Three women who allegedly attempted to bribe a Police Officer to assist their relatives who were arrested as part of a criminal investigation, have found themselves facing the Court.
The Courtroom of Magistrate Judy Latchman learnt today that on the 1st October at the Brickdam Police Station, the three women allegedly offered a Police Sergeant the money to release their three relatives who had been arrested following the discovery of an illegal weapon.
43-year-old Pamela Gobin, 36-year-old, Annesa Maddison and 27-year-old Latoya Tappin stood together in Court today and denied the allegations.
According to a Police report, on the day in question, Gobin offered the Police Sergeant $200,000 to release her son, Mario Persaud from custody and not allow the investigation to continue against him.
On the same day, Latoya Tappin offered the Policeman $120,000 to release her boyfriend,Kevin Dickie, from custody.
The other woman, Annessa Maddison, offered the same Police Sergeant $200,000 to release her brother, Kirk Maddison from custody and to no longer continue any investigation against him.
The Prosecutor is contending that the women were attempting to pervert the course of justice with their offers. The Police Sergeant caused the three women to be arrested and charged.
The three women who arrived at Court together were each granted bail in the sum of $200,000 each and ordered to return to Court on the 10th October for the start of their trial.
