Leon Casimir was charged with possession of cannabis and possession with intent to supply. Evan James, a senior teacher at the Pierre Charles Secondary School, was Casimir’s surety.
Upon granting bail, Magistrate Baptiste asked James whether he still wanted to stand bail for Casimir having understood the significant quantity of cannabis he was allegedly confiscated with; however, James was not deterred.
Casimir’s bail conditions are that he reports to the Grand Bay Police Station every Friday, Sunday and Monday between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and he is required to inform the police of any change of his address. Given the fact that Casimir’s travel passport expired since 1999 and he never applied for a new one, Baptiste also ordered that he surrender his passport if he should be issued a new one during his bail period.
