Bailiffs move in on Ian Alleyne for failing to pay $600,000 court order

A court marshall this morning enforced a writ of execution at the Couva home of former Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne, for failing to pay damages against him in Shaun Sammy vs Ian Alleyne defamation case. 

Several items, including a refrigerator, a bed and a television, were taken from Alleyne's home, which attorney Om Lalla says will be auctioned off.

If the money collected from the auction is not enough to meet the court order of $600,000 in damages plus legal costs, other assets will seized.

Lalla said Ian Alleyne was given enough time to pay Sammy. 

Sammy received the award from High Court Master Marissa Robertson in December 2015, months after the High Court entered judgment in default because Alleyne failed to enter a defence in court. 

Sammy took Alleyne to court after Alleyne spoke about Sammy’s then pending case for drunk driving on his Crime Watch programme. 

The programme was at the time being aired on CNC3, which is part of Guardian Media Limited.
