A 49-year-old Owia man has been charged with threatening Deputy Prime Minister and area representative for North Windward, Montgomery Daniel.
Dale Medica aka Toad, a mechanic and electrician, appeared before Magistrate Bertie Pompey at the Colonarie Magistrate’s Court, sitting at Georgetown, on Thursday and pleaded not guilty.
He is accused that on July 18, at Owia, in circumstances likely to cause a breach of the peace, he made use of threatening language to Montgomery Daniel, of Sandy Bay, to wit, “Anywhere I meet you from today I will mash you up.”
The prosecutor, Corporal Delando Charles did not object to bail, but said, “This particular prosecutor takes threats very seriously.”
He asked for an increase in the EC$500 station bail that medica had been granted and asked the court to order that Medica have no contact with Daniel.
Magistrate Bertie Pompey increased the bail amount to EC$1,200 and ordered no contact with the virtual complainant.
The matter was adjourned to Aug. 3.
