The proprietor of the Diamond Hotel was yesterday placed on $35,000 bail after he allegedly assaulted a police officer and behaved disorderly during a search of the establishment following reports that the man had seized the passports of entertainers and threatened them.

It is alleged that Freeman Fordyce on November 9th at George Street, Werk-en-Rust, assaulted Prem Narine. A second charge alleged that Fordyce, on the same date, behaved disorderly in a public place. 

Fordyce denied both of the charges when he appeared before Senior Magistrate Leron Daly at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court…..
