Gregory Hannays, a senior tax partner at Ernst & Young has appeared before a Port-of-Spain Magistrate charged with wounding the son of the late prosecutor, Rangee Dolsingh.
Hannays appeared before Senior Magistrate Nanette Forde-John in the Fifth Magistrates’ Court. He is accused of wounding attorney Ravi Dolsingh on February 4 at Victoria Gardens, Diego Martin.
It is alleged that Dolsingh was struck in the face with a drinking glass, causing major blood loss due to injury to a major artery in his face.
Dolsingh received 50 stitches, and underwent surgery at Westshore Medical Center.
Hannays, who surrendered to the Four Roads Police Station on Thursday, was granted $100,000 bail bond by a Justice of the Peace at the police station after the charge was laid.
Hannays was not called upon to plead.
The court prosecutor submitted to the court that the prosecution, while they had no objection to Hannays being granted bail, the accused should be made to surrender his passport.
However, Hannays’ attorney Gilbert Peterson SC objected to this application.
Peterson told the magistrate that because of the nature of his client’s job he is required to travel out of the country regularly.
The matter was adjourned to June 5.
Ravi is the son of Rangee Dolsingh who died in 2009.
