Attorney Oscar Selgado Faces Abetment to Commit Murder Charge as Trial Continues

Attorney Oscar Selgado is back in court this week for the continuation of his trial on the charge of abetment to commit murder. Selgado, represented by Adolph Lucas Sr., appeared in court this morning before Justice Nigel Pilgrim. The case was adjourned until tomorrow due to a clash with another matter before Justice Pilgrim. Selgado stands accused of hiring a hitman to kill Marilyn Barnes back in 2019. Barnes had made a report against Selgado, alleging inappropriate conduct while he was working in the Office of the Ombudsman. Director of Public Prosecutions Cheryl Lynn Vidal is prosecuting the case, and there have been testimonies from Barnes, the alleged target, as well as Commissioner of Police Chester Williams. The court has also ruled that the statement given to police by the alleged hitman, Giovanni Ramirez, will be admissible as evidence. This admission into evident had to undergo a voir doire, to determine whether the statement could stand alone without Ramirez’ testimony.  According to Ramirez, he does not want to testify as he is fearful of the repercussions on his life.
