Cops accused of extra-judicial killings denied bail

Following last week's trend of denying bail for the cops from the Clarendon Police Division who have been accused of being involved in extra-judicial killings, Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey again said no.

Four of eight lawmen who appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday were denied bail as the RM said investigations are ongoing and the reports of witness interference are alarming.

Leeford Gordon and constables Romaine De La Haye, Damon Robinson and Pete Samuels, who were assigned to the May Pen Police Station will face a preliminary enquiry on June 23.

Gordon, De La Haye and Robinson are charged with the murder of Marvin Shand on January 4, at New Longville in Clarendon, while Samuels is charged with the May 25, 2011 murder of Sylvester Gallimore.

Allegations are that Gordon, De La Haye, and Robinson ambushed and shot Shand, who was carrying bags of ground provision and other items on his head and in his hands.

It is alleged that a photograph of the dead man's body was found in De La Haye's cellular phone, which supported reports that Shand was travelling with loaded bags and wasn't armed.
