TUESDAY, JANUARY 31: A campaigner against the Bermuda Regiment appeared in Magistrates’ Court today accused of failing to turn up for Regimental duties.

Lamont Marshall, 27, a member of Bermudians Against the Draft (BAD), was charged with disobeying an order to pay a $500 fine without reasonable excuse as a man of the regiment.

He was also charged with disobeying an order to report to Warwick Camp on January 6 as a man of the regiment.

Mr Marshall denied both charges.

Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner adjourned the matter for a week.

He said: “In my experience, I have never seen where a person is prosecuted in this court for failing to pay a fine to the CO [Commanding Officer] which seems to be an internal matter.”

Mr Marshall was given $1,000 bail.
