Embattled businessman Barry Dataram made yet another High Court appearance before Chief Justice Ian Chang and Justice William Ramlal yesterday.And the final submissions were made by lead attorney for Dataram, Vic Puran. Heading the prosecution is Attorney General Doodnauth Singh.According to Puran, the power to extradite rests upon the fundamental consideration that the constitution creates. There is no executive prerogative to dispose of the liberty of the individual.He added that the proceedings must be “authorised by law” and that there is no executive discretion to surrender him to a foreign government, unless that discretion is granted by law. The lawyer added that the submissions which were made by the Attorney General are not in the answer of the rule of the Order Nisi that was made in the matter.He added that it is the Attorney General’s contention that the application is “premature” and that the offender should wait on the magistrate’s ruling. Puran said that the Minister of Home Affairs already acted in authority to proceed, and the same issue is “whether any court can imply a provision into a treaty”. He added that such an attempt would be seen as interference of the doctrine.Puran defined a treaty as that which “is in its nature a contract between two nations and not a legislative act”. It does not generally affect of itself the object to be accomplished so far as its operation is “infra territorial”, adding that it is carried into execution by the sovereign power of the respective parties to the instrument.The lawyer contended that because of the 1931 Treaty that Guyana signed with the United States of America, it is an interpretation of question of fact and not one of binding precedent.The extradition regime between Guyana and the USA is determined by the fugitive offenders Act 1988, which states “A person shall not be extradited from Guyana under this Act to any…treaty territory, or be committed to, or kept in custody for the purpose of such extradition, Cheap Jerseys, unless the provision has being made…in case of a treaty territory, arrangement with that territory relating to the extradition of a fugitive.Secondly, the treaty states that the “person is extradited by the government of that territory to any other Commonwealth country or foreign territory to be dealt with for any offence committed before his aforesaid extradition under this act, without the consent of the Minister.”The lawyers contended that the Minister therefore cannot invoke the statutory power to issue the authority to proceed to the magistrate. The Minister of Home Affairs does not have jurisdiction to give the magistrate jurisdiction to commence committal proceedings.Attorney General Doodnauth Singh noted that a “person who has escaped from the jurisdiction should return to the said jurisdiction”.He further explained that it is significant that Puran draws attention to the order that was made seeking to squash what the Minister had said on the grounds that it was wrongly done.The matter was adjourned for December 10.Dataram was held earlier this year by local police on a provisional warrant of arrest pending extradition proceedings, which were requested by the United States of America.Reports are that Dataram was indicted in the USA on drug–related charges, and was rearrested at Patentia, West Bank Demerara.Reports are that Dataram had breached an order by the High Court, which states that Dataram had to report to the police station on Mondays and Fridays as which should be directed by the Commissioner of Police.But his lawyers are claiming that no such direction was given by the Commissioner of Police, which makes his arrest “null and void”.

A new witness took the stand yesterday as the trial of Delon ‘Fatboy’ Reynolds, who is accused of murdering self-confessed death squad informant George Bacchus, continued in the Supreme Court before Justice Claudette La Bennett.The state called Senior Superintendent Frederick Caesar to give evidence, and defence counsel Peter Hugh began cross-examination.Caesar was the officer in charge of the investigations into Bacchus’s death. He said that he was present when Reynolds allegedly showed the police a gun which he said he had used to shoot Bacchus. Caesar also was the person who gave instructions, during the course of the investigations, to ranks who have previously testified in the matter.Police constable Michael Phillips concluded giving evidence yesterday. His testimony on Thursday was that the accused took the police to a weapon which he said he had used to kill Bacchus.According to Phillips, on June 30, 2004, he and a party of policemen headed by Superintendent Caesar and along with Reynolds went to Lot 76 Princes Street, Lodge, (the address where Bacchus’s body was found).He added that Reynolds then took the police ranks to the back of the house, to a box where he said, “This is where I hide de gun that I use to shoot George Bacchus.”Phillips said that he received permission from his superior to search the box, Allen Craig Red Sox Jersey, and subsequently found what appeared to be a revolver.According to him, he told Superintendent Caesar, in the presence of Reynolds, that he suspected it to be the gun that Delon Reynolds had used to shoot Bacchus.He noted that he then cautioned Reynolds, letting him know his rights, and the accused replied, “Yes, this is the gun that I used to shoot George Bacchus.”He also said that he opened the firearm chambers in the presence of Reynolds, where he found what appeared to be three spent shells and one live round.The weapon, the three spent shells and the live round were tendered as evidence in court on Thursday.The matter has been adjourned until Tuesday, when Caesar will continue to give his evidence.On Monday, Justice La Bennett admitted the caution statement as evidence when the second voir dire (trial within a trial) in this matter concluded.The post mortem report on Bacchus was tendered as evidence, and there were no objections by defence counsel Peter Hugh in this regard.Earlier this month, the trial into this matter was aborted because one of the jurors was related to a witness.Bacchus was found dead in bed at his Lot 76 Princes Street home on June 24, 2004 after he had made bombshell revelations about a death squad operating in the city, for which he said he once gathered information.Funeral parlour co-owner Debra Douglas and her nephew Fabian ‘Fabie’ Jessop had been jointly charged with Reynolds for Bacchus’s murder, but they were subsequently freed due to insufficient evidence.
