Lt Col James gives evidence in treason case

Guyana Defence Force Lieutenant Colonel Sydney Charles James gave his evidence-in-chief when the PI into the treason case against army Major Bruce Munroe, his wife Carol Ann Munroe and ex-soldier Leonard Wharton continued yesterday.

The preliminary inquiry (PI) is being heard by acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and will be called again on October 31.

The trio is accused of treason: the charge states that between December 1, 2009 and December 16, 2010, at Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara, they intended to level war within Guyana to force the president out of his office, in order to compel the Government of Guyana to change its measures.

Treason is not a bailable offence.
