Crime Watch host Ian Alleyne has cleared his debt of $757,000 awarded to businessman Shaun Sammy by the Civil Court in a defamation matter.
Alleyne made the payment via a cheque dated November 16th, 2016 following which attorneys representing Sammy filed a notice of discontinuance of the levy action.
Bailiffs removed property from Alleyne's Rivulet Road, Couva home on October 18th, after his failure to pay the money ordered by the court.
Sammy was represented by attorneys Ramesh Lawrence Maharaj, Om Lalla and Dereck Balliram.
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.

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.
