Two charged with money laundering

Two men have been charged for allegedly laundering money in the sum of Euro €13,920 and US $48,900.

According to the Roseau Magistrate’s Court, Lee Anthony and Cuthbert Charles were allegedly caught with the said cash in their possession on December 17, 2009 at Bioche.

The men did not plead to the charge since it is an indictable matter which is to be heard at the High Court of Justice before a judge and jury following a preliminary inquiry at the Magistrate’s Court. This inquiry is due to begin on March 8, 2010.

Bail was opened in the sum of $100,000 for both defendants, however only Charles was granted bail.  Anthony was remanded until tomorrow because his surety was not accepted since he lacked the means to stand bail for him.

Some of the conditions of Charles’ bail were that he surrender his passport and travel documents and report to the Coulibistrie Police Station  every Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday between  7 am and 7 pm.

Other conditions of his bail include that he remains housebound everyday from 7:30 pm to 6:30 am for the next 16 days.

If granted bail tomorrow, Charles will be released under the same conditions. He is expected to report to the Roseau Police Station.

Attorney at Law Zena Dyer represented Charles while Dawn Yearwood Stewart defended Anthony.

    I noticed they were charged with money laundering. What I would like to know is in what way they were attempting to launder the money? Because mere trafficking cash does not constitute laundering.

    My first reaction was it Ambrose again or was it Reggie” peepip”& the P.M. This is in the making the cost of their homes compared to the little salaries do not match living standards. With Drugs in the north all the murders left as cold cases money is circulating in DA but in new hands.in our politics toues par toues.Da is a failed state.Our cops will soon be like Mexico’s.
    let’s see the new corruption charges on q95 from January.The bad thing about corruption it’s a down ward slope until the big faux pas comes. Skerrit waiting on you to make that big faux pas then you’ll run to G/loupe living the mansion behind.Make certain those foreign accounts are secure.
    DNO just print as is.
