A Petite Savanne man facing a murder charge has been granted bail.
Twenty-two-year-old Garry Thomas is accused of stabbing 41-year-old Stalkly Antoine on September 26th at Petite Savanne.
Thomas appeared at court last week to hear his charge but was not allowed to plea, since murder is an indictable matter. That means it will be tried before a judge and jury at the High Court.
His defense lawyer Joshua Francis made a bail application to the High Court after Thomas was remanded.
Attorney at Law, Joshua Francis.
Thomas has been ordered not to interfering with the prosecution’s witnesses as part of the condition of his bail.
He is also expected to report to the Grand Bay Police Station every Monday and Friday between 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and he is not allowed to leave the jurisdiction of the court unless he first applies for and obtains permission from the high court.
He was granted bail in the sum of three hundred thousand dollars, with two sureties.
The matter is expected to come up before the court again on January 24, 2022, for a preliminary inquiry.
