Casino robbery trial due to start next week

After more than a three-week delay, a date has been set for the commencement of the trial of the three accused in the Ramada Princess Casino robbery.

It is alleged that Wayne Griffith, Junior Stewart and Andrew Blackman, while being in the company of others and armed with guns, robbed cashiers of $8,951,000, which was the property of the Princess Casino on April 29, at Providence, East Bank Demerara.

During a hearing on Friday, the defendants collected statements from the prosecution in relation to the matter.

The trial was unable to commence on July 21, after attorney Mark Conway, who is representing Stewart, indicated that a potential decision would be made that can affect the trial.

At the conclusion of the hearing on Friday, Magistrate Leron Daly adjourned the matter to September 2, when the trial is expected to begin.
