Lead attorney of former calypso monarch Aziza Kebret Tsgaye Clarke has made an application in the Magistrates’ Court for her vehicle to be returned to her.
Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley made the submission before Magistrate Elwood Watts in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court today on the grounds that the vehicle MC92 was no longer of any use to law enforcement officers as they had already taken photographic evidence.
After hearing Lashley’s arguments the matter was adjourned until May 16 when prosecutor Station Sergeant Rudolph Burnett will respond to the submissions.
Magistrate Watts is also expected to deliver his decision on that date.
The 23-year-old Clarke, of Unit 4 Bonnetts, Brittons Hill, St Michael, remains on $20,000 bail.
Her substantive cases will continue in the Oistins Magistrates’ Court on August 13.
Clarke is facing a number of charges which allegedly occurred on March 21 in Graeme Hall, Christ Church, including an indictable charge of assisting murder accused Hakeem Roberto Stuart, who was charged for the brazen daylight shooting of Damian Trotman at Sheraton Mall.
Clarke is also accused of assaulting a police officer in the execution of his duty; resisting arrest and committing criminal damage. She pleaded not guilty to these three offences.
Additionally, she was charged with failing to stop at the sound of the police siren; failing to register motor vehicle MC92 and using a vehicle without having it insured to which she also pleaded not guilty.
