Five arrested for hosting “cockfight” in Corentyne
Five persons were arrested and subsequently placed on $5,000 bail each after they allegedly hosted a “cockfight” in contradiction to the COVID-19 guidelines in place to curb the spread of the disease.
The gazette COVID-19 measures prevent the gathering of more than five persons.
The News Room understands that approximately 150 persons were present at the cockfight which took place at the Port Mourant Race Course around midday on Sunday.
The Police subsequently received information and made the arrest.
Additionally, a horse race was also held earlier in the day at the same location, but by the time the Police received word the gathering had dispersed.
Those arrested are expected to appear in court on Thursday.
