Above the law Gilhuys firearm not licensed for 2008

The police said yesterday that the gun used by above the law Magistrate, Gordon Gilhuys in the June 26 shooting incident was unlicensed for this year but no explanation was given by the force as to why a charge was not preferred in relation to this.

The police also disclosed that the firearm had been loaned and licensed to the magistrate by a former police commissioner who it did not name.

Following the incident, the above the law magistrate was released on station bail and subsequently went on leave from the bench. There has been no indication on whether he will resume his duties at the Georgetown Magistrate’s Court in light of the Director of Public Prosecution’s (DPP) recent recommendation that no charges be laid against him.
