Weekes also informed the Court that one of the defendants; Jan Bedminster who was charged with the kidnapping offense breached his bail conditions for a previous offense and as such should not be granted bail.According to Weekes, Bedminster was on bail of $70, 000.00 for an alleged firearm related offense.Dilon AlexanderMagistrate Evelina Baptiste remanded the defendants as according to her, “based on the nature of the accusation” the men “may likely interfere with the ongoing investigations”.Meanwhile no one has been charged in connection with Leon “Dopie” Joseph who was reported missing on the same day as Alfred and the search continues for both missing men.Dominica Vibes News 122 Views   5 commentslast_img
