GBH accused released on $25,000 bail


A man alleged to have taken part in an assault that left another man beaten and set on fire was released on $25,000 bail yesterday.

Justin Cameron, 24, was charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Jamar Malik and unlawfully depriving him of his liberty.

The incident is alleged to have occurred on September 9 in Pembroke. The defendant did not enter a plea as the case must be heard in front of the Supreme Court.

The court heard that Mr Cameron’s co-defendants, Jahni Holder, 24, and Ayinde Eve, 25, both from Pembroke, appeared before the court last Tuesday for the same offences.

Both defendants were remanded in custody until the November arraignments session of Supreme Court.

Senior magistrate Juan Wolffe ordered Mr Cameron, from Pembroke, to have no contact with the alleged victim or members of the jury.

He also ordered him to visit the Hamilton Police Station three times a week, adhere to a 6pm-to-6am curfew, wear an electronic monitoring device and to stay in residence.

Mr Cameron was ordered to return for the November arraignments session of Supreme Court.
