Wrongful death case against police …”JUDGE STEPS DOWN”

Spread the word
The judge who was arrested recently for drunk driving, has stepped down from a case involving the police.

Justice Kevin Ramcharan did so, citing conflict of interest.

Ramcharan, who was charged with driving under the influence on May 26, was expected to deliver his ruling on Thursday, in the claim filed by the families of the three people who were killed by six police offices in July 2011.

He gave no explanation of why he could no longer sit on the case or deliver his ruling when the matter came up for hearing in the Port of Spain High Court.

Attorney Keith Scotland, who represents the families of the three people killed, told the judge he has spoken to his clients.

It is understood that Ramcharan decided to step down from the case because Scotland is also one of the attorneys representing him in the drunk driving case in the Magistrates Courts.

Allana Duncan, 27, of Duncan Village, San Fernando, Keron Fernando Eccles, 29, of Moruga Main Road, Moruga, and Abigail Johnson, 20, of Burton Trace, Moruga, were shot dead by police around 9 pm on July 22, 2011.

Sgt Khemraj Sahadeo and Constables Renaldo Reviero, Glenn Singh, Roger Nicholas, Safraz Juman, and Antonio Ramadin were charged with the killings and are awaiting trial.
