Trinis appear in court in Anderson Peters incident

The scene outside the court in the city where the Trinis made their appearances

The six Trinidadian suspects involved in the Anderson Peters beating are currently in court facing a charge of Causing Harm to the NO 1 world rated Javelin thrower.

The suspects arrived on the court precincts at around 8:55 am under heavy police escort and were led to the holding cell.

Within minutes they were led inside the almost empty court house that had a few police officers inside.

Approximately, five minutes later, lead defense attorney Cajeton Hood arrived alongside Dylan Charles who was the first local attorney that made initial contact with the suspect when they were held at Central Police Station.

Five minutes after arrival, both Attorneys Hood and Charles were seen leaving the open court and heading into the private Chambers of Chief Magistrate Teddy St Louis.

They were soon joined in the Chambers by attorney Derick Sylvester who is representing Anderson Peters in civil proceedings brought against the Trinidadians.

Speculation is rife that the lawyers are engaged in discussion on a proposal being advanced by Hood for a diplomatic and legal resolution to the case without a long drawn out legal battle.

The lawyers have been inside the Chambers for over half-an-hour with no signs of coming out soon.

The Chief Magistrate is yet to call the court to order.
