[www.inewsguyana.com] – A patient of the National Psychiatric Hospital who was charged with four counts of carjacking has been deemed unfit to stand trial by State Psychologist, Dr Bhiro Harry.
Twenty – four – year old Raymond Samaroo, a minibus driver, of 20 Owen Street, Kitty, Georgetown, was before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan for the indictable charge which read that on October 28 at Station Street, Kitty, he stole one Toyota Allion valued $3 million; the property of Eon Pearson.
The accused has been previously charged with three similar offences, including one instance of stealing a 4-Runner while the driver was purchasing a meal at a Chinese restaurant.
During the Preliminary Inquiry (P.I), the Magistrate had remanded him and ordered that he be evaluated by Dr Harry to determine whether he was fit to stand trial.
On Wednesday, December 16, Dr Harry’s report stated that Samaroo is incapable of standing trial. Attorney Paul Fung-A-Fat made an application for the file to be sent back to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice based on the P.I report.
Samaroo was placed on $10,000 bail and has been admitted to the Psychiatric Clinic.
