Marcus Bisram charged with murder of Berbice carpenter


The infamous Marcus Bisram appeared before Magistrate Renita Singh at the Whim Magistrate’s Court Thursday charged with the 2016 murder of Faiyaz Narinedatt, a young father of two of #72 Village Corentyne.

Bisram made his appearance hours after he was extradited from the United States of America to face the charge which alleged that between October 31 and November 1, 2016, he coerced, procured and demanded Nyron Yacoob, Deodat Datt, Orlando Dickie, Haripaul Parasram and Radesh Motie to murder the carpenter.

Bisram, who was represented by Attorneys Sanjeev Datadin and Dexter Todd, was not required to plead to the charge and was remanded to prison until December 2.

The courtroom was packed with relatives of both Narinedatt and Bisram.

Before the matter was called, Bisram waited in a Police vehicle at the Whim Police Station where he was seen interacting with an overseas-based lawyer. He was brought to court by ranks of the Major Crimes Unit.

The victim’s mother, Bibi Shakeera Azeez, during an interview with the News Room, said she is satisfied the local authorities managed to extradite Bisram.

“This won’t bring my son back but he must see that the money he has won’t have stopped him from coming back. Although he try not to come, he still come.

Dead: Faiyaz Narinedatt

“Money nah got power and me still get some satisfaction. How I am grieving, I want him to feel what I am feeling,” the distraught mother told the News Room.

She said the murder of her son has destroyed the lives of his two young children and their mother who was 19-years-old at the time.

Narinedatt was found dead on the Number 70 Village Public Road on the Corentyne Coast.

Police at first treated the case as a road fatality but Georgetown Police was sent to the Corentyne and took on the case as a homicide.

The Police’s claim is that at the party on the night of October 31, Bisram made sexual advances against Narinedatt, including touching his penis, and when Narinedatt refused, by slapping him, he told others to kill the carpenter.
