Iswhar Heralall

The man who brutally chopped his estranged wife at the La Penitence Market, Iswhar Heralall, 38, of Anna Regina New Housing Scheme, Essequibo, appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts before Magistrate Judy Latchman and was placed on $600,000 bail.

It is alleged that Heralall on Sunday, July 31, 2016, at La Penitence Public Road, Ruimveldt, unlawfully and maliciously wounded Wanita Heralall with the intent to commit murder.

The prosecution did not provide any circumstantial evidence; however, a relative of the defendant told the media that the man’s wife left him with their five children for another man; and on the day in question he was asking her to return home and she embarrassed him claiming she wanted her freedom.

The unrepresented man’s mother told the court that she could not afford an attorney for the defendant.

Heralall was placed on bail with the following stipulations: he presents himself every Friday to the officer in charge at the Criminal Investigation Department, Ruimveldt Police Station and he stays away from the Virtual Complainant (VC) pending the outcome of the matter.

The carpenter by profession will make his next court appearance on August 24, 2016.

Meanwhile, the VC, who spoke to INews, related that she was recovering comfortably at the Georgetown Public Hospital.
