Trinidad & Tobago: 3 charged with kidnapping baby for ransom

Three people have been charged with the kidnapping of nine-month-old baby Sofia Rivas.

Based on advice received from Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Roger Gaspard SC, Anjali De Gannes, 19, of Longdenville Old Road, Chaguanas; Judah Taitt, 58, and Jdan Taitt, 24, both of McInroy Street, Curepe, were charged yesterday with kidnapping for ransom, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) said in a news release last night.

Jdan Taitt was also charged with negotiating a ransom. Two other suspects were released following investigations.

Last week Tuesday, the child’s mother, Venezuelan national Valentina Hernandez, told police that while at her home on Longdenville Old Road, Longdenville, Chaguanas, the child was taken by a woman.
