FORMER Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam is among the list of notable locals who have sided with local Miss Universe franchise holder Peter Elias as he defends the lawsuit brought against him by beauty queen Cheryl Ankrah.

Ankrah, who had been crowned Miss Trinidad and Tobago last August and was to compete in the Miss Universe 2005 pageant, was stripped of the title last month by the pageant company, Peter Elias and Associates.

She subsequently sued for breach of contract, and an injunction preventing a replacement queen remains in effect until her lawsuit is determined.

The parties reappeared yesterday before Justice Amrika Tiwary-Reddy in the Port of Spain Chamber Court, and Ankrah's attorney, Denyse Gouveia, asked for an adjournment to allow Ankrah time to file another affidavit.

The judge granted the request and set the matter for trial on March 16 and 17.

The Express understands that Fitzwilliam, who copped the Miss Universe title in 1998, has filed an affidavit on behalf of Elias, who has himself filed an affidavit in the case.

Health promotional director Gerard Alfonso, who has served as personal trainer to Miss Trinidad and Tobago delegates and Guardian editor-in chief Dominic Kalipersad, who sat as chief judge of the panel which selected Ankrah, have also filed affidavits in support of Elias' case.
