Reid and Co-Accused Bail Extended Today

Former Education Minister Ruel Reid and his co-accused including daughter Sharelle and CMU president Professor Fritz Pinnock, had their bails extended when they appeared before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court this morning.

The conditions of their bail were modified, where they are now instructed to report to the police station only on Wednesdays, instead of Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Reid and Pinnock are facing charges of breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, conspiracy to defraud, misconduct in a public office at common law, and breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act.

The two were released on bail on October 10 last year following their arrest the day before. They are to return to the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on April 8, 2020.

Their court appearance comes a day after professor Pinnock’s daughter went live on youtube to defend his stewardship of the institution.
