The two policemen who allegedly tried to solicit money from a businesswoman who was found in possession of a quantity of uncustomed cigarettes have been granted bail.
Constables Greg Drummond and Anthony Thomas, who are assigned to the Hunts Bay Police Station, St Andrew, were each offered 200 thousand dollars bail with sureties when they appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.
Attorneys-at-law Peter Champagnie and Vincent Henry, who are representing the men, had filed a writ of habeas corpus on Monday for the release of the policemen who had been in custody for a week without being charged.
After a question and answer session yesterday the policemen were charged with breaching the Corruption Prevention Act.
It is being alleged that after the businesswoman was arrested and taken to a police station, the two policemen allegedly tried to get her to pay them to drop the charge against her.
