The committal proceedings for the nurse who was charged with fraud in connection with fake COVID-19 vaccination cards has been delayed.
Jahmesha Millwood appeared in the St. John’s Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, March 17, but her matter was adjourned to May 18 due to certain administrative reasons.
Millwood has been slapped with 21 counts of falsifying COVID-19 vaccination cards.
She is alleged to have forged and issued up to 50 of the fake cards for which she reportedly was paid hefty sums.
The nurse was taken into custody by the Police last November, after they got word that she was involved in the alleged scam.
Reportedly, Millwood was signing and filling out the cards when she was not one of the nurses authorized to administer the vaccines.
Her licence to practice nursing in this country has reportedly been revoked, and the 29-year-old Bolans woman is out on $5,000 bail.
Meanwhile, Chinese national Tianzhao “Alex” Feng has been committed to stand trial in the High Court on the charge of arson.
Feng appeared before Magistrate Conliffe Clarke in St. John’s Magistrates’ Court on March 16 and was committed to the May Criminal Assizes.
He is accused of setting fire to his former place of employment, the once-popular XPZ Supermarket on Sir Sydney Walling Highway.
Feng, who disappeared hours before the fire, turned himself over to the Police on June 7.
