Janice Samuel fails to make $200K bail, remanded to prison


Janice Samuel was granted bail to the tune of $200,000 in the All Saints Magistrates Court on Thursday.

Samuel, who until recently was a co-host on a program on Observer Radio, was ordered to provide two sureties and pay $50,000 of the bail money to secure her release.

Samuel was remanded to prison after failing to come up with the $50,000 cash component required as part of her bail conditions.

Samuel was recently charged with 14 counts of obtaining money under false pretenses after police alleged she illegally obtained over $100,000 from H2one Ltd in Hodges Bay between March and July this year.

She was reportedly working at the plumbing company as an office assistant at the time of the alleged offences.

Just last week, Samuel received a two-year suspended sentence after admitting to stealing money from Connies Comfort Suite, where she worked as a consultant in 2016.

In 1997, she was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment with hard labour for similar offences.


  1. SMH!!! It beats me as to why this lady is making such practice, repetitive….. Don’t she learn from her mistakes… Someday she perhaps will realize that the bucket goes to the well everyday but one day the bottom will drop out…. May the good Lord have mercy on her!!!
