Colin Mack remains in jail
Embattled local promoter, Colin Mack, was yet again refused bail, after making a court appearance before Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
Yesterday as the preliminary inquiry continued the prosecution started to hear evidence from Superintendent of Police Aubrey Joseph.
Joseph was later cross examined by Attorney at law Glenn Hanoman. After the police witness had finished giving evidence, Hanoman again made a bail application on behalf of his client.
The lawyer stated that since the main witnesses have already given evidence, his client could now be allowed his pretrial liberty.
However Police Prosecutor Denise Griffith objected to bail stating that there has been lots of interference in the matter.
“A lot of people are trying to pervert this case.” She recalled that a man was recently charged with approaching the virtual complainant and her mother.
She also noted that the complainant’s mother still has to testify along with another police witness. The prosecutor also explained that with the perversion charges, which were brought against an investigator attached with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the virtual complainant is very fearful if Colin Mack himself is to be granted bail.
Bail was denied and Mack is expected to make another court appearance on May 20.
