Chandra Sohan An attorney and the mother of United States-based Guyanese murder accused Marcus Bisram were yesterday both charged with attempting to get a witness to give false evidence in his preliminary trial. Attorney Chandra Sohan, who was once a magistrate, and Sharmila Inderjali, the mother of Bisram, were charged separately with the crime in separate courts in Berbice yesterday. Sohan, 52, of Lot 47 Palmyra Village, was charged at the New Amsterdam Magistrate’s Court with attempting to obstruct the course of justice in the PI into the charge against Bisram and the five others accused in the murder of Number 70 Village carpenter Faiyaz Narinedatt. Bisram is still fighting his extradition to Guyana to answer the charge against him. It is alleged that between June 1st, 2017 and June 30th, 2017, in his capacity as an attorney, Sohan allegedly advised a witness, Zubair Ally, to give false evidence before Magistrate Rabindranauth Singh in the PI and made an appearance before Magistrate Singh indicating that the statement by Ally was false.
