State almost ready to start case against WPC
The State is expected to begin its case soon against WPC Nicole Clement, as it has almost finished putting together documents for the charge of perverting the course of public justice laid against her. Clement reappeared in the Princes Town First Magistrates’ Court on the 2011 charge on Monday. She is the State’s main witness against six other police officers who were committed to stand trial for the July 22, 2011, murders of three Moruga residents—Abigail Johnson, Alana Duncan and Kerron “Fingers” Eccles.
Prosecutor Eileen Greene, who is instructing Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard and Gilbert Peterson, SC, in the matter, told Senior Magistrate Siumongal Ramsaran that as indicated before, the State will be proceeding by way of paper committal. She said the paper committal process is ongoing. Clement is charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice in 2011.
On Monday, her attorney Richard Mason, who is instructing Pamela Elder, SC, said the prosecution had indicated it was preparing documents and was almost ready to file statements.
The matter was adjourned to September 11. Clement is the State’s main witness against acting Sgt Khemraj Sahadeo and PCs Renaldo Reviero, Glenn Singh, Roger Nicholas, Safraz Juman and Antonio Ramadin, who are charged with killing the three friends at Rochard Douglas Road, Barrackpore.
