Range Rover owner wants vehicle returned
RIA TAITT Political Editor
Government has been asked to hand over the Black Range Rover, which had been seized from Anna Deonarine, Deputy Political Leader of the Independent Liberal Party, to Attorneys representing Barry Hancock of BR International Limited.
A letter from Jessica Maicoo, dated October 17, 2012, noted that there was a conversation between the Attorney General Anand Ramlogan and "our Karl Hudson-Phillips" who is in chambers with Karl Hudson-Phillip.
The letter said the law firm was retained by Barry Hancock of BR International Limited who had the benefit of a duly notarized power of attorney dated November 17, 2011 from Lombard Vehicle Management, the legal owner of the vehicle which was reported stolen in the United Kingdom between May 2008 and December 2008.
"The exact circumstances in which the vehicle was stolen and shipped to Trinidad is unknown. However I am instructed that the vehicle which was the subject of a contract hire purchase between Lombard Vehicle Management and one Nabeel Shah, was shipped to Trinidad in December 2008, without Lombard Vehicle Management's knowledge or consent," the letter stated.
The letter said the vehicle was in the possession of the State. "In the circumstances this is to call upon the relevant government department through the Office of the Honourable Attorney General to hand over the vehicle to us on behalf of Mr Hancock whom we represent so that the same may be disposed of according to the direction of the owner," the letter added.
And the letter concluded by saying that it was being copied to Anna Deonarine from whom the vehicle was seized to advise her of this demand and to afford her an opportunity to challenge our client's right to possession of the vehicle.
