Former Junior Finance Minister Juan Edghill was slapped with a charge of breaching the City’s bylaws and appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan on Monday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.Edghill pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on March 17 at South Ruimveldt he covered the southern parapet of Sugar Cane Street with a derelict vehicle.Former Junior Finance Minister Juan EdghillThe Prosecution contended the vehicle was in a derelict state when the former minister was spoken to by a constable. It is alleged that the former minister admitted to being the owner of the vehicle and was given two weeks to remove it from the parapet.In court on Monday, Edghill’s attorney Sase Gunraj challenged the charge on two grounds: one, that the definition of derelict vehicle in the charge was wrong; and two, if instituting such a charge the prosecution must be able to establish ownership of the vehicle.However the prosecution in their argument stated that all four wheels of the said vehicle were deflated, hence it’s derelict state.Edghill maintained that the vehicle is in full working order.He was placed on self-bail and the case will continue on April 25.
