Court revokes bail of youth accused of kidnapping local businessman

Kyle Cyril, who is accused of kidnapping a local businessman along with three others when he was just 17, was this week denied bail despite an emotional plea by his attorney Alfred Alcide.

After being out on bail for several months, Cyril was ordered remanded because he failed to adhere to the conditions of his bail.

Alcide, the attorney, however argued that Cyril was unable to comply with the signing portion of his bail conditions because his job as a security officer demanded that he spend long hours with few breaks.

Alcide also pleaded on behalf of Cyril’s mother, who is recently remarried and moved to the United Kingdom: “Your Honour, she is worried for her son, she is thinking of returning to St Lucia until this issue is resolved.”

He intimated that she was even willing to desert her marriage for the foreseeable future to come home.

The prosecution vehemently opposed bail on the grounds that not only was Cyril able to report to Beat and Patrol from his job quite easily, he worked in the centre of town, and he was now considered a major flight risk as his mother currently resides in the United Kingdom.

Bail was denied by Justice Francis Cumberbatch. However the judge stated that the situation could be reviewed if Cyril was not indicted on or before April 8, 2013.

Cyril is accused of kidnapping a local business man and holding him for several hours.  The man was forced to write checks and even cash them for the kidnappers.

Cyril is the only one of four who has been apprehended.  He was 17 at the time of the incident and is currently being held on remand at the Bordelais Correctional Facility.

  3. Great job on the part of Justice Francis Cumberbatch. 1. This young ingrate who kidnapped is working as a security officer. Who is he securing? His work experience is kidnapping!Be afraid! Who hired this boy and how are they affiliated with him?
    2. If his mother is recently remarried and moved to the UK where is this boy's father, is he around to keep an eye on him or is he a statistic like so many young men and women. If he is absent then so what if his mother has to return to St. Lucia till the issue is resolved. She is his mother and holds some responsiblity for his upbringing. Our kids did not ask to be born, we had a choice. Once we decided to bring them into this world it is our responsibility to take care of them! If the detectives cannot break him to give up his friends think of the Havoc he will bring when he eventually goes to the United Kingdom.

  4. At 17 he sorry ass should have been in school using those brain cell that cause him and the others to hatch up this "brillant" plan. Now is too late for his mother to give up her life for him. I have done so as a mother raising my daughter on my own. I belive if children get a good start even if they stray the majority will come back.

  5. Total disregard for the law!!! Beat and patrol is in the city where he works. There's no excuse for not reporting as was instructed by the law.

    • @ luciano...this matter is now in the high court which means it went through the magistrate's court where some of your points may have been considered. That's why he got bail the first time which he later violated. If you knew this individual you would understand the threat that he is. At least he got caught for this one. I agree that Social Services needs to play a bigger role but they can work on this one "In Jail." Good call Justice Cumberbatch.
