A shortage of court rooms at the Montego Bay Resident Magistrates Court building forced the postponement of the continuation of the trial of dance hall artiste Mavado earlier today.

The trial of Mavado, whose given name is David Brooks, started last week and was schedule to continue today but with all the court rooms being used due to the start of circuit, the case was put off until April 23.
