Attorney-at-law Christopher Townsend, who is representing 30-year-old dub poet Neto Meeks on a wounding charge, yesterday sought the intervention of Senior Resident Magistrate Glen Brown to stop the complainant from giving public interviews.
Meeks is charged with wounding university student Charah Watson, who is also charged with wounding Meeks.
They are on bail and have been ordered to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on December 6.
Mr. Townsend, in referring to Watson's public interviews, said she was trying the case by means of public opinion. Mr. Townsend pointed out that his client suffered injuries, which included eight bite marks on his left hand, a slash to the right hand and an eight-inch cut to his back, which was inflicted by a sharp instrument.
He also said Meeks received a bite to his right hand, and the wound could not be sutured because the flesh had been torn out.
Senior RM Brown said he would not intervene in relation to the interviews.
Attorney-at-law Valerie Neita-Robertson, who is representing Watson, in responding to the complaint, said now that she was involved in the matter, she would speak to her client about it.
The incident involving Meeks and Watson took place on September 28.
