Alleged Clansman gangster delays court

July 25, 2022

The Clansman-One Don Gang trial was delayed this morning after one of the alleged gangsters reportedly refused to attend the sitting.

The information was disclosed by Chief Justice Bryan Sykes who noted that he was advised that defendant Ted Prince opted not to be present and was not been brought to court.

Prince's lawyer advised the court, by way of a message, that he was taken by surprise and that he was trying to find out what was behind his client's action.

Sykes, as a result, adjourned the court for 20 minutes to await further word on the situation.

Some time later, Prince arrived at court, which allowed the trial to resume.

No explanation was given for his delayed appearance.

Prince is among 28 defendants who are on trial in the Home Circuit Court along with reputed leader Andre 'Blackman' Bryan.

The defendants are being tried on an indictment with 14 counts under the Criminal Justice (Suppression of Criminal Organisation's) Act and the Firearms Act.

Initially, 33 defendants were indicted but five were freed.
