Young had been scheduled to make a decision on Tuesday, November 2, in matter in which Lynch, host of the New Democratic Party “New Times” radio show, is charged with making false statements likely to cause fear or public alarm.

Defence attorney for Lynch, Kay Bacchus-Browne, noted on Tuesday that she contacted the court that day, only to find out that the matter was not ready and that the Magistrate would contact both sides when a decision is ready.

Bacchus-Browne and Maia Eustace, the other defence attorney, as well as Director of Public Prosecutions Colin Williams, who represented the crown, were ordered to present written submissions to Young by October 18, before her decision on November 2, 2010.

Lynch had stated that former Minister of Housing Julian Francis and Assistant Commissioner of Police, Lenroy Brewster were seen at night on August 4, 2007, at Wallilabou Bay, in the company of Anthony “Que Pasa” Gellizeau.

All three men have denied being on the beach in the company of each other.

Chief Magistrate Sonya Young and Senior Magistrate Donald Browne left the state yesterday, November 4, to attend a two-day workshop in Barbados on the proceeds of crime.

The Serious Offences Court will go on break from Monday, November 8 to Wednesday, November 17, 2010.
