MARIGOT–The Court in Marigot on Thursday fined Nadika Stephen 1,000 euros for verbally abusing three officers of Police aux Frontières (PAF) during an incident that took place on June 16, 2015.
Stephen had reacted to her son Kevin being taken into custody during a control by PAF officers in Bellevue, after he was unable to immediately produce his identification card on the bus – a situation that quickly deteriorated – leading to his detention.
She was also ordered to pay the three officers 500 euros each for damages in their civil claim although they had asked for 1,500 euros each. Stephen was further ordered to pay 1,500 euros for the legal costs of the victims for hiring a lawyer. Charges of racial discrimination were dropped.
