Bunche, Peters granted bail

Two persons who were denied bail on charges of theft and handling stolen goods have been finally granted bail by a Roseau Magistrate.

Michael Bunche, who was arrested and charged for theft of over $36,000, the property of Auto Trade, is now on bail in the sum of $50,000 with his aunt, Corinthia Blanc Esprit, standing as his surety.

His conditions of bail are that he must surrender all his travel documents, report to police headquarters every Monday and Friday, be of good behaviour and not interfere with the prosecution witnesses. The trial date is set for May 17, 2013.

Also granted bail after two weeks in custody was Nola James Peters of Roseau.

She was charged with handling stolen goods in excess of $48,000. Roseau MP Norris Prevost stood as surety with bail set at $65,000.

James was also required to surrender all her travel documents to the court, be of good behaviour and stay clear of all prosecution witnesses. She is to report to the Roseau police station every Tuesday and Friday.

Her trial date is June 3, 2013.

    So, let’s see here, a guy whom the police have told us was a fugitive from justice left the state and upon his re-entry was caught, arrested, and dragged before the courts. Yet, this same former fugitive has now been released to roam the community? It’s like, i have been hunting a rat for years. It has successfully evade me. I finally catch it, but when i do, my boss releases it and tells it that it must be a nice rat and return to see me periodically.

    We have work to do.

      Unbelievable! Any sensible person should know that under those conditions he forfeited his right to bail. One strike and you’re out. No more chances to freedom. That man should never have been granted bail. Some DA justice system. They will just keep offending and re-offending and will be granted bail. They know the ropes. This is why crimes will escalate in Dominica.

        Peeping Tom and Justice …… Michael was never arrested, charged and bailed until this incident. He was fired from Auto Trade in October 2011 and remainmed at large in Dominica untill then. Like every other Dominican he went about his legitimate business seeking other forms of employment. He was never arrested, bailed, left the country and returned. That is not so.
