[www.inewsguyana.com] – Director of Public Prosecutions, Shalimar Ali – Hack has recommended that criminal charges be filed against former Minister of Health under the People’s Progressive Party government, Bheri Ramsaran.
iNews understands that Ramsaran will appear at the Whim Magistrate’s Court before the end of the week. He is the second former PPP Minister to be charged in less than a week.
His charges stem from a verbal spat between himself and Women Rights Activist, Sherlina Nageer, in which he threatened to slap and strip her naked. The confrontation was caught on video and resulted in his dismissal as a government minister by former President, Donald Ramotar just before Guyanese went to the polls on May 11.
However, the PPP has chosen him to be a Parliamentarian. Ramsaran had apologized to Nageer, after verbally assaulting her on April 20 outside the Whim Magistrate’s Court in Berbice, but she did not accept.
During the confrontation, he threatened to slap and strip Nageer, who interrupted his interview with Reporters who were challenging him to defend his record in government.
The exchange of words was recorded, the contents of which was revealed by the media on March 21.
“Shut your mouth and get out my face…I am not entertaining you…You idiot, we have less maternity. I am a Candidate leading these people. We are going to win the elections and do better….Get the hell out of my face…. F off” said Dr Ramsaran could be heard saying on the recording.
He went on to tell Nageer that she is “a little piece of shit…idiot,” and asked a nearby police officer to arrest her.
