‘Boyo’ retrial underway

The re-trial of Satnanand Sahadeo, called ‘Boyo,’ continued yesterday before Justice William Ramlal in the High Court.

Sahadeo is accused of killing Dental Technician Vishnu Santie on January 22, 2005. A post-mortem examination performed by Pathologist Nehaul Singh revealed that the man died of haemorrhage and shock due to several gunshot wounds.

The state’s case is being presented by Natasha Backer while Sahadeo is represented by attorney’s Peter Hugh and Latchmie Rahamat.

In her opening address on Monday, Backer had told the court that Santie was attacked by a gang of robbers and was shot to death.

Another person, Peter Ray Kassim called ‘Donkey’ was also charged with the murder, but he was released during the previous trial after it was found that there was not sufficient evidence and his lawyer made a no-case submission which was upheld by Justice Franklin Holder.

The trial continues today.
