Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

With wan­ted bul­le­tins being is­sued by both the Gu­y­a­na Po­li­ce For­ce (GPF) and In­ter­pol for Mar­cus Bri­an Bis­ram, the al­le­ged mas­ter­mind be­hind the mur­der of Ber­bi­ce car­pen­ter, an in­di­vi­du­al clo­se to the pri­me sus­pect has re­por­ted­ly of­fe­red the vic­tim’s wi­fe a whop­ping USD 50 mil­li­on. The vic­tim’s wi­fe, Pooja Pi­tam, al­le­ged that the in­di­vi­du­al in­for­med her that Bis­ram was wil­ling to pay USD 20 mil­li­on to sett­le the mat­ter. When the wo­man re­fu­sed the of­fer, the in­di­vi­du­al re­por­ted­ly re­tur­ned two days la­ter and rai­sed the sum to USD 50M. Again, Pi­tam re­fu­sed to ac­cept the mo­ney and told the in­di­vi­du­al that no amount of mo­ney can bring her hus­band back. Not sa­tis­fied with the res­pon­se, the sa­me per­son al­le­gedly ap­pro­a­ched ano­ther re­la­ti­ve of the vic­tim, Ab­dool Ri­zan Sha­reek. “I cha­sed him out the yard be­cau­se we want jus­ti­ce and not their mo­ney. If his fa­mi­ly was to ac­cept that mo­ney then the per­sons who kil­led him will walk free”, Sha­reek said. He said that all the re­la­ti­ves want at this point is jus­ti­ce. The Mi­nis­ter of Pu­blic Se­cu­ri­ty, Khem­raj Ram­jat­tan was in­for­med of the of­fer when he vi­si­ted the vic­tim’s re­la­ti­ves last week­end.

Ram­jat­tan told the fa­mi­ly that he will speak to the Di­rec­tor of Pu­blic Pro­se­cu­ti­ons to send a sta­te coun­sel to pro­se­cu­te the mat­ter which has been trans­fer­red to the Spring­lands Ma­gi­stra­te’s Court. For the car­pen­ter’s mur­der, the­re are se­ven per­sons be­fo­re the court. The mul­ti-mil­li­o­nai­re, who is the foun­der of the Mar­cus Bri­an Bis­ram Foun­da­ti­on, is said to ha­ve do­na­ted USD 2M to a Ber­bi­ce Com­mu­ni­ty Po­li­cing Group and re­cent­ly pled­ged USD 200M an­nu­al­ly to the needy in Ber­bi­ce. It is al­le­ged that Na­ri­ne­datt was mur­de­red bet­ween Oc­to­ber 31 and No­vem­ber 1, last at Num­ber 70 Vil­la­ge, Co­ren­ty­ne, Ber­bi­ce. Na­ri­ne­datt’s bo­dy was found on No­vem­ber 1, on the Num­ber 70 Vil­la­ge, Co­ren­ty­ne, Ber­bi­ce.
