Sedition charge against Watson Duke dismissed

The sedition charge against Public Services' Association (PSA) President, Watson Duke, has been dismissed.

Chief Magistrate Maria Busby-Earle-Caddle opted to discharge Duke as he reappeared before her in the Port-of-Spain Magistrate's Court, a short while ago.

State prosecutors had requested that Busby-Earle-Caddle adjourn the case, after a preliminary hearing of the State's appeal over Justice Frank Seepersad's judgement, in which he struck down aspects of the Sedition Act. The hearing is carded for February 3.
