Jamaica Labour Party councillor for the Trafalgar Division in St Andrew, Kari Douglas, had her bail extended when she appeared before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court yesterday.

She also plead not guilty to charges of assaulting a policeman and obstructing the police.

The prosecution told Chief Parish Judge Chester Crooks that the case file was not completed and subsequently a mention date was scheduled for May 20.

Her arrest stemmed from a February 26 incident, in which the police reported that they were responding to a gathering in Swallowfield, St Andrew, half an hour into the nightly islandwide curfew.

Douglas allegedly used her vehicle to block the police from arresting an alleged offender from the gathering.
