Pair deny music video charges
Two men have denied a charge that they made a music video that called for police officers and others to be shot.
Ezra Ararat, 34, and Raymond Swan, 44, pleaded not guilty yesterday to making and publishing a music video “advocating the shooting of police, prosecutors and judges”.
The incident is alleged to have happened between July 17 and 19.
Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe remanded Mr Ararat, from Devonshire, in custody.
He released Mr Swan, from Hamilton Parish, on $15,000 bail, but ordered him to wear a monitoring device, follow a 7pm to 6am curfew and report to Hamilton Police Station three times a week.
Mr Wolffe adjourned the case until August 19.
