‘Seko’ gets bail

The High Court in Roseau today ordered the magistrate’s court to grant bail to Earl ‘Seko’ Grant who has been charged with conspiracy in connection with a fire at the home of former magistrate, GON Emanuel in December 2010.

The ordered was issued by Justice Bernie Stephenson earlier today and Magistrate Bernard Pacquette, in compliance,  just moments ago,  granted bail in the sum of $20,000 with Grant’s  mother and sister serving as sureties.

As conditions of bail he expected to report to the St. Joseph police station every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm.

Grant and Denny Shillingford, who has been charged with arson in the same matter, were both denied bail by Chief Magistrate, Evelina Baptiste on Thursday.

At the hearing, the prosecution led by police inspectors Claude Weekes and Michael Laudat told the court that the men were “flight risks” and they feared that they would interfere with witnesses and also that the investigation was still ongoing.

Baptiste held that the prosecution had failed to show the court any evidence of the men interfering with witnesses but she agreed to bail on the issue of absconding because, according to her, while the prosecution had not brought forth much evidence, she was concerned about a statement of the DPP which requested Grant to come to Dominica or the state would seek extradition. She said it’s clear that he did not return on his own free will since he was a US citizen and feared losing his citizenship.

Bruney gave the court notice on Thursday that as soon as his client, Denny Shillingford, who is presently serving a prison sentence is released he will be filing documents in the high court to get his bail.

    On the instructions of the Director of Public Prosecutions, no further evidence is offered against Secko and the Case is Dismissed for Want of Prosecution.

    Before you throw your support ignorantly behind the perpetrators of this crime, remember this “mama or papa manje waizen dan zanfan glasci” (mother or father eat grapes and it’s the children teeth that’s on edge) it simply means what you do today will affect your children and your generation for life, if you love them think twice.

    This is very confusing to me,they are accusing a man of conspiring to burn down a house with two people occupying the house at the time that the arson is being committed and they charge hime with conspiracy to committ arson? If GON was on vacation and his house was vacant, that would be Arson, if his business place was torched after hours, that would be arson, but what is the spirit here, were they trying to destroy his property? I think not, they were trying to kill him and who else was occupying the home at that time, so you count the occupants of the home and then that is how many counts of ATTEMPTED MURDER.This is a joke for real because based on the charges you can see they are not serious about persuing this, you can be charged with arson or conspiracy to commit if you set fire t and abandoned building, are you trying to get the general public to understand that burning an abandoned building and burning a building occupied by two senior citizens is the exact sam crime? So lives are not worth anything in Dominica.Mr. Prevost, do not sell your soul for power, do whats right and file the proper charges, Conspiract to commit Arson, and two counts of conspiracy to commit attempted murder, just look at it this way, if that gentleman and his wife had died in the blaze would it still be arson, just because the attempt failed does not mean it should be excused. Do whats right and restore the public’s faith in the judicial system.

    This country is in one stinking mess. This mess started in 2000 but really got worse from 2004, and we are at the center of it now.
    It is a country destroyed by greedy politicians,and their cronies off course with the help of a political police force too.

    Seco getting bail was never an issue. We all expected him to be bailed at some point. What bothers me though is the unwillingness of the authorities to get to the bottom of it. If they wanted, Seco would have been arrested less than a month after GON”s house was bombed. Why did they allow it to go to three years before someone was charged is the million dollar question that cannot be answered and will never be answered. The DPP knows very well that their case is weak as it is going to be Denny Shillingford’s word against Earl Grant’. At the end of the day the game plan is, the judge / magistrate will give Earl Grant the “Not guilty” verdict and that will be it. However, the true Judge, who knows every one of those bombers by name and address will deal with them one by one and His judgement on them will be worse than the joke of the court. He is no respecter of persons and will deal with all of them whether they are police officers, lawyers, politicians. cabinet members, farmers or fishermen. All will be judged by Him and the latter will be worse than the former.

    Secko, Hen these are names we call you on the block in St. Joe and I still consider you as a friend. I will not allow if you are guilty of these crimes to destroy our friendship, however I am concern now more than ever that if you did this and return here to flaunt the might of your powerful connections it will hurt not just you but your entire family for generations. I say this because as silver and gold needs fire to remove their impurities, so does the crucible of public humiliation, and therefore one cannot commit a crime and expect to live a normal life. Therefore, I pose this question to you because I know you can read and comprehend: 1) Would you prefer to live a life knowing in your heart that you were part of this matter? 2) If you are not part of this crime why did you not show the desired eagerness to clear your name? I know why I said that because nothing is more important to a person than their good name, especially at the time of the phone interview with Tony no mentioned was made of apprehending you. 3) What was the purpose of you coming now that there is heat aka extradition heat? Doc, I know living in the States can desensitize person feelings as I have lived through it myself having lived there for many years, but I just feel like we are close enough that I can post these questions. Note: I will be the first to stand with you son, but for now I am really conflicted as to your innocence; so help me understand?

    I feel sorry for the young men who got themselves in this mess. I feel sorry for their families. Let’s get this over with so that the innocent can get some relief and the real guilty parties face justice.

    I have the greatest respect, in general, for the noble legal profession and law enforcement. I don’t understand everything about this case, but all will agree that much of its handling just doesn’t smell right. Frankly, if I was in law enforcement or a lawyer in Dominica, I would give our profession a failing grade in this case. I would be deeply embarrassed at what is being done in my name.

    Is there no courage and self-respect among lawyers and prosecuting officers in this country? GON Emmanuel is one of your own! Don’t we have any respect for the man’s age and his long distinguished career? Aila, magwaysa! I hope I am wrong, but from what I see, there is no way this can be just arson. Clearly, this is gross intimidation and attempted murder.

    Don’t you what happend in Germany before WW2? Don’t you know how one of the world’s most advanced and sophisticated nations quickly degenerated into the worst band of murderous thugs in history?

    How did that happen? Pastor Martin Niemöller explained that when the Nazis came for the communists, those who were not communists did not speak up because they were not communists. When they came for the trade unionists, those who were not trade unionists did not speak up because they were not trade unionists. When they came for the Jews, those who were not Jews did not speak up because they were not Jews. When the Nazis finally came and got them, they cried out, but there was no one left to help them.

    It is the investigative journalists and media who have aced this test. It is the concerned citizens of Dominica who have continually spoken out – they have passed this exam with flying colors. Take a bow! Thanks to you, we have seen some progress. Let no one say, you did not have a conscience. Let no one say, you did not speak out.

    The Rev. Dr. MLK declared that “The Arc of the Moral Universe Is Long, but It Bends Toward Justice”. It has taken a long time so far, but justice will be done. Law enforcement and the legal profession, you still have time to improve your test score. Government of Dominica, you still have time to ensure that justice is done – and I believe it will. At the end of the day, what happens here on out, that’s what will define us as a democratic people. As a self-respecting Dominican, I really, really want us to pass this test.

    And I believe we will.

    these magistrates, judges, police in dominica are all full of it. judge is asking for evidence that can prove he will interfere with witneesses or fly away home. evidence. well when he do interfere with witnesses of fly away then she will be satisfied. there is what is called circumstancial evidence and yes one can be found guilty by circumstances before, during or after the fact where physical evidence is not required. the big guns who are the physical players in this case will come as noctunal creatures and approach this seko and we’ll hear the next of this soap opera. wait. i say to wait.

      What ridiculousness gushes forth, unrestrained, from your mouth? Indeed the Judge is absolutely correct; the State MUST provide evidence (circumstantial or direct, or both) to support their claims of “…flight risk… and “…interference with witnesses…” If the State cannot provide any such evidence then they cannot rely on such an assertion to deprive an accused person of their Liberty. Contrary to your implied assertion, “…circumstantial evidence…” is not “gossip.” It is constituted of provable facts.
      Bottom line, it is better that you say nothing, if you know nothing, than to gush utter foolishness and thereby confirm the level of your lack of knowing.

    May 31, 2013

    I remember the last time I saw a dead person in a confine; I said to myself wow!!! No matter how much fuss we make on God earth we cannot decide our fate. So, why does it seem like we think we are winning yet we are really loosing? The only thing I could come up with is the element of money that changes the life of country bookie guys from St. Joe now turns lawyer rub shoulders with people of influence. I remember growing up and being called a country bookie and generally relegated to the sidelines because I did not fit the mold of what constituted an accepted in-group person because of where I came from (St. Joseph). Today success knows no boundary and so does money and, as such one can find people from deep country being Prime Minister and by extension close the country bookie gap that brought such embarrassment to say where you from back in time. I brought the above to light to draw the attention of many not necessarily those who either endured these moments, but are guilty of hurting so many young men and women of Dominica who only felt accepted when they lived in the Roseau and environs area. Zooming back to the matter at hand one has to wonder against the back-drop of where my friend Earl Seko Hen Grant is from there is no way in Hell he would muster such support back in the country bookie time; now, can anyone attempt to answer why this change of heart? Well, I brought this perspective because I believe that my friend made a mistake like many of us either have done, about to do, or will do because we are too keen to impress people of money and influence because we do not know our worth. Finally, I believe that educated people have taken a hit on this one because in this case it appears that Grant got used by someone who knew they had more to lose, and he grant had nothing too loose. Well, let’s face it God does not like ugly.

    Anthony Astaphan is the voice of Dominica whether we like it or not. No matter what everyone says or thinks, unless Tony opens his mouth nothing is done and for that we don’t need prime minister, president, police commissioner, magistrate, judge, and court house.
    It was only yesterday two very good lawyers went all out to secure bail for their client, Earl Grant. The paid chief magistrate Ms. Baptist denied bail on the basis that he might run away.
    Today all Tony had to do was go on DBS and challenge the DPP and Daniel Carbon and before the day was up, guess what? Earl Grant was given bail. But see how it happened: The High Court ordered the magistrate court to grant bail to Seco and their man was bailed.
    Who tell all you the court in Dominica is about justice? Boy it is ALL about what Tony says.

So far I am right on que and these jokers will just continue to play their game. The knew very well that by delaying everything by three years was just to give those big men on the ground enough time to destroy evidence. Now they just going through the motion.
    Think of this guys, folks are being caught with locally grown weed and when caught they have to think of $25K to bail them out. A man charged with conspiring to arson, yet it only takes $25K to bail him out. What about the concerns chief magistrate Baptist expressed yesterday? I Dominique!

If you manage to get their CXC or GCE grades you will see what I mean. Yet these folks believe that they can take on persons who are qualified in their field and have a good track record.

    As for the bail, he did return on his own free will on his own money. He could have allowed the DPP to try to extradite him but he chose not to so why wasn’t he granted bail in the first place?

    “The High Court in Roseau today ORDERED the magistrate’s court” What! A command!

    Bailed at $20,000 Nah, Nah Nah. I am sure Seko has that amount on hand to gave to his mother and sister in the event he escapes. And that measly amount for bail for such a heinous crime? Let the games begin. I am watching the plot unfolds. Can you guess what the next course of action will be in this mysterious saga?

    that’s the beginning of the “play”, did they ask for him to submit his traveling documents as part of the bail condition ? If not he can escape again and all he will lost is $20,000 which is pocket change for them guys with these big ties.I am still not impressed with that court system , Honestly i think all that is part of the play , how comes he was only charged for conspiracy when he was alleged to be the driver which means he “aided and abetted”. Trust me the actors start to play their roles lets wait and see who will be the last actor or actress.
