Media neutral citation
[2007] SCSC 54
Gaswaga, J





  1. ROGER EULENTIN (Accused)

  2. KEVIN ZELIA (Accused)


Criminal Side No. 31 of 2005



Mr. Esparon for the Republic

Mr. Hoareau for the 1st Accused

Mrs. Antao for the 2nd Accused




Gaswaga, J


The applicant, Mr. Kevin Zelia (A2) contends that he has been detained in prison, on remand, for now a period of over two years yet his case is fixed for hearing on the 19th and 20th July, 2007. That he does not feel safe while in prison because some other inmates assault him and as such fears for his life. It is to be noted that the applicant’s co-accused was enlarged on bail.


In these circumstances I find it just and fair that the applicant should also be released on bail on the same conditions as those set for Mr. Roger Eulentin (A1) namely:-

  1. The accused should enter a bail bond in the sum of Rs. 20, 000/- with two sureties to be approved by the Court.


  1. The accused should not leave the jurisdiction of Seychelles without an order of this Court.


  1. The accused should not interfere with the witnesses or the course of justice in this case in any way or get involved in any criminal activity.


  1. The accused should surrender his passport or any travel document issued to him to the Registrar of the Supreme Court before the release order is signed.


  1. The accused should report to the nearest police station being the Central Police Station every Monday and Friday before midday.


  1. If any of these conditions are breached this order for bail will be revoked and the accused will be remanded in custody.


The Registrar is to convey this order to the Director of Immigration and the Commissioner of Police.


I so order.




Dated this 22nd day of January, 2007.
