Sanctuary Arson: Judgement Day

Updated: Mar 12, 2019

In 2010 while Vince and Cherie were away on an emergency crocodile call, villagers assembled at the Rose's property and proceeded to loot, destroy, and burn down their home and the surrounding sanctuary. They tore down the fences and mutilated all crocs in sight.

Two and 1/2 weeks prior to the second anniversary of the arson, the judge rules: A declaration is granted that a riotous assembly of persons, as defined in section 2 of the Riot Compensation Act Chapter 338 assembled at the claimants' property situated at Water Hole Road, Forest Home village, Toledo District for the purpose of executing a common purpose with violence and without lawful authority used such violence for that purpose to wit: they intentionally set fire and destroyed three houses, furniture, household utensils and other property owned by the claimants. I will now hear the parties on the issue of compensation. JUDGE OF THE SUPREME COURT Oswell Legall Aug. 17th, 2012.
