Sasha Mohammed cleared

Adviser to Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, SASHA MOHAMMED, will not be charged with harassing Trinidad Express news staff….

 This after Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard advised the police not to lay any charges against Mohammed, since there was insufficient evidence to successfully secure a conviction….

 The advice was reportedly given last week….And the matter is therefore now closed…

Police were seeking to charge Mohammed under the Amendment of the Offences against the Persons Act Chapter 11:08 Act No. 11 of 2005, which deals with harassment…

A police source said if Mohammed had sent the e-mail on more than one occasion to express Editor-in-chief Omatie Lyder and reporter Anna Ramdass, she would have been charged…

On January 30, a threatening e-mail was sent to the two journalists by someone using the name “Janice Thomas” in connection with the Reshmi Ramnarine story….

 The e-mail, which targeted Lyder and Ramdass, was addressed to editors and reporters of the Express and staff of CCN-TV6, as well as other media houses…

 It accused the two of a personal vendetta against Ramnarine…and noted that “the two journalists’ day in the sun was over” and “this was the beginning…and that the two will understand the consequences of their actions…

 ……Pressure has been mounting on the Prime Minister from various quarters, including factions of the coalition government and the Opposition People’s National Movement, to fire Mohammed.

 Mohammed was warned by police on June 17, after a probe uncovered that the e-mail originated from the computer at her San Juan home.

She has however denied issuing the emails…
