[www.inewsguyana.com] – Crime Chief Seelall Persaud has revealed that no information has been forthcoming from the Venezuelan authorities as it relates to the execution of two men in the neighbouring country.
“We requested information via Interpol, haven’t gotten any feedback as yet. We don’t have an official position from the Venezuelans,” Persaud told reporters.
Reports indicate that on Thursday October 3, Orlando Fitzpatrick, 52, and his son, 17-year-old Jesse, were shot dead while they were returning to Guyana from their mining operation at Tocopita on the Venezuelan side of the border.
It is being alleged that the father and son were executed by men dressed in full Venezuelan solider attire.
The two were said to have also been robbed of their earnings by the Spanish-speaking “soldiers.”
