Shooting victim accused of kidnapping

COURT TODAY BLOCKAnthony Junior ‘Platinum’ Hewitt should have been in attendance at the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court No. 2 yesterday.

However, he was unable to do so as he was shot several times over the weekend and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Hewitt, who resides at Gills Road, Eagle Hall, St Michael, is accused with two others of kidnapping Kirk Francis on
January 22, 2013.

Meanwhile, in another case, a 22-year-old George Street, Belleville, St Michael man who was out on bail after being charged for firearms and drugs offences, was killed in a motorcycle accident a few days ago.

Suleman Ayyub Ekalvaya, a student, had been charged with having an unlicensed gun, nine rounds of ammunition, cannabis, intent to supply the same marijuana and trafficking the drugs, all on August 8.

He was remanded to HMP Dodds by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, but was later granted $75 000 bail by the High Court.

    Everyone of these people seems to have criminal records, when certain incidents occur, you will have to consider , first the criminal past.

    Bottom line seeing that the court system isn’t doing anything to bring these criminals to justice an instead given them bail the higher power is calling all them back where they belong so let these young people continue to do crime an u will see them dropping down all over Barbados like flies mark my word retribution is coming to all these criminals.

    Can someone please tell me how many people were killed in Barbados since. Let’s say July 2015. Then compare it to the same time last year.

    nb you forgot an interesting fact. Criminals don’t stop and think
    ,if they are capable anyhow of doing such, when they are about to seek revenge or to unleash ignorance on a society especially when carrying a firearm… They seem to just shoot any and everywhere sometimes taking innocent lives as has happen recently in Indian Ground…. Criminals need to be taken off the street.. Guns and all!!
