The Applicant was charged on the 14th March 2018 with two counts of unlawful carnal knowledge and indecent assault of a 5 year old girl. During the course of the proceedings, the Defence raised a fitness to plea issue who requested a report from a Consultant Psychiatrist based in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The report found that the Applicant was fit to make a plea. Counsel for the Applicant thereafter made an application to the Court to retain a psychiatrist from Jamaica to do an evaluation on his client.

Mr Robinson, the Plaintiff, is charged with the offences of robbery and conspiracy to rob. An originating summons was issued on his behalf seeking an inquiry into whether the police officers who arrested him breached ss 5(4) and 5(5) of the 2011 Constitution by failing to inform him of his right to remain silent as well as his right to have one person informed by the quickest practicable means of his arrest and of his whereabouts, before taking his caution statement in which Mr Robinson admitted the commission of the offences.
