Hours after arriving in Guyana, Marcus Bisram was moments ago charged and remanded to prison for the murder of Faiyaz Narinedatt.
Bisram appeared at the Whim Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Renita Singh.
He was not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that between 31 October, 2016 and 1 November, 2016, he coerced, procured and commanded five persons to murder Faiyaz Narinedatt.
He was remanded to prison until December 2.
Bisram is being represented by attorneys-at-law Sanjeev Datadin and Dexter Todd.
While the matter is being prosecuted by State Prosecutor, Stacey Goodings.
The murder accused was extradited from the US to Guyana last night after fighting extradition for the last two years.
Soon after his arrival this morning, he was
 detained at an East Coast Demerara (ECD)’s Police Station then transferred to the Whim Magistrate’s Court where the murder charge was read to him.
Narinedatt was beaten to death by a group of Bisram’s friends when he allegedly slapped the US-based Guyanese who kissed him in the dark at a party Bisram held in November 2016 at Number 72 Village, Upper Corentyne.
The carpenter’s body was then pushed into the trunk of a car, taken to the Berbice public road, dumped and run over to make it appear as if it was a hit-and-run.
The gruesome killing of the father of two was reportedly ordered by Bisram, who flew to the US soon after.
At the time of Narinedatt’s murder, the police in Berbice treated his death as a road accident since Bisram was a close friend to the senior lawmen in that community, contributing significantly to a number of stations in that division. He was even recognized by the police for his contributions.
It was only after the dead man’s family met with the then Crime Chief, Wendell Blanhum in Georgetown and begged for ranks from the Major Crimes Unit to intervene then a thorough investigation was done.
In fact, from the inception, there was someone at the party who had witnessed everything. It was this person that led investigators to question five of Bisram’s friends which later resulted in confessions.
These men have all been charged. They are Orlando Dickie, Radesh Motie, Diodath Datt, Harri Paul Parsram, and Niran Yacoob. The accused have all identified Bisram as the mastermind in the murder.
In July 2017, Bisram was arrested in the US where he made countless effort to fight the extradition, arguing that there is no extradition between Guyana and the US but lawyers for the US government contended that a longstanding agreement between that country and Britain which had ruled Guyana up to the 60s, was still valid.
