Richard Arthur remanded to Dodds


Share post:

A former Barbados Labour Party candidate was remanded to prison after appearing on an ammunitions charge at the Holetown Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
Richard Seymour Arthur, of Maynards, St Peter, was read the indictable charge of having 102 rounds of ammunition in his possession on January 31, without permission, contrary to the Firearms Act.
Arthur, 50, the younger brother of Opposition Leader Owen Arthur, was not required to plead to the indictable charge, and was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison at Dodds, by Magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne.
He is scheduled to return to the same court on February 27 but his attorney Randall Belgrave indicated to the court he would be applying to the High Court for bail for his client.
A medium sized crowd gathered outside the St James court from as early as 9 a.m. yesterday waiting for a glimpse of the former candidate for St Lucy.
He appeared just after 11 a.m. and his time in court was less than two minutes before he was remanded.
