THERE WAS no bail on June 29 for a former KFC junior supervisor who is charged in connection with the robbery of an employee of the same fast food restaurant.

Alvin George Chung, now 37, of Searles Plantation, Christ Church, who is on remand at HMP Dodds, was back in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court, where he was not required to plead to robbing Llewelun Walthrust of $69 881 and US$1 259 belonging to KFC last December 31.

He first appeared in court in January.

The prosecution renewed its objection to his release, which prompted Chung’s attorney Kaviar Callender to make a spirited plea for bail, including that Chung’s younger brother had been missing for at least a month and that the accused should be there for his family. (HLE)
