MLA appears in dock

| 09/11/2010

(CNS): The backbench UDP representative for Bodden Town made his first courtroom appearance this morning over charges relating to an assault at the Grand Cayman Beach Suites in May. Standing in the dock with his co-defendant, Joseph Minzett, Dwayne Seymour faced Magistrate Margaret Ramsey Hale as his defence counsel, Steve Mcfield, asked for a continuance, saying he had just received the evidence against his client from the crown. Both men were bailed to return to court on 30 November. Seymour is facing charges of common asault and attempting to pervert the course of public justice. The elected official has denied the charges and recently claimed he was suprised to have been charged so long after the incident.

Seymour and Minzett have been charged in connection with an incident which occurred at the Grand Cayman Beach Suites on Saturday, 1 May. At the time of the incident, Florida based personal trainer Garrone Yap claimed he was assaulted by Seymour and another man outside the hotel. All three men were arrested, but Yap was released without charge.
