It’s understood that the DPP ruled that Hollis be charged with fraudulent conversion.
It’s understood that Hollis’ attorney, Peter Champagnie, has written to OCID indicating that his client is available to face questions.
Detectives from OCID reportedly went to the attorney’s law office in New Kingston two weeks ago and were told she had left the island and would return in a week’s time.
Hollis was reportedly retained by developer, Gregory Duncan, in relation to properties in Johnson Hill in Hellshire, St. Catherine and the Rose Garden apartment in Bellvedere, St. Andrew.
She’s accused of collecting in excess of 190-million dollars and only being able to account for 130-million.
Hollis is also accused of visiting the title’s office and placing a lien on properties belonging to Duncan while claiming interest.
In March of this year the Supreme Court ruled that the caveats be removed.
The court also ordered Hollister to hand over land titles belonging to the developer.
The matter was reported to the Police Fraud Squad last October and the file sent to the DPP for a ruling in January of this year.
