UPDATE: Overseas-based businessman expected in Guyana to face murder charge, female relatives to face obstruction of justice charge after $4M bribery attempt
The two women who attempted on Saturday (November 19) to thwart police investigations into the alleged murder of 27-year-old Faiyaz Narindatt will be charged with obstructing justice and placed before the court sometime next week.
One of the women is reportedly the mother of the alleged mastermind behind the killing, while the other is a sister of one of the suspects, who confessed to the crime.
The women turned up at the Major Crimes Unit in Georgetown on Saturday with $4M to pay for the release of the suspects but were promptly detained.
Police have since sought an extension from the court to detain the confessed killers, as investigations continue. So far nine people are in custody for Narinedatt’s murder.
Narinedatt, was beaten unconscious by the men, then placed in the trunk of a car and taken to the public road where he was run over by a car to stage the crime as a road accident and not a homicide.
The father of two met his demise after rejecting the alleged mastermind’s sexual advances. The businessman attempted to fondle Narinedatt who was intoxicated but rejected him.
The seemingly embarrassed and angry businessman allegedly instructed two villagers to “beat him and kill him and he is going to ensure that everything is okay.”
It was Narinedatt’s family’s insistence that caused the hierarchy of the force to remove police ranks from Upper Corentyne from the case. City investigators took over and acted swiftly and are in the process of closing the case.
Relatives are convinced that Narinedatt’s murder was staged by the wealthy businessman and that some ranks in Berbice were hampering the investigations because of their ties to him. Crime Chief Blanhum said an investigation has also been launched in that regard.
Post-mortem examinations revealed that The husband and father of two died of multiple injuries, including a fractured skull and a broken spine.
The businessman is currently in the United Sates of America and could be returned to Guyana to face justice.
The businessman has made numerous donations in the past to the Guyana Police Force and several other persons and students.
