Kitchener South-Hespeler MP Marwan Tabbara's criminal case is now adjourned until the end of October.

The 36-year-old was arrested in April and charged with two counts of assault, as well as one of breaking and entering to commit an indictable offence and one count of criminal harassment.

Tabbara was elected as a Liberal in 2015 and 2019 but left the caucus to sit as an Independent in June after the charges became public.

There is a publication ban covering details of the case.

Tabbara's lawyer told a virtual courtroom in Guelph Friday morning that the defence is having ``productive discussions'' with the Crown attorney.

She requested a one-month adjournment which was granted until Oct. 23.
