Dear Editor,

The Guyana Police Force is responding to an article in yesterday’s edition of the Kaieteur News under the caption ‘The police at Aurora Station need to arrest this man’.

Please be informed that the person in question, Mark Beamil c/d Tout of no fixed place of abode, was on Saturday last arrested and charged with unlawful wounding and threatening behaviour committed on George Couchman. He appeared before Magistrate Sunil Scarce at the Charity Magistrate’s court the day before yesterday and pleaded guilty to both charges, but based on his explanation, not guilty pleas were recorded by the Magistrate who remanded him to prison until December 8, 2016 for trial.

Yours faithfully,                        

Jairam Ramlakhan

Superintendent                           

Public Relations and Press Officer
