No bail for woman on fraud charge
A 36-year-old woman appeared in court yesterday charged with receiving $5.5 million using a bogus document tendered to the Office of the Prime Minister. Gail Francis pleaded not guilty to the charge when she appeared before Magistrate Christine Charles in the Port-of-Spain Magistrates Court. She is jointly charged with her husband Raymond Francis, who has not yet been arrested.
Attorney Martin George represented Francis. It is alleged that Francis, a housewife of Millford Road, Scarborough, Tobago, and her husband, trading as Francis Rentals Limited, received the sum after tendering a forged document which purportedly emanated from the Office of the Prime Minister to a bank. The offence is alleged to have occurred between March 20 and 22.
Francis was denied bail after the police prosecutor indicated that they had not yet completed a tracing. Francis is scheduled to return to court on Monday.
