Daniel Seeram: Reg. 4 Chairman to be charged for assaulting wife


Chairman of Region Four (Demerara-Mahaica) Daniel Seeram is slated to appear in court next week to answer to a charge of assault allegedly committed on his wife.

Police Commander of Region Four, Assistant Commissioner Simon McBean, told the News Room that the charge has been filed.

This, McBean said is in keeping with legal advice obtained by the Police.

The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) had recommended that Seeram be charged.

The News Room understands that Seeram is expected to appear at the Sparandaam Magistrates’ Court on October 10.

He will be charged for allegedly assaulting his wife, causing grievous bodily harm.

The incident occurred on September 11 at their Cummings Lodge, Georgetown apartment at about 03:00 hrs.

Sources had told the News Room that Seeram returned home during the wee hours during which he and his wife got into a heated argument.

The argument escalated and the couple ended up in a scuffle during which they allegedly beat each other. It is also alleged that Seeram brandished his licensed firearm during the incident.

Seeram eventually left the apartment and a report was made at the Turkeyen Police station by his wife. At the time, there were visible marks of violence about her body.

Currently, both Seeram and his wife are on station bail.

In March last year, the former Guyana Defence Force (GDF) captain was involved in a similar incident.

He was charged and placed on bail for allegedly threatening his father-in-law with a gun during a heated argument at MovieTowne, Turkeyen.

Seeram is an executive member of the main opposition People’s National Congress Reform (PNC/R).

Following the incident, Opposition Leader, Aubrey Norton had said Seeram should give up the public office.

    OR KICK HIM OUT, JUST LIKE THAT. The wife must have gave him a good lickin’ so he called on his buddy- that gun. It shouldn’t have taken this long to lay charges against him…
