According to the Roseau Magistrate’s Court, Lee Anthony and Cuthbert Charles were allegedly caught with the said cash in their possession on December 17, 2009 at Bioche.
The men did not plead to the charge since it is an indictable matter which is to be heard at the High Court of Justice before a judge and jury following a preliminary inquiry at the Magistrate’s Court. This inquiry is due to begin on March 8, 2010.
Bail was opened in the sum of $100,000 for both defendants, however only Charles was granted bail. Anthony was remanded until tomorrow because his surety was not accepted since he lacked the means to stand bail for him.
Some of the conditions of Charles’ bail were that he surrender his passport and travel documents and report to the Coulibistrie Police Station every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 7 am and 7 pm.
Other conditions of his bail include that he remains housebound everyday from 7:30 pm to 6:30 am for the next 16 days.
If granted bail tomorrow, Charles will be released under the same conditions. He is expected to report to the Roseau Police Station.
Attorney at Law Zena Dyer represented Charles while Dawn Yearwood Stewart defended Anthony.
