AMID NOISE AND TIGHT SECURITY in the Bridgetown courtyard, seven men were taken to court on a range of charges, including murder, and were remanded to HMP Dodds yesterday evening.
The seven – Romario Phillips, Nicholas Shorey, Marvin Victor, Kareem Bailey, Rehquino Barker, Akem Leon and Damian Padmore – went before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale in the District “A” Criminal Court after crossing a crowded courtyard dotted with armed special unit officers, plain-clothed detectives, attorneys, family members and curious onlookers.
Soon after the seven arrived around 2:15 p.m. to the tune of cheering friends and relatives, they were charged with a range of indictable offences. (Coastline Communication)
