One of the woman’s attorneys, Kay Bacchus-Browne, said that a letter was sent on Monday, March 17, to Commissioner of Police Keith Miller, pointing out these concerns.

“I am worried for her safety, in the midst of all the politics associated with this case, to have her on the beat. I am concerned,” said Bacchus-Browne.

She also informed SEARCHLIGHT that they had planned to appeal Justice Gertel Thom’s ruling.

On Tuesday, March 4, Justice Gertel Thom said that she found “no arguable grounds for a review” of the decision of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) to discontinue rape charges against Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves.

“We are very confident. There are at least 20 grounds for appeal,” said Bacchus-Browne, when she spoke to SEARCHLIGHT earlier this week.

The appeal should have been filed yesterday. (KJ)
