The preliminary inquiry of Linden Lestrade, who is accused of shooting with intent to cause grievous bodily harm to Greg Joseph outside the Krazy Kokonuts Nightclub on October 3, 2009, continued today.
Joseph continued his testimony on the witness stand against Lestrade – the son of former Police Commissioner Matthias Lestrade.
Lestrade was represented by Attorney-at-Law Zena Dyer.
According to a previous hearing prior to the commencement of the preliminary inquiry, the prosecution will present four witnesses in the matter.
Lestrade was granted bail in the sum of $50,000 with two sureties on October 5, 2009 following the alleged incident.
Joseph’s family has commented publicly, expressing their dissatisfaction with Lestrade being bailed.
In the wake of these comments, Deputy Police Commissioner Cyril Carette had denied that the police were involved in any cover up to protect the former police commissioner’s son.
The preliminary inquiry began on February 1, 2010.
