A warrant is out for United Worker’s Party leader Ron Green to appear in court to answer charges brought against him by the Integrity in Public Office (IPO) Commission.

Green is among 25 people in public office charged last year for failing to declare their assets to the commission for the year 2009.

Green was expected to appear in court this morning but he was a no-show.

Dominica News Online (DNO) had reported that a warrant was out for Green’s arrest but DNO has received new information which reveals that that the warrant is only for him to reappear in court to answer to the charges brought against him by the IPO Commission.

According to Green, neither he nor his attorney, knew about the matter in court and he was in fact at the hospital this morning visiting a member of the IPO Commission who had suffered a stroke last night.

His lawyer, David Bruney, has spoken to the relevant authorities and he will be in court tomorrow morning to be advised of the date when this matter will be heard.
