Newspaper trio back in court
Corporate Affairs Officer Norman Mason was the third witness in the case against three Nation Publishing employees whose case continued today before acting Magistrate Alliston Seale.
Mason testified in the District “A” Magistrates Court in the matter where Vivian-Anne Lenora Gittens, 63, a publisher of #11 Kent, Christ Church; Roy Ricardo Morris, 53, of #118 Warrens Park South, St Michael; and journalist Sanka Louis Price from Corner of Derriston & Grazettes Main Road, St Michael, have been accused of publishing an indecent photograph of two teens in 2013, while being employees of the Nation Publishing Company Limited.
The witness referred to Corporate Affairs records today, which he said he was authorised to speak from. His workplace kept record of all companies operating in the island and those showed that the Nation is registered as a publishing company under the laws of Barbados.
He also read the names of the Directors, including Gittens, who became one in 2011.
So far, acting Magistrate Seale has also heard evidence from the principal of the rural secondary school, which the students attend, and Director of the National Library Service, Annette Smith.
The case will continue on May 11.
