Tambourine Army co-founder Latoya Nugent is to appear in court today to answer to charges brought against her for allegedly breaching the Cybercrimes Act.

On March 14, Nugent was arrested and charged with malicious use of computers under the Cybercrimes Act, by detectives attached to the Counter-Terrorism and Organised Crime Investigation Branch.

She was granted bail the following day.

The police say the charge stemmed from complaints about comments Nugent made online about alleged sex abusers.

Nugent has consistently proclaimed her innocence.

She has instead claimed that the charge brought against her is an attempt by the state to silence her advocacy and that of the Tambourine Army.
