11 suspects to be released in plot to kill state witness


    Only two out of 13 persons will remain in custody for an alleged plot to kill a state witness.

    This was confirmed by senior police officers in the Northern Division, since there was not sufficient evidence to charge the other 11 suspects.

    Police say the plan was to kill the witness as he exited a Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, but officers took up ‘strategic positions’ in and around and court and carried out surveillance leading to the 13 arrests.

    According to the Newsday, most of the persons arrested were interviewed by the OCIU and other units, with only two remaining in custody.

    Officers also indicated that one of the two may be charged for murder, and another could be put on an ID parade.
