Two of the five accused in the robbery of Land Court Judge Nicola Pierre and husband Mohammed Chan were today found not guilty by Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul and the other three will be sentenced on June 23.
Premnauth Samaroo and Anthony David were freed, while Dameion Millington, Nicholas Narine and Warren McKenzie were found guilty.
The quintet had been slapped with five charges, two counts of robbery under arms, two counts of felonious wounding and one count of discharging a loaded firearm at a security guard.
Making her ruling at the Better Hope Community Centre Ground where Sparendaam Magistrate’s Court cases are temporarily being heard, the magistrate found that there was not enough evidence against Samaroo and David and told them that they were free to go.
Millington, Narine and McKenzie she found guilty of all five charges. The three will return to court on June 23 for sentencing.
The incident occurred almost a year ago on the night of July 8 when five men who were armed with guns entered the home of Justice Nicola Pierre and her husband Mohammed Chand and robbed them of cash and articles amounting to over $3.6 million.
