THE nephew of George Bacchus and a relative of the Number One accused both completed their evidence yesterday, at the continuation of the Preliminary Inquiry (PI), into the murder of the self-confessed, so-called death squad informant.

Last Wednesday Magistrate Bertlyn Reynolds, who is presiding, had ordered the two to be back in Court yesterday to be cross-examined by the Mr Glenn Hanoman, who was absent from the last hearing. Hanoman is appearing on behalf of Reynolds, handyman of the Bacchus family.

On that occasion Derick Prince, Bacchus's nephew and Otis Quires, a relative of Delon ‘Fat Boy’ Reynolds, the Number One accused, had completed their evidence-in-chief and were cross-examined by attorney-at-law Mr Vic Puran.

Puran is appearing for two of the three accused, Fabian ‘Fabie’ Jessop and Debra ‘Debbie’ Douglas.

The Prosecution is being led by Assistant Superintendent Richard Lowe.

The trio is charged jointly with the June 24 unlawful killing of George Bacchus, popularly known as ‘Bombalay’ at his Princes Street home. The second charge is alleging that between June 22 and 24, they counselled, procured and commanded Reynolds to commit the crime. The PI continues tomorrow.
