Manager in court for money laundering
A 48-year-old finance manager at a manufacturing company is expected to appear in the Tunapuna Magistrates’ Court Thursday morning on 88 charges related to money laundering.
It is alleged that between July 2011 and June 2017, the woman who worked with TYE Manufacturing Company in Caroni, misappropriated $1.3 million from the company’s account.
The woman was arrested on Monday morning at the close of a lengthy investigation by officers of the Fraud Squad, led by Snr Sup Totaram Dookhie, with assistance from Sgt Cornelius Samuel, Sgt Damian Thomas, Sgt Hamant Kissoon, and WPC Adams, among several others.
She has since been charged with 32 counts of money laundering, 24 counts of falsifying accounts, and 32 counts of larceny.
