Four minibus operators charged with attempted murder
Four minibus operators were on Monday charged with attempted murder and appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan.
The men charged are: Randy Shaw, 33; Terry Campbell, 41; Akeem Lawrence, 24; and Esan Henry, 23. They were not required to plea to the indictable charge.
It is alleged that on February 23, 2019, at Peter Rose and Forshaw Street, Georgetown, the four men unlawfully and maliciously wounded Vishnu Boodram with intent to commit murder.
Attorney-at-law George Thomas represented Shaw, Campbell and Lawrence while Henry was represented by Jermaine Jervis.
Police Prosecutor Gordon Mansfield made no objection to bail but requested the defendants lodge their passport at the court and face other conditions.
The court heard that on the day in question, the victim was in his motor car when an argument ensued between him and Shaw.
It is alleged that Shaw, along with the other three men, then attacked Boodram with knives. The victim received several injuries and was picked up in a subconscious state and rushed to a city hospital.
The Chief Magistrate released the men on $200,000 bail each with the condition that they stay 50 feet from the victim. The matter was adjourned until May 21, 2019.
