Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) employee, 33-year-old Karla Cherese Morris, who has been charged with two counts of theft, was granted $2,000 bail today when she appeared before the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today.
It is alleged that on May 15, Morris, of Mount Friendship, St Michael, with a view to gain for herself or another, dishonestly falsified a record in the Barbados Licensing Authority Administrative and Accounting Computerized System, made or required for the Barbados Revenue Authority Accounting purposes.
The Administrative Assistant denied the charge after it was read by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Criminal Court this morning.
The accused, who is being represented by Attorney-at-Law Arthur Holder, also said she was not guilty of stealing $500 belonging to the Crown.
With no objections from police prosecutor, Sergeant Cameron Gibbons, the accused was released after her surety was accepted by the Magistrate.
However, her freedom came with some conditions. She had to surrender all her travel documents to the court before she was allowed to go free.
Morris must also report to the District ‘A’ Police Station every Tuesday and Friday before noon with valid identification.
Her matter was then adjourned to August 30, when she will make her second appearance in the No.1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
