No Trial Date Yet for Hartin; Andrew Ashcroft Moves to Turks & Caicos with Kids

The June session of the Supreme Court commenced today and it was anticipated that Canadian national Jasmine Hartin would have been at court. News Five has confirmed with attorney Dickie Bradley, that the trial date for the woman charged with manslaughter for the shooting death of Superintendent Henry Jemmott has not been set as yet. That process, according to Bradley, will see Hartin indicted in the Supreme Court. Thereafter, the case will likely see several adjournments as other cases also to be heard. There will be a case management to determine which statements are relevant and thereafter, a possible trial date is set. Attorney Bradley says the best bet is that the trial will commence at the end of the year or early next year.

Coincidentally, Andrew Ashcroft, with whom Hartin shares a pair of twins, issued a release today saying that along with his family, he has moved to Turks and Caicos. On May twenty-fifth, Ashcroft was given legal custody of the twins. Ashcroft says the move is to perform his new job of developing a similar hotel to the Belize Alaia Hotel. The release says “I hold no ill will or malice towards Jasmine and wish her well with the court proceedings in which she is facing charges of manslaughter, cocaine possession and common assault. During the hotel development process, and at a time when we were working together, I had gifted to jasmine ten percent of the issued share capital of the holding company of the Belize Alaia Hotel. I intend to obtain an independent valuation for these shares and to provide her with their fair value.”
