Alleyne faces charges under Sexual Offences Act
Television personality and Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne was last night arrested outside the Independence Square, Port-of-Spain, offices of Caribbean Communications Network (CCN). The T&T Guardian understands that Alleyne’s arrest stemmed from broadcasts on his show on October 25 and 26 last year, during which the brutal rape of a 13-year-old mentally-disabled girl was allegedly aired. Senior police sources revealed that Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard was contacted by investigators late Wednesday evening for advice on possible criminal prosecution against Alleyne. Up to late yesterday, it could not be confirmed if charges were laid against Alleyne, but the Guardian understands that Gaspard advised that three charges under Section 32 (2) of the Sexual Offences Act be laid.
