Man seeks court’s help to get partner draw
A middle-aged man is now relying on the wheels of justice to assist him in getting more than $200,000 he was expecting to receive from a partner draw.
The banker of the informal saving scheme, Carol Brown, was summoned to the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court last Thursday to answer to one count of fraudulent conversion.
It was shared that between June 18 and November 12, 2022, the complainant paid $16,000 weekly to Brown. He indicated in his statement that to date he has not received his draw, which was expected to be $304,000.
But Brown, admitting guilt to the charges, disputed the figure, saying that she owes the complainant $240,000.
"You admit to owing some money, so when are you going to have the money available?" Senior Parish Judge Lori-Anne Cole-Montaque asked.
Brown could not provide a definitive answer but presented $60,000 as first payment.
The matter was referred to mediation and is set for mention on May 10.
