The admin of the popular Facebook Forum, Yumi Toktok Stret (YTS) is currently behind bars for breaching court orders.
The Supreme Court issued a warrant to remand Julian Ligo yesterday morning. Another associate of YTS is also remanded in custody.
Last August, YTS News put out an article accusing John Tonner of attempting to bribe a former Member of Parliament and current caretaker Minister in return for an alleged favour.
On October 11, 2019, Supreme Court Judge Gus Andree Wiltens ordered that Julian Ligo and two other respondents in the case be restrained from making any Facebook posts that relate to the Applicants, namely, South Sea Shipping as First Applicant, John Tonner as Second Applicant, Third Applicant which is Main Wharf Management Limited and Tonner Investments Limited as Fourth Applicant.
They were restrained by way of Facebook handles in their names, any Facebook handle they control or by way the Facebook handles of their agents and assigns against the applicants on their Facebook profiles, the Facebook profiles, page/group known as Yumi Toktok Stret and Yumi Toktok Stret News which the defendants control, jointly, or severally.
The Respondents were also ordered to delete all posts that relate to the Applicants on the Facebook profiles and group-page Yumi Toktok Stret, Yumi Toktok Stret News and any other affiliate pages and groups which they control.
Mr. Ligo and other Respondents and their agents or assigns are also prohibited from making any posts or publications on Facebook that relate to the Applicants.
According to court documents, the respondents failed to appear for the hearings on this matter and made no attempts to pursue the case, although they were given the opportunity to respond.
On February 4, 2020, Justice Wiltens noted that the offending posts remain in the public domain and that the defendants remain in contempt of court.
He indicated that the warrants for the arrest of the respondents were to be issued.
The warrant to remand was initially issued for three people. One more director of YTS is yet to be remanded.
