Two men have been bailed in the sum of $80,000 each, after pleading not guilty to the possession, and intent to supply 97,000 grams of marijuana.

 

The men who are, Johnny Telemaque of Calibishie and, Ian Massicott of Paix Bouche, appeared before chief magistrate, Evelina Baptiste on Monday February 13th.

 

The men who were represented by, attorney at law Zena Dyer was able to convince the court, to grant her clients’ bail even after objections from the prosecution.

 

However, as soon as the defendants stepped out of the courtroom, they were re-arrested, by officers attached to the financial intelligence unit (fiu), in connection to money laundering.

 

During the court hearing, police prosecutor Claude Weekes objected to bail, on the ground that the FIU, had been conducting investigations on Mr. Telemaque with regards to money laundering, and if released, Mr. Telemaque could hinder the ongoing investigations.

 

However, Mrs. Dyer made a strong argument to secure bail for her clients, stating the prosecution was not making a point, that the clients would not attend court for bail to be denied.

The conditions of the men bail, is that, they were put on a 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. curfew until February 29th, 2012.

They also have to surrender all travel documents by 3 p.m. on Tuesday February 14th, and to report to the nearest police station twice a week.

The defendants were found with the alleged cannabis, at new found land in Calibishie on February 8th, 2012.

Their trial is set for may 8th, in Portsmouth.
