Guyanese national Rawle Nelson, who is accused of stealing from his former place of employment, was last week Thursday morning granted permission to travel outside of the country to seek medical attention by a St. George’s Magistrate Court
According to Nelson’s defense counsel, Attorney-at-Law Derek
Sylvester, the No. 2 Magistrate’s Court in St. George’s, presided over by Magistrate Tahira Gellineu has dismissed “all indictable charges him.”
In July 2013, Nelson was employed as a Consultant with Moving TargetLtd., the company that owns Meaningful Television and is also the publisher of the weekly Grenada Informer newspaper.
The Guyanese was charged with two counts of stealing EC$15, 394.28 by reason of employment, forgery and uttering a forged document on April 20th, 2014.
Nelson was initially granted bail in the sum of EC$100, 000 with two sureties, and was ordered to surrender all traveling documents.
Attorney Sylvester was successful in his submission to the Court for his client to be granted permission to travel on the grounds that he is claustrophobic and suffers from chronic diabetes.
Information has not been forthcoming as to when Nelson is expected to leave the island or when he is expected to return.
However, the matter was adjourned to June 12.
