Foster homes suggested for child in Reeaz Khan saga
June 11, 2004
Attorney-General (AG) Doodnauth Singh yesterday suggested two foster homes where the 13-year-old, who is involved in a controversial sexual relationship with city businessman, Reeaz Khan could be sent.
The AG has also been granted leave by Justice BS Roy to intervene in the habeas corpus proceedings currently before that judge.
Attorney Nigel Hughes, counsel for the 13-year-old's mother, has since requested a report on the condition of and security arrangements in place at the homes recommended by the AG.
Meanwhile, authorities have seized a cellular phone found on the person of the child after she had been placed under police protection. On Monday, she had been body-searched at the High Court but the cellular phone had not been discovered at that time, Stabroek News understands.
The matter has been adjourned to 11.30 am today.
Contempt of court proceedings against Khan are still scheduled for Monday.
