AFTER 11 days on re­mand, Michael Carew, the long-time com­pan­ion of for­mer gov­ern­ment min­is­ter Mar­lene Mc­Don­ald, has accessed his bail.

His bailor was ap­proved by of­fi­cials at the Port-of-Spain Mag­is­trate’s Court on Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

 Carew was the last of the five corruption accused to go home after getting his bail approved.

Mc­Don­ald, Carew, Wayne An­tho­ny, Vic­tor McEachrane and Edgar Zephyrine are fac­ing 49 charges that allege at­tempts to de­fraud the gov­ern­ment by procur­ing funds through Carew’s Cal­abar Foun­da­tion.

Mc­Don­ald, 61, is fac­ing sev­en charges – two for con­spir­a­cy to de­fraud, four for mis­be­hav­iour in pub­lic of­fice and one for mon­ey laun­der­ing.

She was grant­ed $2 mil­li­on bail and se­cured her free­dom last Fri­day from the St Clair Med­ical Cen­tre where she was re­ceiv­ing med­ical treat­ment af­ter be­ing charged last Sun­day.
