Formal charges laid against QC Nelson
Jamaican Queen’s Counsel Vincent Nelson has been slapped with three charges relating to bribery and money laundering.
He was officially charged by the Anti-Corruption Investigation Bureau (ACIB) on Thursday for conspiracy to misbehave in public office; conspiracy to engage in money laundering; and conspiracy to bribe.
He appeared before Magistrate Maria Busby Earle-Caddle in the Port of Spain 8th Magistrate’s Court and was granted bail in the sum of $100,000 to cover all charges.
He was also remanded to stand trial at the next sitting of the Assizes.
The State was represented by Director of Public Prosecutions Roger Gaspard.
The charges against Nelson follow the arrests of former attorney general Anand Ramlogan and Opposition senator Gerald Ramdeen on Wednesday.
Both men were named in the conspiracy charges against the Queen’s Counsel.
Investigations are ongoing.
