Regan Rodrigues, aka ‘Grey Boy’, Monday, has been committed to stand trial in the High Court for the murder of political activist, Courtney Crum-Ewing.
The decision was handed down by Principal Magistrate, Judy Latchman. The Magistrate lost an appeal to have a stay of execution in carrying out an court order by the DPP in the matter, as a result the Magistrate had to obey the order and commit the accused to the High Court to stand trial for the Murder of Crum-Ewing.
However, the Magistrate maintained that there is insufficient evidence to commit him to trail.
Back in 2017, the Magistrate noted that due to insufficient evidence against Rodrigues for the murder of the activist, a prima facie case was not made out against him and therefore cannot stand trial in the High Court.
Subsequently, the DPP wrote the Magistrate and asked her to reverse the decision and commit Rodrigues to stand trial in the High Court for the murder. The Magistrate refused and filed for a stay of execution.
Her application was unsuccessful and the Magistrate had to commit the number one accuse to the High Court.
