Attempted murder accused gets bail release

After a month as a remanded prisoner, an attempted murder accused was on Monday granted $300,000 bail.

Sunil Pollard, who is charged with unlawfully and maliciously wounding Wayne Bollers with intent to murder him, was granted bail after a renewed application by his attorney at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts.

The police’s case against Pollard is that on November 4, at Kingston, Georgetown, Bollers and his friends were on Barrack Street when he observed Pollard bracing his cycle. The court heard that Bollers approached Pollard and asked him to desist from bracing against his cycle. An argument ensued when Pollard refused to comply with the complainant’s request.

According to Prosecutor Michael Grant, the accused left in a rage and returned shortly after, armed with a broken bottle, which he used to stab Bollers, who subsequently fell unconscious and was hospitalised.

Attorney Paul Fung-A-Fat, who represented Pollard, renewed his application on Monday for bail to be granted to his client. The prosecution had no objection, while noting that Bollers is now discharged from the hospital and has recovered from his injuries.

Pollard was subsequently granted bail and the case was adjourned until February 24.
