Police witness absent from Rajesh Sahadeo arms PI
March 6, 2003
The Preliminary Inquiry into the charges against Rajesh Sahadeo, one of the persons held after the `Good Hope arms find’, was on Tuesday deferred due to absence of a police witness.
Sahadeo, of Lot 16 Bel Air Village, Georgetown, was arrested on December 4 last year following the discovery of a vehicle at Good Hope with a large arms cache. Three men, alleged to have been in the vehicle, have since been charged for a series of weapons offences.
Sahadeo was later charged for the unlawful possession of a .45 pistol and two empty .45 magazines. He pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $200,000 bail for both offences.
Magistrate Maxwell Edwards was told that the witness was absent and a request was made by the prosecution for a deferral until next Friday.
Edwards was however unsatisfied and set an earlier date for continuance. The matter is now fixed for Monday.
Sahadeo’s attorney Glenn Hanoman told the court that he was eager to proceed with the case.
