New trial starts today

Damean Dwayne Seymour is scheduled to go on trial today for the robbery of Foster’s Republix supermarket in March 2006.

In Grand Court on Thursday, Mr. Justice Seymour Panton said he was completing an order he had started the previous day, when he discharged the jury hearing the matter. He ordered that Seymour be tried by another jury at the earliest time possible.

That time was Monday, 19 February.

The first set of jurors was discharged because irrelevant and prejudicial information was communicated in their presence and then inaccurate and prejudicial information was broadcast by Cayman 27 television.

The judge said he hoped everyone had learned something from what had occurred.
