The Dominican national who was arrested on three charges was tight-lipped as he made his second appearance at the Colonarie Magistrate’s Court, sitting in Georgetown.

On Nov. 30, Magistrate Bertie Pompey remanded Marlon Telemaque to prison after the prosecutor, Corporal 817 Stapleton told the court that the defendant had no fixed address.

Telemaque was charged that between Nov. 25 and Nov. 28, at New Chapmans, he entered upon the property of Marcus Forbes, of New Chapmans, as a trespasser to commit an offence, to wit to annoy.

He was also charged that on Oct. 26, at Langley Park, he unlawfully and maliciously wounded Agustus Humphrey, of Langley Park.

The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On Thursday, when he reappeared before the same magistrate at the same court, Telemaque maintained his not guilty pleas.

However, the prosecutor, Corporal Delando Charles said he would not be able to proceed with the matter that day as disclosure was yet to be made to the defendant.

Telemaque told the court that he was shot in Dominica and came to St. Vincent, where he and his now ex-wife, who is also Dominican, had bought lands. 

He said he came to St. Vincent for vacation by air but failed to mention with whom or where he had told immigration authorities he would have been staying.

When the magistrate questioned the defendant, he was mostly tight-lipped and told the court, “I don’t want to explain too much.” 

Telemaque said he could not answer certain questions until he got things sorted.

He told the magistrate he did not mind going back to prison but asked for an adjournment to allow him to contact a lawyer.

The magistrate told Telemaque that there is a welfare officer attached to His Majesty’s Prisons who would assist him in that regard.

Pompey further remanded the defendant to prison and adjourned the matter to Jan. 11, 2024
