High Court fineA Portsmouth woman has been arrested and is now facing a charge of perverting the course of justice.

It is reported that the woman removed a minor, her daughter, from a sexual court matter and a bench warrant was issued for her arrest after the minor failed to appear to give evidence last week.

The woman appeared in court on Monday and is now on $10,000 bail.

She did not enter a plea since the matter is an indictable one.

As part of bail conditions the woman, whose name cannot be published since the case involves a minor, is to surrender all travel documents to the police and report three times a week to the Portsmouth Police Station.

The trial date is set for March 7th, 2016 in Portsmouth
