PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – A po­lice­man who re­port­edly as­saulted a pho­tog­ra­pher as­signed to the Trinidad Guardian news­pa­per, has been charged with as­sault oc­ca­sion­ing bodily harm.

The charge stems from an in­ci­dent on Septem­ber 15 when Cor­po­ral Billy Ram­sun­dar al­legedly as­saulted Kris­tian De Silva who told the po­lice that he was at­tacked while try­ing to take pho­tos of the A&V Oil and Gas com­pound in Pe­nal.

De Silva said he had gone to the com­pound to fol­low up on the lat­est devel­op­ments in­volv­ing A&V Oil and Gas.

He said that while at­tempt­ing to take pho­tographs for the Trinidad Guardian a man ap­proached him in a ve­hi­cle and drove straight to­wards him in what ap­peared to be an at­tempt to hit him.

He said a man then ex­ited the ve­hi­cle and hit him in his face, in­jur­ing his mouth in the process and an­other man then hit him on the side of the face.

The im­pact of the blows caused De Silva’s glasses to fall from his face, fol­low­ing which one of the men stamped on them. (CMC)
