Latest Jamaica News, St James: The trial for Claude Tulloch, a former employee of the Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS), who has been charged alongside Sean Thomas following the unauthorized withdrawal of US$15,000 from an account holder’s bank account, has been postponed.
The case was set for continuation in the St. James Parish Court on Monday, but Tulloch, as well as his attorney Douglas Thompson, were not available.
However, the court was told that Thompson had sent a request to have the execution of the warrant that would have been issued for his client stayed until his next court date.
Presiding judge Sandria Wong-Small subsequently made an order for the execution to be stayed and extended Thomas’s bail until July 30 when the hearing will resume.
Tulloch, who is from Stony Hill, St. Andrew, and Thomas, who is from a St. Catherine address, are facing charges of conspiracy to defraud and breaches of the Cyber Crime Act. Thomas is additionally charged with simple larceny.
The defendants were arrested after a third party transfer was done from an account holder’s bank account.
Tulloch is alleged to have accessed the customer’s account then transferred the funds to Thomas’ account.
Investigations were launched and both men were arrested and charged.
