Mortgage writ for woman on judge ‘assault provocation’ charge

A woman who allegedly fled the country after being charged with trying to provoke an assault on a judge is now being sued for more than $500,000 in connection to a mortgage.

Carolyn Drover, 44, was due to stand trial at Magistrates' Court this summer in connection to inflammatory comments made on this newspaper's website — including Puisne Judge Carlisle Greaves' home address.

She denied the offence and was initially remanded into custody, but later released on bail. Ms Drover failed to attend court on either the mention date or trial date in connection with the matter, and is believed to have left the Island. On September 17, HSBC Bank Bermuda Ltd filed a writ in connection to a mortgage dated January 27, 2011, with Ms Drover listed as the defendant.

And in yesterday's edition of The Royal Gazette, a notice was published stating the bank is seeking possession of the mortgaged property on Devon Springs Lane in Devonshire, and the $568,405.46 due under the mortgage as of September 11 this year.

Ms Drover has 28 days to enter an appearance at Supreme Court if she seeks to defend herself from the action, but if she fails to do so a default judgement could be entered against her.

A spokeswoman for the bank said they could not discuss the matter, citing customer confidentiality.
