Shaleeza Mohamed informed the court, being presided over by Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, that she did not want to proceed with the matter against the accused.
Mohamed was not required to pay costs for wasting the court’s time.
Meusa was on GUY$150,000 bail for the offence that he allegedly committed on June 15 at High Street, Georgetown. He had pleaded not guilty.
The prosecution’s case was that about 6:30 PM, Meusa and Mohammed were in a minibus when he demanded that the driver stop the passenger vehicle. She had claimed that on exiting the bus, he grabbed her bag and after she resisted he pulled out a cutlass from his waist and brandished it.
She then retaliated by kicking him out of the vehicle.
