Two Kaieteur News security guards charged for murder, remanded


Two Kaieteur News security guards were on Monday remanded to prison for the murder of a vagrant who was beaten to death at the newspaper’s premises at Saffon Street, La Penitence.

Tony Waldron, 39, and Yan Licorish, 49, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and were not required to plead to the charge that on March 16 they murdered 58-year-old Mohabir Singh.

The duo was represented by attorney-at-law Latchmie Rahamat and were remanded to prison until April 19, 2021.

According to reports, on the day in question, Singh’s lifeless body was found under a shed on the Kaieteur News premises at Saffon Street, La Penitence.

A post mortem examination done by Government Pathologist, Dr. Nehaul Singh, gave Singh’s cause of death as brain haemorrhage due to blunt trauma to the head.

Initial investigations led to the arrest of the two security officers after detectives reviewed footage from CCTV nearby.
