Opposition’s Briceño Challenges Guardian’s Noble over Facebook ‘Drug Plane’ Story

On Thursday, the case of Leader of the Opposition John Briceño versus editor of the Guardian newspaper Alfonso Noble was called in the Supreme Court, but was adjourned.  Briceño was seeking an interim injunction against further publication by Noble in relation to a story posted on Facebook last month that tried to link the P.U.P. leader to one of the alleged drug planes that landed in the north.  Noble quickly apologized, but Briceño moved to restrain him through the courts, claiming that publication would continue to unjustly defame him and injure his reputation. The news tonight is that after Thursday’s adjournment, Noble’s attorney, Herbert Panton, made an offer of settlement to Briceño’s attorney, Senior Counsel Eamon Courtenay. We understand that their negotiations have not yet started but it is a matter of record before the court of Justice Michelle Arana, who is presiding over the case.
