Former British Cop Takes Rape Case To The Privy Council


Former British cop, Lee Martin-Cramp, convicted of raping an American woman in Antigua & Barbuda will be taking the matter to the Privy Council.

While details surrounding the filing of the appeal and the prospective date for a hearing are still coming to hand, it has been reported that Martin-Cramp will now be represented by Lawrence Daniels.

The former British police officer extradited to Antigua on a rape charge was sentenced to 15 years in the High Court in July 2019.

Martin-Cramp was charged with raping a foreign student while attending a family wedding in 2015.

It is believed that Martin-Cramp drugged the student who invited him to her apartment to hang out one night.

The victim said the former officer admitted he tampered with her drink and said she blanked out after taking a few sips.

Martin-Cramp’s case was the first time a UK citizen has been extradited to Antigua & Barbuda to face criminal charges. 

Martin-Cramp attempted to block the extradition claiming inhumane conditions at Her Majesty’s Prison, which is commonly called 1735 based on the year it was built.

 However, in a legal first, local authorities convinced a London judge to sign off on the extraction by assuring that the accused officer will be kept in very comfortable conditions at the former US airbase. 

As per the agreement, the officer will remain imprisoned at the air base with the option of returning to the UK to serve his sentence.

Despite the 2019 verdict, the disgraced UK cop did not accept the conviction and sentence he was handed and appealed the High Court ruling in the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal. That appeal was dismissed in April 2021.

  1. He’s lucky he didn’t get life in prison. He should be transferred to 1735 immediately. He’s be well looked after there. He’d be welcomed.

  2. What a disgraced detective! I hope the young lady is able to heal and move on with living a happy meaningful life.

    • I’d rather see him “welcomed with open arms” by the boys inb 1735, which is where he belongs. They’d give him a welcome he’d never forget.

    • Didn’t Cedar Valley issue a statement stating that convicted sexual offenders will not be welcomed there? Particularly those who practice Magic.

      • He was back playing golf on Sunday. Many golfers are buddy buddy with him don’t seem to mind that he is a sick fuck. Antigua is not a real place.

        • Get him into a cell at 1735 right away. No golfing there, and no balls either (golf balls of course). End the luxury housing and golfing privileges right now. This is no holiday.

  3. Why he don’t keep quiet and served out his time? He has the best housing for a prison on the island 🌴.

  4. Kmfa, this is bull shit.. Why tf she invite a complete stranger to her apt, if not to do drugs and fk.. We all know most if not all them Medical student love do hard coke n pop pills..

    • Just bcuz u invite a man over doesn’t mean he can rape U. If u willingly bring ur car to a shop and they turn around and bruk ur windows and steal ur engine, it’s ur fault? No. He is a rapist and should get worse
