Freed treason accused Mark Benschop, Norris Witter of the Guyana Public Service Union (GPSU), and General Secretary of the Guyana Trades Union Congress (GTUC) Lincoln Lewis, were yesterday arrested for disorderly behaviour and resisting arrest during an illegal protest outside the office of the Commissioner of Police, Eve Leary.

The men’s personal articles handed over by the police to a media representative.

The trio was yesterday hauled off to the Brickdam Police Station where they were processed and placed in the lock-ups.

Their lawyer, Khemraj Ramjattan showed up after their detention, pleaded on their behalf and said that bail was expected at 3pm yesterday.
However, up to press time, the men were still in police custody.
The three men were holding a three-man protest outside Henry Greene’s office during the Police Awards ceremony.

There, one of the three men ended up in a trench and was eventually pulled out and taken away to the police station.
