State not pursuing appeal

The state has decided it will not pursue the appeal of the dismissal of the intellectual property/trademark matters against Leroy Fitzgerald “Daddy I-Roy/De Warrior” Brathwaite.

As a result, the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal yesterday.

It was in May 2021 that Brathwaite, a 58-year-old businessman, of Wanstead Terrace, St James, had three charges relating to fake Puma clothing and shoes dismissed by Chief Magistrate Ian Weekes.

Brathwaite, owner of Upper Room on Swan Street, The City, had been charged that in trade or in commerce as a supplier, on May 29, 2017, he falsely represented that 11 pairs of slippers and 13 T-shirts were of a particular standard, style or model, to wit, the brand Puma, contrary to the Consumer Protection Act Cap 326D.
