Tilaknauth Mohabir

A teenager was yesterday remanded after he was charged with the murder of Tilaknauth Mohabir, one of the fishermen killed in the horrific April 27 piracy attack off of Suriname.

Nineteen-year-old Alexander Denheart, stood in the courtroom of acting Chief Magistrate Sherdel Isaacs-Marcus, who read the murder charge to him.

The charge against the accused stated that between April 27 and May 3, at sea, he murdered Tilaknauth Mohabir, also known as “Kaiman”, on board a vessel under attack, in the course/furtherance of a robbery.

Denhart was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge.

Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield stated that the file in relation to the matter is incomplete.

The accused was later remanded to prison and the matter adjourned to June 13 at the Springlands Magistrate’s Court.

On May 30, Nakool Manohar, also known as “Fyah” was taken before the Springlands Magistrate’s Court where he was charged with the said crime.

At the time of his murder, Mohabir was on fishing vessel “Romina SK 747” in the Corentyne waters.

The attack left about 12 Guyanese fishers missing and now presumed dead.

After the attack, the decomposed body of Mohabir was discovered in Surinamese waters during an extensive search.
