The bail application that took place today for Montserrat’s Attorney at Law, Warren Cassell, who was recently sentenced to a five year prison term for land fraud and fined $125,000, hit a glitch at the sitting of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court of Appeal in Montserrat.
According to our sources, MNI Alive understands that the Court could not properly consider the submissions made by Cassell's Attorney, due to incomplete court records from the initial trial of Attorney Cassell earlier this year. The dates in question particularly are those of February 10th and 13th, 2012.
The Justices have therefore ordered that the Court records be submitted within a reasonable time frame and a postponement of the bail application has been scheduled to take place during a June, 2012, sitting of the Supreme Court.
For his bail hearing, MNI Alive further understands that Attorney Cassell filed a total of eleven points for the court to consider. This bail application preceded Attorney Cassell’s appeal case that is due to be heard by the court later this year.
Senior Counsel, Oris Sullivan, represented the crown at today's proceedings.
Sitting on the bench today were His Lordships, Justice Ian Mitchell, Justice John Benjamin, Justice Mario Michel and outgoing Justice, Hugh Rawlins.
