Men wanted for murder of four fishermen captured in Suriname


The two men who are wanted for questioning in relation to the murder/piracy on four young Berbice fishermen have been arrested by the authorities in Suriname.

O’Brian Fraser called “Shines” and Anonth Boodrage called “Andy”, were arrested late Friday and are in Police custody in the Dutch-speaking territory.

The Guyana Police Force had issued a wanted bulletin for the duo.

The men are expected to be handed over to Guyanese authorities sometime next week as Suriname Police are also looking to press charges against them.

The men, who are both fishermen, are accused of orchestrating the attack on the SARA 1 which has left two Guyanese fishermen dead and two missing.
