Man shot by security guard for an alleged robbery granted bail

first_imgTwenty-four-year-old Kevin Benn of John Street, Campbellville, who was shot by a security guard following a robbery committed on a teen in April last, was on Monday placed on bail in the sum of $60,000 by Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman.Benn had denied the allegation when he made his first appearance in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts. The Police had said that on April 1, 2018, while Benn was in the company of others, he had robbed Navendra Rampersaud of his mobile phone.Based on reports, Benn and two other teenagers were apprehended on April 1, 2018 after they allegedly attempted to rob 18-year-old Rampersaud and his friend, Ramesh Sooklall.The incident reportedly occurred at about 21:15h on the day in question on Hincks Street, Georgetown. When the two victims exited a taxi, they were pounced upon by the three men, one of whom was armed with a knife, and Rampersaud had his cell phone confiscated.However, when the second perpetrator attempted to rob Sooklall, an argument ensued, and this prompted the three men to flee the scene.Ranks on patrol in the area at the time were informed, and promptly responded by giving chase with the assistance of MMC security patrol. They were able to apprehend the three perpetrators at the corner of King and Regent Streets.One of the alleged bandits attempted to confiscate the firearm of a security rank, but was shot to his right side neck while the security guard received injuries to his mouth.Both men were taken to the GPHC, where they were treated. The security guard was sent away, while Benn remained under Police supervision at the medical facility.Neither Benn’s accomplices — a 19-year-old of Vryheid’s Lust, East Coast Demerara and an 18-year-old of Sophia, Greater Georgetown — nor the security guard implicated in Benn’s shooting were present in court to answer to the charges.Benn has been ordered to report to the Brickdam Police Station every Friday until completion of this matter, and arrest warrants have been issued for the other parties involved.The matter will continue on October 8, 2018 with a report.last_img read more

SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’

first_imgFianna Fáil Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill has called on Fine Gael and Labour Oireachtas members in Donegal to stand up against deeply unfair cuts in Budget 2013.Senator Ó Domhnaill said the TDs and Senators who have been wrestling with their consciences in public over mean-spirited measures in the Budget have an opportunity this week and next to vote against these cuts.The Donegal Senator said, “This Budget contains some deeply unfair measures that fly in the face of promises made by Fine Gael and Labour to voters here in Donegal and across the country. It is a Budget that takes no account of people’s ability to pay, does nothing to encourage growth and puts further pressure on already badly squeezed lower and middle income families.“A number of Government representatives both locally and nationally, including Fine Gael’s Joe McHugh, have been publically wrestling with their consciences over these callous cuts. Across the country there has been a parade of Fine Gael and Labour representatives muttering about the need for ‘processes’ and ‘consultation’ to change a budget they initially rushed to welcome. “But there is a process this week where they have the power to change these measures. They can vote against the cuts they disagree with during the debate on the Social Welfare Bill this week. My party intends to force votes on the measures we believe will further erode the quality of life of the most vulnerable, and the measures that take no account of ability to pay. These include:– the cut to child benefit– the cut to Respite Care Grant– the cuts to the Farm Assist Programme– the flat rate increase to PRSI affecting all income earners the same“If Government representatives really feel strongly about these callous cuts, they will vote against them instead of supporting them. The Fine Gael TDs here in Donegal can show their constituents that they are prepared to keep their promises.“This is about choices. If the Government had taken Fianna Fái;’s suggestion of adding 3% to the Universal Social Charge (USC) for people on over €100,000 a year and changes to pension tax relief for the country’s highest earners, most of these deeply unfair measures would have been completely unnecessary.” SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’ was last modified: December 11th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:SENATOR CHALLENGES DONEGAL TDs TO STAND UP TO ‘UNFAIR CUTS’last_img read more
