Accused daughter arrested for taking photos of witnesses

Suriname piracy/murder PI

Police in Berbice on Monday arrested a teenager who was allegedly taking pictures of witnesses in the Suriname piracy attack/murder preliminary inquiry.
The 16-year-old was taken into custody while at the Springlands Magistrate’s Court.
Reports are the main suspect, Nakool Manohar, called ‘Fyah’, had allegedly issued death threats to witnesses when they appeared in court to testify. He was charged for the murder of Tilacknauth Mohabir, called “Caiman”.
It is alleged that between April 26 and May 3, 2018, while at sea, Manohar and Premchand Persaud, aka ‘Sinbad’ murdered Mohabir.
However, the two are not the only ones charged for that murder. Alexander DenHeart is also facing a charge for the murder of Tilacknauth Mohabir
On Monday, the matter was called for the first time before Magistrate Alex Moore, who questioned the rationale behind the men being charged separately for the same murder. Magistrate Moore said deliberating filing separate jackets defeats the rule where two proceedings are identical.
The prosecution is contending that DenHeart is a witness against the two, and if charged jointly, he will not be able to give evidence against his co-accused. The Prosecution was given until January 29th to prove to the court why all accused should not be charged jointly.
Between April 27 and 28, 2018, several Guyanese fishermen were killed when pirates attacked their boats in the Atlantic Ocean.
Four boats with a total of 20 fishermen were victims of the attacks, during which some persons were burned with hot oil, attacked with cutlasses, and forced to jump overboard with anchors tied to their feet at Wia Wia Bank in the Atlantic Ocean. To date some of the men are still missing.
