RAJEN Dindial, called ‘Eric’, who is currently serving a 15-year sentence

for fatally beating another man, has moved to the Court of Appeal to challenge his conviction and sentence.

In 2019, Dindial, formerly of Section ‘C’ Block Y, Golden Grove, East Bank Demerara (EBD), was on trial before Justice Jo-Ann Barlow and a 12-member jury at the Demerara High Court for the capital offence of murder committed on Aliston Henry. Henry was beaten to death at a ‘wedding house’ at Grove, in 2017.

However, the jury found Dindial guilty of the lesser count of manslaughter.

Dissatisfied, Dindial subsequently moved to the Court of Appeal to challenge the conviction and the sentence imposed by Justice Barlow. He is claiming that his trial was unfair and the sentence imposed by the judge cannot stand. .

According to reports, on September 3, 2017, at Sarran Street, Grove, East Bank Demerara, while at the wedding celebration, Henry had a misunderstanding with Dindial and pushed down a portable toilet which was nearby.

Consequently, Dindial became annoyed and dealt Henry several lashes with a wooden paddle.

The injured Henry was then taken home by public-spirited citizens and, subsequently, to the Diamond Diagnostic Centre, where he succumbed to his injuries several days later.
