Jasmine Hartin remains in police custody after senior cop is killed
Well-known island businesswoman Jasmine Hartin, partner of entrepreneur/developer Andrew Ashcroft, remains in police custody following the fatal shooting death of Superintendent of Police Henry Jemmott. 42-year-old Jemmott was apparently shot in the head with his own gun while socializing with Hartin.
Commissioner of Police (ComPol) Chester Williams said at a press briefing that Hartin was not cooperating and requested her attorney before speaking. According to ComPol, Hartin must provide an explanation; failing to do so means she has to be “treated as the killer.” Williams added that police might have to send the matter to the Director of Public Prosecutions for further instructions depending on Hartin’s level of cooperation. The report shared in the briefing also indicated no explanation as to why they were on the pier so late despite the 10PM COVID-19 curfew. ComPol also made clear that there will be no special treatment of Hartin, given her relationship with the son of British billionaire Lord Michael Ashcroft. She has two children with Andrew, the Lord’s youngest son. Click here to read the rest of the article in the San Pedro Sun
