Teacher charged with fraud
A Kingston teacher was arrested and charged for breach of the Consumer Protection Act by detectives from the Fraud Squad on Friday.
He has been identified as 48-year-old Anthony Adizua, from Bellemount Place.
Reports are that sometime in 2015, a man gave Adizua J$1.5 million to import a motor car on his behalf. Adizua imported a motor vehicle that did not meet the requested standards. As a result, the man returned the motor car with instructions that the vehicle be sold and he be refunded.
It was subsequently revealed that the accused sold the motor car but failed to refund him; he made several attempts to recover his money, without success.
A report was made to the Fraud Squad and, following investigations, Adizua charged. He was granted bail in the Corporate Area Resident's Magistrate Court and is to return on March 18.
