Prosecution’s Fraud Case Against Harold Brady is Ready

Prosecutors have indicated they are ready to proceed with the fraud trial of disgraced former attorney, Harold Brady.

Brady appeared in the Corporate Area Criminal Court Monday morning. He’s accused of defrauding the Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ) of $142-million.

Presiding Judge, Vaughn Smith, told Brady to return to Court on June 6 for another mention date.

A trial date is expected to be set on June 6. Brady’s bail was extended. He was charged in December last year.

Brady is accused of failing to turn over money to the FCJ following the sale of a property in 2014.

Allegations are he handed over 70-million dollars when the Corporation realized the money from the property sale was not wired to its account as was agreed.

Brady was disbarred in March this year by the General Legal Council (GLC) after he was found guilty of professional misconduct. He was struck from the roll of attorneys following a complaint filed by the FCJ.

Brady is also accused of defrauding the Jamaica Teacher’s Association Co-operative Credit Union of more than $4-million in another botched property deal.
