Four men, including three government workers, who are facing drug charges, were granted bail in the High Court on Friday afternoon.
The men, who have been charged with possession of 30,000 grams of cocaine and possession with intent to supply said cocaine, appeared in a Roseau Magistrate Court on Thursday morning but were denied bail.
The matter was taken to the High Court and bail was granted in the sum of $150,000 each.
The atmosphere outside the court was carnival-like and one observer said it appeared the entire community of Petite Savanne came out in support of the men.
Garneth Jolly, 46, of Loubiere an employee at the VAT Unit and Orlando Moise, 30, of Petit Savanne, an employee of the Ministry of Finance, were represented by attorney at law Wynante Adrien-Roberts.
Francis Moise, 26, of Petite Savanne, an employee of the Ministry of Education and Clinton Harriette, 32, a bus driver of Petite Savanne, were represented by Joshua Francis.
As condition of bail the men are to report to the Grand Bay police station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 5:00 and 7:30 am.
They are to surrender all travel documents and stay away from any port of exit on the island and have no contact with anyone associated with the matter.
