November 5, 2018

A court in Jamaica has reportedly issued an arrest warrant for a 31-year-0ld Bermudian who failed to appear in court on drug charges, according to a story in the Jamaica Gleaner.

The story said, “The St James Parish Court has issued a warrant for the arrest of a Bermudian national who should have appeared in court on cocaine charges on Thursday but who had somehow managed to leave Jamaica despite a stop-order forbidding his departure.

“Thirty-one-year-old Paulos Francis, of a Loyal Hill, Devonshire, address in Bermuda, was on bail in relation to charges of alleged possession of, dealing in, and attempting to export three and a half kilograms of cocaine. His case had been set for a case management hearing and the setting of a trial date.

“However, when the case was mentioned on Thursday, it was revealed that Francis left Jamaica on October 21 although a stop-order was in place to prevent him from leaving the country.

“The revelation did not go over well with presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small, who immediately ordered a warrant for Francis’ arrest.”
