A police officer who was charged
with drunk driving 12-years ago, long
before the breathalyser was intro-
duced, was yesterday freed of the
charge and is now contemplating filing
a case of malicious prosecution against
Police Constable Shazad Hosein, 43,
of Penal, was also freed of a charge of
disorderly behaviour stemming out of
the same incident.
He was found guilty of careless driv-
ing but Magistrate Taramatee Ramdass,
who deliberated over the matter in the
San Fernando Fifth Court, agreed with
submissions of the officer s attorney
Kevin Ratiram, to reprimand and dis-
charge him on that charge so that no
conviction would be recorded against
The charges stemmed from an inci-
dent on January 8, 2003, when Hosein
collided with a parked vehicle belonging
to Ag ASP Harold Seedarie outside the
San Fernando Police Station where
Hosein was attached to at the time. The
arresting officer alleged that Hosein was
driving under the influence of alcohol.
The court heard on that day Ag
Inspector Edward Levia was on duty
and standing in the front yard of the
CID office located on Harris Promenade
when he observed Hosein reversing his
car, PAR 9381, and it collided with the
parked vehicle, PBE 6305, belonging to
During the hearing Levia testified
that Hosein then drove forward,
switched off the car and exited. He said
Hosein began staggering towards the
main entrance of the CID and he over-
heard him tell PC Curt Simon he had
just struck a car and, "If I bounce a car,
I go pay for it."
Levia said he informed Hosein of his
actions and got a similar reaction caus-
ing him to ask if he was drinking when
he detected an aroma from his breath.
He said Hosein told him he was drinking
some beers but that was not his busi-
In his evidence, Levia said DMO Dr
Keith Seelochan was called to the station
to conduct a breath test but Hosein
refused to cooperate. He said he also
had to assist Hosein to prevent him
from falling. Levia subsequently charged
Hosein for drunk driving and disorderly
The other charge for careless driving
was laid by Cpl Richard Dowridge.
Dowridge testified that Hosein dic-
tated a statement because his hands
were shaking and he refused to sign
Hosein also took the witness box in
his own defence. While he admitted
the accident did occur, he said he was
reversing upon directions from police
photographer PC Raghoo and denied
that he was staggering or that he was
intoxicated at the time.
He said Levia hurled abusive state-
ments at him and denied he made any
statement to Levia.
Hosein also alleged Seedarie cursed
him, demanded $3,000 and threatened
to "give him a case." Hosein said he
refused to pay and was later placed in
a cell and subsequently charged.
Students of the Lower Mor-
vant Government Primary
School believe they will soon be
evicted from their rented accom-
modation over outstanding rent
Some of the 300 students
attending the school, joined by
their parents, held a protest yes-
terday along the Lady Young
Road, Morvant, hoping to receive
assistance from the Ministry of
Members of the Parent
Teacher s Association (PTA) said
the church was not an ideal loca-
tion for the students.
After the school was demol-
ished, the students were placed
at the nearby Church of the Rock
on the Lady Young Road.
"They said in nine months we
will have a new school but that
was two years ago. Nothing was
done," said assistant secretary of
the PTA, Precious Aaron.
Aaron said the school was
owing the church money for rent.
"We have to pay rent to stay
there and we are owing money
to the church. I don t know how
much but we might get put out
anytime," she said.
Aaron said the children would
like to see their school rebuilt.
"So the children will be com-
fortable in their environment and
we want a crossing guard for the
students," she said.
She said sometimes there was
no water at the church and the
air-conditioning unit did not
"It s children you re dealing
with and sometimes things could
be broken. There is no place for
them to run about comfortably
and there is a car park outside.
It is not suitable for the children,"
An official at the Ministry of
Education said they were aware
of the circumstances surrounding
the school but denied that there
was a rent debt to the church.
