#TurksandCaicosIslands, October 9, 2023 – A 31-year-old Providenciales man is accused of sexual abuse of his own daughter during the pandemic lockdown of 2020; the complainant is his own child.

We will give only the initials of that man, DF, in an effort to protect the young accuser.  DF is also facing two counts ofsexual assault; one count of indecent assault and he has to answer to one count of sexual activity with a child family member.

DF, who appeared in the Supreme Court on Monday and Tuesday (September 25th & September 26th) to be tried, had his case stalled due to insufficient jury attendance on both days.

The mother came in support of her daughter on both days; the daughter is ready to testify against her father for what she is alleging happened to her between the June 1 and August 31 in 2020; a period of three months during the COVID lock down.

The case was adjourned to November 6, 2023 by The Hon. Lady Justice Ms. Tanya Lobban Jackson with thanks and apology to all 14/15 jurors who came and had to wait hours on both days and to all other parties involved in the matter that did not proceed.

The defendant, who is on bail in this matter, bail was extended to the new trial date.
