Three on assault charges granted bail

Rasbert Turner, Star Writer

Three brothers, two of whom are policemen, who allegedly beat a bus driver in St Catherine on New Year's Day were each granted $50,000 bail when they appeared in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Constables Ramees Ramdeen and Dean Ramdeen of the Clarendon Division and Davy Ramdeen, bus conductor of Portmore, St Catherine, are charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.

When the matter came up, an attempt for mediation proved futile.

Bail was granted on condition that they reappear in court on September 2, when the matter will again be mentioned.

Allegations are that on the day in question, Davy was a conductor on a bus driven by the complainant.

There was disagreement during which he was assaulted by the complainant. He reported to his brothers what happened and they went to Bayside in Portmore, where all three held and beat the complainant.

The trio then drove away in a Toyota Hiace bus which was intercepted in Portmore.

An investigation was launched, and a file compiled and sent to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, who ruled that the men be charged.
