Campus Trendz accused on hunger strike

A murder accused in the Campus Trendz fire has told a court that he is on hunger strike.
Jamar Bynoe, who is in his early 20s, is on remand awaiting his day in court on a six-count murder indictment which resulted from the September 3, 2010 fire at the Tudor Street clothing boutique.
He told the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday he had taken the action because it was the only way to deal with issues he was facing at HMP Dodds.
He did not disclose those issues.
Bynoe, of St Michael, was in the Court No 2 of the District “A” Court, for the continuation of the preliminary enquiries into the arson and aggravated burglary of a Chicken Galore outlet at Bank Hall, on August 13, 2010.
The prosecution was about to call a witness when Bynoe indicated he was in no condition to cross-examine the witness.
He claimed to be light-headed.
“I haven’t eaten for 12 days,” he told presiding Magistrate Deborah Holder.
