Berbice newsman facing domestic abuse charges

Berbice television cameraman/reporter Michael Khan is facing seven counts of assault along with a charge of damage to property committed on his reputed wife Shaline Samaroo.

The thirty-year-old TV newsman of Nurseville, New Amsterdam, denied the charges when he appeared before Magistrate Adela Nagamootoo  in the New Amsterdam Court yesterday and he was placed on $20,000 bail.

The Channel Eight employee is alleged to have committed the assaults, one  of which caused actual bodily harm on the complainant whom he lived with for a year.

The offences allegedly took place between September 6 and November 3 last  at the home which the couple shared with Khan’s two children from a previous relationship.

The defendant was represented by attorney-at-Law Michael Baird. The case is fixed for hearing on February 14.
