The director of public prosecutions (DPP) is to take over the cybercrimes case of Tambourine Army co-founder, Latoya Nugent.

When the case was called up in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court this morning prosecutors indicated that the DPP’s office has decided to intervene.

The court was further informed that the DPP is reviewing the case file.

The case was then adjourned until Friday and Nugent’s bail further extended.

Nugent, who is being represented by attorney-at-law Ian Wilkinson, is charged with three counts of using a computer for malicious communication.

She is being accused of making defamatory statements about alleged sex abusers.

Nugent was arrested and charged by the police following complaints from persons whom she allegedly defamed.
