KINGSTON, Jamaica — Former Education Minister Ruel Reid and his four co-accused were granted bail with surety by the Corporate Area Parish Court a short while ago.

Reid's bail is in the sum of $3 million, his wife Sharen, $1 million; their daughter Sharelle $500,000; Caribbean Maritime University President Fritz Pinnock, $2 million; and Councillor Kim Brown Lawrence (JLP, Brown's Town Division, St Ann), $1 million.

The court ordered that their travel documents be seized and stop orders be placed on all five at the island's ports.

Last night, law enforcement agencies reported that the five have been charged for various illegal acts, to include breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act, conspiracy to defraud, misconduct in a public office at common law and breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act.
