The British police officer who was recently extradited to Antigua was denied bail when he appeared before the All Saints Magistrates Court today.

The 25-year-old man allegedly raped a foreign student while he was visiting this country in 2015.

Police said the accused went back to the UK before he could be apprehended and charged for the offence.

During the hearing, the man’s lawyer John Fuller attempted to secure bail for his client.

The application was rejected by the Magistrate who citing in part that the defendant who has no ties to this country is a potential flight risk.

The accused is being held on remand at the former US Airforce Base Detention Center.

He is due back in court for committal proceedings on November 5

  1. The man from England had England to fight on his behalf so he wouldn’t go to the nasty prison. Sadly for Antiguans there is no one to stand up and say the prison is not good Enough for Antiguans. Maybe the leaders of Antigua that we elect should fight for our rights and protect us the way England protected her own citizens Don’t be mad at the English man sans England cause they look out for their own. Antigua leaders and politician and those in charge are ok with putting Antiguans in that nasty prison so they will continue to put Antiguans there. England stood up for what they believed in and stated that the place was in humane which it is. Nobody standing up for Antiguans. Maybe we should think about that the next time we vote! So stop complaining. England is only looking out for her citizens. DONT HATE THE PLAYER! Antiguans should demand leadership who will look out for them same way! Now somebody else get a better deal cause their leaders looked out for them don’t hate …. nothing was being done about the conditions at the prison … y’all didnt know until England said it was horrible to complain … BE QUIET and continue to go in the dirty prison cause no body was complaining before or u would complain and nothing is being done! Antiguans must learn to stand up! Protest for what they believe in…. only when England say the prison bad everybody a run dem mouth!
