Court Found Compelling Reasons to Make Rare Grant

Richard ‘Dickie’ Bradley

According to Bradley, had Grinage not been lucky enough to have had proof to support the claim that he was not involved in the homicide, he would have languished on remand indefinitely.

 

Richard ‘Dickie’ Bradley, Attorney at Law

“The judge was very clear; he does not give bail for those two offenses.  When you facilitate somebody by giving them a gun to shoot someone, knowing that they are going to shoot a particular person, you ought not to be getting any kind of bail.  So clearly the judge looked on the information and in fact, I want to highlight that the Senior Crown Counsel Sheneiza Smith was in agreement with our petition and the information that supported the petition that in this particular case something had gone wrong with the investigation for them to include Elroy Grinage in something he had no kind of knowledge, no kind of business with at all. So I mention that so point out and to say that the judge, having started off by saying that bail is not something that anybody charged with abetment or conspiracy to commit a murder they will get.  But when he looked at the documentation, when he carefully reviewed the situation he gave bail in the sum of ten thousand dollars which is basically to put forward a land paper document.  And he made comments and in fact he instructed me to include some of his comments in relation to the matter. Point is that Elroy Grinage, had he not fallen into what would be good fortune, in relation to being able to bring documentary evidence to support that he could not have taken part in that matter, he would be in jail for a long time awaiting the trial in regards to this very, very serious matter.”

 

Grinage’s bail comes with strict conditions which sees him surrendering all travel documents and checking in with Belmopan police weekly.
