Marcus Bisram re-arrested
In a stunning twist Monday afternoon, Marcus Bisram was rearrested hours after he was freed; Police sources told the News Room Bisram was out buying alcohol and other items when Springlands Police arrested him.
The reason for his arrest is not known as yet. His attorney Sanjeev Datadin could not immediately say what reason was given by Police.
Bisram was freed of the charge that he ordered the murder of Berbice carpenter Faiyaz Narinedatt.
Just after he was freed he said the charge was fabricated against him and he vowed to continue his humanitarian work, pledging $200M annually to various causes.
“I feel justice was served; it’s been a long three years,” said Bisram, just after the case against him was dismissed by Magistrate Renita Singh.
Bisram rose to fame in Guyana for splurging his wealth on the Police, religious and social organisations, often throwing elaborate parties. It was at one of those parties on the night of October 31, 2016, that Police said he made sexual advances against the young carpenter while they were in the washroom.
When Nariendatt refused, Police claimed, Bisram told some of the men who were at the party to kill him.
A teen boy who was at the party was the State’s star witness, but in the end, he testified that he didn’t hear Bisram tell the men to kill Narinedatt. The music was too loud, he told the court.
The young carpenter was found dead on the N0. 70 village public road on November 1, 2016. Police initially said he was killed in an accident, but Police headquarters sent special investigators to probe the case and Bisram became the focus on the investigations.
