The Murders of Boysie Singh
Robber, arsonist, pirate, mass-murderer,
vice and gambling king of Trinidad
By Derek Bickerton
The Murders of Boysie Singh, first published in 1962, is a classic for several reasons. It tells the true but almost unbelievable story of a Trinidadian badjohn who in the 1940s and 1950s was a much reported celebrity of the criminal and legal world. Believed to have committed scores of murders in his guise as a pirate who dumped would-be migrants from Trinidad to Venezuela overboard to the sharks, he was hanged for just one proven crime, a murder he in fact may not have done, and for which no body was found. The story that Derek Bickerton tells is a classic because it both focuses on themes that remain pertinent to Trinidadian culture and reminds the reader that current alarms about crime and an escalating murder rate are very far from new.

are weakened by the diversity of national sentencing rules and a
thorough analysis of corporate sentencing is lacking both at the
level of the EU and in most national systems.
