Cops move on CJ’s Chambers

FRAUD Squad detectives yesterday obtained a warrant to search the Chambers of Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma at the Hall of Justice.

This move has come as the investigation into allegations that Shar-ma attempted to influence Chief Magistrate Sher-man McNicolls in the recently concluded trial of former prime minister Basdeo Panday draws to a close.

The action has also occurred while Sharma is attending an overseas conference in the Czech Republic and while lead investigator, Assistant Commissioner of Police Wellington Virgil, remains at a private health institution recovering from minor surgery to his left foot.

  • Cops seize papers from CJ’s office
    Fraud Squad detectives yesterday seized several confidential documents from the chambers of Chief Justice Satnarine Sharma, as investigations continued into allegations that he attempted to influence the outcome of the criminal trial against former Prime Minister Basdeo Panday.

    Yesterday’s seizure was conducted one day after detectives obtained a warrant to search Sharma’s chambers on the third floor of the Hall of Justice in Port-of-Spain.

    Police Commissioner Trevor Paul witnessed the hour-and-a-half-long search conducted by acting Insp Raphael Romany and WPCpl Charmain Williams.

  • Cops Clear McNicolls
    Police say that since Mc Nicolls has been cleared his credibility rating will rise and they will also rely on several other witnesses who have provided statements, including Sir Timothy Cassel QC, to mount the case against Sharma.

    Frightened or afraid?
    At the heart of the matters involving the Chief Justice is the grave question whether persons in high society, who have cases before the courts, have privileged access to the Judiciary to have these cases decided in their favour or expedited because of who they are. In other words, they seek to rip the blindfold off Themis, so that she may be improperly influenced to favour the chosen few.
