The case against popular Beautician Onika Pompey, who was charged for making a derogatory Facebook post about former Soca Monarch winner Kwasi Edmondson, was today dismissed.
Senior Magistrate Leron Daly dismissed the matter after Edmondson asked for an apology, noting that he did not want to see anyone go to jail.
In March, Pompey was hauled before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan in the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and pleaded not guilty to the charge, which stated that between October 29 – November 8, 2021, she made a derogatory Facebook post about Edmondson.
She was released on $200,000 bail on the condition that she reports to the Gender-based Unit at the Brickdam Police Station every first and last Friday of every month.
In 2020, Pompey was awarded an $800,000 settlement from Lolita Callendar, popularly known as “Lola,” after being found guilty of causing her grievous bodily harm.
