Grenada,  CMC – Adapted: A magistrate court will decide on Wednesday whether or not to grant bail to a Guyanese-born journalist charged with two counts of stealing, forgery and uttering a forged document.

Rawle Nelson, who in July 2013 began working as a consultant and managing editor with Moving Target, the company which owns Meaningful Television and is also the publisher of the weekly Grenada Informer newspaper, appeared in court Tuesday for a bail hearing..

But following arguments by his attorney Dereck Sylvester,  Magistrate Karen Noel said that a ruling would be made on Wednesday.

Nelson, who had been in police custody since last Wednesday,  has been charged with two counts of stealing EC$15, 394.28 cents (One EC dollar = US$0.37 cents) by reason of employment, forgery and uttering a false document.

Nelson, who once worked in St. Kitts-Nevis and is the managing director of marketing company Optimum Solutions, has been remanded to the Richmond Hill Prison.

Nelson four years ago while he forged his ways in Montserrat was spared police investigation when he was urged to leave the island and not return, as he faced accusations similar to the charges he now faces in Grenada.
