[www.inewsguyana.com] – The Guyana Police Force is looking to level charges against the father of one of the two young men, who confessed to strangling 17 – year – old Dhanraj Latchman to death last week Wednesday night in the Parika Backdam.
Crime Chief, Leslie James in an interview with iNews confirmed that the police are examining the possibility of charging the man for his actions during the course of the police investigation.
After the two cousins confessed to killing their friend, they told investigators that they hid his car keys and his cell phones at a home in Third Street Lusignan, East Coast Demerara. They told the investigators exactly where in the house the items were hidden.
However, when the police arrived at the home, the items could not be found. Under intense questioning by the police investigators, the father of one of the men admitted that he took the items from where his son hid them and placed them in another location.
The keys and phones were discovered buried outside the house.
It is a criminal offence to obstruct justice. The people must be educated and a strong message needed to be sent.
People need to come forward and help the police solve crimes. In due time, our Society will continuously get better.
