A 41-year-old man was granted bail in the sum of ,030,000 when he appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’
Courts before Magistrate Judy Latchman slapped with a causing death by dangerous driving charge.
Robert Grant pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on May 23, at Garden of Eden Public Road, East Bank Demerara, he drove minibus BSS 5550 in a manner dangerous to the public thereby causing the death of Keith Andrew Simon.
The Police are contending that the 37-year-old farmer was walking along the roadway heading south when he was struck by the minibus and killed.
Grant was represented by Attorney-at-Law Darren Wade, who made an application for the bail to be reduced, pointing out to the court that his client could not afford such a substantial bail. However, the lawyer’s submissions were overruled.
The case will continue on June 10.
