Three remanded to prison in Kaieteur News grenade case


By Leroy Smith


Three persons were this morning remanded by Magistrate Ann McLennon for attempting to cause an explosion on Saffon Street by way of a fragmentation grenade.


Twenty year old Janiel Howard; labourer of 322 Section ‘C’ Turkeyen, 25 year old Leroy Williams; a clothes vendor of 11 Durban Back lands and Alfie Garraway; a 36 year old trader of 71 Norton Street appeared in the Georgetown Magistrates Court moments ago to answer to the charge.


The court heard that the trio, along with others unlawfully conspired to cause an explosion on Saffon Street by way of a fragmentation grenade which was likely to cause serious injury or damage to property.


The prosecution told the court that the file is complete and he objected to bail due to the gravity of the offence and the penalty it attracts.


The three would return to court on July 07, 2016. They were not represented this morning.


The three are said to have been among others who tossed a grenade at the vehicle of Kaieteur News Publisher Glenn Lall’s vehicle earlier this month.


The grenade which did not explode was tossed even as the staff of the company were keeping a wake for its crime reporter Dale Andrews who passed away earlier that morning.
