Peace advocate on gun charge

Cecily Asson Sunday, January 8 2017

Well-known community activist and religious leader Imam Mourland Lynch, 53, will re-appear before a magistrate in the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court tomorrow charged with possession of an illegal firearm.

The imam who heads the Enterprise Mosque in the troubled Enterprise community was remanded in custody on Friday for tracing following his appearance before Magistrate Margaret Alert in the Chaguanas Magistrate’s Court. Lynch was jointly charged with Andy Doolamsingh, 25, a security guard of Charlieville for possession of a 9 mm pistol and ten rounds of 9 mm ammunition.

Both men were arrested on Tuesday after police officers stopped and searched the vehicle in which they were seated and discovered the loaded pistol.

Both men were represented in court by attorney Shiva Boodoo.

In July 2015, one of Lynch’s son Akmal, 22, a security guard was shot and killed while on duty at a construction site in Chaguanas.

Another son Aquiy, 27, who was also on duty was seriously wounded in the attack.

And last year May, Ryan “Daewoo” Hercules, 39, who provided personal protection for Lynch, and also protected the Enterprise Mosque, was shot and killed at Crown Trace, Enterprise.

Hercules had only moved into the area three months to work as security for Lynch when he met his death.

Lynch has been an advocate for peace in the warring Enterprise community.
