Judge warns accused ‘stuck’ in England
An accused man who claimed he was stuck in England as a result of a lack of flights due to the COVID-19 pandemic has been warned to present himself to the No. 4 Supreme Court next month or risk having a warrant issued for his arrest.
Shane Greene, of Ashby Land, Christ Church, appeared via Zoom from England yesterday, where he said he had been having difficulties in getting a flight back to Barbados.
He had been in England since last year.
Greene, along with Akem Marvon Waithe, of Greens, St George, is jointly accused that being present together with other people on September 1, 2016, they used unlawful violence and their conduct taken together was such as would cause people present to fear for their personal safety.
Waithe is solely accused of using a firearm, on the same date, without the required licence to do so. (HLE)
