Tobago businessman Allan Warner charged with illegal mining

Well known Tobago businessman and founder of the Warner Group of Companies, Allan Warner, has been charged with the criminal offence of illegal mining.

The 74-year-old man reportedly turned himself in at the St Joseph Police Station to officers of the Multi-Agency Task Force in the company of his attorneys, Pamela Elder, SC, and Russell Warner on Tuesday 2nd July, 2024.

However, after complaining of feeling unwell that same day, he was taken to the St Augustine Private Hospital where he spent the night under police guard.

On Thursday 4th July, 2024, Warner was identified as the owner of an aggregate mining plant at Moonan Road, Wallerfield, and was released on $100,000 bail with surety by justice of the peace Abrahim Ali.

He is scheduled to appear before the Arima Magistrates Court on July 19, to join his son, Aloko Ato Warner, and seven others who were charged in early May for a similar offence by officers of the Multi-Agency Task Force (MATF) led by ASP Leon Haynes.
