The president of Guyana has asked police to investigate who is impersonating him on Facebook, the social networking website.
A government statement said that Bharrat Jagdeo was not a Facebook member, the Associated Press reported.
The apparent Jagdeo page has more than 170 supporters, and features images of the president as well as his biography.
Last year, a Moroccan was jailed for setting up a Facebook profile in the name of a member of the royal family.
Facebook also removed two bogus profiles of Bilawal Bhutto, son of the murdered Pakistani politician Benazir Bhutto, after an investigation found the entries "not authentic".
