Marcus Bisram set free after State fails to establish case against him
The flambouyant philanthropist Marcus Bisram was on Monday freed of the murder of Berbice carpenter Faiyaz Nariendatt after Magistrate Renita Singh found the State did not have evidence against him.
Bisram walked free from the Whim Magistrate’S Court in a case that had fascinated the nation. Bisram now says he will sue the State.
Bisram made his first appearance at the Whim Court on November 21, hours after he was extradited 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.
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.
He leaves to mourn two minor children and a young wife.
