Ex-LifeSport boss in alleged murder plot
 

 
Lawyer fears for clients’ safety

Former LifeSport programme co-ordinator Rajaee Ali was among a group of six people, including a woman, who appeared in court yesterday charged with being part of a plot to assassinate radio announcer Kevaughn “Lerbz” Savory. The group was remanded into custody when they appeared before Nanette Forde-John in the Port-of-Spain Eighth Magistrate Court on a series of charges under the Anti-Gang Act related to a planned attack on Savory in Port-of-Spain last Thursday.
 
The other accused are Keshorn Dempster, Brent La Croix, Brandon Borneo, Donna Dyer and Ali’s brother, Ishmael. Ali was one of the former LifeSport officials who were probed by Ministry of Finance before the programme was shelved in July by Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

Security at the court was increased significantly for yesterday’s hearing with burly police, dressed in riot gear and armed with automatic sub-machine guns, standing guard outside the courtroom and along St Vincent Street,  Port-of-Spain, which was blocked off when the accused arrived. Ali and his co-accused were not called upon to plead to the charges as they were laid indictably.

Although they all stood stone-faced with their hands crossed while the charges were being read, their demeanour changed as they were led out of court, with some turning around to smile and blow kisses at their relatives. While their lawyer Criston J Williams accepted that his clients would only be entitled to apply for bail in 120 days, as prescribed by the legislation, he asked that they be sent to the Maximum Security Prison (MSP), Arouca, as he said he was concerned for their safety.

“It is in the interest of the welfare of the accused that they be placed in MSP,” Williams said. Forde-John made a note of Williams’s concerns but said she did not have the authority to direct prison authorities on where to place remand prisoners. The magistrate also decided to defer Williams’s bail application for the non-gang-related charges to the next court hearing later this month.

Before the case was adjourned Williams made several requests for prosecutors to disclose evidence they had gathered in their investigation, including interviews with his clients and CCTV footage of their arrests. “It is my information that one of the police officers shot at their vehicle before they were arrested,” Williams said.

He also complained that his clients were not informed of the reason for their week-long detention before they were charged yesterday. He also asked whether their cellphone conversations had been illegally recorded by police. “I am requesting copies of judges’ warrants pursuant to the Interception of Communication Act of 2010,” Williams said.

Police prosecutor Richard Taylor told Williams his requests would be urgently addressed by investigators and also promised to tender into evidence the gun and seven rounds of ammunition allegedly found in the group’s car at the next hearing. The group, who are also being represented by attorney Darryl Worrell, will reappear in court on December 22.

The charges
 Ali, 28, whose father is the head of the Jamaat-al-Muslimeen mosque in Carapo, is charged with being a gang leader. He and the others were all charged with being members of an unnamed gang. The group was also jointly charged with conspiring to murder Savory and with assisting a gang member in the commission of a gang-related act by possessing a gun and ammunition.

All, except Rajaee Ali, were charged with being in possession of an illegal gun and ammunition with the intention to use it under the direction of a gang leader. Ishmael was charged for being in possession of a gun and ammunition and for assaulting a man, identified as Gilmore Thomas, when he, Dempster, La Croix, Borneo, Ishmael and Dyer were arrested while in a car in Woodbrook last Thursday night.

Ali, who is on bail after being charged with possession of a lappe carcass during the ongoing hunting ban, was arrested on Tuesday night.

Savory responds
In a brief interview yesterday, Savory, a radio announcer with Guardian Media Ltd’s Slam 100.5FM, said he was “shocked and disturbed” by the reports. He said he had spoken to his lawyers yesterday and had been advised not to comment further. “It’s a scary thing. That’s all I can say,” the 27-year-old announcer said. Savory has had a career in media and entertainment for over ten years and currently works in both radio and television.

Last year he hosted the finals of the International Soca Monarch competition.

About the programme
In August 2011, Cabinet agreed to implementation of the LifeSport programme by the Ministry of Sport, through the Sport Company of T&T.  It was launched in June 2012 and started in August 2012. Up to the time of the audit, the programme was being run in 43 centres throughout T&T for young men 16-25.

The audit team prepared a damning report after examining the programme’s payment process, centres, co-ordinators, coaches, participants, catering services, janitorial services, maintenance of recreation grounds, refurbishment of community centres, rentals, purchases, vocational training (trade component) and EBeam Interact Ltd.

no plan B from what i see..not seeing where the money spinner will come from...cant stop the drilling though

option can very well be working out something with venezuela for the production and processing of their nat gas reserves seeing that they dont have the infrastructure (physical, commercial) to do so...

Read earlier on today a post  asking you to reveal  a mar- looks like the poster retracted the comment? Why are we so tentative to stand up for what is right and hide behind veils to protect the corruption by those we know to be wrong?

alright alright

phillip alexander. he is working very hard behind the scenes through print, social and visual media to propagate propaganda against any opposition to this gov't..rowley being his favorite for a number of reasons. a pardner of mine was approached and refused as he knows that alexander family all too well. a number of journalists have taken up alexander's offer and are part of overt and covert efforts to discredit anyone presenting resistance to this gov't

he tries to keep up the pretense that he is this patriot and objective soul but any discerning eye can see him for what he truly represents

wingmen with alot of stamina

also, well i can tell you in italy, some prefer 3 at the back as alot of defenders arent comfortable in the central 2 positions of a back 4...and as someone said above...rel rel rel stamina is needed or else you can be skinned badly...alot of discipline to make sure and come back and defend..i dont know in this age of starboy-ism if players here willing to do same...

thats y manu maybe thinking of cuadrado...excellent winger that doesnt shun his defensive duties

Good friend of mine who works in the media/advertising was offered alot of money to work on a media campaign targetting dr rowley by a certain 'activist' that used to frequent this forum. Alot of media persons on tha low are selling their pens for a little profit. He told me of one in particular whose name got called in a recent scandal. Said individual also had issues with this board at a point in time as well.

if yedlin goes to europe i highly doubt he would be retained as a defender. europe is a different breed of football and from all the highlights i have seen of him he likes to move forward. he will be converted to a winger. not a fullback.

Despite the reasons for demanding the money before-hand...it still came off as very crass, especially when we have the story of the Greece team who asked that declined their bonuses and want them to go towards building a new training facility.

I'm not a follower of GoT, but, having read comments here, I am curious. Went to Dunluce Castle some days ago and learned that it was incorporated into GoT in a modified way. Had no idea because this series has been off my radar.

However, it came up again today. Viewed the Brazil-Chile fixture at the Nook at the Giant's Causeway. Seated next to me was a family who had just come from special access to the filming site in Belfast, courtesy a relative involved with the series. They were not allowed to film aside from at one location just before exiting.

Find it interesting how much convo this series stimulates.

Man the books are even worse - there are forum threads nearly a hundred pages long (and some way over) debating theories about the characters, some of which were confirmed others not yet. The world is so rich with intrigue and dynasties that you can easily get absorbed by the drama :).

all i kno is that Dorne will b featured heavily...and u know what does go on in Dorne...put yuh kids to bed ppl

Suarez: 'I fell onto Chiellini...'
By Football Italia staff

Luis Suarez apparently told FIFA’s Disciplinary Commission he “lost my balance and hit my face” against Giorgio Chiellini.

The Uruguay striker continues to insist he did not bite Italy defender Chiellini on the shoulder, despite video evidence and photographs of the movement.

The details of the disciplinary hearing have emerged, including Suarez’s own testimony via the Associated Press.

“At that moment of impact, it forced me to bend my knees, and lost balance and ended up falling on the opponent [Chiellini].

“I slammed my face against the player [Chiellini] leaving a small bruise and sharp pain in the teeth – therefore the referee stopped the game.

“This is what happened and in no case what has been described as a bite or attempting to bite happened.


However, the Disciplinary Commission ruled the bite was “deliberate, intentional and without provocation.”

Suarez received a four-month ban from all football and suspension for nine international matches.

It was a particularly lengthy ban because this is the third time in his career that Suarez has been caught biting an opponent.

In all three cases, the player was only punished using video evidence, as the gesture escaped the attention of the referee.

Meanwhile, Suarez took to his Twitter account in order to send a message to the fans.

“Hi all, I write this post to give thanks to the outpouring of support and love I am receiving. Both myself and my family really appreciate it.

“Thank you very much for being by my side and I want all my colleagues today we support selection for the match against Colombia.”

it's unbelievable that some of these guys don't have bank accounts...smh


they wanted their money cold hard cash as they accostumed to the ghana football federation putting dem on shit with wire transfers..has happened before

their federations have a history of witholding their appearance fees and (spend it out) from them which is why cameroon, nigeria and ghana went this route..and wanted their money upfront or else...

its not greed its wanting what is due to them when the administrators have a history of 'bein on shit'

Hakeem, Tevin not so innocent, says resident
By Gyasi Gonzales

A Morvant man has come forward claiming teenage cousins Hakeem and Tevin Alexander were not as innocent as they seem and were robbing people.

And some startling details have emerged on perusing the Facebook pages of the Morvant teenagers who were killed by police on Monday.
Hakeem, 16, a Carifta Games medallist and Tevin, 15, were killed in the Chinapoo area in Morvant when officers of the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) and North Eastern Division Task Force (NEDTF) responded to reports of shootings in the area.
Police said when they arrived they were greeted with gunfire and they responded. The cousins were shot and taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital where they were pronounced dead on arrival.

Three other suspects were arrested and two guns were seized near the scene, police said.
Relatives and friends of the cousins have claimed that they were kneeling with their hands upraised when they were shot by the police.
In an interview last night by Insp Roger Alexander of the CCN TV6 programme, Beyond the Tape a man alleged that the two boys were about to kill him and it was the police in fact who saved his life.

He said, “we were up (in Chinapoo, Morvant) on a project. These four young men were liming around (he included both Hakeem and Tevin in the four).
He said, “after they went into a house and they were plotting and while I stand up now, one run up the road and after a while I saw another one run out the bush. I said it’s a policeman with a shotgun”.

He said by this time he ran into a nearby drain and took cover during which time the two teenagers and two other young men were looking for him. He said after a while he jumped out of the drain and he ended up in someone’s front porch where he was confronted by the four young men.

“I start to struggle with four of them in the gallery and one of them had a 28 (.28 pistol) and a pump (pump action shotgun) and while I was scuffling I end up getting a gun butt in my head and I end up running further in people house and a man ended up bracing me and he told me that he don’t want that in here,” he said.

The man said he remained in the house and he heard the four firing shots on the road.
The man was asked if he remembered his attackers and he replied, “yes, Hakeem the one who die and I don’t know the next one name.”

He added, “listen I identify the people that tried to shoot me and after the incident with me they ran up Zion Hill and then they got caught up with the police.”

He said, “to those who paint a picture of them boys as good I would say they are encouragers. They father can’t control them and they mother can’t control them and they was robbing people and they doing all kinds of unjust things in the village.”
