Verdict in drug agents’ attack case due soon


02-May-2013

The crime is said to have taken place at Corgat Estate on July 10 last year when the agents went to investigate possible drug trafficking.

The accused appeared before the court on Tuesday when defence lawyers Nichole Gabriel and Alexia Amesbury agreed on June 12 to 14 as the likely dates they will wind up the case.

Court officials described the case as a serious one noting it is the first time law enforcement agents have been attacked and injured during the course of their duties.

A former agent told the court how he and some of his colleagues had to flee a home they had approached when many people fought the officers with empty bottles and knives, one of which was produced in court.
