Subject: Beauty Queen Back in Court

Beauty queen Cheryl Ankrah is set to square off with local Miss Trinidad and Tobago/Universe franchise holder Peter Elias again this week, when a lawsuit in which she accuses Elias and Associates of beach of contract comes back up in court.

Hearing is set for Wednesday in the Port of Spain Civil Chamber Court before Justice David Myers, who, on February 19, granted an injunction against Peter Elias and Associates from choosing anyone to replace Ankrah until the case is decided.

The lawsuit had come up for a full hearing on February 23, but did not proceed because Elias and his pageant company, Peter Elias and Associates, had not filed any response to Ankrah's claims.

Justice Myers granted the adjournment to allow Elias and Associates to file an affidavit and also to allow time Ankrah to respond, if necessary.

The fall-out between Elias and twenty-six year-old Ankrah reached a head on February 6, when Elias announced that Ankrah, who had been crowned Miss Trinidad and Tobago/Universe in August 2004, was stripped of her title.

Ankrah had been out of the country at the time, and Elias refused to say why the decision had been reached mere months before the pageant was scheduled to come off.

After failed attempts to reconcile their differences, Ankrah took her case to the High Court and obtained the injunction.

The court order was served on Elias shortly after it was obtained--one day before he had planned to hold a mini-pageant to select Ankrah's replacement.

The injunction prevents Peter Elias and Associates from taking away from Ankrah the title of Miss Trinidad and Tobago/Universe and from offering the right or entitlement to anyone else.

If this country is to compete in the pageant, scheduled for May 30 in Thailand, the name of the local contestant must be supplied to the US-based Miss Universe Organisation by April
