By Rickie Ramdass

GENERAL SECRETARY of the Public Services Association (PSA), Nixon Callender, was yesterday granted bail in the sum of $20,000 by a Port of Spain magistrate, when he appeared in court charged with assault.
Callender appeared before Magistrate Cheron Raphael in the Third Court charged with assaulting Joanne Caprietta on August 19 last year.
The offence allegedly took place at the PSA’s headquarters along Abercromby Street, Port of Spain. Upon his appearance, Callender, who was represented by defence attorney John Heath, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
A large number of PSA members, including the association’s president Watson Duke, was present in court when the matter was called.
Caprietta was also said to be a member of the association.
As a condition of his bail bond, Callender was ordered to report to the Cunupia Police Station every Monday and Friday. He will return to court on April 16.
