Fearful for his life a 62-year-old man today opted for time on remand instead of freedom.
Edwin Edward Maughan, of Charles Rowe Bridge, St George is accused of uttering to Republic Bank (Barbados) Limited a cheque made payable to him for $90,000 knowing it to be forged.
The accused was not required to plead to the indictable charge which allegedly occurred on October 15.
And although there was no objection to bail from Station Sergeant Carrison Henry, Maughan told Magistrate Douglas Frederick “somebody trying to kill me . . . so I feel safer up there [HMP]. Them telling me they know my family and everything.”
Maughan will next appear in the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on November 19.
