Guyana Police receive reports of death threats against mom of alleged Masjid abuse victims
Police have received reports that the mother of four of the boys in the sex-abuse case involving a Muslin scholar has received threats to her life.
The woman, who lives in a depressed community, has alleged that she was threatened yesterday by two members of the Turkeyen Masjid that has come under unwelcome scrutiny in the wake of a string of sexual abuse allegations that have been leveled against a senior member.
Kaieteur News understands that the woman has told police that she had just exited a bus near the Masjid at around 19:00 hrs yesterday when the two men approached her.
According to the woman’s statement, one of the men told her “yuh judgment gun red.”
She was reportedly also told that “my body gun drop and he will chop off my second son’s head.”
She subsequently made a report at the Turkeyen Police Station.
Kaieteur News understands that the ranks contacted the Sparendaam Police with a view of arresting the men, but were told that no vehicle was available at the time.
