Regent Multiplex owner’s murder inquiry adjourned until May 9

The continuation of the preliminary inquiry into the murder charge against the three men charged with murdering Ganesh Ramlall, the former Regent Multiplex owner who was gunned down in 2015, was adjourned yesterday following the absence of Special Prosecutor Nigel Hughes.

When the matter was called in the Leonora Magistrate’s Court, Magistrate Rochelle Liverpool informed the accused men, Lennox Roberts, of Tuschen Housing Scheme, East Bank Essequibo; Fazeel Bacchus, of Anna Catherina, West Coast Demerara; and Kurt Erskine, of Golden Grove, East Bank Demerara, that the next hearing would be on May 9.

She told the accused that Hughes, in a letter, explained that he was unable to make his appearance due to matters at the High Court.

On July 5, 2015, Ramlall was shot multiple times, including once to his head, near his home in an apparent robbery, in which his licensed firearm, jewellery and wallet were stolen.
