A 32-year-old labourer who was charged for unlawfully wounding another at a mining operation in the interior was placed on $100,000 bail after he appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine- Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
The allegation against Lennox Primo is that on July 22 at Imbaimadai, Upper Mazaruni River, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded the virtual complainant (VC) Alex Moore.
According to the facts presented by the prosecution, on the day in question the VC along with other workers were at the backdam when the accused took a jet spray and sprayed it into the sandpit causing sand to get into the VC’s eye and an argument followed.
Subsequently the VC who left the pit and went away woke up to find himself at the hospital where he discovered lacerations at his neck.
The attorney who represented Primo informed the court that his client was placed on station bail and he has attended all of his court hearings and so he should be granted bail.
The matter will be called again on September 19.
