The child sex abuse case involving former president of the Moravian Church in Jamaica, Paul Gardner and his former deputy Jermaine Gibson, is set to be next mentioned on May 24.

The matter was mentioned in the Manchester Circuit Court today.

The prosecution is applying to have the case transferred from the Manchester Circuit Court to Kingston.

But attorney representing Gardner, Peter Champagnie, says the prosecution today asked for more time to review material served by the defence for both former ministers.

Champagnie says the bail for both ministers have been extended until then.

Gardner and Gibson are facing carnal abuse and indecent assault charges.

The charges stem from sexual relations they allegedly had with a minor from as far back as 2002.
