DEAD: Lelawattie Mohamed

THREE men were, on Tuesday, freed of the murder of Lelawattie Mohamed who was gunned down at her Sixth Street, Tain Settlement home, in 2017.
Oliver Permaul, a 34-year-old barber; 26-year-old Andre James called “Tatoo man”, of Lot 46 George Street, Rose Hall; Rohan Johnson, called “Jamaky” a 39-year-old carpenter and Jamaican national, were freed by Justice Jo-Ann Barlow at the Berbice High Court. The judge upheld no case submissions made by attorneys-at-law Ravindra Mohabir, Tanya Warren-Clements and Sasha Roberts on the grounds of insufficient evidence. Justice Barlow then directed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty.
In 2017, the three men were charged jointly along with Permaul’s wife, Shabikie Albert, and Nazeema Permaul for Mohamed’s murder. However, Albert and Nazeema were later freed due to insufficient evidence. It is alleged that on February 7, 2017, two men stormed into the woman’s home and executed her in the presence of her son and daughter. They shot her in the throat at point blank range under the guise of a robbery. According to reports, Mohamed was having an affair with Permaul. His wife after reportedly learning of the relationship, ordered a “hit” on the woman. Johnson and James were allegedly paid $4M to kill her.
