APPOINTMENT OF DIRECTORS
Two men, who spent ten years
awaiting trial for the killing of a
retired school teacher, were yesterday
sentenced for their crime.
But they will be released in five
months as the sentencing judge
deducted the time they already spent
in prison from their 12 year jail term.
Tesfa Jones and Ramesh Nicholas
Ali previously pleaded guilty to
manslaughter and Justice Norton Jack,
presiding at the Hall of Justice, in
Port-of-Spain, had deferred sentenc-
ing to yesterday.
The prisoners were jointly charged
with two women---cousins Shelly Ann
Anganoo and Nadia Pooran---for mur-
der of Ralphy Ramcharan on March
Ramcharan, 41, was picked up by
the two women at Dino s Bar, Curepe
before he was robbed and killed.
His body was found submerged in
the mangrove near the flyover in
Anganoo and Pooran pleaded guilty
in 2008 and were each sentenced to
serve 20 years by Justice Alice Yorke-
Ramcharan, of Debe, was stabbed
with a pair of scissors and beaten on
the head with a wheel spanner.
An autopsy confirmed that he sus-
tained 54 injuries during the attack.
During their trial in 2008, the court
heard that Ramcharan dropped off his
wife and cousin at Grand Bazaar, Val-
sayn before going to St Augustine
where he taught classes.
That day Ramcharan s classes were
postponed and he went to a bar in
After spending time with the
women at the bar, Ramcharan left and
they followed him to his car. The trio
were joined by Ali and Jones.
Ramcharan was robbed him and
forced into the backseat of his car.
He was tied up, stripped and
dumped in a pond in Barataria.
The court heard that Pooran and
Anganoo also took off their clothes
and dived into the pond to ensure he
was dead, before they fled the scene
in Ramcharan s car. The burnt car was
later found in Wallerfield.
The Appeal Court reduced
Anganoo s sentence by five years
because of the lesser role she played
in the killing.
Minister of Transport Stephen
Cadiz says he will be going to
Parliament to have the Motor
Vehicle and Road Traffic Bill
passed soon and it will trans-
form the Licensing Division.
Cadiz was speaking at a road
safety news conference and pres-
entation ceremony at the Ministry
of Transport, Wrighston Road.
The conference was in commem-
oration of World Day of Remem-
brance for road traffic victims.
He said the authorities would
be cracking down on the hours
young drivers use vehicles, and
drunk driving will not be toler-
ated, nor anyone driving a vehicle
for hire with any recorded level
of alcohol in their system.
Cadiz also said all five seatbelts
in vehicles will have to be fastened
if there are passengers, and if pos-
sible a bicycle lane will be estab-
lished during certain hours.
In addition, he said: "We are
going to have a crash investigative
unit. We need to determine what
causes these accidents. It will give
us an opportunity to understand
what is going on on the roads."
Cadiz also said a study was
necessary to see what the proper
speed limit should be.
On average, close to 200 people
are killed on the roads each year,
according to data from the Police
High Commissioner of Aus-
tralia Ross Tysoe said the Trans-
port Accident Commission of
Victoria had made road-safety
campaign materials available to
traffic authorities in the
Tysoe also said discussions
have begun between the
Caribbean Public Health Agency
and Australia s Monash University
Accident Research Centre on col-
laboration in establishing a
Caribbean road safety innovation
platform as a major public health
He said Australia was one of
28 countries that had compre-
hensive road safety laws on the
World Health Organisation s key
risk factors: drinking and driving,
speeding, failing to use a motor-
cycle helmet and child restraints.
