Bowen Happy to Leave GSU Incident in the past

Brhea Bowen

An emotional Brhea Bowen exited the court room of Supreme Court Justice Shona Griffith along with her mother, Romie Anthony, saying she hopes that she can put the nightmare behind her.


Brhea Bowen, Claimant

“All these years I have not really thought of it. I have talked about it but it is not something that I actually really, really thought about until now. I am just really that it is behind me now and I don’t really have to come back to this place. I believe the GSU needs to stop because they do not even do a proper investigation as to find out who it is for. They do not even try to find out of it s a set up or anything like that. They just arrest everyone. That is not right because it is innocent people. While I was locked up at the hostel we had a counselor and she looked at me ‘how comes you are so humble to the situation because a lot of people when bad things like this happen to them they become people who really start break the law.’ I said that I did nothing wrong. So why would I b e bitter? Why would I make bad karma for myself?

“Are you satisfied with the ten thousand dollars?”


Brhea Bowen

“I am satisfied with anything because I wasn’t really asking for anything. I just wanted justice.”


Hipolito Novelo

“I know the Justice said that it was a horrifying experience for you, six years ago in 2012. Do you remember what went through your mind when they came to pick you up at the summer camp that you were in?”


Brhea Bowen

“When will I see my mom again, nobody else.”


Hipolito Novelo

“At that time did you have any idea what was happening?


Brhea Bowen

“Nope. Nothing, nothing.”



“Do you think now you will be able to put this all behind you as the Justice had said.”


Brhea Bowen

“Yes, definitively.”


The Attorney General’s office was represented by Crown Counsel Briana Williams.
