Jamaat al Muslimeen leader Yasin Abu Bakr and his guards leave Port-of-Spain High Court yesterday. Two policemen patrol the streets around the court as Justice Mark Mohammed neared the close of his summation in the conspiracy to murder trial. A jury is due to decide Bakr’s fate today when they consider whether he is guilty of conspiring to murder two expelled members. Security is expected to be extra tight around the Hall of Justice.
