Fresh allegations surfaced yesterday against embattled former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Alliance for Change (AFC) party, Peter Ramsaroop with claims by his eldest son, Shawn, that his father has a history of infidelity.
The younger Ramsaroop, in a statement to the press yesterday, is urging the police not to believe a word his father says as he has over the years been involved in incidents where he’s been accused of luring young girls into his bed for money.
In an email seen by this newspaper, Shawn says that though his father neglected him at the age of six, he has always regarded him as a well-respected and wealthy man, but soon came to realise who he truly was over the years.
According to the statement made by the youngster, his father was forced to return to Guyana from the US after tarnishing his reputation there. Shawn says that in addition to being married but divorced three times because of his adulterous behaviour.
According to Shawn, though Ramsaroop has four children, including a daughter, he’s never once mentioned them in any of the many books and speeches he’s written about putting family first. Two of them, he says, live in near penury in the US, struggling to survive on their own.
He said he came to Guyana for the first time last year, and that was how he was able to witness firsthand how his father would lavish his money on unsuspecting young girls, only to bring them home and seduce them into his bed every night.
Shawn says that it was while spending time with his father that he learnt of his plan to set fire to his own business, which was insured, because it was not yielding significant profits.
He’d even threatened him once to file claims against his fiancée’s visa, the younger Ramsaroop said, adding that while he is not sure whether the recent allegations against his father are true, he knows for sure that he cannot be trusted.
Meanwhile, the Chronicle has learnt that the police has so far come up empty handed in its search for evidence from the hard drives from the computers seized from Ramsaroop’s premises last week.
A police source said however that they may have erred by overlooking locations outside of Ramsaroop’s apartment and office where video files may well have been stored.
Said source added that it was a bad move on the part of the Guyana Police Force (GPF) not to seek expert and international assistance in tracking videos and offsite storage location services to see if Ramsaroop had made any recordings.
The embattled wannabe politician was arrested last week and questioned after he was accused of spying on a teenage girl in an apartment he rented her in the city.
Three hidden cameras were discovered in the apartment of 19-year-old Nicole Ming and Ramsaroop has since confirmed that he knew about the cameras but claimed they were not active.
