The trial of government senator Ashelle Morgan and Assistant Director of Public Prosecution, Karim Nelson are unlikely to proceed today (Friday).

Sources in the know told iWitness News that the Crown is expected to ask for an adjournment when the matters come up for hearing at the Mesopotamia Magistrate’s Court.

The application would be based on the fact that the prosecutor would be unable to conduct the entire trial in one day.

The trial is likely to take place next week, sources said, adding that the DPP is likely to ask the court to reserve at least three days for the hearing of the matters.

The trial of businessman Cornelius John — the virtual complaints in the Morgan and Nelson matters — is also likely to take place next week.

Morgan is charged that on April 13, at Diamond, she assaulted John with intent to wound him, while Nelson was charged with wounding John and unlawfully discharging a firearm at him.

John is to be tried on a charge that on the same date, also in Diamond, he used threatening language to Morgan.

He was also charged with two counts of using threatening language at his wife, Nicole John.

However, in August, Mrs. John told the court that she had no interest in proceeding on that matter.

  1. Look like the courts mind already made up. But lay we see if dis brazen action by two high ranking government officials will be without consequence. They dyarm near kill mr. John after unlawfully entering his home. There is also the issue of the third perpetrator. This is going to happen to more people down the road. So the trio becomes a duo. like the three musketeers turn into the lone ranger and tonto. This is some serious poetry.
