[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.

  1. How dare you describe your ex- president and next president as a cuss bird ? Have some respect , Bro.

  2. Just goes to show this beast has no moral compass and would probably say the same thing to his wife, daughter or sister. The fact he is or was a government office goes to show the depths that law, order and sheer decency in Guyana has fallen under the previous administration…. A professional individual would have totally blanked her if she was provoking a reaction from him but yet again, this man is no professional….thank The Lord for May 11th and the return to a level of decency and professionalism that needs to be upheld by those in power representing Guyana

  3. you are a typical abuser, so a woman can’t talk now eh. she provoked him, oh really… no wonder the ppp felt as though they own the bloddy country and can do whatever they wanted to the citizens. good riddance to the ppp criminal cabal. they done with!

  4. The part which Inews so conviently for got to put in was when the former minister was asking the woman to desist as he is conducting an interview, if you listen to the entire tape it’s clearly shows that Nageer provoked the man. Now with that said this woman is a known trouble maker, days before the opening of the Marriott Hotel she again was on tape violently abusing and being disrespectful to ranks of the police force. Let’s not get carried away here people the real issues should be addressed here and that is this woman is A snobbish trouble maker.

  5. .
    This guy should just go quietly into the night. never to be heard from again.
    Move on Guyana and feel sorry for his wife.

  6. Derryckgriffith, derrickgriffith… now slow down here Buddy….. what will be nature of the charge ? …grace whatttt ? Confines of legislature ? by whom ? The elections have been tarnished… those in the reigns of power are already tarnished, you loosing sight of the voting descrepancies of the Statement of Polls … then we have the infamous Bannuh and he counterpart are sitting there !!!! Gimme ah break !!!! The Vice President of Security tell folks publicly including members of the press core to “haul yuh ass”…more to come… it might not be witch hunt…. but there is another name for it…

  7. LOCK HIM UP ,IT A SHAME, HE HAS NO MANNERS, WHERE DID HE GO TO SCHOOL? ,NOT ONLY HIM, THERE ARE OTHERS LIKE HIM, ……AND FOR YOUR IMFORMATION, OUR PRESENT GOVERMENT IS DOING A GOOD JOB WITH WHAT THEY HAVE, WITH WHAT THE PPP LEFT, IN CHOAS, TRYING TO STEAL, EVERYTHING THEY COULD, GET…………MINISTER ARE SERVENTS OF THE PEOPLE, AND MUST EXERCISE CERTIAN PROTOCALS WHEN DEALING WITH THE PUBLIC

  8. Oh how the might have fallen. These little Caesars really thought that they owned Guyana and the little people just have to get in step. Of course they took their cue from King jagdeo himself Mr slap. A bunch of cavemen.

  9. This is not the 1970s the 1980s or even the 1990s. This is the SECOND decade of the 21st century and like slavery and indentureship, such things as “SLAP & STRIP ” just aren’t done anymore – or even threatened. These guys who hold high PUBLIC office have to understand that and stop harping back to what was accepted decades ago and recognize that women are not to be treated anyhow anymore, and to do as you please with. Those who call this a “witch huntin” I guess never had a mother, sister, daughter, niece or other close female relative or friend. Whoever referrs to this up-coming charge on Bherri Ramsarran as being “witch hunt” are actually saying loud and clear that they will do the same to a female if the occasion arises. NO, NO, NO! NOT ANYMORE! And to think that there is a big sign board in the North Block of the Georgetown Hospital which states “STOP VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN”, a sigh board which was there all the time while Bherri Ramsarran was the Minister of Health. How ironic!

  10. Slap And Strip A Woman?

    The allegations against Mr. Bheri Ramsaran is appalling
    (to say the least). This man did not display any semblance of courtesy, respect, or moral virtue, that is expected from an elected official, or someone seeking to be elected to Public Office.

    Therefore, I strongly advise against this miscreant, being allowed to grace the confines of our National Legislature, to represent anybody.
