Five men were found guilty of the 2016 murder of Berbice carpenter Faiyaz Narinedatt following a trial before Berbice High Court Judge Navindra Singh.
Those convicted are Diodath Datt, Harri Paul Parsram, Radesh Motie, Orlando Dickie, and Niran Yacoob.
The charge against the men is that between October 31 and November 1, 2016, in Berbice, they murdered Narinedatt, a father of two.
Notwithstanding, the quintet was further remanded as sentencing has been set for December 28. Attorney-at-Law Latchmie Rahamat was the special prosecutor in this matter.
At the commencement of the trial, the men, who are jointly charged, pleaded not guilty to the capital offence of murder.
Reports are that on October 31, 2016, Narinedatt attended a party hosted by US-based Guyanese Marcus Bisram at his home.
It was alleged that Bisram made sexual advances against the father of two, who rebuffed his actions. As a result, Bisram allegedly ordered the five men to kill the carpenter.
He was reportedly beaten to death, and his body was dumped on the Number 70 Village, Corentyne, Berbice roadway. His killers then made it look like a vehicular accident.
As for Bisram, he was charged with the man’s death, but several court cases, which led to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), saw him being freed in March this year.
