Case dismissed!

Case dismissed!

Gerald Laurencin of Trou Rouge, Castries, yesterday walked a free of further trouble after the prosecution witnesses and investigating officer failed to appear in court.

Laurencin appeared in court to answer charges of threatening words against Gerard Laconte and damage to property to Veronica Cenac.

Attorney for the crown, Andre Ettienne, assured the court that the investigating officer and all parties had been duly informed of the court date.

The Crown representative was unable to provide acceptable reasons for the non-appearance of the two prosecution witnesses or the investigating officer.

The alleged incidents took place on February 23, 2012 at Trou Rouge.

As neither claimant appeared in court yesterday, the matter was dismissed by Magistrate Christine Phulchere.
