High Court grants $300,000 bail to St. Lucian charged with murder

The high court has granted bail to St. Lucian, Fimbar Mohamed Greenidge of Ravine Poison, in the sum of three hundred thousand dollars with two sureties.

Greenidge was on remand after being charged with the murder of Chris Blanc from Fond Cole.

Blanc went missing on December 30, 2016 after spending some time with friends in St. Joseph.

On January 5, 2017, his lifeless and partly decomposed body was discovered in a small precipice in the heights of St. Joseph.

As part of his bail conditions, Greenidge is required to report every day to the Roseau Police station and must reside at Bath Estate. He is not to interfere with prosecution witnesses and is to surrender all his travel documents and not apply for any. He is also forbidden from travelling.

He is represented by Zena Moore Dyer.

Meantime, the court also granted bail to Hendricks Peters in the sum of EC$200,000.00 with two sureties.

Hendricks Peters was arrested and charged for the August 8 murder of Ezron Roberts.

According to the police, Roberts, an adult male of Montine, Grand Bay, was shot at 9:20 am on Wednesday, Aug 8, on Kennedy Avenue, at the intersection of Kings Lane, in Roseau.

He received two gunshot wounds, one to the face and the other to his leg. Roberts was transported to the Accident and Emergency Department at the Princess Margaret Hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead by a medical doctor.

As part of his bail conditions, Peters is to report to the Roseau Police Station every Monday and Friday and to surrender all his travel documents and not interfere with the prosecution’s witnesses.

    Can I ask a question ?
    is Al Capone still in jail .
    Oh how things have changed .
    Who will be held responsible if the accused takes another life while out on Bail ?
    How is the Police going to stop the accused of interfering with evidence , intimidating any witnesses or even leaving the country by one of our open shores? what we have all the resources to go looking for him in St. Lucia or elsewhere .
    DOMINICA IS ONE HUGE SHAMBLES .
    I fear for the Country. things are done so differently to everywhere else .

    I am a sister of Chris Blanc I am appalled at the way things have been done with Chis’s case, this has been going on for two years.Where is the prosecution? bail ?for a gruesome pre meditated murder?Not done in self defense but to steal the hard work of a young man. What the hell is going on with our judicial system?Who gave his time and effort to the very people who took his life. Know that our tears will never stop flowing and you will forever endure Gods justice because there is none in the land of Dominica.#JUSTICEFORCHRIS. What you do to the least of your brethren you do unto christ.

    If the accused persons are found guilty, I hope they will spend the rest of their lives in a dark, cold, lonely cell, never to see the sun again. Since they have not confessed, I’m torn between giving or denying them bail. My reason is this. In these parts of the world, the wheel of justice turns very slowly. Sometimes for years people are held on remand and they are completely innocent. Would you like to be accused, charged and arrested for four or five years in a filthy prison knowing that you are innocent of all charges laid against you? If justice had wings and not crutches, I would have agreed with the denial of bail for all accused murderers. That’s my honest opinion.

    Only in Dominica, this guy will get out of Dominica by night, had it been a Dominican murdering a St Lucian, no bail, locked up for years before trial, this guy should not be walking thè streets in Dominica period,

    No Law No constitution will stop me……Our PM told us.

    The problem is how do they expect the police to solve these murder crimes when the accused is out on bail.

    The citizens will not get themselves involved as witnesses in helping if this is the trend as they will be exposed to the criminal elements.

    Our GOVT is not interesting in that …..No Law No constitution……VOTE them Again you all poor people will suffer.

    Just ridiculous he should be in jail until his court case. Allowing bail increases the potential for more violence and putting members of the public at risk.

    This is bull crap. That man should be locked up in jail until his case is called. That man should not be given bail. Bullcrap. This is a travesty of justice. Are the judges scared of Zena, the bajan?
