Why weren’t provisions made for them?”“Here it is that a man walks free because these witnesses, in fear, may have left the country. Now a mother is without a son and a son without a father because of a sloppy system.”Kaieteur News understands that the two key witnesses are Nalifa Dookie and Rondel Marks, who relatives say are still around and available to testify.“The system has enough resources to achieve things, but it’s slackness and laziness all around. No effort was placed into this case.”Two weeks after the matter was discharged, Director of Public Prosecutions, Shalimar Ali-Hack, had initiated steps to reopen the case.The DPP had signed a letter in which she requested that the presiding Magistrate produce all the depositions that were taken during the Preliminary Inquiry into the murder.“I will look at them and once all of the witnesses who gave statements to the police did not testify, I can advise that the Magistrate reopen the case,NFL Jerseys China, just like what was done in the Carlyle Barton matter,” the DPP told this newspaper.Yesterday,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Davis’s relatives lamented the fact that since the DPP’s move, there appears to be no urgency on the part of the police to secure the witnesses testimony.One of the witnesses,Cheap Jerseys From China, Dookie, who is said to be the former partner of Jagdeo, has reportedly left the jurisdiction and police have almost ruled out any possibility of her testifying in the matter.But Marks, who is also said to be an eyewitness to the murder, is still around.“The witnesses are around. We have seen the witnesses,” a relative told Kaieteur News yesterday.The relative said that they have been in constant contact with the police,NFL Jerseys China, but they get the impression that the investigators are not too keen to proceed with the matter.However, a top police official dismissed this perception.The official said that they have been in contact with one of the witness with a view to getting him to testify.“For the past two months we have been in contact with him. We have not shelved this matter. It’s just a matter of persuading the witnesses to feel comfortable to testify,” the official explained.Should the witness agree to testify, the police will certainly re-arrest Jagdeo and reopen the Preliminary Inquiry, the official assured.
