The man accused of kidnapping a Penal
mother of two has been sent to St Ann s
Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after
claiming he has visions of soucouyants,
lagahoos and ghosts.
Truck driver Manickchand Bisram, 44,
was remanded yesterday to St Ann s when
he appeared before Siparia First Court
magistrate Taramattie Ramdass on three
indictable charges, including a sexual
offence arising out of the alleged kidnap-
The woman, who is said to be in her
late 20s, was allegedly snatched from her
home on Monday and stuffed into a car
She reportedly jumped from the trunk
of the moving car to escape. She was helped
by employees of Seebalack s Hardware, off
Rochard Road, Penal, who contacted the
police and ambulance services.
Yesterday when Bisram, dressed in a
dirty T-shirt and cream three-quarter cargo
pants, appeared in court he stared blankly
ahead while the magistrate read the charges.
His elderly mother was the only member
of the public allowed into the courtroom
for the hearing.
Defence attorney Ramnarine Soorjans-
ingh pleaded with Ramdass to send him
for evaluation. He said Bisram was expe-
"He has been seeing visions of lagahoos
and soucouyants. He needs evaluation. He
is seeing big things in front of him, near
him and he said people can t see it. He
needs to be evaluated," Soorjansingh said.
Ramdass, looked at the attorney and
asked: "He is seeing what?"
"He is seeing all sorts of visions, enemies,
phantoms, ghosts," Soorjansingh answered.
The magistrate looked at Bisram and
Soorjansingh said Bisram was involved
in a common-law relationship and has no
children. He said he was not in a relation-
ship with the victim.
Ramdass asked police prosecutor Sgt
Sheldon Ablacksingh about the condition
of the victim.
He said she was treated at hospital and
discharged. He said she did not attend
Soorjansingh said his client had no con-
victions or pending matters. However,
Ramdass asked the attorney to explain a
1998 motor vehicle larceny and robbery
with violence charge listed on Bisram s
criminal record trace.
The attorney said Bisram instructed him
that those matters were dismissed.
Ablacksingh said he would need some
time to verify if the matters were dis-

He was not called upon to plead as all
three charges were laid indictably by
PC Nanan. Bisram will reappear in
court on March 12.
Moments after being denied bail, attempted
murder accused Akeem Williams collapsed in
the San Fernando Magistrates Court yesterday
and had to be taken for medical treatment yes-
Williams, 32, of Marabella, who is nursing
gunshot wounds to his chest and leg, appeared
before Deputy Chief Magistrate Mark Wellington
in the San Fernando First Court.
He was scheduled to appear on Wednesday
but was instead taken for a medical check-up
after complaining of feeling unwell.
When he appeared yesterday, Wellington read
the charge that on January 21, 2014, Williams
attempted to murder Andy Bramble, at Bayshore,
Bramble, 31, also of Marabella, was chopped,
during an altercation. Williams was not called
upon to plead as the charge was laid indictably
by Cpl David.
Williams sisters---Kay Greene, 27, a mother
of five, and Nandy Williams, 29, the mother of
two---are also jointly charged with the same
offence. The three first appeared in court last
month. They will reappear in court on March 6.
Yesterday, Williams attorney, Michael Per-
sadsingh, informed the magistrate his client was
suffering from gunshot injuries. He also informed
the court he was arrested on a warrant.
Police prosecutor attorney Cleon Seedan con-
firmed Williams arrest and informed Wellington
the two women were also charged in the mat-
ter.Wellington was also told Williams had two
pending matters, one for robbery with violence
and another for malicious wounding.
On those grounds Williams was denied bail.
Upon hearing this, Williams, the lone prisoner
in the courtroom dock at the time, collapsed and
was heard gasping for air and sobbing.
Two police officers who were in the prisoners
dock went to his aid.
The Emergency Health Services (EHS) ambu-
lance was contacted.
Williams, surrounded by heavily-armed police
officers, was placed on a stretcher and taken to
the ambulance. He was treated at the San Fer-
nando General Hospital and later discharged.
