The three high-profile figures charged with corruption have each been granted bail in the sum of $250,000.
West Portland MP Daryl Vaz; Head of the Community Safety and Security Branch, Senior Superintendent James Forbes; and businessman Bruce Bicknell, appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrateís Court this morning.
Forbes and Bicknell are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice while Vaz is charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.
The magistrate has ordered that the three return to court on September 5.
In the interim, they have been ordered not to make contact with the witnesses.
They should also submit their travel documents and submit their fingerprints to the police.
A stop order has also been placed on the three.
Itís alleged that on April 9, Sergeant Jubert LLewellyn had stopped a white SUV being driven by Bicknell which was speeding along the Florizel Glasspole Highway in Kingston.
Sources say the Sergeant moved to issue a traffic ticket to Bicknell, when an envelope containing the motor vehicle documents along with 2 thousand dollars was handed to him.
Itís understood that after Bicknell was taken to the Elletson Road station, SSP Forbes and other senior police officers got involved in the matter.
Sources say the Sergeant claimed that later that day, he also received a call from a male who identified himself as Daryl Vaz.
Vaz reportedly visited the Sergeant at the Elletson Road station and made an appeal on behalf of Bicknell saying the businessman was not well and would lose his US visa if jailed.
