Attorney Nyree Alfonso said yesterday something was amiss after burglars broke into her law chambers, located a short distance away from Central Police Station, and left empty-handed.

Alfonso said several items were disturbed and the petty cash in the office was not even touched.

“Some bank statements were disturbed, the computer was on and chair in front of the computer was not how I left it on Friday evening. It was not a normal robbery, I saw some files out of place but it was paper or electronic,” she said.

Alphonso said she could not speculate as to the intentions of who or what was behind the break-in.

Hours after the incident former minister Devant Maharaj sent an email to media houses commenting on the incident.

“I was in court when people showed me the WhatsApp message. He has his own position,” she said.

She said at that moment there were people working to secure the premises.

She said she spent time speaking with the police yesterday before she headed to court.

Alfonso said she walked two doors up to the Central Police Station and was told there was no one to send to investigate the matter.

“They sent somebody after. They did turn up, they just did not have any crime scene people there at the time,” she said.

Senior police officers yesterday confirmed that no items were taken from the scene and investigations were ongoing.
