15,000 bail for Belle and Smith

COURT TODAY BLOCKTwo men whose bail application was refused last week, were granted bail today at $15,000 each.

Jose McDonald Belle and Ryan Andre Smith, both of Storey Gap, Codrington Hill, St. Michael, first appeared before acting Magistrate Elwood Watts last week, on a charge of unlawfully wounding Arlond Atwell with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him, or to cause him some serious bodily harm on Kadooment Day.

On that occasion, Station Sergeant Irvin Kellman expressed concern that the complainant was still hospitalized and the charge could very well be upgraded should he take a turn for the worst.

The matter was adjourned until today so the court could be updated as to the complainant’s progress. The court heard today that he had been discharged from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and the prosecution thereafter withdrew is objection to bail.

The accused are now to report to a police station every Friday before 9 a.m. and are not to interfere with or harass Atwell “in any way, either directly or indirectly”.

Belle and Smith return to court on October 6.
