ST.GEORGE’S, Grenada, June 16, 2020 CMC – A former advisor to Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell, is due to return to court on July 23, after he was slapped with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of indecent assault.
Cletus St. Paul, 63, was placed on EC$20,000 bail, after he was arrested on Monday.
