Public continues to express outrage over dismissal of charges

Public continues to express outrage over dismissal of charges

As the public outcry continues following the shocking dismissal of the case involving the water street businessman Rondy Jagdeo who is accused of murdering biker Kurt Davis and the way he hurriedly left the court.

While businessman Rondy Jagdeo remains a free man this evening the ministry of home affairs is paying keen interest in the matter. The witnesses failing to show up in court during the preliminary inquiry was the basis for the chief magistrate dismissing the case.

Since then there has been a public outcry by citizens who lashed out at the police for doing very little to protect witnesses that were expected to give evidence in the matter. [see more in video]
