Police statement on Cannonier / Watson case

Police have confirmed that Sophia Cannonier and Michael Watson are “inside their home under surveillance by BPS agents”.

In a press release this afternoon [July 20], a police spokesperson said: “Following a breach this morning at the Cannonier Watson Residence, the Bermuda Police Department [BPS] can now confirm that the family is in their residence which is supervised by BPS officers. Following the offenses committed today, a new case is being prepared with an early appearance in court. “

Earlier today, the Bermuda Freedom Alliance group posted a social media appeal for people to show up at their homes.

The BBC previously reported that “Appearing in court via Zoom last week, Sophia Cannonier and Michael Watson denied breaking the Covid-19 quarantine rules. The case was adjourned until August 16, and senior magistrate Juan Wolffe released the couple on bail of $ 3,000 each.

“He also asked the family to stay at their residence until they receive a negative Covid test on day 8. Public health regulations for unvaccinated travelers require them to self-quarantine for 14 days,” we therefore asked for clarification on the apparent contradiction. “

The BBC noted that it received the following response from the Department of Health, which said: “Sophia Cannonier and Michael Watson are required to self-quarantine for 14 days. We cannot comment on the court ruling on bail conditions, but the law is clear and they must quarantine themselves for 14 days. “
