Charge filed; out-of-court settlement ignored

Dear Editor,

An agreement from a Justice of the Peace which was accepted last week allegedly at the request of the police in Region 2 as settlement in a road accident has now been rejected with the driver of a hire- car having to face a charge for dangerous driving.

For whatever reason, the police did not prosecute the driver from the inception ‒ the accident occurred some two weeks ago ‒ but a charge was filed recently.
The justice system will be all the better for the stamping out of illegal practices.

Yours faithfully,
Baliram Persaud
