Family of Denilson Rose protests over road death probe

Relatives and friends of Denilson Rose (inset), 17, of Linden gathered yesterday outside of the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) at Eve Leary to protest the absence of a charge in his death in a road crash.

Rose was knocked down allegedly by a member of the Guyana Police Force on October 24th and family members are pleading for justice as no one has been charged. They said yesterday that when they enquire about the case they are usually met with unclear answers.

Speaking to Stabroek News last week, Elaine Rose, the mother of the deceased, said her son had left the previous day to attend the Mackenzie High School’s sports. The woman, who is a police officer, went to work and returned home around 11.15 pm the same day but did not find her son at home. She said she did not worry since it is customary that he would be out late.

her that he was lying in a pool of blood on Washer Pond Road. She added that she immediately rushed to the scene, where she saw his body.

A post-mortem examination performed on the body of the lad had revealed he died as a result of multiple injuries sustained.

Contacted last week for a comment on the matter, Traffic Chief Deon Moore said that the case file was sent to the Chambers of the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
