– Chief Magistrate expresses disapprovalThe preliminary inquiry (PI) into the treason matter involving Major Bruce Munroe, his wife Carol-Ann Munroe, and reserve officer Leonard Wharton, was yesterday adjourned after the court was told that the prosecutors from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP)’s chambers would not be available for the hearing.The accused appeared before acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court once again, only to hear that the matter concerning them would have to continue on another date.Police Prosecutor Steven Telford rose to inform the court that the Director of Public Prosecutions, Shalimar Ali-Hack would be unable to make the proceedings as she was unwell. The court also heard that the matter could not be handled when it was called yesterday because Sonya Joseph,Jerseys NFL Wholesale, a prosecutor in the matter, was on annual leave.The police inspector urged the court that it should show its discretion since it would be quite normal for anyone to get sick and there was no telling when this could occur.
