Latest Jamaica News, St James: A St. James man and woman who allegedly stole over J$10 million from a Montego Bay Cambio, after they were given the funds to purchase American currency, had their case deferred to September 9.
Curtis Williams and Dagyene Wilson appeared before the St. James Parish Court on Monday, July 29 on charges of conspiracy to defraud and fraudulent conversion.
The matter was adjourned on Monday for the expert accountants to meet to discuss disclosure, and for the respective experts reports to be reviewed in order that the areas that are an issue could be identified.
On a previous mention date, the matter was adjourned for the attorneys to present skeleton arguments to the prosecution for further disclosure of certain material which the prosecution claimed was not relevant to the matter. Additionally, the prosecution was to present written arguments to say what the defence was requesting was not relevant.
The parties were also sent to mediation to try and resolve the issue. But on Monday, presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small said the matter would have to go to trial if it cannot be resolved through mediation.
Wong-Small subsequently adjourned the matter until September 9 and the defendants bails were extended.
The incident occurred in October 2013 when Williams and Wilson were employed to the Montego Bay Cambio. Wilson reportedly held a managerial position while Williams was employed as an account.
It is alleged that on the day in question, their employer gave them a cheque in the sum of $10,445,000 to purchase United States dollars. However, the foreign currency was not bought and both accused failed to account for the money.
The matter was subsequently reported to the police and the two were arrested and charged.
