soldiers sues State
A 35-year-old man, who was left
with a broken jaw after he was
allegedly ambushed by two soldiers
in east Port-of-Spain last week, has
taken legal action against the State,
seeking compensation for his injuries.
Leon King, of Paradise Heights, Mor-
vant, claimed he was attacked, beaten
and robbed as he was about to visit his
seven-year-old daughter at George
Street, Port-of-Spain, last week Tues-
In a pre-action protocol letter sent
by his attorneys, King stated he intend-
ed to seek compensation for assault
The letter from King s lawyer, Varun
Debideen, was sent last Friday to the
Office of the Attorney General, which
represents members of the protective
services in their official capacity. It was
also delivered on Wednesday to Chief
of Defence Staff Major Gen Kenrick
In the letter, which was obtained by
the T&T Guardian, King is claiming
that around 4.30 am he was about to
enter the stairwell at his former wife s
apartment building when he was con-
fronted by soldiers patrolling the hous-
He said when he told them the reason
for his early-morning visit, they accused
him of lying and told him to lie down
on a flight of stairs.
King said as he was about to comply,
one of them struck him twice in the
face with a gun.
When he fell over, he said, the two
soldiers began violently prodding his
back with the barrels and butts of their
assault rifles while searching his pock-
ets.He is also claiming that before they
left, the soldiers took $225 which they
had emptied from his pocket, leaving
him with only his two cellphones.
King was warded at the Port-of-
Spain General Hospital for most of last
week and was discharged on Monday.
The incident was one of several
reports of abuse from residents of east
Port-of-Spain since soldiers began
patrolling their communities following
the murder of their colleague Lance
Cpl Kayode Thomas on June 29.
A senior officer attached to the Mil-
itary Investigations Unit, based at Reg-
iment Headquarters, Knox Street, Port-
of-Spain, confirmed they were
investigating several cases of abuse.
In the letter, Debideen said he advised
King to report the incident to police
for a criminal probe to be launched.
"An end must be found to this type
of behaviour by officers," Debideen said.
He also asked the AG s office to
respond within seven days. No response
had been received up to late yesterday.
An autopsy report on the body of
Moruga father Francis Sampson have
left more questions than answers, as
it shows that he died from smoke and
On Wednesday, Francis, 59, of Moru-
ga Road, Bois Jean Jean, was burned
inside his Nissan AD Wagons at Medina
Trace, Penal Rock Road in Basse Terre.
His charred corpse was found strapped
into the driver s seat and a post mortem
found no blunt force injuries, stab or
gun shots wounds to suggest a strug-
gle.DNA testing on the remains was not
needed, as his wife Terry-Ann Sampson
identified him through the shape of his
head, feet and knees at the Forensic
Science Centre yesterday.
Despite the findings by forensic
pathologist Dr Hughvon des Vignes,
police have not given up the murder
theory, owing to the strange circum-
stances surrounding his death. Inves-
tigators are now trying to figure out
why Sampson did not try to escape
from the burning car.
A 20-year-old relative remained in
police custody up to late yesterday as
they said he was assisting in an inves-
An hour after Sampson s body was
found, the relative reported to Moruga
police that he had been a passenger in
the car and while they were driving
along the Penal Rock Road, they were
blocked by a black Nissan Frontier.
He said three men got out and robbed
them and he escaped into the bush,
but was followed and beaten with a
shovel. As the men drove off, he said,
he saw the car on fire. The relative told
police that after the incident, he went
home to shower and relax.
Noting that the area was well known
for marijuana plantations, police said
Sampson could have also been a victim
of drug dealers.
Man found dead in car died
from smoke inhalation
