THE absence yesterday of the Number Two accused implicated in the George Bacchus murder, resulted in an adjournment of the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the murder of the self-confessed, so-called death squad informant.

On the last occasion, Magistrate Bertlyn Reynolds, who is presiding, had scheduled the PI to continue at 10:30 hrs yesterday. But some two hours after the scheduled time, Debra Douglas did not arrive at the Court.

Assistant Superintendent Richard Lowe, who is presenting the Prosecution's case, related that the woman was on her way from the women's prison in New Amsterdam, Berbice. But after waiting for sometime, attorney-at-law Mr Vic Puran asked for the adjournment.

Puran is appearing for two of the three accused, Douglas and Fabian 'Fabie' Jessop. Lawyer Mr Glenn Hanoman is appearing on behalf of the Number One accused, Delon 'Fat Boy' Reynolds, handyman of the Bacchus family.

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 will continue on Monday, August 23.
