Ten witnesses are slated to testify in the trial related to the December 26, 2014 murder of 39-year-old miner Sunil Ramsundar, which is set to commence at the Demerara High Court. A 12-member jury was on Tuesday empanelled before Justice Sandhill Kissoon at the opening of the June Criminal Assizes in Demerara.Nyron ThakurdyalVishawantie RagnauthThe accused, Vishawantie Ragnauth and Nyron Thakurdyal both denied the murder indictment presented by State Prosecutors Lisa Cave and Orinthia Schmidt. On that fateful Boxing Night, at Patentia, West Bank Demerara, Ramsundar was killed after he allegedly attempted to settle a dispute between his sister, niece and his niece’s reputed husband.According to Police reports in 2014, the incident occurred at about 22:00h where it was alleged that Sunil Ramsundar’s sister was reportedly being assaulted by her daughter Vishawantie and Vishawantie’s reputed husband Thakurdyal.At that time, reports stated that the now deceased man enquired from his sister why she was crying, and upon learning that the couple had physically assaulted her, the man approached his niece for an explanation. However, this reportedly turned into a heated argument, during which Ramsundar was stabbed about his body. He collapsed on the spot and was pronounced dead on arrival to the West Demerara Regional Hospital.The duo is being represented by Attorney Nigel Hughes.
Dunfanaghy Golf Club Notes:Hi Everyone, Well what a great weekend. The club was the place to be last weekend with the Ryder Cup Celebrations.It was easy to see the amount of planning the committees put in to make sure the weekend was a great success. Nothing was left to chance and everyone had a most memorable weekend in the club. A special word of thanks to the Ryder Cup Committee comprising of Captain Gerald, Lady Captain Cheryl, Vice Captain Vaughan, Vice Lady Captain Mabel, Cairns Witherow, Bill and Paula Mc Callion and Jim Conway. The club would especially like to thank our sponsor for the weekend “Smiley Monroe”. The weekend would not have been possible without the support that Vaughan’s company gave the club over the weekend. A special word of thanks to Nicola who assisted with every last detail regarding the functions in the Clubhouse and Marque over the weekend. Jim Conway and his company was responsible for the marketing of this weekend and it was easy to see what a great job he did, with the large crowds who came to the clubhouse over the weekend. The atmosphere around the club was brilliant all weekend.We started on Friday night with a sing along with Bill Mc Callion and other guests. The night was very enjoyable with a large crowd in the clubhouse. Then on Saturday we had a four person team event split into 2 shotgun starts and everything went according to the plan. Paul McGinley led his team to victory this weekend and our own Captain Gerald also led his team to victory with a great score of 99. It was a fitting victory for all the work he has put into this weekend and indeed all year and made all the sweeter that he was accompanied by his father Michael on his team. Well done on the golf and the weekend. The golfers enjoyed the hog roast in the marque after the golf. Saturday night we had entertainment by Ards Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann Group and then later that night we were entertained by Copperhead in the Marque. There was a large crowd in the clubhouse and Marque all day Saturday. Well done to all the prize winners. Then on Sunday we had the three ball scramble and again the golf course was full. Everyone enjoyed a meal afterwards while watching the conclusion to the Ryder Cup. Well done to Paul Mc Ginley and the European team. It was easy to see that his leadership qualities were a major factor in the Ryder Cup being retained by the European Team. We hope to see Paul and the Ryder Cup in Dunfanaghy in the near future.There is a sheet up on the notice board and any person interested in playing in the Gaeltacht League team this year needs to put their name and contact details on the sheet to be included in team selection as soon as possible.We have the Past Captain’s competition and meal on Saturday 4th of October 2014 Can all past Captains please make contact with Mary and Ruth in the clubhouse as soon as possible to include your name on the timesheet for the day if you are hoping to play golf or join the Captain for the meal afterwards.
