Public continues to express outrage over dismissal of charges

rondeyAs the public outcry continues following the shocking dismissal of the case involving the water street businessman Rondy Jagdeo who is accused of murdering biker Kurt Davis and the way he hurriedly left the court.

While businessman Rondy Jagdeo remains a free man this evening the ministry of home affairs is paying keen interest in the matter.

The witnesses failing to show up in court during the preliminary inquiry was the basis for the chief magistrate dismissing the case.

Since then there has been a public outcry by citizens who lashed out at the police for doing very little to protect witnesses that were expected to give evidence in the matter.

To the police defence crime chief Seelall Persaud said the magistrate could issue warrants and the police can execute those warrants.

During her ruling chief magistrate Priya Beharry said that warrants were issued for the witnesses to attend court.

What was troubling to many is the apparent knowledge that the businessman had that he would be set free. While the court was in session his CBR motor -cycle was parked waiting for the businessman’s expected release. He calmly walked to the motor-cycle and rode away.

Some 6 months ago the police fingered the businessman for allegedly killing his close friend and biker Kurt Davis. Davis was shot some 16 times at close range on September 4th 2013 in front of his home. The defense headed by attorney at law Mark Waldron in association with Roger Haywood made a no case submission sating that the prosecution did not prove who inflicted the injuries. The magistrate upheld the no case submission and discharged the matter.
