Ramesh Dusoruth Apprehended in The Netherlands

The Bermuda Police Service (BPS) can confirm that Ramesh Dusoruth was taken into custody in The Netherlands today (July 9th), at 10am local (Netherlands) time.

An Interpol Red Notice was issued for Mr. Dusoruth – beneficial owner of St. George’s Ltd. – after he absconded from Bermuda and failed to appear before Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 21st March 2019 to face allegations involving the misuse of several million dollars of investors’ money.

The Office of the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has been informed and the BPS is commencing the process of liaising with the relevant Dutch authorities, in relation to the matters for which Mr. Dusoruth is wanted in Bermuda.

Acting Detective Superintendent Nicholas Pedro (Crime Division) stated – “The arrest of Ramesh Dusoruth in The Netherlands today demonstrates the breadth of BPS international partnerships with key stakeholders – Interpol and Dutch authorities – in tracking down and bringing perpetrators who indulge in criminality in Bermuda to justice. In today’s world of transnational organised crime, the ability for law enforcement to cooperate globally sends a clear message that one cannot easily hide from justice and accountability.”

All incidents are under investigation. Police are appealing to members of the public who have witnessed these incidents or may have information pertaining to them to contact their respective Police Station, Police Headquarters at 295-0011 or the confidential Crimestoppers Hotline on 1 (800) 623-8477.
