian, attorneys for the Texila American University seem to have admitted that any claim suggesting that students can go on to the United States, England or Europe for clinical training with a Texila degree will be a blatant lie.

At least this fact was clearly stated in a section of the letter that read, “In the aforementioned publication you published the following false and malicious statements about our client; (2) TAU claimed that students can go on to the United States, England or any other country in Europe (f)or clinical training after obtaining a degree from Textile. This was debunked as a blatant lie.”

Several legal minds with which the Guyana Guardian had consulted have since advised that that section of the letter is clearly implying that the university is denying any claims to recognition of its degrees in those countries. Hence it is definitely fair to say that they have admitted that their degrees cannot be utilized in those countries, at least.

Therefore students who studied with ‘Texila American University’ cannot go on to the United States, the UK, or any European country for clinical studies, a fact that was already published by the Guyana Guardian.

But ironically, the same letter stated that Texila American University is now demanding $20 million from the publishers of the Guyana Guardian for publishing this fact.

In response, editor-in-chief of the Guyana Guardian, Dennis Adonis, said that the proprietors of Texila American University need to stop sending poorly written lawyer’s letters begging the Guyana Guardian for money and just file an action in Guyana’s High Court where all of the dirty linen will be washed, and from where the whole world will get to know the truth.

“I don’t know who told these people that you can just come here in this country and demand $20 million from people for publishing the truth,” Adonis said.

He concluded that Texila need to take their grievances to the court.

In the letter, demands were also made for the Guyana Guardian to remove an article with the headline “US Department of Education says that degrees issued by Texila American University are not recognized”.

However several advertisements by Texila and messages that were sent to students by Texila (and shared with the Guyana Guardian) have claimed that students can go on to the United States to study medicine with their degrees.

Texila American University was recently in the news after a team of international journalists and the Guyana Guardian had uncovered that claims made by the institution to foreign and local students about the quality of its medical degrees were not true.
