Colin Mack still remanded

April 28, 2009 | By | Filed Under News 

Promoter Colin Mack was again remanded after he made another court appearance before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson yesterday at the Georgetown Magistrates Court of the continuation of his preliminary inquiry.
As the preliminary inquiry continued yesterday the virtual complainant continued to give her account of what transpired on the night of the alleged assault.

The prosecution had stated that Mack could not have been given his pretrial liberty for fear that he might have hampered the victim who had not finished testifying.
But Mack’s lawyer stated that the VC had already given the most pivotal part of her testimony and as such Mack should be admitted to his pretrial liberty.

The lawyer tried his best to reassure the court that Mack was not going to interfere with the victim while on bail, but Magistrate Robertson nevertheless denied bail.
Colin Mack is accused of having sex with a 19-year-old without her consent on April 12, last.
According to police the victim, in a statement, said that she was held against her will for several hours at a Festival City house. The teen said that she shouted for help, but no one came to her rescue even though the houses were within hearing distance.
She managed to escape after she hung her naked body through a window until a taxi driver came to her rescue.
Mack is expected to return to court on April 30.
