Man freed of child rape charge

first_img…in 1st case tried at new Sexual Offences CourtBy Shemuel FanfairA West Demerara man who had been confined at the Camp Street Prison awaiting trial will now be able to enjoy his liberty after a jury acquitted him of two counts of child sexual activity at the High Court in Georgetown on Monday.Sunil Dindial moments after he was escorted to freedomSunil Dindial had been accused of rape of a child under 16 years old by penetrating a pre-teen female using his finger; but the 12-member jury found him not guilty of this indictment in the proportion of 11-1.On the second count, Dindial was indicted for sexual activity with the same child by way of kissing her; but during their nearly three-hour deliberations, the jury again found him not guilty, albeit by a 10-2 proportion.Both offences were alleged to have occurred on October 3, 2016 at a community in Demerara, and Dindial was said to be then in his late 40s.After the verdict was handed down, Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall told Dindial that he had been found not guilty and was free to go. Released from the shackles, Dindial gleefully exited the courtroom and was escorted out on his path to freedom.Dindial had been represented by Attorney-at-law Adrian Thompson, while State Prosecutor Shawnette Austin had led the prosecution. This was the first case to be tried at the new Sexual Offences Court, which was launched at the High Court on November 14.At that launch, it was highlighted by Acting Chancellor JusticeYonette Cummings-Edwards that over the last two sessions of the Demerara Assizes, the statistics have shown that more than 50 per cent of the cases involved sexual offences.“So if half of the list comprised sexual offences, it meant that the other indictable offences…took second place…that is something we have to address,” she highlighted.The Supreme Court of Judicature hopes to take the Sexual Offences Court model to the other two counties – Berbice and Essequibo – in an effort to reduce the increased incidents of such cases.last_img read more

We missed too many chances! Arsenal criticised by Arsene Wenger despite Palace win

first_imgArsene Wenger called for a greater cutting edge upfront from his Arsenal side despite earning a hard fought 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez, the latter with the help of an outstretched boot from Damien Delaney, scored either side of a Joel Ward strike to clinch victory in an absorbing London derby.The Gunners were vastly improved from their dismal defeat to West Ham last weekend, but Wenger issued a plea for a more clinical side to avoid such a pulsating affair.“We missed many chances today and that’s the regret of the day,” said the Gunners boss.“I think a very fit Sanchez scores two or three goals today but he still found the resources to get a very important one.”Arsenal were abject against the Hammers which left many questioning their credibility to mount a serious title challenge this season, and Wenger was delighted with the collective response from his side against an impressive Palace outfit.He added: “I’m very pleased because there was a football aspect in the quality of our game and mental aspect to see how we would respond to a big disappointment like last week.“At the end of the game we did well to dig in and defend. It was very important.”last_img read more

FARMER AGREES NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ESB UPGRADE WORK ON HIS LAND

first_imgA DONEGAL sheep farmer has agreed before the High Court not to interfere with the carrying out of electricity line upgrade works on his land.The court heard the line is of vital importance in supplying electricity supply for the whole of Donegal.The ESB and Eirgrid plc last week sought injunctions preventing Patrick Gallagher, Galdonagh, Manorcunningham, from interfering with or obstructing the work as well as orders requiring him to remove or remedy any obstructions which have been placed on the land at Listak. Yesterday, Mr Gallagher undertook before Mr Justice Paul Gilligan to allow the ESB onto his lands and not to interfere with the work.The court heard the works are needed on a 110kw power line and if not done could affect the entire electricity supply in Donegal.The Irish Independent reports that Mr Gallagher, representing himself, said he had been in dispute with the ESB over compensation.He said he was entitled such compensation from the ESB from work done on the lands in the 1990’s and also claimed there had been damage to his land during previous such works.The court heard it had been agreed outstanding issues over compensation would go to arbitration.The case was adjourned to June.FARMER AGREES NOT TO INTERFERE WITH ESB UPGRADE WORK ON HIS LAND was last modified: April 10th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ESBfarmerHIGH COURTlast_img read more
