An outspoken overseas based Guyanese, Mr. Rickford Burke, who has long been at loggerheads with Guyana’s ruling PPP/C administration, has been served defendant summons according to the Guyana Police Force, for a series of offenses ranging from cyber crimes to fraud.

The Neesa Gopaul Murder Case – the Crime that Shook the Nation

The Neesa Gopaul murder case is doubtless one of the most horrific, brutal, and chilling crimes in Guyanese history. Imagine being heartlessly attacked by the very person whose God-given duty is to love and protect you. Imagine a group of vacationers looking for a fun time out but ending up finding a human corpse stuffed in a suitcase at Madewini Creek along the Linden-Soesdyke Highway, and imagine a woman, with the help of her partner, stuffing her daughter’s lifeless body into a suitcase and then dumping it into a remote creek with dumbbells tied to it so that it wouldn’t resurface. These are some of the elements that compose the Neesa Gopaul murder case – a brutal crime which sent shockwaves throughout the nation of Guyana, South America.
