The accused, Annamay Lewis on Aug. 5, 2021 when she was arrested in connection with the Prime Minister’s injury.

The woman who was charged with injuring Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves in Kingstown on Aug. 5, 2021, is to be tried on Feb. 9 on a charge of throwing missiles in the city.

Annamay Lewis, a  56-year-old vendor, of Layou, was scheduled to be tried today (Tuesday) at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court on a charge that on Aug. 5, at Kingstown, in a public place, to wit White Chapel Road, she threw missiles to the danger of persons who were present.

However, when the matter came up before Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court, the court heard that a key prosecution witness was under quarantine.

Lewis, who also complained of being unwell, attended the hearing. 

Burnett, therefore, adjourned the trial to Feb. 9.

Lewis made national headlines last August when she was charged with wounding Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves, who was struck in the head as he walked through a crowd of  protesters during an anti-mandatory vaccination demonstration in the capital.  

However, that charge was later withdrawn, leaving Lewis to face the throwing missile charge.

    Sounds like legal harassment and abuse of judicial process.

    Res Judicata and Collateral estoppel should be raised by her defense lawyers. When the system wants you they want you. Meanwhile a Senator walked out scotch free after a Man was injured in his own yard, left for dead and now can’t pay his bills.

    Aryo sweet down dey.
