Chief Magistrate concerned over Immigration inquiries

By JADA LOUTOO Tuesday, January 21 2014

CHIEF MAGISTRATE Marcia Ayers-Caesar has expressed concern that the police officer who is charged with the Sea Lots, Port-of-Spain crash in which a mother and her two children were killed, may have attempted to obtain a new passport.

Ayers-Caesar raised the concern when Constable Sherwin Legere, of Bagna Trace, Chase Village, Chaguanas, appeared before her in the Port-of-Spain Eighth Magistrates Court, yesterday. The chief magistrate said she wanted to place on the record her concern, after inquiries were made of her office by officials of the Immigration Department.

Legere is on $250,000 bail and one of the conditions of his bail was that he surrender his passport.

Ayers-Caesar said she was concerned about the inquiry, and sought to elicit from the policeman’s attorney if this was true, making it clear that he should not attempt to acquire a new passport.

Attorney Joseph Honore, who represents Legere, after consulting his client, said the allegation was not true. The case was set to April 10 for trial.

Legere has been charged with three offences of causing death by dangerous driving, to Haydee Paul, and her daughters, Akasha, eight, and Shakira, seven.

The three were struck and killed while walking along a pavement at the Beetham Highway, Port-of-Spain, on the morning of February 24, 2013. Legere also faced a fourth charge that he “drove motor vehicle PCT 3096, in a manner which was dangerous to the public, having regard to all the circumstances of the case”.
