[www.inewsguyana.com] – Johnny Welshman this morning attempted suicide by consuming bleach; all in an effort for “justice to be served.”
Welshman is the young man who accused Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman of sexually abusing him when he was a child.
iNews understands that the Police were summoned to his Albertown apartment after he reportedly drank bleach and was threatening to ingest a poisonous substance. He was taken to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation and is in police custody for attempting suicide.
Welshman, in his Facebook post this morning, stated: “the police came and ransack my apartment and took me in police custody…that’s Guyana justice…I am at Georgetown hospital in police custody.”
Several different pills and a poisonous liquid were found in his apartment. iNews understands that he alert when the officers got there and reportedly told investigators that he drank bleach and wanted to commit suicide.
Welshman also reportedly told investigators that he was encouraged to attempt suicide as a way of “getting back at the Speaker and keeping attention on the matter”.
The young threatened to take his own life since yesterday after Chief Justice, Ian Chang upheld his decision preventing Welshman from speaking or posting any information on his Facebook page about the sexual allegations.
One of his Facebook posts yesterday noted: “I can’t take it anymore I wanted justice and I am the one that is constantly harass on the road etc…Well live with yourself at my death…I know I will be in hell cause I committed suicide but I rather Die than to continue living in pain… Seems you have to die before people take you seriously.”
After the CJ’s ruling, Welshman sped out of the CJ’s chambers and shared his frustration and disbelief over the decision.
“Same nonsense, pure politics… I was given an undertaken that I cannot say anything on my social media… Guyana has no blasted cyber laws!”
The Speaker has since filed a $50 Million lawsuit against Welshman.
if u kill ur self u wouldnt b miss an why wait all these years to come forward with dis or is it because election time is coming…….i dont even no why d hell i even wanna comment on dis matter…stewwww guyana an dem bullshit story……
Agreed on the part u said the speaker wont get hurt by these accusations… Maybe cause he has nigel hughes and pcn… Maybe cause people seem not to believe him, or to simply dont bother to investigate. I understand the boys frustration. He had ONE way. Of being noticed, to get people to hear him. That was taken away from him. I wanna know if he launches a blog and put on facebook; HEY FRIENDS, I NOW HAVE A BLOG, if they will come after him again. Why he cant say what happened to him? Because we arent sure if it happened? Why trotman dont go to court to answer the boy instead of shutting him down before he has a chance. And if he is proven innocent, he then sue the boy for difamation, something is wrong there….
I am surprised mr racist hughes is against a black boy who said he was sexually mollested by a red man… At the same time he is defending and feeding an untrue story of a criminal who was allegedly mollested with a police batton… My mind can’t follow these people agenda. Honestly.
But disagree that if he kills himself the justice system would even care… Don’t you see that no one cares? No one allows the boy to talk. The criminal who had sex with a batton gave inumerous interviews (there is no evidence PLUS there are recordings where his friend confesses that he came up with all the lies) and nothing happened to him? This boy should’ve push something into his ass to be taken seriously????
I will agree with you on this, why is it taking so long for this kid to get any kind of answers, lets put it this way if he is telling the truth well GOD will judge, justice is very poor for some of us and its not going to change until somebody seek they own, the courts work for the rich not the poor, SAD he is in this state
DON’T EVEN THINK OF THAT MY FRIEND. YOUR ABUSER WILL THEN GET OFF AND BE GLAD. FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AND YOU WILL SUCCEED IN THE END. TAKE HEART IN THE FACT THAT MANY PEOPLE SUPPORT YOU IN YOUR BATTLE FOR JUSTICE.
if this guy kill himself . the justice system will have lots of blood on its hands..this guy from day one knew like manyothers that he will never get the justice hes seeking..all because of the status of the accused…he is big..he is bigger than big with all his pnc buddied firmly behind him..nigel hughes will work his lawyer majic to make things disappear in court..
