Man denies hosting illegal pandemic parties

A man yesterday denied being the host of two parties that broke Government protection regulations.

Clifton Powell Ross, 37, pleaded not guilty to two counts of hosting an event called Pandemic Saturdays – Wet and Wild Edition that had more than 50 people in attendance.

The incidents are alleged to have happened on Middle Town Drive, Pembroke on August 1 and 8.

The Government had enacted regulations at the time of the alleged offences that prohibited gatherings of more than 50 people to lessen the spread of Covid-19.

Mr Powell Ross could face a maximum fine of $6,000 if convicted.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe adjourned the case until January 18 and released Mr Ross Powell, from Pembroke, on $3,000 bail.
