In October last year, the family of Arthur James filed a missing person report at Freetown Police Station, after he had gone missing.

The police commenced investigations into the matter, and in November, all three accused were arrested and charged with his alleged kidnapping.

They were taken before the court and remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison. However, with the exception of Joseph, both Zamir and Obasic Ogarro were able to make bail.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Everton Jeffers, who is acting in the absence of Commissioner Rodney, said he is pleased with the level of progress that has been made so far in the investigation.

He pointed out that the investigation had numerous complexities that required patience, as well as diligent and professional police work to bring to the point where further charges could have been laid.

DCP Jeffers acknowledges the critical role played by the FBI Forensic Lab and the support offered by the Government of Antigua and Barbuda in the investigation.
He commended the team of investigators for their hard work and commitment and also express thanks to James’s family for their patience.

The accused are expected back in court sometime next week.
