Three Coast Guard Men, accused of unlawfully killing a man at sea, were each released on bail when they made an afternoon appearance in the Bridgetown Traffic Court yesterday.
Corey Andre Broome, 31, of Upper Black Rock, St Michael; Romero Alexander DaCosta Gaskin, 21, of 3rd Avenue, Inch Cape Terrace, Wellhouse, St Philip; and Shem Jonathon Chapman, 21, of 3rd Avenue, Alleynes Land, Bush Hall, St Michael, were not required to plead to unlawfully killing 47-year-old Vincentian Percival Louie, within Barbados’ territorial waters on April 22 this year.
The incident allegedly occurred off the St James coast. Louie died of gunshot injuries.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Eustace Ifill did not object to bail for the three accused but asked that they be released with strict conditions.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick confiscated the passports of the accused and released each on $50 000 bail with two sureties in the sum of $25 000 each.
The accused, who were represented by Rita Evans, will reappear in court on October 31. (HLE)
