A new trial date has been set for defamation for which Prime Minister Gaston Browne filed against renowned calypsonian, Lena “Queen Ivena” Phillip back in 2017.
The new date was set for February 20, 2020 following an adjournment in the High Court yesterday to facilitate the filing of important trial documents.
In July of this year, the Prime Minister sued Antigua and Barbuda’s first female Calypso Monarch over lyrics in her song, ‘Nastiness’.
Nastiness is very critical of the Gaston Browne government and the head of government himself.
Queen Ivena had since maintained that there were “no slanderous lines whatsoever” in the song.
