The proceedings concerning the motion to release Bruneau Laurette on bail will resume tomorrow at 1pm. At around 3pm this Wednesday, Magistrate Jade Ngan Chai King decided to end the hearing.
The prosecution is represented by Principal State Counsel Roshan Varma Santokhee while Bruneau Laurette is defended by Shakeel Mohamed and Rouben Mooroongapillay, among others.
Police officer Rajaram was called to the witness stand. He announced that the police objected to the release of the activist. The three reasons given were that he might abscond, interfere with witnesses and tamper with evidence.
This Wednesday, Magistrate Jade Ngan has also ordered that Bruneau Laurette be held in a cell until tomorrow.
Officer Rajaram also confirmed that no trace of ADN of Bruneau Laurette was found on the drug parcel and on the firearms seized which are fake ones.
As a reminder, since the report of the FSL did not identify any synthetic drugs following the alleged seizure of drugs from the activist, the provisional charge of possession of synthetic drugs brought against him was struck out in court.
