Strong objection

Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim raised strong objection yesterday to a client being asked to report to a police station in light of the charges faced and the treatment he said was meted out to the accused.

His comments came as Akeela Jackee Merandy Riley, 32, of Cottage Grove, St George, appeared in the District “A” Traffic Court.

She denied driving a vehicle without insurance; using fraudulent licence plates; not registering her vehicle with the Barbados Licensing Authority; failing to draw her vehicle to the left side of the road at the sound of a siren; not wearing a seat belt, and causing her vehicle to stand on Bank Hall Road, thereby calling an unnecessary obstruction, all on July 19.

Riley also denied she assaulted Constable Jamal Alleyne; that she resisted and assaulted Constable Dario Griffith, and that she damaged a cell phone belonging to Alleyne and a pair of sunglasses, which belonged to Griffith, on July 19. (HLE)
