OWTU official in court on assault charge
An Oilfields Workers’ Trade Union (OWTU) Point-a-Pierre branch official has appeared in court charged with assault and malicious damage of eyeglasses stemming from a brawl at a union meeting last September. OWTU executive member Ancil Phillip, who was represented by attorney Garnet Mungalsingh, appeared before Deputy Chief Magistrate Mark Wellington in San Fernando First Court yesterday.
The charges include assaulting Ian Michael Matthew by beating and maliciously damaging his eyeglasses valued $1,980 at OWTU Hall, Marabella. Phillip pleaded not guilty to both charges. Phillip was placed on $20,000 bail and he was ordered to return to court on July 5. The matter was transferred to the San Fernando Sixth Court.
