Neesa Gopaul’s mother back behind bars – Stabroek News

-after prison service admits to faulty calculation

Bibi Sharima-Gopaul after she was taken into custody yesterday

Having been freed several months ago, the woman who was convicted of murdering her daughter, Neesa Gopaul in 2010 was back behind bars last night following a miscalculation of her sentence by the prison authorities.

After reports had circulated on Wednesday that Bebi Sharima-Gopaul had been released from jail, questions were asked of the Guyana Prison Service (GPS) about how she could have been freed since she had been sentenced to 25 years in 2015 with the stipulation that she serve 15 years before being eligible for parole.

While it had promised a statement on Wednesday explaining her release, nothing came from the GPS until yesterday when it made the embarrassing announcement that a mistake had been made.
