Pastor pleads guilty
ST JOHN’S – The pastor at the New Testament Church of God, Uriah Taylor, was remanded on Monday after he pleaded guilty to the failure to comply with public health regulations banning gatherings in excess of 25 people.
Another member of the Church, Alston Turner, was also remanded after he pleaded guilty to battery on the police, obstruction and resisting arrest.
Both the pastor and the church member will be sentenced on Tuesday.
Police had sought to end a Church service on Sunday after receiving reports there were more than 25 people in attendance.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne has since hinted at the possibility of more stringent measures to deal with the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). (CMC)
