Police dismiss rumours of attorney’s arrest

SENIOR POLICE yesterday dismissed rumours that a warrant had been signed by a High Court judge early yesterday for the arrest of an attorney who has close ties with the United National Congress (UNC).

Early yesterday, the rumours began circulating that police armed with a warrant were on their way to the attorney’s home.

However, hours later, further information began circulating that police realised that they had the wrong address for the attorney on the warrant and had to return to Port of Spain to get a fresh warrant signed.

The attorney, when contacted by Newsday, said he had no information that a warrant had been issued for his arrest and found it strange that one had been issued for him.

Sources also revealed that the attorney’s relatives also learned of the alleged impending arrest and this brought them to tears. However, Newsday contacted several senior police who described the information as a rumour being spread by people with certain agendas.

Up until yesterday, no warrant had been issued for the arrest of the attorney and according to wellplaced sources, an investigation against the attorney is continuing apace.
