Success murder accused not guilty, jury finds
Murder accused Arif Mohammed was yesterday found not guilty by a jury in the High Court—a day after his father was acquitted of the same charge.
It took just two hours of deliberation for the 12-member jury to return the unanimous verdict of not guilty against Mohammed. He ran out of the court immediately after Justice Navindra Singh told him he was free to go. Justice Singh also told him that he believes that he is a lucky man and hoped he has a chance to live a good life.
Latiff and Arif Mohammed were on trial for the murder of Jairam Balgobin, who they allegedly killed on March 4, 2008, at Success, East Coast Demerara.
