A Guyanese visitor, who allegedly assaulted a woman in last August, will remain on remand at HMP Dodds.
The 47-year-old vendor, known only as Mankad, was staying at an apartment in Pine Road, St Michael before he was imprisoned last September after appearing in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court accused of the indictable offence, which allegedly occurred on August 24.
When he returned to court yesterday he appealed to Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant for bail, saying jail was not the place for him.
“I getting plenty problems in prison due to my eye . . . . I don’t see good, . . . my eye got cataract. I hungry in jail, I have no family and I am not Bajan. I begging for bail,” he said.
However, his application was denied and Mankad was remanded for a further 28 days.
The accused man, who has a similar case pending in the Holetown Magistrates’ Court, returns to court on March 1.
