Embattled Member of Parliament for All Saints West Michael Browne has denied committing the criminal charge levied against him.
The 44-year-old accused was arrested and charged in November last year. Those charges cannot be disclosed for legal reasons.
In April 2021, Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel-Edwards declared that there is sufficient evidence against the All Saints West MP to commit the matter to be tried in the higher court sometime after September.
But it appears that the matter was called early since Browne appeared in the High Court yesterday before Justice Colin Williams.
The matter was then adjourned to be mentioned on November 5, 2021.
On that day, the former Education Minister could receive an official trial date.
During the committal proceedings at the Magistrate’s Court, the prosecution tendered six pieces of evidence which will be used against Browne in trial.
Those exhibits include WhatsApp messages, call records, screenshots from Facebook Messenger with photos, etc.
The documents were verified by both Browne and his lawyer, Jarid Hewlett, who made no objections.
The prosecution also indicated that there are eight witnesses that could potentially be called in the MP’s trial.
The representative for All Saints West is presently on bail.
He was granted bail in the sum of $15,000 with a $6,000 cash component when he made his first appearance in the All-Saints Magistrate’s Court in late November 2020.
The MP was also ordered to surrender his travel documents, and report to the police three times every week. (Observer)

The truth will set you free.. M Browne
@ Ital The truth will set you free or not just saying
You guys have gotten it wrong: The TRUTH makes you free.
“Setting free” is a one-time event. “Making free” is an ever continuous and lifelong event. It is a life changer.
Christ Jesus said, “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32)
This “make” is character building. It is complete freedom: This is the type of freedom that no judge, jury or magistrate can give. Only the Creator.
It is this freedom that we are called to seek after. Unfortunately, the majority seeks a false freedom and hence look at the madness and evil in our world.
WORLD “CRYSIS”: TIME TO ACKNOWLEDGE TRUTH AND BE MADE FREE INDEED.
Why people sorry for this guy? How much agony and pain his over zealous behavior cause two other individuals? Where’s the 5000 page report you claimed you have in your possession that u used to harass two other individuals through the court process for almost four years. MS BROWNE I’m not sorry for you. I do hope justice is serve correctly and this is not a witch hunt like what u did to the two other persons you use the state resources to harass.
Chups- the 5 jobs pig in lipstick and the worm? Those are two I’m not sorry for.
The evil you do comes back and bite you in the behinds. Michael Browne,when you spit into the air. It would fall right back into your face. They say Karma is a Beach and then you die. Is this your Karma? I feel no sorrow and or loss for you. I hope all of the truth comes out in a Court of Laws. If found to be guilty. You are sentenced as any other no name man in Antigua. If found not guilty,then you walk on by.
