His case was then remanded until 31 October this year.
“This was a final postponement for the prosecuting authorities to obtain the results of his blood test to determine the level of alcohol,” said Magistrate Olivier as she granted the postponement.
The deputy PG is free on a warning, and he was again today warned to appear before court on 31 October this year when the results of his blood test will be made public before court.
Public Prosecutor Salomie Bampton appeared for the State today.
