ROMAL Jewan, was, on Thursday, January 16, 2020, acquitted from a rape charge, after being found not guilty by a jury, following a retrial at the Demerara High Court.

Jewan of Zeelugt, East Bank Essequibo, was on trial before Justice Jo-Ann Barlow at the Sexual Offences Court of High Court, Georgetown, for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl on September 7, 2012.

The jury returned 11 not-guilty and 1 guilty verdict and Jewan was acquitted of the charge.
In October 2019, Justice Simone Morris-Ramlall had ordered that Jewan be retried at the next practical sitting of the Demerara Assizes since the jury was unable to reach a verdict.
