CJM stays flawed bail to U.S. ship crew

Tuticorin Chief Judicial Magistrate K. Venkatasamy on Friday granted interim stay of the conditional bail granted on Thursday to 35 men, including the crew of the detained U.S. ship, ‘Seaman Guard Ohio’.

The court passed the order while hearing a criminal revision petition filed by the ‘Q’ Branch police against the conditional bail granted by the Tuticorin Judicial Magistrate I, C. Kathiravan.

The CJM stayed the order saying that the conditional bail, with surety of Rs.10, 000 each, in a serious incident posing a challenge to national security, ran counter to the order passed in the case by the High Court a few days ago and a few other similar cases by the Supreme Court.
