Complainant fed up with delay, drops case

COURT TODAY BLOCKKimberly Ellis got so frustrated with the long delay in the court system that she decided to drop her case against Mario Deangelo Parris in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court.

Parris, 24, of #99 F, Parkinson Field, the Pine, St Michael had been charged with indecently assaulting Ellis on March 2, 2011.

But when she appeared in court today, the complainant told the court she was no longer interested in pursuing the matter.

When asked by Magistrate Douglas Frederick why she had come to that decision, a clearly frustrated Ellis replied, “I aint bout this nah more”.

It led to Frederick telling police prosecutor Station Sergeant Neville Watson that he had taken too long to start the matter.

However, in his defense, Watson said he had not been able to proceed with the case because he had not yet received the necessary documents.

The magistrate then dismissed the case.

    Alice-and her many happy cohorts- is alive and well, in Wonderland. The Mad Hatter, is still trying to find his hat…and those “papers”. “Onwards, and Upwards”… and “Forward Ever, Backwards never”…as my erstwhile school-buddy, Bernard Coard, used to say to cajole and to inspire his Leninist Generals to achieve higher depths. Off wid his filing cabinet, I say!

    So we wonder why some people …do not, nowadays, take us seriously? Especially, when compared with our judicial system, c.1950…even 1960’s? I used to quake with fear, and lift my foot off the accelerator, at the merest glimpse of a certain motor-cycle cop, fondly Remembered… and Respected

    And today bajans have become genuine law breakers , because they would see the same happens as to miss Ellis , or police not really investigating the matters criminal in hand. Or because harry know john’s sister, who is a friend of peter and sally and it goes on and on till nothing happens..

    30.000 cars on the road not insured, fake number plates, thieving ducks, cows, sheep ,grass rum, whisky , brandy, and anything which can be taken away..

    It’s also reversed, an accused is held at Dodds whilst awaiting a timely hearing. Equal Rights and Justice
