Police issue wanted bulletin for businessman Dorwain Bess


The Guyana Police Force on Monday issued a wanted bulletin for businessman Dorwain Bess.

He is wanted for questioning in relation to the publication of defamatory and libelous information in an effort to extort.

Police said Bess is 45-years-old and his last know address is 162 Rupa Place, Bel Air Park, Georgetown.

Bess was implicated by two reporters – Gary Eleazar and Alex Wayne – who are currently in custody and is expected to be charged for extorting $1 million from another businessman.

The men were interviewed by detectives and detailed the plan to extort a businessman, the Police Force noted in an official statement.

The arrests were made during a sting operation on Friday last and followed a report made to the police by the businessman who has since remained unnamed.

The arrest was first announced by Attorney General Anil Nandlall on Saturday.

On Sunday, the police confirmed the arrest and said Eleazar told investigators that he was contacted by Dorwain Bess who informed him that the businessman was evading taxes.

As a consequence, an article was written and reportedly sent to Rickford Burke, an overseas-based Guyanese, who Eleazar said posted it to the Guyana News Network Facebook page and website.

Additionally, Eleazar told the detective that he also sent five articles targeting other persons and at least one government agency to Burke.

GNN is known to post slanderous articles about individuals.
