Those persons who were held at the Zesser Party in Kelly Village, Caroni, last Sunday morning, can expect to receive their summonses to appear in Court by the end of this week, the Police Service says.

In an official statement, the TTPS reports that the Central began compiling the relevant information and requesting summonses for the 250 persons arrested at the party, as investigations continue into the matter.

“The onus is on persons who have been charged to attend court virtually on the date stipulated on the summons,” stated Head of the Central Division, Senior Supt Curt Simon.  “Persons can contact the Chaguanas Magistrates’ Court, the Court and Process Office, Chaguanas, or their attorneys for the virtual links.”

He warned further: “In the event that defendants do not attend court, the investigators in the matter will be seeking to obtain warrants for their arrests, to have them brought before the court.”

More than 250 persons were held at a Zesser Party in Kelly Village, Caroni, on Sunday morning, in violation of the Public Health Ordinance Regulations. 

The operation which led to their arrest was headed by Central Division Police along with other units of the TTPS, including Special Operations Response Team (SORT), the Multi-Operational Police Section (MOPS), and the Anti-Gang Unit.
