Former Premier Andrew Fahie has been granted bond in the sum of $1 million but must prove that the money for his bail is from a legitimate source before being released from custody.

This follows the ruling handed down by U.S. District Judge Kathleen Williams on Tuesday May 24.

According to the Miami Herald, Judge William rejected U.S. prosecutors’ attempt to keep Fahie detained prior to his trial for drugs and trafficking charges.

He was granted a $500,000 personal surety bond in addition to the $500,000 corporate surety bond which was issued by federal court Judge Alicia Otazo-Reyes earlier this month.

The personal surety bond must be cosigned by Fahie, his daughters and a friend, and the former premier will be required to wear a GPS device so he can be monitored at all times.

In addition, Judge Williams also ordered that Fahie’s daughters and wife will have to surrender their passports, adding that his attorney Theresa Van Vliet can only visit him at his daughters’ home in southwest Miami-Dade County.

The U.S. prosecutors had argued that Fahie was a flight risk and a danger to the community, stating that his maximum sentence if convicted, coupled with the corruption allegations increased the likelihood of the former premier fleeing the United States.

Fahie’s arraignment is set for tomorrow May 25, where he will formally be required to enter a plea.
