|Monday, 02 April 2012 12:42|
Detectives are looking for three men who attempted to rob a man who had withdrawn money from an automated teller machine at the Royal Bank of Canada on Leeward Highway in Providenciales on March 27.
When the man came out of the bank foyer, he heard someone shout to him in Creole “Hey man, come here,” according to police.
The man looked over and saw three dark-skinned men standing in the bushes by the car park. The one who shouted was dressed in a red shirt, black jeans and was wearing a hat.
The other two were dressed in all black with masks over their faces. They all appeared to be holding weapons, possibly cutlasses.
The customer ran to his car and drove away.
Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477. Tips can be left in English, French or Spanish at www.crimestoppers.tc or by becoming a friend of Crime Stoppers TCI on Facebook.
AG will prosecute those who disclose SIPT documents
Statements taken by the Special Investigation and Prosecution Team have been leaked and posted on websites, which might result in criminal charges.
“The statements recently disclosed to the media are clearly part of the SIPT’s ongoing criminal investigation, with a view to their being used as evidence in legal proceedings,” Attorney General Huw Shepheard said.
“As such, these papers are covered by legal professional privilege and, in addition, by the law of contempt of court. The disclosure of this material to persons not involved in the litigation for which they were prepared is a contempt of court punishable with imprisonment.
“If the disclosure or any publication was made with the intention of frightening or intimidating the witness whose statement is disclosed or published, the offence of attempting to pervert the course of justice may also have been committed. This is also punishable with imprisonment.”
