People’s National Party (PNP) councillor for the Morant Bay Division, Rohan Bryan, and businessman Ludlow McWhinney, are to return to court today on corruption charges. 

The two, who are on bail, last appeared before the Morant Bay Resident Magistrate's Court in St Thomas on May 28.

They are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice.

It is alleged that they attempted to prevent a minor and her family from moving forward with a case against a pastor.

The pastor, Byron Graham, of Prospect in the parish, is alleged to have taken the minor to his home in 2012 with the promise of a family meal.

However, it's alleged that he forced her to have sexual intercourse with him instead.

Graham was taken into custody in July 2014 and charged with rape, sexual touching, and sex with a minor.

He is currently out on bail.
