Mings denies hitting vendor with garbage can

A well-known Black Rock man accused of injuring a vendor by knocking her down with a garbage can on October 17, 2012, today vehemently denied the charge.

Levinston Anthony Mings was in the dock before District ‘A’ Magistrate Douglas Frederick charged with injuring Martha Doyle.

Mings, who is represented by Hal Gollop, QC, also rejected suggestions by the prosecuting officer that on the day in question he went into his house and returned with a cutlass.

When the prosecutor put it to Mings that he had knocked down the complainant with the can, the accused strongly denied it, but suggested that she might have fallen because she has no toes due to her bad diabetic condition.

Mings, who opted today to make a statement from the witness stand and be subjected to cross examination and re-examination, informed the court he intended to call two witnesses to support his case.

Hearing was adjourned until October 5, 2016.

    I guess by now all or any scars would have been healed .(Collateral damage).
    Why would a case like this take four years to be heard? Something is seriously wrong with the Court and Justice Systems in Barbados . I suppose criminals know that if they commit a crime ,they’ll have enough time to commit many more by the time the Courts get around to hearing and or doing anything about them.
    It is a shameful ,and disgusting situation that no one in Government seem to care about.
    Wonder if we had a population of a million or more what it would be like to have a case before our KANGAROO COURTS?
    We in Barbados is much more backwards than we would like those on the outside to think.
