KINGSTON, Jamaica — Member of Parliament Daryl Vaz had his bail condition varied today in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court allowing him to travel overseas.

Vaz is to appear in court on October 2 when he returns to the island.

Vaz, Senior Superintendent James Forbes, and businessman Bruce Bicknell are each out on $250,000 bail after they were brought to court following a ruling by the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Vaz had travel restrictions imposed as a condition of the bail.

Forbes and Bicknell are charged with attempting to pervert the course of justice, while Vaz has been charged with breaches of the Corruption Prevention Act.
