Probe launched into ‘suspicious’ death of overseas-based Guyanese in Berbice

The relatives of an overseas-based Guyanese who died in Berbice earlier this month, have called on the police to launch an investigation into his death as they claim that before he succumbed, he had told his siblings that he was beaten.
