Jan 29, 2009 News Comments Off on Family contends Guyanese woman was murdered in Barbados
Following the mysterious death of 38-year-old Bibi Hasim, who was found dead at her chicken farm work place in Barbados, her relatives are of the view that she was murdered.
However, they could not say who would want to murder her. Kaieteur News understands that the woman was reportedly inside the chicken cleaning container when the power was turned on.
The dead woman’s brother, Mohamed Hasim of Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara, told this newspaper that he believes that his sister was killed by someone at the chicken farm, since it is impossible for them to turn on the power for the container, without checking to see if anyone is inside, cleaning the container.
The woman has been living in Barbados for the past two years and leaves to mourn her husband.
Her body is expected to be in the country by Monday, after which a burial date will be set.
To date, the family members have not received any information from the company, Star Chick Ltd in Barbados, Crab Hill, St. Lucy.
This newspaper had earlier reported that the Guyana Consulate in Barbados is to meet with the management of a chicken farm on that island.
Guyana’s Honorary Consul, Norman Faria, had stated that he has arranged a meeting with the management of the firm, which is located in the northern St. Lucy parish. There are several other Guyanese working on the farm, and he intends to meet with them as well.
Faria praised the work of the Barbadian police, who contacted his office and briefed him on the matter, but said he is nevertheless making what he described as “certain inquiries”, including safety measures in place with the machinery.
Neighbours told the Sunday Sun newspaper of Barbados that the husband of the deceased also worked at the chicken farm, but she has no other relatives in Barbados.
Personnel at the Fire Services Probyn Street, St Michael headquarters responded to a call at 08:43 hrs, and it took approximately 20 minutes to free the woman, who had already died.
