Police Prosecutor, Shawn Gonzales, strongly opposed bail being granted, citing the seriousness of the offence, its prevalence in society and the penalty attached to the charge. Gonzales added that if granted bail the defendant might not return to the court.

Meanwhile, Pascal Smith of Pike Street, Kitty also made his appearance on Monday before Magistrate Latchman on robbery charges as well.

It is also alleged that on February 23, at Pike Street, while armed with a knife, he robbed Shabidee Khan of one cell phone valued $120,000 and $20,000 cash.

Prosecutor Gonzales again objected to bail.

Both matters were adjourned to March 20.
