THE GRANDMOTHER of the three children rescued recently from an abusive home and taken to England by their father, said she was shocked when the man accused of raping her 14-year-old granddaughter was granted bail last week on his second appearance at the District “D” Magistrates’ Court in three weeks.

“I am very angry,” Jewell Taitt told the SUNDAY SUN, pointing out that she sat in the courtroom during the proceedings last Wednesday when the court dealt only with the matter pertaining to the marijuana charges.

She said she did not know whether the magistrate was aware of the issues surrounding the case.

“I was sitting in court when the case called and the prosecutor did not say a word,” she explained. (MB)
