Court appearance for parliament protesters

Four men have returned to Magistrates' Court in connection with the demonstration of December 2.

Sherman Hill, Antoine Minors, Ernest Trott and Dornielle Farrel have all previously denied obstructing police officers in the execution of their duty.

After a brief hearing before magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo, they were told to reappear on June 14.

Cindy Clarke, the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, has requested a trial date for the end of October, with defence counsel telling the court that a trial could take as long as a week due to the number of witnesses required.

Supporters in the gallery included Chris Furbert, the president of the Bermuda Industrial Union, and the Reverend Nicholas Tweed — who are scheduled to appear at 2.30pm in the Supreme Court, in connection with the protests.

Also listed to appear in that case are Glenn Simmons, Lily May Bulford and Neville Goddard.
