SOME FAMILY MEMBERS of the victims of the Campus Trendz tragedy have expressed disappointment that they had to hear of the High Court’s sentencing of the killer through the media.
At least one felt they should have been notified of the sentencing date for 22-year-old Renaldo Anderson Alleyne who, last Wednesday, was sent to prison on six concurrent life sentences for killing Pearl Cornelius, Shanna Griffith, Kellisha Olliviere, Tiffany Harding, Nikita Belgrave and Kelly-Ann Welch when he firebombed the Tudor Street, Bridgetown boutique on September 3, 2010.
Griffith’s father Stanley Phillips told the SUNDAY SUN he felt disrespected and insulted by the judicial system because it did not notify him and other relatives about the sentencing.
“They could have showed you a little respect and called you for the sentencing,” said a visibly upset Phillips, “even if you had to stand on the sidewalk outside the courthouse. The law or the judicial system just took it upon themselves to do things how they wanted to.
