A seaman was yesterday released on $30,000 bail after he pleaded not guilty to using abusive and threatening language to his common-law wife.
Deeno Bacchus, 45, of Riverview, Ruimveldt, was charged in Georgetown with using abusive and threatening language to Indra Kellawan.
According to the prosecution, Bacchus committed the crime on November 20th, at Riverview, Ruimveldt, Georgetown. The prosecution objected to bail, while indicating that Bacchus habitually abuses Kellawan and, given that they reside together, there was concern for her safety.
Kellawan told the court that Bacchus, with whom she has three children, had threatened to kill her. She also told the court that he no longer provides for her and the only reason she has stayed in the abusive relationship was her children.
Magistrate Judy Latchman advised Kellawan to file for a restraining order against Bacchus. Bacchus was granted $60,000 bail by the magistrate and his next court date is on January 11th, 2016.
