[www.inewsguyana.com] – Trevor Dikerie appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, charged with three counts of assault. He was granted bail in the sum of $60,000.
The unrepresented defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges which alleged that on Thursday, December 12 in Georgetown, he assaulted Richard Austin, causing actual bodily harm.
The second offence stated that on November 24 at Georgetown, he unlawfully assaulted the said virtual complainant (VC).
He also pleaded not guilty to the third charge, which alleged that on the same day he assaulted Randy Phillips. Police Prosecutor, Bharat Mangru told the Court that on the day in question, the defendant attacked Austin and dealt him two chops about his body, and when Phillips intervened, he was also chopped.
Mangru objected to the pretrial liberty of the defendant citing the seriousness and the prevalence of the offence. He further stated that since the defendant is known to both virtual complainants (VC), he may tamper with the witnesses. However, bail was granted and Dikerie will re appear in Court on January 13.
