[www.inewsguyana.com] – Eight persons were arrested and questioned into the murder of Political Activist, Courtney Crum-Ewing, who was gunned down on March, 10, at Third Avenue, Diamond Housing Scheme, East Bank Demerara.
A media release from the police stated that those questioned were subsequently released; however the police are actively questioning persons from the community and scrutinizing video footage as the investigation continues.
Crum-Ewing was assassinated while urging residents of Diamond to vote for the Opposition Coalition at the upcoming May 11, 2015 general and regional elections.
Nigel Hughes, Chairman of the Alliance for Change (AFC) and Attorney – at – Law for the late political Activist, said a reward will be offered for information leading to the arrest of Crum-Ewing’s killers.
This is another avenue that is being explored by Crum-Ewing’s family in an effort to bring his killers to justice. The man’s family has also rendered the service of a private investigator into his killing, since they have expressed lack of confidence in the police in this regard.
