Irwin Point rape case postponed until next Tuesday
MONTEGO BAY, St James — The case involving two brothers charged with raping five people including an eight-year-old at Irwin Point, St James last year has been postponed until next Tuesday, March 12th.
The matter has been postponed, the Jamaica Observer was told, in order to give a senior prosecutor who recently took over the case time to peruse the document in preparation for trial.
Meanwhile defence attorney Lambert Johnson is questioning whether the prosecution will be proceedings with the case against the men in light of the fact that DNA results appears to have excluded them from the rapes.
Johnson told the Observer also that the victims said in their statement that the attackers wore masks. This, he said, will provide difficulty for the prosecution, which is going on voice recognition.
The brothers have taken up the bail offer they got the last time they appeared in court.
