Ian Alleyne shows emptied-out house; says he'll raise $748,000 debt with supporters' help

Former Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne has posted a video to his Facebook page showing his Couva house emptied out after bailiffs removed furniture this morning for his failure to pay a court order for defamation.


Alleyne lost a defamation case against Shaun Sammy in December 2015 and the court ordered him to pay $600,000 plus legal costs. 

Alleyne said in the video that the total cost is $748,000.

He said he believes he will be able to raise the money from supporters of his programme.

Alleyne insisted this morning's actions were to stop him from opening his new studio for a return of his Crime Watch programme. 

At one point his voice cracked and he burst into tears as he described the impact upon his son, of this morning's execution of the levy.
