Nine fishermen have been convicted in Suriname for the fatal piracy attack in April last year in which over a dozen Guyanese fishermen were killed off the coast of the neighbouring country.

Three persons were acquitted of the crime after the judge ruled that there was no evidence to convict them.


It was reported in the Times of Suriname, that seven Guyanese fishermen: Chris Parasram, Rameshwaru Roepnarain, Mandre Kishoor, David Williams, Ramdeo Persaud, Ray Torres and Ganesh Beharry, were all sentenced to 35 years imprisonment each. While Feroz Bkish was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment and Terry Durga was sentenced to five years imprisonment.
