-man thrown out of City Hall for inquiring about money owed to him
The sale of a truck to the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown (M&CC) was reportedly the basis of a physical altercation between an officer of the City Constabulary and the vendor yesterday.
The incident which occurred some time after 13:00 hours, was characterised by a boxing match which was sparked after an officer under the instructions of Mayor Hamilton Green tried to forcibly remove the private citizen out from the municipal compound.
Several media practitioners yesterday witnessed the attempt to have the man removed and the subsequent physical altercation which was appeased following the intervention of other officers. The man was promptly arrested but was expected to be released soon after.
The man had sold a truck to the municipality but has not been in receipt of full payment. It was revealed that the vehicle is valued at several millions of dollars.
Reports are that the man has sought audience with various municipal officials on a number of occasions, including the Mayor but has still been denied payment.
