Former premier Andrew Fahie remains in United States custody while prosecutors appeal the $500,000 bond offer he received during a May 4 court hearing, according to a source with knowledge of the situation and documents filed Thursday in the US District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

In a “notice of appeal and motion to stay entry of [the] bond pending review,” US Attorney Juan Antonio Gonzalez requested that the bond entry be stayed until the appeal is completed, adding that prosecutors are seeking to revoke the bond.

Mr. Gonzalez added that prosecutors needed the transcript from the May 4 hearing in order to prepare the motion for the bond revocation.

“Undersigned counsel is in the process of obtaining that transcript, and will prepare a more thorough motion for revocation of bond upon receipt,” Mr. Gonzalez wrote.

He did not respond to requests for comment.

Oleanvine Maynard

Also on Thursday, public defender Michael Caruso filed an “invocation of rights to silence and counsel” on behalf of Oleanvine Maynard, who, along with Mr. Fahie and her son Kadeem Maynard, is facing charges of conspiracy to import five kilograms or more of cocaine and conspiracy to launder money.

“[Ms. Maynard] does hereby invoke [her] rights to remain silent and to counsel with respect to any and all questioning or interrogation, regardless of the subject matter,” Mr. Caruso wrote, adding that “any contact with the defendant must be made through” him.

Mr. Caruso did not respond to requests for comment.

Mr. Maynard’s attorney, public defender Melanie Turnbull, declined to comment.
