YouTuber Chris Hughes to appear in court today

Canadian YouTuber Chris Hughes, aka Chris Must List, will have his day in court today.

Hughes has been in police custody since last week, and will finally appear in court today to face sedition charges.

He is expected to be represented by attorney Criston J Williams.

The T&T Police Service charged Hughes with sedition, after videos showed him interviewing reputed gang members in various parts of the country. Among the areas he allegedly visited were Tunapuna, Morvant, La Horquetta, Belmont and Sea Lots.

Sgt Lee, of the Special Investigations Unit, formally laid the charge.

Hughes allegedly posted videos featuring individuals professing to be gang members, advocating criminal activities and using threatening language.

Following his detention, Hughes was interviewed and informed of the allegations against him, following which Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard directed detectives to charge him under Section 4(1) (c) of the Sedition Act.
