Attorney, associates on money laundering charges to reappear in court Tuesday

Kingston, Jamaica — An attorney-at-law and three other individuals who were jointly charged with several offences under the Proceeds of Crime Act on Friday, December 20, 2013 are scheduled to reappear in the Corporate Area Criminal Court on Tuesday, April 29.

Accused are Dawn Satterswaite, a 55-year-old attorney-at-law of Cherry Gardens, St Andrew, Paulette Higgins, 53, of Norman Gardens, Kingston 2, Janet Ramsay, 50, of Bridgeport, Portmore, St. Catherine and 40-year-old Ann Marie Cleary, of Woodlawn, Manchester.

The Major Organized Crime and Anti-Corruption Task Force (MOCA) and the Financial Investigative Division (FID) assisted by members of the Anti-Corruption Branch, Mobile Reserve and the St Catherine South and Area Three Police Divisions arrested and charged the four during a joint operation in December last year.

The operation was the culmination of a protracted transnational investigation by MOCA and FID into a case of money laundering and other financial crimes, the police said. It was conducted simultaneously in St Andrew, Kingston east, Portmore in St Catherine and Mandeville in Manchester.
