Assistant Superintendent of Police Trevor Reid completed his evidence in chief when the Preliminary Inquiry continued yesterday into the treason charge against Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Major Bruce Munroe, his wife Carol Ann Munroe and ex-soldier Leonard Wharton who are accused of treason.
After the prosecution witness concluded his evidence he was cross-examined by defence counsel Attorney-at- law Nigel Hughes. The matter is being prosecuted by state-appointed prosecutor Vic Puran.
The trio is accused of treason: the charge states that between December 1, 2009 and December 16, 2010, at Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara, they plotted 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.
The PI is being heard by acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
The matter will be called again today.
