Blogger drops another lawyerPOSTED: 10/9/15 4:15 PM
St. Maarten – Blogger Judith Roumou, who will appear in court on October 21 on charges of insulting a lawyer and a policeman has severed ties with attorney Cor Merx, who represented her at a hearing at the Judge of Instruction last week Tuesday. The court released Roumou, after she was arrested on Monday morning for the insults.
Now Roumou has written a letter to the prosecutor’s office and the Judge of Instruction that she does not need Merx’ services anymore. “She is free to go and ask who (and how many lawyers) she wants to represent her,” Merx said in a brief statement.
Earlier, Roumou was represented by Zylena Bary. Merx represented her at the Judge of Instruction last week, because other lawyers had conflicts of interest and could not take her case.
