Bibi Safora Salim was granted GYD$200,000 bail by Chief Magistrate Ann Mc Lennan and ordered to return to court on May 11, 2016 for the commencement of the trial.

The divorced mother of three, who resides at Lot 19 Bud Sreet Vergenogen, East Bank Essequibo pleaded not guilty to attempting to excite hostility and ill will towards the Guyanese leader on Facebook between March 1 and 31, 2016.

Police also said that  between March 1 and 31 via Watsapp, she attempted to excite hostility and ill will to Granger by making a derogatory remark by sending to her son Mohamed Salim by cellular phone a picture with racial comments.

Defence Lawyer, Euclin Gomes said the woman was not technologically savvy, but Prosecutor Neville Jeffers countered by saying that she is was not technologically challenged as she used a password to gain access to the computer.

The prosecution intends to lead 14 witnesses.

        Focus on issue…unless personalities become integral to the issues!


    This government is getting funnier and funnier as the days go by, they have harmon making deals with Chinese companies that are raping Guyana and it’s people, they have brassington hiding in Florida after thieving Billions of dollars from the Treasury , they have deonarine of GPL who stole $27 million dollars of the people’s money and they allow him to run away to Canada and they are going after a divorced woman with 3 children for using racial slurs against the President, the keystone Kops really don’t have not a shit to do in Guyana, they should be out catching their bandit friends.
    50 Years of raising a bunch of idiotic, egotistical, arrogant, and corrupt politicians, that’s what Guyana has achieved for 50 Years and they are going to spend millions of the tax payers money to sport up about it. what a waste..
