A 40-year-old Grove resident had the misfortune of doing something that the law enforcement officers interpreted to be obeah. Alan Kissoon, of 28 Grove Public Road, East Bank Demerara, had the charge read to him by acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson on Thursday.
It is alleged that on January 27, 2009, the defendant was caught practising obeah at the Providence Magistrate’s Court. He pleaded not guilty to the charge.
In his defence, the accused told the court that since he had to attend court at Providence for a previous matter that alleged that he received stolen narcotics, he usually goes to court early in the morning.
According to the prosecution, on the day in question, the defendant was seen at around 6:37 hours at the back entrance of the court, sprinkling some liquid.
He was later caught and arrested by the police, who then charged him.
“Your Worship, I went to court and all I get is lock-up. I felt shame and they start for laugh.
Is three days now I in the lock-up; me nah bath, me nah even brush me teeth, me nah do no obeah.”
The accused was placed on $10,000 bail and ordered to return to court on February 18.
