In St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the prosecution today withdrew the wounding charge against Annamay Lewis, the woman who was accused of striking Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves in the head during a protest on August 5th.

Yesterday, Lewis’ lawyers Kay Bacchus-Baptiste and Israel Bruce had predicted that the prosecution would drop the charge.

Lewis, a 56 year old vendor of Layou, will only now be tried on a charge that on August 5th in Kingstown, in a public place, to wit White Chapel Road, she threw missiles to the danger of persons who were present.
