Why Didn’t Police Conduct Surveillance of David Nanes?

Bail for such a fugitive as Nanes is one thing…one very strange thing. But then there’s the matter of Police scrutiny. How is it that Nanes was allowed to just skip merrily away, with the Police none the wiser until he didn’t show up for his court-ordered check-in? PM Barrow said the media needs to ask the Police some pointed and pertinent questions because they were supposed to have him under surveillance.

“It was my understanding that was supposed to have been done. You really need to find out from them how he was able to give them the slip. I’m not yet briefed on that, but you’re perfectly correct. That was the instruction…shadow this man, because we would have found some other charge or some other basis under law to detain him again, but he obviously gave the Police the slip.”



“An issue has also been raised of the fact that the charges of other documents which he had illegally gotten…those should have been immediately brought against him as charges.”

“He was charged for whatever he was charged with…I wasn’t here. The court gave him bail. The Police immediately charged him. The Judge gave him bail right away again. I find that very unusual. I find that strange. I find that disturbing. But I am not going to go further because I don’t want to be accused of contempt of Court or casting any aspersions, but I can say I found that very strange. It means then that if we had come with other charges he would have been given bail again? Very, very worrying…but no doubt the Judge who heard the bail application and made the decision knows why he granted bail.”
