The start of the case for murder accused Marcus Bisram, who was recently extradited from the US, has been pushed back.
Bisram was back in Court today but the Magistrate who should have been hearing the matter reported sick.
Bisram was moved across to the New Amsterdam Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Peter Hugh but the Prosecutor was not present at that Court forcing the Magistrate to set a new date for the start of the case.
Bisram’s Attorney is not pleased with the development and is threatening to move to the High Court in an effort to get bail for his client.
He said there appear to be some delaying tactics on behalf of the Prosecution.
At the previous Court appearance, the Prosecutor was asked to file statements in relation to the matter. Those statements have reportedly not been filed as yet and the absence of the presiding Magistrate further complicated that process today.
Marcus Bisram is facing a murder charge related to the death of carpenter Faiyaz Narinedatt, who was badly beaten to death after reportedly turning down sexual advances by Bisram. A number of other persons have been charged in connection with the same murder. Bisram is believed to have been the one who ordered the murder.
The matter will now come up for hearing on the 16th December as Bisram remains behind bars.
