Superintendent Clauston Francis, Head of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), is the only witness to have testified so far in the Preliminary Inquiry (PI) into the attempted murder of Auxiliary Police Officer Curtland Jack, and the wounding with intent of two others, November 2019 at Heritage Square, Kingstown.

The P.I started at the Serious Offences Court last week Thursday and is expected to continue on July 7 when the Prosecution will call other witnesses.

Tyson Spencer, 30, of Green Hill, has been charged with the attempted murder of the Auxillary Police Officer, as well as wounding with intent, Deron Quashie of Choppins and Dwayne Peters of Kingstown.

Jack, a resident of Campden Park, has been paralysed from his shoulders down, reportedly as a result of the shooting incident at Heritage Square on November 22 last year, during which Quashie and Peters also sustained injuries.

WE understands that the Prosecution is seeking to have Jack’s evidence taken via Skype because of his medical condition.

Attorney Grant Connell is representing Spencer, while Senior Prosecutor Adolphus Delpleche leads the case for the Prosecution.

Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne presides.
