Trinidad Express / The man charged by police in connection with the kidnapping of San Fernando businessman Gregory Laing was denied bail when he appeared in the Port of Spain Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
Jester Superville, 29, appeared before acting Chief Magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle charged with being in possession of $2,500 which formed part of the proceeds delivered as a ransom payment for Laing’s safe release.
The offence was alleged to have taken place on July 1, at his Picton Road, Laventille, home.
Superville was not called upon to plead as the charge was laid indictably. Police prosecutor Insp Wayne Mohammed said the prosecution was objecting to bail, since the investigation into Laing’s kidnapping on June 29, was still ongoing and based on the outcome of that investigation, additional charges may be laid against the accused.
Superville was reminded by the magistrate of his right to apply to a High Court judge for bail. He will next appear in court on August 4.
