A mentally ill man, who is the son of reggae singer and producer Sugar Minott, charged with assaulting his brother had his bail extended until August 30 in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate‘s Court on Tuesday.

The defendant, who was bounded over in the custody of his mother on his initial court appearance, was not present on the day, but his mother and brother, who is also the complainant, appeared in his absence.

Charged with assault occasioning bodily harm is Andrew Minott.

flared up

The court heard that on the day of the incident, Minott, who was previously a patient of the Bellevue Hospital, was involved in a dispute with the complainant. The complainant was at home when Minott went into the studio and started pulling a table from the room. The complainant tried to stop him but Minott flared up and punched him in the face and started kicking him all over his body.

Minott’s brother told Senior Resident Magistrate (RM) Judith Pusey that the accused had been “terrorising” him for a while. Minott responded to his brother by telling him that he should stop carrying down the family name.

The RM asked Minott if he had been taking his medication, to which he responded in the affirmative. She then told him that he could not reside at the house as he was a problem, however, he told the RM that his father had bought all the equipment there and that his brother should not bother him.

Pusey then bounded him over in the custody of his mother and told her that he was not to return to the house where the studio was located.

Minott did not agree and told the RM that she would have to look after him as she was preventing him from earning money. He also told her that he had expensive tastes, dining on Chinese cuisine, among other delicacies.

The St Elizabeth family who claim they are being repeatedly attacked by ghosts, are now pleading for help to combat the mysterious assaults, THE STAR understands.

The past several weeks have been so eventful for the family who resides in Red Bank, Rose Hall, they say they are now out of cash, medical supplies, appliances, furniture and other valuables.

A member of the family told THE STAR that a preliminary count of losses is estimated to be $500,000.

He said, “Nuff money we lose and we out of food right ya now … Mi mother can’t eat and she sickly.”

The 70-year-old woman who is the head of the house declined to give her name on record, however, she told THE STAR the events have taken a toll on her.

She said, “Three times now mi catch stroke, three times heart attack … I’m diabetic now for 30-odd years, and I can’t eat or take my medications … A bare beat up mi a get.”

nowhere to rest

She continued, “A 47 years now mi married and a di first mi a see or go through something like this … Mi nuh know where mi ago sleep tonight … No bed nowhere to rest …”

Her son told our news team that although he is a bit fearful, he will not show the enemy any signs of such.

He said, “Last night mi deh here with dem til bout 3 a.m. and mi nuh see no sign til bout when morning light, mi hear mi mada and mi sister a bawl fi help, and mi can see dem a fight but mi can’t see what dem a fight.”

The son continued, “Dem a fight and mi vex cause mi want defend dem but mi can’t defend dem because mi can’t fight weh mi can’t see … Mi a beg the church all over, anybody, we are suffering … Help!”

The mother also told THE STAR that even though there are relatives who want to help, the relatives are scared because if they go to stay with them, the ghost appears and the rock and stone throwing continues.

Her husband, who our news team was told is much older than she is, took THE STAR around the house, pointing to all the damaged windows.

He said, “Me and my wife, five children and two grandchildren occupy the house … All the windows, dresser, fridge, bed, sofa, chairs and clothes destroyed. Three tvs damaged, radio and other appliances … This is happening in front our eyes and we can’t do nothing.”

The family claims that even a dog, once considered as one of the most fearful in the community, was now showing signs of fear.

A neighbour told THE STAR, “Yuh see all da dog deh, yuh si how him quiet? A from the duppy dem rise him a behave so and him did bad, nobody couldn’t come ina da yard yah.”

Meanwhile, crowds of people have been gathering in the quiet community daily in an attempt to witness the mysterious happenings.

Why can’t We move on.

It’s quite a few years now since the Stephen Lawrence Murder and we have had a result in such case so why can’t we move on now and let his soul rest in peace.

How much more can we endure in trying to find ways in which the could do better in their investigation,why putting more pressure on the Police when they have done as much as they could.

Isn’t it time we move on and think about our younger siblings which is our future, who will be holding together what we have now created in a multi-cultural society.

Come on brothers and sisters it is time that we started to think and not let our Ego let us down.

The British Police Force is just trying to do their jobs as any Police Force in the world,think about it,with me or not love you all, God Bless.

Help! We are suffering – Jamaican farm workers cry for aid – News – Jamaica Star – May 7, 2012.Just a reminder where ever you may go as a Jamaican to work you will always be under paid and over work as the Jamaican Government is too scared to stand up and be counted for the rights of their people.

Then again Farm Work is the new breed of Slavery that comes in the name of Farm Worker.

Bless the toiling hands dear Lord,Amen.

The arrogance of British Politics is ever so twisting ever since inquiries into the Phone Hacking Scandal’s begins, that it only shows how Lickie lickie Politicians can be that when they get caught with their trousers down they wanted to kill each other or used degrading words to try and defend themselves.
Why do we put up with these arrogances?. Why can’t we have people from grass root level in Politics who is more in touch with us and not some rich lads who are only in Politics to get into the super rich book of fame and to turn their backs on the people who puts them in such position in the first place.
