– Lawyer says client’s life in dangerOliver HincksonSedition accused Oliver Hinckson made yet another appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court, yesterday, and was once again refused bail.Prior to the commencement of deliberations, Hinckson’s lawyer Nigel Hughes pointed out to the presiding magistrate, Acting Chief Magistrate Melissa Robertson-Ogle,Cheap NFL Jerseys, that his client was still shackled.Hughes argued that not only is the treatment meted out to his client unfair,China Jerseys, but the action is not in keeping with a fair trial.Following Hughes’s heartfelt expressions, the Acting Chief Magistrate then ordered that Hinckson’s restraints be removed.In his client’s defence, Hughes then proceeded to establish that there are two issues he must raise before the actual Preliminary Inquiry begins; one being that a warrant was signed by the magistrate on August 15, 2008 and that his client was taken from the Georgetown Prisons to be questioned.According to Hughes,Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic, Hinckson was taken to Police Headquarters, Eve Leary, then to the Brickdam Police Station and lastly to the La Grange Police Station. The lawyer said that while his client was at the La Grange Station, he was exposed to someone who was infected with Tuberculosis, which is a highly contagious disease.Hughes debated that there was no proper explanation as to why his client was taken from the prison, even as he added that he is aware that when a police officer needs to question a prisoner who is already in custody, that officer would have to do so at the prison.The lawyer further disclosed that it is his understanding that when a magistrate signs a warrant it in essence becomes the property of the prison.In addition to highlighting the apparent breach of protocol, Hughes went on to reveal that according to information received his client’s life is in danger.He opined that apart from that, there is a clear attempt being made to negatively impact the trial.Hughes articulated that there are forces trying to interfere with the court’s work, even as he questioned whether it is legal for his client to be placed in solitary confinement for 22-and-a-half hours daily.The lawyer told the court that Hinckson is allowed to see sunlight for merely one-and-a- half hours, noting that the treatment is “unusual and cruel” for his client.Special Prosecutor Sanjeev Datadin said that he was unaware of the accused being removed from the prison and as such he could not comment on that matter.Datadin said in relation to the solitary confinement that the prison reserves the right to institute any punishment it sees fit.The defence then began cross examination of the first witness.After Hughes had completed his cross examination, he made a series of requests that the defence would like to have fulfilled by the state.Among these were that the names of the “virtual complainants” be made available to the defence; that the defence receives a copy of the transcript and notes that were used when the accused was interviewed; and that a copy of the case docket be made available to the defence counsel.The lawyer further made a bail application on behalf of his client.He said that a number of things had changed since that Friday in July when a previous bail application was overruled. He pointed out that the defence has since won a petition in the High Court in this regard.According to Hughes, it is only Magistrate Robertson-Ogle who can grant bail for the accused and no one else, adding that Justice Ramlall can only sanction on what has happened before September 3, 2008.The lawyer further noted that Judge Ramlall cannot make a prospective order against the accused.The Special Prosecutor,China Jerseys Online, however, interjected in order to declare the state’s objection to bail. Datadin said that he does know about any order that was granted in regards to what the lawyer said,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, but admitted that he could be mistaken.Hughes, as a result, said that he is willing to take the matter to the Caribbean Court of Justice because Judge Ramlall has no right to intervene in the matter.Magistrate Robertson-Ogle then refused bail and requested to see the relevant documents before she adjourned the matter until next Monday (September 8).
