After close to three weeks on remand on an attempted murder charge, 34-year-old Glen resident Lejah ‘Soups’ Alexander has been granted bail.

Alexander has been charged with the attempted murder of Rockies resident Lionel George, who was shot in his head during an incident at Lower Middle Street, Kingstown, around 9am on November 5.Alexander was denied bail on his appearances at the Serious Offences Court November 8 and November 16, on the grounds that the victim was hospitalized with a bullet wound to the head, and was being monitored closely by doctors.However, on Alexander’s return to Court on Tuesday, the Senior Prosecutor indicated that the victim was discharged from the hospital, and he was no longer objecting to bail. He, however, requested suitable surety and conditions.Chief Magistrate Rechanne Browne granted bail in the sum of $30,000, on condition that he report to the Calliaqua Police Station twice a week, and surrender his travel documents.Stop notices will be placed at all ports of entry and exit, and he is not to leave the state without the permission of the Court.

  1. Unheard of in any other country. A man charged with attempted murder given bail.

    Only in SVG is the Prime Minister, his Police, DPP, and Judiciary so backward as to allow such a procedure to take place. He must a ULP supporter.
