A Gun Hill man charged with armed robbery of a Rillan Hill resident on Monday asked the Serious Offences Court to allow him to report to Questelles rather than Kingstown, as the court had initially ordered as part of the bail condition.

Oranda Telemaque, 29, told Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne-Matthias that he feared that the virtual complainant, Quincy Boyd, would make an attempt on his life in Kingstown.

Telemaque was ordered to report to police at the Questelles Police Station on Wednesdays, between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.

Other bail conditions includes the posting of EC$6,000 with one surety and that he surrender his travel documents.

The man returns to court on July 24 for preliminary inquiry into a charge that on Feb. 21, 2018 at Rose Place, being armed with a gun, he robbed Boyd of one black Blu cellular phone value, CAD$500, one Digicel SIM card, value EC$15, one 32 GB Samsung memory card, value EC$90 and EC$200 in cash, and at the time of doing so and in order to do so, put Boyd in fear of being then and there subjected to force.

Telemaque was not required to plead to the indictable charge.

  1. No wonder the criminals from neighboring islands are running to our country because they know it’s paradise for criminals who gets very light sentences and a pat on their back for job well done. SMFH …. Let me see how this one will be concluded but I can predict it already. Joker judicial system and judges!!

  2. Do you really have to publish details of the courts ruling, including the accused scheduled police visit, in a case where the accused says that he fears for his life?

  3. A.Mckenzie . says:

    Is it a case of the chickens have come home to roost and is sitting on the alleged gunslinger ‘s kitchen table? Why should he be afraid? […] One alleged gunslinger now fears for his very life. Did he take the victim’s safety into consideration when he allegedly carried out the robbery? There is a presumption in law that the court will not side with a person who has dirty hands. It’s unbelievable now that he wants the law now to protect him. I would ask a hypothetical question, will society be better off if one gunslinger in St Vincent were to annihilate another gunslinger? This is my rhetorical question.
