Taxi driver charged with using unlicensed radio set

A taxi driver accused of using an unlicensed handheld radio set for wireless telegraph was yesterday admitted to bail in the sum of $60,000 by Magistrate Hazel Octave-Hamilton.

The allegation against Owen Bledman, 43, is that on January 9, 2010 at King Street, Georgetown, he used a Motorola handheld radio set for wireless telegraph without licence.

The resident of LL Bent Street Wortmanville, Georgetown, denied the charge of use of apparatus for wireless telegraph without licence when it was read to him at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

No facts of what transpired on the day in question were presented to the court.

The prosecution had no objection to the accused being granted his pre-trial liberty.

Magistrate Octave-Hamilton subsequently granted Bledman bail and transferred the case to Court One for November 7.
