Two men who have been accused of being the masterminds behind the $40-million fraud uncovered at the Customs Department this year have been granted bail.

They are Steve Glenister, 32, and Phillip Glenister, 30, customs brokers of Kingston addresses.

Senior Resident Magistrate Georgianna Fraser granted them bail yesterday in the sum of $5 million each with sureties after hearing a bail application from defence lawyer Peter Champagnie.

They are to return to the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on July 3.

Several other persons have been charged in connection with the fraud.
