Interdicted cops Power and Prevost acquitted!

Interdicted cops Power and Prevost acquitted!

Pamphill Prevost and Simon Power - the two interdicted police officers charged with theft and conspiracy to steal - have been acquitted.
Their acquittal hinged on a no-case submission which was upheld in the High Court today.

Effectively, a no-case submission is made when the defence argues that the evidence led by the Prosecution fails to support a finding of guilt and that the court should dismiss the charge.

Provost and Power’s freedom comes days after Police Sergeant Marley Sebastien was arrested and charged for allegedly perjuring himself when he testified in their trial last month.

Sergeant Marley is also charged with perverting the course of justice in that matter.

In the meantime, the acquittal also comes roughly three years after their one-time co-accused, Officer Shawn Henry was also acquitted by the court. Henry, at the time, had also successfully filed no case submission.
