Yesterday frustrated relatives of missing 10 year-old Ricky Jainarayan and the deceased Henry Gibson and Jainarayan Dinanauth staged a protest outside of the Vreed-en-Hoop Magistrate’s Court.
The protestors said their action is as a result of justice not being severed. They maintained that they will continue to do so on every court date until they get justice.
The protest started as the three former coast guard ranks Sherwyn Harte, 26, of Lot 123 Block C Eccles, East Bank Demerara, Delon Gordon, 21, of Lot 108 C Field, Sophia and Deon Greenidge, 20, of Lot 166 Middle Road, La Penitence turned up at the court.
The trio has been charged for the murder of Dweive Kant Ramdass which occurred between August 20 and August 22 at Caiman Hole, in the Essequibo River. Ramdass was on his way to Bartica with a large quantity of cash in a box to conduct business for his employer when he was taken off a boat he was in at Parika by three ranks in a Coast Guard vessel. The vessel left with the man heading in the direction of Bartica and that was the last time he was seen alive.
Persons believe that the same men who are before the court were responsible for the deaths of Dinanauth and Gibson and the disappearance of the 10 year-old.
Since the case started the relatives have been protesting the Leonora Magistrates Court. However the matter has since been transferred and as such the family members have moved to the Vreed-en-Hoop facility.
Meanwhile yesterday as the former army men made their appearance they were further remanded to prison until next Monday when the matter is expected to be called again.
One angry relative, Karen Ann Alexander, who is the niece of the dead men, said it has been four dreadful months and neither the police nor army seems to be doing anything.
Relatives are questioning why the paint analysis which was supposed to have been conducted has not been done to date.
Some three months ago samples of paint which were taken from a boat in which the two dead men were found was handed over to the police.
Yesterday when contacted for a comment Crime Chief of the Guyana Police Force, Seelall Persaud explained that the test was not done since the equipment which is to be used to do the testing – an Infrared Spectrometer – is still to be installed.
The Crime Chief added that a representative of the company from which the equipment was sourced is to visit Guyana soon to conduct training with local ranks on the use of the equipment. He added that the same company will also be doing the installation of the equipment. That he said is expected to be done by next month.
