13 held over plot to kill State witness


    13 men, wanted in connection with a plot to murder a state witness, have been arrested.

    Police say the plan was to kill the witness as he exited a magistrates’ court yesterday.

    However, officers took up “strategic positions” in and around the court between the period 8am and 6pm and carried out surveillance.

    This led to arrest of seven men from St. Joseph, three from Maracas/St. Joseph, one from St. Augustine, one from Curepe and one from Santa Cruz.

    The four vehicles used by the men were found near the court and seized.
