… sub judice rule prohibits public discussion of ongoing casesInsane’ Freddie Kissoon could face up to one month jail time for contempt of court. This comes in light of Kissoon’s public discussion of a case, which is currently before the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Freddie KissoonKissoon’s ramblings about the case in tabloid-like newspaper Kaieteur News constitutes sub judice, as the matter is under judicial consideration and, therefore, prohibited from public discussion. As such, his actions can now interfere with the administration of justice. The Magistrate also has discretion to make a gag order to avoid a trial by the press. Lord Justice Watkins in Peacock v London Weekend Television (1985) 150 J.P. 71 at p. 80, said: “In our land we do not allow trial by television or newspaper. Until the well-recognised institution of this country for the doing of justice, namely the courts, have worked their course, then the hand of the writer and the voice of the broadcaster must be still.”Kissoon’s sanity was questioned last week when he failed to demonstrate comprehension of basic questions by a defence attorney during a cross-examination in a case for which he was a witness. On several occasions, the presiding Magistrate in that case has to caution Kissoon after he kept ranting at every question asked. The lawyer experienced great difficulties securing direct answers from Kissoon, who opted to respond to every question philosophically. His responses seemed to entertain persons in the courtroom as there were chuckles every time he answered.As such, the lawyer in his submissions to the court questioned Kissoon’s sanity, pointing out to the court that his evidence should be withdrawn, since he has proven on several occasions that he was incompetent to stand trial. According to Section 49 of the Evidence Act, a witness is incompetent if in the opinion of the court if he is prevented by memory lapse from recollecting the matter on which he is supposed to testify, from understanding the questions put to him, from giving rational answers to those questions, or from knowing that he ought to speak the truth. Under cross-examination Kissoon repeatedly stated that he was unable to recollect certain important matters, he was unable to understand simple questions and instead of answering questions, went off on a tangent about philosophy and semantics.Importantly, when questioned about his knowing that he affirmed to tell the whole truth, he denied ever making such an affirmation. Guyana Times understands that legal luminaries have advised Kissoon to take his mediation on a regular basis.
Two Police Constables have been confirmed to be presently under close arrest as Police probe a rape allegation made against them.The alleged rape incident occurred on New Year’s Day at the Turkeyen Police Station. This was confirmed by C Division (East Coast Demerara) Commander Calvin Brutus.Reports surrounding the incident revealed that the victim, a 22-year-old female, was at the time using the washroom facilities at the Police Station, being there to make a Police report when she was allegedly attacked.The woman is reporting that she went to the Station to make a report regarding a squib which was thrown on her son.However while there, she requested to use the washroom at the Station and while inside the said washroom, the men reportedly pounced on her.It was also confirmed that the traumatised woman reported the matter to a senior official who directed her as to what procedure should be followed.The ranks, however, are maintaining their innocence in the matter and have given a different account of what they said actually took place.The matter is being investigated.

QPR have again been linked with Newcastle full-back Danny Simpson, this time by the Sunday People.It is claimed that Simpson, 26, is keen to move to London if he is not offered a new contract at St James’ Park and that he is also wanted by West Ham and promoted Hull.Meanwhile, Real Madrid are insisting that Cristiano Ronaldo is not for sale, again according to the People.Jose Mourinho is expected to leave the Spanish club and return to Chelsea, but it is claimed that Real president Florentino Perez has told him he cannot take Ronaldo with him.Perez is apparently keen to reject offers from the Blues and Manchester United for Ronaldo, who has been linked with a return to Old Trafford.The People also say Manchester City will beat Chelsea to the signing of Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao.The Sunday Mirror, meanwhile, say Chelsea have told Manchester United to name their price for Wayne Rooney and are prepared to pay over £30m for him.The same paper also suggest Everton’s Marouane Fellaini wants to join United despite Chelsea’s apparent interest.And The Sun on Sunday claim Chelsea want to sell Fernando Torres and are set to make a £30m loss on him.This page is regularly updated.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Within the city limits, you may find more weathered wood, barn doors and farm décor these days. For some it may be a way to go back in time to simpler days and for others it may be a trend they saw on HGTV. Nevertheless, there is no doubt that those that dwell in the city have a major case of farm envy.You might have read about a friend of ours that makes his living taking down old barns that have been sitting empty for decades. Removing these structures is at the request of the landowners, mostly because they no longer have a use on the farm and after years of sun, rain, hail and wind have become an historic eyesore.What you may not know is that once these old heaps of rotten wood are taken down, they go from a nuisance to a novelty in a matter of seconds, as “reclaimed” barn wood is being utilized in brand new homes in an upscale subdivision near you. Uses vary from a mantle over the fireplace, to a headboard, to a kitchen table, to porch flooring. But make no mistake about it; this old wood is chic in the city.As if the wood from the barns wasn’t enough to satisfy the urban craving for farm life, they are putting up barn doors as well. That’s right, sliding doors that resemble the old style barn door with every detail down to the knotty wood, wrought iron handles and casting rollers. Sometimes these “old fashioned” barn doors lead into the bathroom, so I hope that hook and loop lock work. That would make you think twice if someone told you your barn door was open.Then recently, I came across another example of the farm revolution into home design and this was one that even I might consider. Check out this Massey Ferguson vintage tractor bar! What farmer wouldn’t want to belly up to this awesome piece (especially after this planting season)?As the description reads: This abandoned vintage tractor was rescued from an empty field and magnificently repurposed into a table bar with an elegant glass top, giving it a second and useful long life. Curated by an out-of-the-box thinker and creative type who envisions masterpieces when others only see trash, this special and unique design is for the discerning individual who is not into the mass-produced, cookie-cutter look and wants to ensure that there is nothing common about any of their home furnishings. It comes equipped with two color-complimented bar stools.This beautiful piece could be yours for $2,695!I’ve got a better idea. I’ll get a couple of six packs and we’ll head to the shop and just sit in actual tractors and have just as good of a time. I may even invite a few city friends to help them with their farm envy.
Investigation of Alwar lynching case shifted to Jaipur Rattled by the reports about the delayed response of police in dealing with the alleged lynching of Haryana resident Rakbar Khan in Alwar district, the Rajasthan police on Monday constituted a high-level team of four senior officers to probe into the case. The team will look into the allegations of “deliberate delay” in taking the victim to a hospital.The team comprises Special Director General of Police (Law & Order) N.R.K. Reedy, Additional DGP (CID-Crime Branch) P.K. Singh, Inspector-General of Police (Jaipur Range) Hemant Priyadarshi and State Nodal Officer (Cow Vigilance) Mahendra Singh Chaudhary.DGP O.P. Galhotra said the team would look into the alleged delayed response and other connected issues related to Rakbar’s murder. “The team of senior police officers is already on the way to Alwar. Prompt and strict action will be taken against the guilty based on the team’s report,” he said.Also Read Mr. Galhotra said it would also be investigated whether Rakbar, 31, was thrashed by the policemen when he was in their custody on the intervening night of Friday and Saturday. Rakbar was declared dead on arrival at the Community Health Centre (CHC) at Ramgarh.The team’s appointment was in addition to the overall probe being shifted out of Alwar and handed over to Additional Superintendent of Police (Crime & Vigilance), Jaipur Range, Vandana Bhati. The decision was taken after questions were raised over the conduct of the local police.Rakbar and his friend Aslam, belonging to Kolgaon village in Haryana’s Nuh district, were attacked by by a group of people on suspicion that he was smuggling cows in the forest area of Ramgarh’s Lalawandi village on Friday night. While Aslam managed to escape, Rakbar sustained severe injuries and was declared dead when the policemen took him to the Ramgarh CHC.Since Rakbar was in the custody of police for about three hours, the citizens and activists in Alwar have been asking why there was a delay in taking the critically injured man to the hospital.
