AFTER more than four years, September 14 was the date given yesterday in court for the conclusion of the assault trial against soca star Machel Montano and three other entertainers.
The State closed its case on April 2, but Magistrate Maureen Baboolal-Gafoor's decision had been delayed due to another round of legal arguments.
On that occasion, Montano's attorney, Dana Seetahal SC, had applied to the court to respond to State prosecutor George Busby's closing address, stating there were several inaccuracies in his submissions.
Busby, however, argued that according to law, Seetahal was not allowed to respond to his closing address as the State always had the final say in any matter before the court.
When the matter came up for hearing in the Port of Spain Seventh Magistrate's Court yesterday, Baboolal-Gafoor ruled in favour of the prosecution, denying Seetahal the opportunity to respond to Busby's address before adjourning the matter.
Montano, along with the son of the late Lord Kitchener, Kernel Roberts, Rodney "Benjai" LeBlanc and Joel "Zan" Feveck are all facing assault charges stemming from a fracas outside the Zen nightclub on Keate Street, Port of Spain, in April of 2007.
In June of that year, the four appeared before Magistrate Lianne Lee-Kim on the charges and each was granted bail in the sum of $50,000.
They were accused of assaulting Brandis Browne, Russell Pollonais, Janelle Lee-Chee and Gerard Borwin outside the club on April 26.
Montano faces an additional charge of using obscene language.
Montano, who gave ten days of evidence, denied the charges, saying he was the one being targeted by the group and they had verbally attacked him.
Roberts also testified while Feveck and LeBlanc exercised their right to not give evidenc

Trinidad is TRULY the LAUGHING STOCK of the Caribbean.

Imagine this case has taken OVER FOUR YEARS to COMPLETE.

IS TRINIDAD SERIOUS?

This case is MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE LEGAL SYSTEM in TRINIDAD.

This case should have been over four years ago. Trinidad is probably the only place in the HISTORY of MANKIND where a simple assault case has taken over four years to be completed, and where the main player in this case, WINER BOY, is basically telling the court system in that country he cannot be in court because he has to travel to do gigs.

UNBELIEVABLE!!

When AMERICA and other socalled FIRST WORLD COUNTRIES TALK ABOUT BANANA REPUBLICS, TRINIDAD is a CLASSIC CASE of that title.

YUHHHHH SEEEEEEE MEEEEEEE

What YOU DON'T GET is that WE ALREADY KNOW HE'S INNOCENT but in all FAIRNESS, we must let DUE PROCESS PREVAIL.

Since we ARE ALREADY AWARE OF MACHEL JESUS MONTANO'S INNOCENCE, it would have been unbecoming to deprive THE WORLD and HIS FANS of his GOD GIVEN TALENT.

Could you IMAGINE how CRESTFALLEN and MORTIFIED his FANS would be if DEPRIVED of seeing THE GREAT MACHEL JESUS MONTANO perform?

Ahh.... TRULY SAD and DISHEARTENING would such an instance have been.

SO, that is the REASON the ESTEEMED COURTS of our SWEET little island of TRINBAGO did things in the manner in which it did RATHER than play FOLLOW FASHION and do things in the manner of the OPPRESSORS.
