Case dismissed against senator Caesar
A charge of careless driving against government senator Crystal Caesar was dismissed by a court yesterday.
Ms Caesar, 44, from Pembroke, was accused of running a red light at the junction of Court Street and Reid Street in Hamilton.
The police constable who issued the ticket told Magistrates’ Court that he “assumed” that the traffic light was red when Ms Caesar drove through it.
Marc Daniels, Ms Caesar’s defence lawyer, argued that there was insufficient evidence to support the charge.
The incident was alleged to have happened at about 3.45pm on January 26.
Ms Caesar is junior Minister of Home Affairs and Economic Development for the ruling Progressive Labour Party.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo discharged the defendant.
