May 22, 2013 News Comments Off on “Sex worker”, two neighbours remanded for robbery under arms
An almost inconsolable woman sought the mercy of the court yesterday as she tearfully explained “your worship I am a single mother and is just me alone with my two kids. I does have sex and do my li’l work with men, but I swear, oh gosh, I swear to you, when these two men get rob I had nothing to do with it ‘cause all three ah we de having sex.”
She was among three defendants who were brought before Magistrate Judy Latchman at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, to face the charge of robbery under arms.
The charge stated that on May 19, on South Road in Georgetown, Samantha Primo, Sean Williams and Lasol Duke, armed with a knife, robbed East Coast resident Harrichand Nacknand of one cell phone, $10,000 and other articles amounting to a total value of $75,000. It was also alleged that on the said date, whilst being armed with a knife, they robbed Intiaz Ali, who also resides on the East Coast, of one cell phone and $4000, a total value of $11,000.
The defendants were not required to plead to the indictable charge.
Appearing for Primo was attorney at law, Paul Fung A Fat, who stated that the 33-year-old is innocent. The lawyer stated that on the night in question the virtual complainants approached the woman, who is a ‘lady of the night’ for some business. She agreed after an offer was made to engage in sexual relations with both of the victims. During their threesome, they were interrupted by two men, Duke and Williams, who robbed the complainants. It is upon this basis that the lawyer requested bail as he reiterated that his client was simply performing her duties but was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Primo then begged the court for an opportunity to further explain the unfortunate circumstances of which she was only a victim.
“Your worship these men approached me on the said night and ask me if I working and I said yes. I took them in my yard after they agree to do vaginal sex for $2000 and I agree to it. During the heat of the sex, one of them gon ask me to do anal and I told him that I don’t do anal sex for that li’l bit of money. Then we had a lil scuffle as they tried to do it. Then Williams who lives at my apartment, come out with Duke to rescue me, but end up robbing the men and I holla on them and tell them they gon get me in trouble.”
In spite of the defendants’ appeals, the prosecution strongly objected to bail as they emphasised the seriousness of the offence, the sentence it attracts, and if granted bail they may not appear for their trial.
Magistrate Latchman upheld the objection and the defendants were subsequently remanded.
But that was only the beginning of a period of chaos which caused almost the entire of the Magistrates’ court to come to a halt.
The obviously upset defendants whilst being escorted out of the courtroom exchanged a few words with a police officer. It was observed that Williams and Duke began threatening the officer for holding onto them in a rough manner. The disagreement among the three escalated into a fight which caught the attention of at least eight ranking officers at the court.
As officers tried to settle the melee, it continued to disturb the court proceedings. The accused duo continued to unleash punches and kicks at the officers that swarmed them. They were eventually parted but on their way down, Williams reportedly pushed another officer into a wall of Magistrate Fabayo Azore’s court as he was being taken to the holding cell. His actions left a large hole in the wall which was later patched with paper tape.
