Former model Yugge Farrell was granted EC $1000 bail when she appeared in the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court yesterday.
The 23 year old is charged with using abusive language to the wife of Finance Minister Camillo Gonsalves, on January 4. The matter has been adjourned to December 17, 2018.
In other new developments, Barbadian Queen’s Counsel Andrew Pilgrim is now leading the defence in the case.
Farrell had previously been hospitalized at the Mental Health Center while a magistrate decided on the arguments presented in court regarding the acceptance of a report from the psychiatric hospital.
The appearance of Pilgrim follows a recent statement by Grant Connell, the attorney who has been representing Yugge Farrell since her arraignment on January 5 that “I have been contacted by several senior attorneys throughout the Caribbean, who have expressed their willingness to render their legal services, pro bono”.
Earlier, attorney Kay Bacchus-Baptiste said she has been retained to see after the “human rights and mental health issues” of the former model, after she had been asked by her relatives to see after her interest.
