THE READING of 444 fraud charges to Tinisha Gosine-Ramdass, the wife of police inspector Darryl Ramdass, continued into last night in a case that may be the most number of charges ever to be read to a defendant.
Princes Town Magistrate Indira Misir-Gosine began reading the charges to Gosine-Ramdass at 1.10 p.m yesterday.

At 4.40 p.m. she said she was only halfway through the charges.
While charges were being read, the court staff brought more paperwork with allegations.
The magistrate said that given the length of time she had taken so far, the remainder of the process might last until 8 p.m.
The Express was told that once the magistrate began reading the charges, all would have to be completed.
