Rape charge cop in lux­ury par­adise digs

Sunday Mirror - - KHAN SAIRA -

A BRI­TISH po­lice­man has been given plush digs while await­ing trial for rape in the Caribbean.

PC Lee Martin-Cramp, 25, is ac­cused of at­tack­ing a stu­dent while at­tend­ing a fam­ily wed­ding on An­tigua three years ago.

The Met Po­lice of­fi­cer tried to block his ex­tra­di­tion on the grounds that con­di­tions in the is­land’s jail were in­hu­mane.

So An­tigua agreed he can live in an ex-US air base with air-con­di­tion­ing, a fridge, and en-suite bath­room while on re­mand for his trial later this month.

Chief mag­is­trate Emma Ar­buth­not said: “The con­di­tions were sat­is­fac­tory, to say the least.”
