The computer technician, who allegedly entered A&E Electronic Store and attempted to uplift a cellular phone on behalf of Minister of Housing and Water, Irfaan Ali, yesterday appeared before Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry, at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.
Thiry-nine year-old Damon Bailey of Craig, East Bank Demerara, who is alleged to have committed the act on January 29, last, offered to explain his version of the story to the court yesterday.
Bailey said that he believes he is being victimised, because of a previous matter that he had with the law, and that this is just a “trumped up charge”.
The accused said that he went to the electronic store to repair his cellphone and was told that it would cost $2000. He further stated that he went to the Maraj building to transact some personal transactions, and it was there that he was approached and accused of carrying out the act in question.
Bailey explained that he was not in a position to pay the $75,000 that had been set as bail. He claims that he has sickle cell disease and begged the Chief Magistrate for leniency.
In his plea, Bailey claimed that both his parents are dead and he only has one brother who lives overseas and suffers from the same disease.
He told the Chief Magistrate that he could not even afford to pay $5000, if that was the amount set for his bail. Bail remained at $75,000 and the matter was adjourned until February 24
