[www.inewsguyana.com] – Three police constables were on Friday refused bail by Magistrate Ann McLennan for allegedly receiving bribe in the sum of $6M in return for granting a free pass to a bus and its occupants they intercepted with cocaine.
Ray Drepaul Saul of Eversham Village, 26-year-old Trevon McKenzie of Princeton Village, Corentyne, and 42-year-old Shawn McPhoy of Lot 174 Laing Avenue, West Ruimveldt, all pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The three junior ranks were remanded to prison.
However, Assistant Superintendant 48- year- old Terrence Browne was charged separately and granted bail in the sum of $250,000.
The policemen are accused of corruptly obtaining from Renason Park the sum of $6M as an inducement for forbearing to charge him with trafficking narcotics.
Police Prosecutor Deniro Jones successfully opposed bail on the likelihood that the defendants may tamper with witnesses.
The three junior ranks were all remanded to prison while Browne was ordered to lodge his passport with the police and the matter was transferred to Whim Magistrate Court, for October 12.
