OBA MP Scott denies unlawful house entry

One Bermuda Alliance MP Leah Scott denied unlawfully entering a Warwick home during her appearance at Magistrates' Court yesterday.

Ms Scott, a Government backbencher, is accused of entering the dwelling of Sonia Williams without lawful excuse on January 29.

After she pleaded not guilty, magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released the defendant on $1,000 bail and ordered her to have no contact with Ms Williams until she returns to court for mention on August 17.

Reacting in a statement yesterday afternoon, an OBA spokesman said: “MP Leah Scott has kept the party leader informed about this matter. It is a private concern before the courts and thus we have no further comment.”
