Barry Merrith Wallace DePeiza, 47, returned before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court yesterday but his matter could not continue since the final prosecution witness was on holiday, Station Sergeant Neville Watson said.
DePeiza, of Fairfield Road, Black Rock, St Michael denied using insulting language toward Senator Irene Sandiford-Garner on January 16, 2013.
The accused allegedly said: “Irene Sandiford you is a dog; all of wunna up there is real dogs,” while within the precincts of Parliament.
When the gardener first went before Magistrate Douglas Frederick, he was granted $2 500 bail and ordered to stay away from the Parliament buildings. Those conditions continue.
DePeiza is being represented by attorney-at-law Gregory Nicholls.
