Berbice women in viral video abusing cops slapped with several charges
Two women who were caught on camera verbally and physically abusing ranks of the Rose Hall Police outpost are scheduled to appear at the Number 51 Magistrate’s Court on Thursday to answer several charges.
Yashminie Ramsew, 22 and her 30-year-old sister Mona Singh of #36 Village, Corentyne Berbice are charged with dangerous driving, damage to property, disorderly behaviour, assaulting a peace officer and resisting a peace officer.
Police Headquarters revealed that shortly before the incident at the Police outpost, Yashminie known as ‘Tina’ was driving motorcar PTT 5628 on December 2 when she reportedly struck a parked vehicle on the Rose Hall Public Road and drove away with her sister in the car.
Police said she was intercepted at Port Mourant by a Police patrol shortly after and directed to the Rose Hall Outpost where the drama ensued.
According to the Police, a breathalyzer test revealed that Yashminie was below the legal alcohol limit.
The women were videotaped by ranks at the outpost after their behaviour became abusive. The sisters can be heard telling the ranks that they will all be fired after contact is made with “Ramjattan” – presumably the Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan.
Yashminie is also heard using racial slurs to describe one Police Officer.
