Two more charged for murder of Corentyne fishermen


Two men who were nabbed in Suriname and deported to Guyana have been charged with the high seas piracy/murder of four Corentyne, Berbice fishermen.

Anonth Boodrage, 20, of Belvedere Squatting Area and Ricardo Fraser, 22, of Epson Village were charged and remanded to prison for the murders of Lamar Petrie, Kawal “Ajay” Kissoon, Vishnu “Kevin” Seeram and Marvin “Buddy” Tamessar.

The fishermen had departed the Number 65 Village Wharf on October 5 but failed to return. An alarm was raised after their fishing boat was found abandoned at the Wellington Park Foreshore with bloodstains; the engine and a piece of seine were missing.

Both men were apprehended in Suriname and subsequently deported on Wednesday after the Guyana Police Forced issued wanted bulletins.

They were unrepresented when they appeared before Magistrate Renita Singh on Friday at the Albion Magistrate Court to answer to the charge which stated between October 5th and 13th, in the company of others they murdered the four men during the course of a piracy.

The duo will return to court on November 14 at the Whim Magistrate Court where they are expected to be jointly charged with three others namely Narine Dhanraj, Suresh Sundat and Lennox Grimmond  who were previously charged and remanded.

To date the partially decomposed bodies of Petrie and Kissoon were recovered with their hands and feet tied at the Mahaicony and Abary , Region 5 (Mahaica –Berbice) Foreshore.

It is believed that the bodies of Seeram and Tamessar were tied and anchored, hence they did not wash ashore.
