The opening of the new $20 mil-
lion South Park Cinemas 10 hit
another snag yesterday as the mag-
istrate hearing the application for its
licences requested additional docu-
ments before it can be processed.
As a result, the cineplex at the South
Park development, San Fernando, will
not be opened today as advertised.
In the San Fernando Magistrate s
Court yesterday, Deputy Chief Mag-
istrate Mark Wellington said he had
serious concerns and wanted to see
certain documents from the Fire Serv-
ices and Town and Country Planning
The Caribbean Cinemas cineplex
was shut down by the police on
August 21, two days after it was offi-
cially opened because no cinema
licences were granted.
George Borges, Caribbean Cinemas
director, made the application for ten
cinema and one exhibitor licences
about three weeks ago.
When the matter came up yester-
day, Borges s attorney Romney Thomas
told Wellington: "We are ready."
However, the magistrate said: "You
all are not ready."
Wellington told the attorney when
he passed by the cineplex yesterday
morning he observed that work was
still ongoing at the site.
Thomas, however, insisted there
was absolutely no work going on.
The magistrate said he observed
buildings being constructed and
equipment, including a crane on the
"Fire made some recommenda-
tions, were they met? Town and
Country made recommendations,
were they met? asked the magistrate.
The attorney said the recommen-
dations were all met. He also handed
over certain documents to the court.
Wellington also noted that the
address on the application was incor-
rect. Wellington said: "I need to see
something from Fire and Town and
The magistrate adjourned the mat-
ter to October 2.
One of four suspects held hours
after the murder of a 52-year-old
Diego Martin man on Monday
morning, is claiming his hand was
broken by police while under inter-
The 20-year-old suspect of Four
Roads, Diego Martin, remained under
police guard at the Port-of-Spain
General Hospital up to late yesterday.
He is expected to undergo surgery
today to repair the damaged limb.
Speaking through his attorney
Faeroe Ali, the suspect, who cannot
be named because he is yet to face
charges, said shortly after being
arrested on Monday morning, he and
his three friends were taken to the
Four Roads Police Station.
The four men, who were arrested
after a photograph of the victim s
body was recorded on their cell-
phones, claimed they were taken to
a secluded room where they were
beaten by a group of police.
The suspect s hand broke during
the beating which lasted several
hours. He was then taken to hospital
for treatment while his friends
remained detained at the station.
Besides the allegation of police
brutality, Ali also claimed his clients
were not allowed to call an attorney
until Wednesday. He said he would
wait until the suspects were charged
or released before pursuing the mat-
ter further through a civil lawsuit.
According to reports, Steven
Khan, of Tomato Trace, Bagatelle,
left home around 9.30 pm on Sun-
day to lime with friends at Simeon
Road, Petit Valley.
Around 1.30 am the next day his
body was found at Dillon Street,
Diego Martin. Less than two hours
later the suspects were arrested while
driving along the Lady Young Road,
Khan s Mitsubishi Libero station
wagon was found abandoned at a
gas station in Morvant Junction.
No answer yet from PM to Kublalsingh so...
In five days, Dr Wayne Kublals-
ingh will begin his second hunger
strike if the Prime Minister fails to
respond to the Highway Re-route
Movement s (HRM) letter on the
Debe to Mon Desir section of the
Solomon Hochoy Highway exten-
This will be his second hunger strike
since Government began construction
of the highway. It is expected to begin
at noon on Wednesday.
Kublalsingh and around 20 mem-
bers of the HRM marched in a rec-
tangle opposite the side entrance of
the Office of the Prime Minister, St

to stop construction of the section of
the highway and to abide by the Arm-

The chants attracted a few spec-
tators from the OPM but the person
whose attention the HRM has been
trying to engage has remained silent.
Hunger strike still on
Taramatee Chaitoo, a resident
of Roots Avenue, Fyzabad, who
said the highway was expected to
pass through her home, cried as
she spoke about the stress on her
family and her depression at the
thought of moving.
Yesterday's protest was the first
time Chaitoo had joined protesters
She said: "I am here because I
am hoping that we don't have to
move. I have nowhere to go.
"I was born there, grew up there.
I went back there 18 years ago and
I have been there ever since.
"I am not looking forward to
moving plus this thing is really
affecting my family, my health. I
have my grandchildren there who
cry all the time, asking why we are
moving, that kind of thing."
Chaitoo said Kublalsingh had
given her hope and despite the
tears in her eyes, said she felt
better than she used to.
"I used to be in a severe
depression. I don't want to lose my
home. I don't want to leave there
and go anywhere.
"My dad never wanted to leave
either but he passed away last
year. He said he would rather die
"I don't want to lose my home. I
don't want to lose my home," she
Kenneth Sookram, who has
lived at Siparia Old Road since
1977, said before the election
Persad-Bissessar had promised
residents she would not let the
highway destroy their homes.
"She said in meetings that when
she became Prime Minister she
would not build any highway on
our property but she has failed to
honour her promise. We feel
Sookram said he was willing to
support the hunger strike.
"If that is the way we must go,
we will go that way. I hope we do
not have to go the 21 days
without an answer."
Sookram will participate in the
hunger strike for the first 24
