Two of three men arrested in connection with the 2012 murder of Sadeek Juman, who was found dead in the pool of the Double Day Hotel, Tuschen, East Bank Essequibo (EBE), are expected to be charged today.
The two men are expected to make their appearance before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
Late last week, three persons including the Manager of the hotel along with an employee were detained by Police following information of their involvement in the crime.
The Police expressed optimism that they are developing a very strong case against the suspects.
On the day of his death, Juman, who was 25 years old, left his Blankenburg, West Coast Demerara home to visit his grandmother who resides in Ruby, EBE.
However, later that day, Juman accompanied by friends, headed to the hotel’s poolside and bar.
Based on information received, while at the hotel, the deceased became involved in a heated argument with a group of men. They reportedly beat him severely, after which they reportedly hid his unconscious body in one of the hotel rooms, before later disposing of his body. Juman’s body was discovered the following day floating in the hotel’s pool.
However, relatives of the man said they were told by an employee that at around 10:00h on the day of the discovery, the pool was checked and no one was there.
In addition, a camera that was usually placed in the direction of the pool could not be found. This was brought to the attention of Police Officers who then launched an investigation.
More recently, the Police Force’s Major Crimes Unit, which is known for solving cold cases, cracked this one.
Family members of the dead man, especially his mother, Farida Juman, are elated with the new development and praised Police officials for their work.
