Court Grants Shannon Motion For Inclusion In US$1.5m Bond

By Comfort M. Johnson

MONROVIA January 10 (LINA) – The Judge of Criminal Court “C”, Yamie Q. Gbeisay, has granted co-defendant Eugene Shannon’s motion to be included in the US$1.5 millon bond filed by other defendants in the Sable Mining bribery case.

The US$1.5 million bond was in May 2016 filed by co-defendants Varney Sherman, Christopher Onanuga and E.C.B. Jones as a criminal appearance bond for the three of them.

In his ruling Tuesday, Judge Gbeisay said in the mind of the court, in the absence of a specific statute or decisional law prohibiting the extension of a criminal appearance bond to cover a defendant who was later indicted for the same crime, the court will not deny such motion as filed by co-defendant Shannon.   

“The movant’s motion though not supported by law, being sound in reasoning, same is hereby granted and the resistance not being supported by law is denied,” Judge Gbeisay said in his ruling.

He further indicated that since the object of the criminal appearance bond is already approved by the court, the defendant should make day-to-day appearance in court.
