When Assistant Superintendent of Police, Ray John arrived at the St. John’s Magistrates Court Wednesday he was told his criminal case would have to be adjourned.
This was because Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh, who is presiding over the matter, is said to be unwell.
John was suspended from the police force in April after investigators began a probe into an alleged racket involving bio-pages of the Antigua and Barbuda passport.
The following month, the 47-year-old officer and his 63-year-old mother, Yvonne Nickie were slapped with a joint charge of Conspiracy to Forge Antigua and Barbuda passports.
John was further charged with multiple counts of Larceny and Receiving in relation to Multi-Layered Infilling Sheets and a Multi-Layered Infilling patch belonging to the Antigua and Barbuda Passport Office.
The suspended officer and his mother were both granted bail to the tune of $50,000 at their first court appearance.
They are due back in court on October 24.
