Monday, June 16, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Justice Courtney Abel today presided over case management in the matter of Minister of State Edmond Castro versus Alvarene Burgess, who gave Great Belize Television (Channel 5) a series of interviews alleging the involvement of the Minister in visa procurement.
Castro sued for defamation of character but attorney for the television station, Senior Counsel Godfrey Smith, tried to have the case as it related to them struck out.
He says Justice Abel asked that he bring the matter back at the substantive trial for a ruling.
Castro’s attorney is Senior Counsel Rodwell Williams.
The case returns for case management on June 30 but no date has been set for the actual trial.
