A taxi driver was yesterday granted his release on $150,000 bail after being charged with raping a 14-year-old girl.
Subaschand Harrichand, 37, of Vreed-en-Hoop, was read the charge by Principal Magistrate Judy Latchman.
The charge alleged that the accused, between December 1st, 2017 and December 31st, 2017 engaged in the sexual penetration of a child under the age of 16.
The accused was not required to enter a plea to the indictable charge.
Police Prosecutor Shawn Gonsalves made no objection to bail being granted as he noted that the police’s case file is incomplete.
Harrichand was later granted $150,000 bail and sent before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, before whom he is expected to make his next court appearance on July 5th.
