The Police have arrested four men, aged between 20 and 28, in connection with the case of Murder at St James Power Station on 12 March 2017.

Through investigative probes and ground enquiries, officers from the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) and Police Intelligence Department (PID) established the identity of the first suspect and arrested him on 12 March 2017.

Working tirelessly round the clock, officers subsequently established the identities of the three other suspects and arrested them in an operation on 13 March 2017. Preliminary investigations revealed that the incident is believed to have arisen from a dispute between the deceased and a staff of the said entertainment outlet.

One of the suspects, aged 27, will be charged in Court on 14 March 2017 for the offence of Murder with Common Intention under Section 302(1) read with Section 34 of the Penal Code, Chapter 224, which carries the death penalty. Investigations against the other three suspects are still ongoing.
