A Basseterre man, Winston “Zaba” Sprouse, has been fined EC$1000, to be paid within a month, after he was convicted on April 29 for posting placards without consent.
In default, he faces a six week stint prison.
He was arrested and formally charged with the offence on September 4, 2018.
According to a Police statement, Sprouse was originally arrested “for posting a number of Placards depicting three Police Officers with words that were menacing in character on lampposts around Basseterre.”
The placards alleged that the three subjects were corrupted.
All three officers are presently part of the Police High Command.
