Justice Minister, Delroy Chuck, says the firearm license granted to businessman, Patrick Powell, should be revoked.
Powell was freed yesterday in the Home Circuit Court. He was accused of murdering 17 year old Khajeel Mais in 2011.
He was also freed on the charge of shooting with intent.
Police reported that Mr. Powell refused to hand over his licensed firearm for testing when was he taken into custody.
He’s to appear in the Parish Court to answer to the charge of failing to hand over his firearm to investigators for inspection.
The Justice Minister says the businessman should not be granted another firearm license.
He’s also expressing surprise that the matter of the failure to hand over the firearm has not been resolved in court.
