Screen_Shot_2016-10-17_at_8.05.22_PMLast week we told you about the vehicle of Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Patrick Faber which was set on fire at his residence shortly after midnight on October 12th and how the perpetrator was caught in the act on surveillance camera. Though the man believed to be responsible for committing the illegal act was detained by authorities the following day on Thursday October 13th, no charges were levied against him until today where he was officially charged with the crime of ‘arson’.

During his arraignment earlier today in the presence of Chief Magistrate Ann Marie Smith, Allen Martinez was denied bail due to a number of reasons presented by the prosecutor who stated that one Martinez might interfere with the witnesses if granted bail, two that the offence is that of a serious nature which carries a penalty of life imprisonment, three that the prosecution has a strong case and if granted bail the defendant might not return to court and lastly that Martinez entered the yard of the complainant.

The objection by the prosecutor was supported by the Chief Magistrate who then remanded Martinez into custody until December 14th, 2016. Faber’s vehicle which was entirely destroyed by the blazing fire is valued at twenty five thousand dollars.
