Second writ filed for man’s release

A HIGH COURT JUDGE’S ORDER to have a man released from HMP Dodds within seven days appears to have fallen on deaf ears.

As a result, his lawyers have filed a second writ to have those responsible immediately present the prisoner to the court to be released.

Ronald Alexander White remains behind bars more than 14 days after the release order was issued by Justice Randall Worrell.

On November 14 the defence team of Mohia Ma’at and Anya Lorde brought the application for a writ of habeas corpus before the Supreme Court. Successful arguments were made by the lawyers who deemed the continued detention of White as “unreasonable and unjust”. (TS)
