KINGSTON, Jamaica:

The trial of businesswoman Hermalinda Parker, who is charged with trafficking in persons, has again been delayed.




The matter was expected to start in the Home Circuit Court yesterday but was pushed back to February 4 next year.



The bails of Parker and her co-accused were extended.



She is jointly charged with her husband Anthony, and her daughter, Lynn Scantlebury.



Parker is the former owner of the Latin Movement Nightclub at Dunrobin Plaza in St Andrew.



The Crown is alleging that young girls were recruited from abroad and forced to work at the club.
