Deputy speaker of the House of Assembly Ronald Toulon has failed to appear in court and a warrant has been issued for him to do so.
Toulon has been summoned to court, following his failure to declare his assets to the Integrity in Public Office (IPO) Commission in 2009. He did not show up in Thursday’s court proceedings, and no reason was given for his non appearance.
Toulon, who is also the Member of Parliament for the Colihaut constituency, is among 25 people in public life who were charged last year for not filing their declarations. The warrant for his arrest, issued by Chief Magistrate Evelina Baptiste, is meant to take Toulon before the court.
Last month Leader of the United Workers Party Ron Green had a warrant issued for him to appear in court for the same matter.
