Attorneys for Leroy Williams and Alfie Garraway have handed over written submissions to Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan and the prosecution, in relation to the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the Kaieteur News grenade attack.
Williams, 25, of D’Urban Backlands, Georgetown; Janeil Howard, 20, of Section ‘C’ Turkeyen, East Coast Demerara and Garraway, 36, of Norton Street, Lodge, Georgetown, are accused of conspiring together with other persons to cause an explosion by way of grenade, likely to endanger lives and cause damage to property.
The offence occurred on June 4, at Saffon Street, Charlestown.
Garraway is currently out on $300,000 High Court bail. The two other accused remain on remand.
Williams is being represented by Attorney Neil Bollers. Attorney Stanley Moore is representing Garraway. Howard remains unrepresented.
Copies of the submissions were given to the Chief Magistrate and Police Prosecutor Simone Payne (who is holding for Police Prosecutor Neville Jeffers), by the attorneys, when the PI continued yesterday in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.
The matter has been adjourned until December 19, when Prosecutor Jeffers is expected to respond.
At the last court hearing (December 12) Jeffers closed the case for the state by calling Somal Sharma, Network Administrator at Kaieteur News and Police Constable Darson La Rose, who is stationed at the Ruimveldt Police Station, to testify.
According to reports, on the day in question, a security staffer heard an unusual sound coming from near Kaieteur News Publisher Glenn Lall’s vehicle, PRR 8398, which was parked on the western side of the newspaper’s Lot 24 Saffon Street, Georgetown location.
On checking the front of the vehicle, the staffer spotted a grenade lying near one of the front tyres. Video footage from the company’s CCTV cameras showed a grey-coloured vehicle, slowing as it approached Lall’s vehicle. The driver accelerated after the explosive device was thrown.
Shemar Wilson also known as ‘Abdue’ is still wanted by the police for questioning in relation to the grenade attack. He is 20 years of age and his last known addresses have been given as 43 North Sophia and 51 West La Penitence, Georgetown.
