The matter was adjourned to Wednesday.

The 45-year-old woman was kidnapped on September 6 and a ransom demanded by the kidnappers.

Police were notified and an intelligence driven operation immediately mounted.

Four days later, Pollonais was clinically extracted by the police while being transported by one of the suspects in a car heading along the westbound lane of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway, near Courts Mega Store.

Two other suspects were subsequently held at the La Romain Police Post around 7:40 pm the same night.

A fourth suspect surrendered to police last Wednesday. Euin and James were charged by ASP (Ag.) Peter Ramdeen, of the Southern Division, on Monday, following advice received from Director of Public Prosecutions, Roger Gaspard, the same day.

A third suspect is due to be charged in connection with the incident, while the fourth is continuing to assist police with the investigation.
