Son of Prime Minister before court on unlawful wounding charge
The son of Prime Minister Samuel Hinds was today placed on $150,000 bail for unlawful wounding and threatening behavior. He appeared in the Georgetown magistrates court before magistrate Geeta Edmond. Samuel Hinds junior reportedly inflicted the injuries on his sister law Tenzil Lane at a rented apartment in Duke Street Kingston on February 27th.
In objecting to bail the police prosecutor told the court that Hinds threatened to kill his sister law like a thief, and he abuse her physically. The police are also reporting that Hind grabbed the woman and stamped her in the face. The prosecutor said that Hinds then brandished his licensed firearm and threatened to kill the woman. Represented by attorney at Law Charles Ramson junior in his bail application Hinds told the court that his client and the woman had an argument and she attacked him with a knife. He admitted that his client pulled his weapon but never cranked it. He told the court that Hinds 33 was a former Queen Collage student and a gold miner and the son of a prominent official of Guyana.
The magistrate granted bail on the grounds that Hinds lodge his passport and weapon and stay away from the victim.
The trail is expected to commence later this month.
