JAMAICA OBSERVER – A pastor and two other members of his family, including his wife, were released on EC$5,000 (One Ec dollar =US$0.37 cents) bail each after they appeared in court here Friday on a charge of unlawfully and maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm on a man.

Pastor Nigel Morgan, his wife Althea, an office clerk, and their daughter, Crystal, pleaded not guilty to throwing a hot liquid on Cuthbert Victory, who suffered burns to his back, shoulder, face and chest, earlier this month.

Doctors said that he was doused with hot water mixed with oil during the April 9 incident.

The trio, appeared before Chief Magistrate, Rechanne Browne-Matthias at the Serious Offence Court in Kingstown, and will re-appear in the Mesopotamia Magistrate’s Court in Marriaqua, the interior community where they incident took place, on April 29.

“I hope you all make enough money — you hear?” said Morgan, as photographers too the picture of the family as they left the court building.

“I hope you all give an offering to all the churches,” he added.

Attorney Kay Bacchus-Browne told CMC on Friday that her clients have a good defense.

“It is not like what you see going around on social media where it is being said that the three of them joined together. It is not like that at all,” Bacchus-Browne said.

Morgan had earlier told CMC that the incident was ‘a spiritual warfare.

“This is a spiritual warfare. It is in the hands of God and he will fight and he will deliver,” he had said then.

Victory, a mason, and a father of two, said that he wants to be compensated for the burns he suffered as well as the loss of income.

  1. The best deal is to wait for the other side of the story-then we can wage the war with our tongues.There is always another side to the story.Why didn't they give any details?


  2. The pastor is lucky that we are not living in Old Testament times otherwise he would have been given a taste of his own medicine under the "Eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" rule.


  3. A spiritual warfare ... this has got to be some sort of news... He burns someone in this manner and yet still he has the nerve to say its in the name of ...... I am just speechless. Where was his compassion in this situation and at what time did he not realized that this isn't the way to go about dealing with matters... The folks who ought to know better behaving this way, what do we expect from the one's who don't know better.... How can this be accepted can someone explain to me


  4. Now what would inspire a pastor to commit such an ungodly act against another human being?


  5. The devil is roaming freely, there and everywhere ! The pastor and family should be made to repent in public.
