While the curfew imposed in Barbados after the onset of coronavirus (COVID-19) will be relaxed come Monday, Rackesh Kishmar Oneal Grant will be on a special 12-hour curfew.

The 22-year-old, of Lower Carters Gap, Christ Church, pleaded not guilty that on April 28, he did contravene Paragraph 21 of the Emergency Management (COVID-19) Curfew (No. 3) Directive 2020, that there being a curfew imposed in Barbados requiring every person to remain indoors between April 15 and midnight on May 3, he remained outdoors at 12:45 p.m. along the Tom Adams Highway without a reasonable excuse.

He also denied driving a car without a valid licence and that the car did not have insurance on the same date.

Grant further denied that he used a cell phone to send the message: “Tell your uncle right, that whenever I see he I starting he and nah talk no more. I swear to God on my mother’s grave, I gain . . . . my knife in he for what he went around Janelle with. Tell he I say so and whoever wanna get in, he brother, your father, anybody could get in. I swear pun my life,” to Ricardo Clarke, sometime between February 18 and April 7.
