MILTON, Ont. — One of two women accused of forcing a Cuban-bound flight back to Canada for allegedly making drunken threats against tha aircraft was granted bail on Friday.

Milana Muzikante, 26, appeared teary-eyed in a Brampton, Ont., court when she was granted release on $2,500 bail.

Her co-accused, Lilia Ratmanski was released on $2,500 bail on Thursday.

They are accused of excessively drinking duty-free liquor, smoking, fighting and making threats against the aircraft on a Sungwing flight to Cuba.

Muzikante was kept in custody until Friday because she couldn't produce a surety to satisfy bail conditions on Thursday.

She was transferred from Brampton, Ont., court to Vanier Centre for Women in Milton while her surety dealt with her release papers with the help of a translator.

Upon her release Friday afternoon, she retreated back into the correctional centre to avoid the media, who were told by corrections officials that she has a right to her privacy.
