6 Trinis in Harbour Master fight to appear in Grenadian court on Monday

The six Trinidadian nationals who were arrested and charged on Friday in connection with assaulting Grenadian athletic champion Anderson Peters on-board the Harbour Master party boat last Wednesday, are set to appear in court on Monday.

According to a statement from the Royal Grenada Police Force on Friday, Trinidadians John Alexander, 55 years, Deckhand of Arima, Mikhail John, 35 years, Sailor of San Juan, Noel Cooper, 42 years, Captain of Curepe, Lance Wiggins, 45 years, Sailor of Cocorite and Sheon Jack, 28 years, Sailor of Cocorite were all charged with one count each of grievous harm and stealing, while Abiola Benjamin, 40 years, Operations Manager/Police Officer of Maraval was charged for assault on Peters.

Alexander, John, Cooper, Wiggins and Jack were also charged for causing harm to Kiddon Peters, the brother of Anderson Peters.

Peters, who is the double world javelin champion, was reportedly beaten and tossed overboard on Wednesday, following a party aboard the T&T-owned cruise boat, which is currently operating in Grenada.

The six accused, who are all crew members, were later detained in connection with the incident and will remain in police custody until their appearance before the magistrate.

As a result of this matter, Grenada’s Supreme Court has ordered the vessel be “arrested.”
