Munroe treason PI to be called again on January 5

When the preliminary inquiry (PI) into the treason matter against Guyana Defence Force Major Bruce Munroe, his wife Carol Ann Munroe and ex-soldier Leonard Wharton continued yesterday, Lieutenant Colonel Sydney James took the stand and continued his evidence led by Director of Public Prosecutions Shalimar Ali-Hack.

The PI is being heard by acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and will be called again on January 5.

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 a capital offence and is not bailable.
