[www.inewsguyana.com] – The injunction which bars Johnny Anthony Welshman from publishing any material relating to allegations he has made against Speaker of the National Assembly, Raphael Trotman still stands.

Today, Wednesday, October 15, Welshman along with his Lawyer, Peter Hugh and Trotman’s Attorney, Nigel Hughes met with the Chief Justice (AG) Ian Chang where the matter was adjourned again, this time until November 04.

Welshman had moved to the High Court, seeking to have the injunction filed against him by Trotman discharged which was granted by the very High Court. He claims that he wants the injunction lifted so that he can make some other damning revelations, which he has recorded.

According to Hughes and Hugh, the CJ has granted leave to the Speaker to file an Affidavit in response to Welshman’s affidavit.

Welshman was seen limping into and out of the Court. He claimed he was beaten and gun butted last weekend by three men in a moving taxi which he was forced to jump from, sustaining injuries about his body.

Welshman has also been ordered to remove all malicious content from his Facebook Page.

In his Ex Parte Affidavit in support of the application for the injunction, Trotman has also sought damages in excess of $50 million for libel contained in statements allegedly made by Welshman and published in the local dailies – Stabroek News, Guyana Times – and on Welshman’s Facebook page.

The young man in question made damning revelations on his Facebook Page against the Speaker, stating that he had sexual intercourse with him some ten years ago. He has since made a report to the Guyana Police Force.

Trotman on the other hand, has denied the allegations, claiming that the young man is mentally unstable.

The Speaker believes the young man was motivated by politicians to make these accusations against him in an effort to divert attention from a serious upcoming matter in the House when Parliament reconvenes.

  1. If Johnny A. Welsham is on Facebook, as the article states, I’m sure if you log onto Facebook and do a search with his full name, you can locate him and send him a private email with the attachment you have. Good luck.

  2. if nigell hughes can get his buddy in as jury foreman to allow well known killers of babies then expect him and his wife to condon wrong doing at all times.
    that was all the proof needed how nighell does win impossible cases in guyana.
    nighell hughes was exposed in the linden COI where international judges made him look like a first year law student..

    you better watch out they dont put a gag on you too not to show those photos..

  3. I believe this young man story, further I have photos with this said Johnny Welchman and Nigel Hughes and Cathy Hughes at the jazz festival and NAPA in Trinidad I am shock and disappointed in Nigel and Cathy to stand next to Trotman after such atrocity. I would like an email or a contact or Johnny or his Attorneys so I can give them these photos.

    Time to stamp these people out.

  4. justinwil, it seems to me that you getting to understand this whole thing. but let me explain things a little further: whatever young Welshman said has already been printed in all sections of the media and everybody knows about these allegations that have been made. even if Welshman take them from his facebook page it doesn’t matter at all,they are already all over the place. you rightly use the word”muzzle.” what trotman is afraid of is not the repeating of the allegations already made by young welshman but the gory details that are still to come from Welshman! the usual reaction from people who may be guilty of rape and sexual abuse is to go on a violent offensive . you must read about the Italian doctor caught on tape abusing his patient and you will see what I mean. trotman reaction of “overkill” in this affair tells me something about him that is not right. it really surprises me that the chief justice would take trotman’s word and muzzle the boy because trotman say the boy is mad . trotman is no psychiatrist and even if he is one he is the accused ,and he is just trying to defend himself at all costs. but this is rather unfair to the young man.

  6. Lol @ bobby. But bobby there seems to be a serious effort on the part of trotman to muzzle someone who is “mentally unstable”. Seems like there is some truth to mr. Johnny accusations.

  7. EVERY OTHER ACCUSED RAPIST ,CHILD ABUSER , AND BUGGERER MUST TAKE NOTE .THE LAW IS ON YOUR SIDE. YOU DONT HAVE TO TAKE A VICTIM BEFORE A PSYCHIATRIST TO PROVE THAT HE/SHE IS MENTALLY UNSTABLE. YOU JUST HAVE TO GO BEFORE THE CHIEF JUSTICE AND SAY THE CHILD IS MAD AND YOUR PROBLEM IS OVER. MEANWHILE YUO CAN CONTINUE BUGGERING WITH THE CONFIDENCE THAT YOU WILL ALWAYS GET OFF.
