"Language barrier" 
21 November 2013

A man accused of an offence of public order has had the case against him adjourned until next month.
Rohan Sivanathan, 37, of Northover, Ilchester, appeared before Somerset Magistrates sitting at Yeovil.
He was charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress during an incident at Yeovil on October 12.
Sivanathan, a Sri Lankan, did not enter a plea and the case was adjourned until December 12 when an interpreter will be present after the court was told there was a "language barrier".
Until his next court appearance the defendant was given bail on condition he does not enter Middle Street in Yeovil.
