Johnson and James were reportedly the hired “hit men”.Nazeema Permaul allegedly assisted in planning the murder, and also allegedly acted as the agent who handed over the cash to the ‘hit men’.On September 24, a fifth accused — Shabikie Albert, also called ‘Shabikie Thompson’ — was freed of this indictment by Magistrate Artiga.During the preliminary inquiry, the Permauls were represented by Attorney- at-Law Mursaline Bacchus, while Attorney-at-Law Benard DeSantos represented James, and Attorney-at-Law Moti Singh represented Johnson.last_img read more
