Terrath Persaud should have been hung. It’s what he did to Anna.
On May 5, the Court of Appeals of Barbados (in the new High Court building) will hear the appeal of Teerath Persaud for the length of his sentence for manslaughter of Anna Druzhinina. It took family friend, Amy Beam two years (and a new Registrar of the Court) to obtain the transcripts from the trials of the two murderers (McCollin and Persaud) of Anna Druzhinina; a popular and loved 16-year-old Russian girl who lived in Barbados and was hanged in her home November 8, 2008.
Appeals are heard by 3 judges, including the Chief Justice. Court opens at 9AM and is open to the public. Beam wrote about the murder of her friend, Anna Druzhinina, in 2013, after the manslaughter trial of Teerath Persaud was completed and he was sentenced to 21 years of which he has now served six-and-a-half years.
Counting one year as actually only 9 months for “good behavior,” Persaud could be eligible for release in under 10 years.
