North Side candidate Joey Ebanks appeared in Grand Court on Friday morning, when his legal representative asked for the matter to go off until Friday, 14 June.
Attorney Fiona Robertson, who was holding for Ben Tonner, explained that there are some charges against Mr. Ebanks that are still in Summary Court. She said it was proposed to hold a committal hearing so that they could be joined with the Grand Court charge of obtaining a money transfer by deception.
That charge alleges that he obtained $1,188.63 belonging to the Electricity Regulatory Authority by falsely representing that the funds were required for official travel expenses. He is former managing director of the authority.
Other charges alleging dishonesty include theft and obtaining property by deception.
The Crown agreed to the adjournment and Justice Nova Hall set the matter for the requested date.
Mr. Ebanks is due to return to Summary Court for a committal hearing on 4 June, when drugs-related charges against him will be mentioned.
