Another Magistrate under fire for “slap on the wrist” treatment


police-badge[] – The Guyana Police Force moments ago expressed its concern at what it says is the “slap on the wrist” treatment given to persons convicted of Noise Nuisance. 

The force reminded that noise nuisance is now plaguing the society, with numerous complaints being made by citizens and consequently the police expend a lot of time and resources in processing Noise Nuisance reports.

To support its claim the Force recalled that following police response to a report of noise nuisance Vishnu Ramdial, a businessman of Success, East Coast Demerara was brought to the police station where he was processed and released, whereupon he proceeded to threaten the complainant. He was later charged by the police with Threatening Language and two counts of Noise Nuisance.

He appeared before Magistrate Zarina Alli at the Sparendaam Magistrate Court today (Wednesday December 03), where he pleaded not guilty to the Threatening Language charge and guilty to the Noise Nuisance charges.

The Magistrate placed Ramdial on bail in the sum of $10,000 in relation to the Threatening Language charge and he was reprimanded and discharged on the two Noise Nuisance charges.

The police said, given the negative impact of Noise Nuisance on the society and citizens’ desire to be relieved of this nuisance, it is expected that sentencing by the Court will serve as a deterrent in an impartial manner.
