Speaking to Citi News, his Lawyer, Charles Pouzing said he was released after the Court was satisfied with his bail terms.

“There were bail conditions that were imposed. The duty of the Police was to go according to the orders of the judge in terms of the bail condition, and that is what they were going through to satisfy themselves that indeed they had met the bail conditions ..,” he explained.

He said the case has been adjourned to the August 26 “by which time the prosecution will decide whether to prosecute or to proceed with calling witnesses."

“If they are not ready then maybe another adjourned date will be given,” he added.
