Emergency room doctor testifies in Carol Ann Lynch murder inquiry

Another witness testified yesterday in the Prelim-inary Inquiry (PI) to decide whether accused Carol Ann Lynch is to stand trial for the murder of her husband Farouk Razack.

told the Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, who is presiding over the PI at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, that one of the witnesses, a policeman, was in Bartica. Another policeman scheduled to testify was present but Mangru reported that he had to uplift photographs to be tendered as evidence. Dr  Ramnauth Singh, who was expected to testify, was also absent and the prosecutor reiterated the difficulties he was having in contacting the remaining witnesses.

Lynch, a former beauty queen, was first charged in May of 2007 after Razac was found dead on the floor of their Eping Avenue, Bel Air home. Following a PI, then Magistrate Gordon Gilhuys in late December 2007 had ruled that no prima facie case was made out against her and she was subsequently discharged. However, Lynch was charged once again.

The PI continues today.
