The three men accused of the chilling 2020 killing of Principal Inspector of Customs, Nigel Christian, are set to enter their pleas in the High Court Friday.
Forty-four-year-old Christian was abducted from his McKinnons residence July 10, 2020 and was found lifeless hours later in the Thibou’s area, bearing fatal gunshot wounds.
The nation was left in shock and mourning by this brazen act, which sparked widespread calls for justice.
In April 2021, Lasean Bully of Cashew Hill, Wayne Thomas of Hatton, and Saleim Harrigan of Greenbay were charged with Christian’s murder and subsequently remanded to prison.
After several appearances in the District B Magistrates Court, Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel committed the matter to the High Court in September last year.
Nigel Christian’s supporters have been unwavering in their demand for justice, with numerous protests echoing their call for closure and accountability in the face of this tragic loss.
Tomorrow, the accused men will stand before Justice Ann-Marie Smith for their arraignment, marking a pivotal moment in the pursuit of justice for Christian and his grieving loved ones.
