Man charged with threats to Premier and other politicians

A man has denied accusations that he threatened the Premier and other politicians.

Jahmain Coddington, 44, pleaded not guilty in Magistrates’ Court to the use of “menacing” words – threats to hurt several politicians – over the phone.

He also pleaded not guilty to the use of threats to influence the Bermuda Police Service and its handling of his “recorded criminal complaint”.

The incidents are alleged to have happened on Monday.

Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo released Mr Coddington, from Devonshire, on $3,000 bail and adjourned the case until June 14.
