(SNO) — The police have charged journalist Rehani Isidore in relation to a bomb hoax at the Vigie Airport on February 20.

He was arrested and charged on March 20, 2019 on two counts of bomb hoaxes and attempted suicide in relation to the hoaxes.

Isidore was escorted to the First District Court where he was granted bail in the sum of $2,500 each on the two bomb hoaxes in cash or suitable surety and on his own recognizance for the charge of attempted suicide.

On Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at about 6 a.m, law enforcement officials responded to a report of a bomb threat at the George F. L. Charles Airport in Vigie.

On March 5, the police issued a statement saying that “on February 28, 2019 one individual was taken into police custody” in relation to a bomb threat to George Charles Airport at Vigie.

“On the same evening, the suspect was transported to Victoria Hospital having ingested a substance,” the statement continued.

It went on to say that “the suspect is in a critical condition at a medical facility and has not been charged”.

The statement was deemed confusing by many and by the time of its release, rumors were swirling everywhere that the suspect was in fact Isidore.

To add fire to the confusion the Media Association of Saint Lucia (MASL) released a video statement saying that Isidore “continues to fight for his life” in hospital without giving a reason for his hospitalization.

“We understand that rumour and speculation has and will exist but while we await official word from the relevant authorities, MASL makes no further statement on the matter,” MASL president, Miguel Fevrier said in the video.

In relation to the arrest and charging of Isidore, the police quoted Section 362 (2) of the Criminal Code which states as follows:

Bombs, hoaxes, sending messages or articles to alarm or injure other persons

(2) A person who communicates any information which he or she knows or believes to be false to another person with the intention of inducing in him or her or any other person a false belief that a bomb or other thing likely to explode or ignite is planted in any place or location is liable on conviction on indictment to imprisonment for 5 years or on summary conviction to imprisonment for 2 years.

Section 94 of the Criminal Code states;

Aiding and abetting of suicide, attempt to commit suicide

A person who—

(a) aids and abets the commission of suicide by any person, whether or not the suicide is actually committed is liable on indictment to imprisonment for 20 years;

(b) attempts to commit suicide is liable on conviction on indictment to imprisonment for 2 years

  3. Section 94 of he Criminal Code needs to be revisited and parts of it changed.

    A person who attempts to commit suicide, or commits suicide is in need of Mental Help, not Imprisonment.

    St. Lucia, please stop living in the dark ages. Keep up with the rest of the world and learn more about Mental Health.

  5. So sad. Rehani has the voice and was the bomb, a rising star in the media fraternity. Now what would make him implode like that by making a bomb hoax on the airport of all places. That bomb hoax which caused Rehani's career to implode is easily one of the most explosive stories so far for 2019.

    I Proclaim that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down” …. In the name of Jesus.
    The Father says: Treacherous times are upon you my children and what is coming will be far worse. The darkness an evil that awaits those that are not saved now will be worse than Hollywood’s darkest horror film for Satan’s wrath shall be upon them. Who are you to judge me, yet you have and judge me guilty besides? Do you think you can serve me with anger in your heart? You judged me neglectful of you. Who gave you life? Who gave you your next breath and the very air you breath? Yet you sit high on the throne of your pride and you rendered judgement to me, the judge of all creation? Repent now lest I strike you down. Repent on your faces before unless you think too highly of yourselves. The door of heaven is soon to be closed and the grace upon my people shall be reduced. Your days are going to be difficult as everything in the world changes.
    Much treachery will be revealed but much will be kept hidden. Know in this time that what you see is not what is. Darkness lurks behind the governments you trust; much evil is planned and will soon be released. Snares will be set for my people as the enemy’s plans are unleashed, many who are mine will die and come home to me, but this is my mercy on them. Those who are Luke-warm will be left on the earth that their faith may be refined. Guard your hearts my children for evil abounds as never before. Be careful when you feel you stand lest you fall and lose your faith. Great is my peace upon my people, great is my peace upon you in this time. It is that peace that will sustain you when you see my words fulfilled to the last jot or tittle. You have been chosen for this time and empowered to do what you must do. You are my voice in the earth and I call the heaven to myself through you.
    You will be the last generation to spread my gospel to all people. The end comes quickly and with it comes “War”, “Disease” and “Famine.” Pray to be counted worthy to escape that which is to come but work while it is day my people. Work while it is day for the darkness approaches, and it will overtake the earth quickly when it arrives. My people I desire to warn you about what is coming, most of my people are not taking my warnings seriously. But this they shall regret later. The sounds of war are already ringing in the unseen realm and it is already preparing. War comes to America and to other nations, this will be a terrible war for such as you have never seen. It will reap terror in your heart if you are not abiding in me. Those who do not know me shall have no where to run from the terrors this war shall bring.
    I have told you that I will cleanse this nation, and I shall. I am raising up Armies to come up against you America and you shall be cleansed. My remnant shall arise from the ashes of this cleansing, they are a remnant strong and holy that speak my word, that carry my word, that tarry not, neither do they complain about for they are about their father’s business in the earth. You are not ready my people for what is coming, you are not ready to see the world around you destroyed in this way, but it is coming. Prepare your hearts and minds for what is to be for I will have a “Bride” without spot or blemish. As war preparations are being made, as the enemy is setting snares for my people, as destruction grows out on the land. Where are my people? Why are more of my people not praying? Why are my warriors not fighting in the spirit against these evil plans?
    Scripture must be fulfilled my children, but all that is being planned does not have to happen as the enemy desires. Much more mercy can abound if my people stand and fight and stop worrying over their own concerns and spending time on worldly pursuits. I have left you weapons that you may be well-armed, I have left you my instructions and my holy word, yet you play like unruly children as the unsaved go about in darkness. As destructive plans play out, arm-up my children. Arm-up and go to the battles for my desires instead of your own, fight in prayer that the enemy will not prevail. Do you not know that I bless those who spend time doing so?
    Do not know that it is to them that I give blessings and anointing and show them miracles? Why do you tarry, arguing silly points and running to and fro in the earth? Be about your father’s business and do my will and not your own, that I may bless you. If you stand by and watch the enemy roll out his plans and do nothing, then you yourself will be caught in his snares. The enemy has long awaited the time that is now upon you my children. For hundreds of years he has been planning his attacks on my people.
    * These are the words of – Yahushua.
    * Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed, no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANY ONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, bold and courageous.

  13. Someone is clearly trying to mess him up. First was the whole Chastanet (uncaring fly minister) situation, in which they forced him to make a public apology and now this. Whoever is doing this should really leave him alone!!!
