Two more charged in connection with Stockfarm kidnapping

first_imgLocalNews Two more charged in connection with Stockfarm kidnapping by: – March 20, 2012 Desmond Phillip of Yampiece and Shirley Allan of Stockfarm were on Tuesday jointly charged for “unlawfully seizing and kidnapping” Leon ‘Dopie’ Joseph of Stockfarm on March 10th, 2012.Police prosecutor Claude Weekes objected to bail on the grounds that the Joseph had not been found and the police required more time to investigate.Weekes told the Court that the police department “suspects” that firearms and ammunition were allegedly used to commit the offence and these have not been recovered either.He said other persons are also being “sought for the alleged kidnapping”.Weeks further asked magistrate Candia Carette-George to “consider the nature of the offence” and uphold his objection to bail. Phillip who is represented by Peter Alleyne pleaded with the magistrate as his Alleyne was engaged in another matter at the time. He sobbed openly in Court explaining his innocence.“I have a little boy and is me that is his mother and father. I didn’t hold nobody. Look at my record; I haven’t been in problem for years. Ask my pastor, I always in church”.Meanwhile Gina Dyer- Monroe who represented Zeena Moore-Dyer for the other defendant, Shirley Allan requested that bail be granted to her client since she had “cooperated fully with the police and has no previous convictions”.She further submitted to the Court that her client should be released on bail and that strict measures be imposed as part of her bail conditions.Magistrate Carette-George denied bail to both of the defendants based on the “nature of the offence and in an effort to give the police sufficient time to conduct their investigation”.She further cautioned the defendants to “cooperate” with the police in providing whatever information they may have pertinent to the incident.The defendants have been remanded at the State Prison in Stockfarm.On Monday March 19th, Jan Bedminster, Kimon Beaupierre and Dilon Alexander were charged with kidnapping Deon Hakim Alfred the other Stockfarm resident who was reported missing by relatives on the same day as Leon Joseph.Neither Alfred nor Joseph has been found.Dominica Vibes News Share 21 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring!center_img Share Tweet Sharelast_img read more

Win satisfies Martinez

first_img He added: “We are very unusual with the amount of internationals we have and to have 13 players leaving the club makes things very difficult from a physical point of view. “And because of that reason we couldn’t be our normal selves in possession. I don’t think we were stylish as we normally are, but what we showed is an incredible character. Every player found a way to help the team to keep Norwich very quiet.” It was a sixth goal in six games for Kone, but Norwich boss Chris Hughton felt they shot themselves in the foot after Wes Hoolahan gave the ball away in midfield, while Lee Camp might have done better at his near post. “With us having been so solid, I couldn’t see that goal happening,” said Hughton. “For me, it’s a soft goal. We lost the ball in the middle of the park and one good strike saw them get the goal they needed.” Hughton was frustrated his side ended up with nothing, saying: “When you go away from home sometimes you have to hold your hand up if you’ve been beaten and beaten well but I don’t think anybody seeing the game today would think that. “We certainly deserved a draw and then it’s just going to be about those moments. They had it and we didn’t. “But I thought for an away team we had good periods of the game where we had good control but it’s one moment that’s beaten us. It’s very disappointing.” Arouna Kone grabbed the only goal of the game in the 81st minute to secure two notable firsts, with Wigan managing their first ever league win over Norwich and also their first success of the season following an international break. Martinez said: “Before the game I knew it was going to be a really tricky fixture. First because we’ve never managed to win a game after an international break.” Wigan boss Roberto Martinez declared Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Norwich their most pleasing display of the season.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
