Screen_Shot_2017-05-18_at_7.51.44_PMAs we shared yesterday, during the time the hearing was suspended, the original person that police was told to eject refused to leave. Only two cops were present in the gallery at the time and they were unsuccessful in escorting the group out. Instead, they witnessed as Brian “Yellowman” Audinett assaulted Plus TV’s Cameraman, Cirilo Choco by stoning a pen at him.

 

After the men walked to the lobby downstairs with police in tow, Chairman Aldo Salazar emerged to try to convince them to desist from the unruly behavior. KREM’s News Editor, Marisol Amaya had followed them to record what was transpiring. After the Chairman departed, Yellowman approached Amaya and chastised her for taping. He then threatened to take Amaya’s phone away and smash it on the ground. And Audinett actually carried out his threat as he took Amaya’s phone but returned it as he was surrounded by police one of whom cautioned him. CTV3 News understands that Choco has filed a police report for future reference but has not requested Court action for assault.

 

In Amaya’s case, we understand that a possible charge can be brought for “threat of damage to property and common assault”. Amaya will also file a police report for future reference. But while that takes place the General Manager of KREM Television Nuri Muhammad has written to Howell Gillett Commander in charge of the Belmopan Branch police department. In the letter Muhammad calls on Gillett to address yesterday’s attack on the media specifically Amaya appropriately and immediately. Of note is that most..if not all media houses..including CTV3 News has decided to write a letter to the Chairman of the Senate Select Committee Aldo Salazar and Clarke of the National Assembly requesting that Brian “Yellowman” Audinett not be permitted at the Senate Hearings.
