A suspended policeman already
on bail for an alleged taser gun
attack on three civilians appeared
in court yesterday charged with
possession of a pistol and three
rounds of ammunition.
Constable Veda Persad was grant-
ed $100,000 bail by Princes Town
magistrate Debra Quintyne after
she overruled an objection for bail
by the prosecution.
Persad, 30, is alleged to have been
found with a Taurus .380 pistol and
ammunition on October 10 at Cedar
Hill Estate Road, Princes Town.

or is a risk to society.
Saying the charges were of a
non-violent nature, Valere said Per-
sad should not be denied bail merely
because of the 2011 charges.
Asked by the magistrate the status
of the 2011 matter, the prosecutor
said he does not know why it has
Overruling the objection, the mag-
istrate said she did not think Persad
should be incarcerated since the 2011
case has not even started.
The magistrate also told the pros-
ecutor to work on the file so it could
be sent to the Director of Public
Prosecution for a state attorney to
be appointed in the matter.
Valere also inquired whether fin-
gerprint impressions were lifted off
the pistol since that is particularly
important to the defence.
The matter was adjourned to

Harripersad, of Harmony Hall, Gasparillo,

Roopchand late Tuesday evening.
Court prosecutor Sgt Parasan Ramsumair objected
to bail because the prosecution wanted to have a
trace done to determine whether Harripersad had
previous convictions or pending matters.
He was remanded into custody to tomorrow.
