Boat captain charged with manslaughter

GEORGETOWN – Police in Guyana have charged a boat captain with manslaughter following a collision in December that killed six people.

Hytilall Ramamdahin appeared yesterday in court but did not enter a plea.

He was released on $3,000 bail and ordered to return to court on February 18.

Ramamdahin was captain of a boat that crashed into another on a river bordering Venezuela.

The charges against him come two weeks after another boat collision in which five people died and four remain missing.

No one has been charged in that case. That collision occurred about 25 miles upstream from the southwestern mining town of Bartica.(AP)
