MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT Rawle Eastmond, his wife Eugene and Haniyfa White, the woman who is charged with committing offences against the couple, will all appear in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court on May 5.
White, 32, returned to the court yesterday, this time before Magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne, where her case involving Eugene Eastmond was called.
She had previously pleaded not guilty to charges that on December 3, last year, she used threatening words “Wunnah don’t come out. Stay in there. I gine kill all o’ wunnah” to Eastmond, and that having unlawfully entered the woman’s premises, she misconducted herself by behaving in a threatening manner.
Prosecutor Sergeant Keith Belle requested an adjournment, but told the court he wanted to start the case “very soon” because of its uniqueness.
Belle explained that apart from the case involving the MP’s wife, White was also charged with assaulting the husband and murdering Julene Bryan on May 15, 2007.
He asked that the cases involving the Eastmonds be heard on the same day.
Attorney-at-law Lesley Cargill, who is representing White, told the court that her client had complied with the orders made by Magistrate Ian Weekes last week and had moved out of the house she occupied at Sion Hill, St James, which was opposite the Eastmonds’ home.
She also indicated that a cross-complaint had been filed against Rawle Eastmond, who is also an attorney-at-law.
