By BBN Staff: The United Garifuna Association (UGA), an organization comprised of Garinagu communities from six different countries, is unhappy with the recent developments of the murder trial of William “Danny” Mason and others.

The UGA issued a statement today, expressing its discontent that the trial had been suspended because Mason was unhappy with his attorneys.

“While we agree that all accused persons on trial should be given adequate legal representation during their trials, we pray and hope that they are not using this,  as a ploy to try and obtain a mistrial or dismissal of this case,” the UGA said.

The organization pleaded with authorities to resume as soon as possible and said that it would be monitoring the trial’s progress.

Mason and four others are charged with the 2016 decapitation of Garinagu pastor, Llewellyn Lucas. Justice Antionette Moore is presiding over the case, which was suspended until April, giving all the accused the opportunity to secure new legal representatives.
