Alleged cave prisoner Natalie Williams ordered to testify

Natalie Williams, the woman who allegedly was abducted by her husband in a cave at Rinella, is still not in a position to testify in Court, despite that two months passed since the incident.

A psychiatrist has still to examine the woman to give his approval whether to testify or not in the case against her husband, Roddy Williams.

37-year old Williams from Seychelles is facing charges of the attempted murder of his wife Natalie by leaving her for three days in a dark area of the cave, without food and water. He is also charged, among others, with raping her, keeping her against her will and with drug possession.

When the compilation of evidence against Williams resumed before Magistrate Claire Stafrace Zammit, the woman’s lawyer presented a doctor’s certificate showing that she is suffering from anxiety and is not in a position to testify.

The accused defence remarked that Williams has been in custody since last November. While Magistrate Stafrace Zammit did not accept the doctor’s certificate, she ordered that the woman gives evidence with teleconferencing and that in the next hearing on Monday, Natalie Williams will testify before the Court.
