Prominent attorney-at-law and Chairman of the opposition Jamaica Labour Party’s legal and constitutional committee, Harold Brady, is in Police custody facing criminal charges.
Brady was charged this afternoon by investigators from the Police Fraud Squad on Duke Street in Downtown Kingston.
This is the second consecutive day that a prominent attorney has been hit with fraud charges.
Yesterday, Attorney Miguel Lorne was also charged with fraud:
A businessman by the name of Jeffrey Panton complained to the Police that Brady conducted the sale of his multi-million dollar property but has not paid over the money.
Speaking to our news center just after 4-four this afternoon defense attorney, Raymond Clough confirmed that charges have been laid against Brady.
Brady was to report to the Police at 9:00 this morning but the attorney turned up at just before two this afternoon.
As he walked quickly into the Police fraud squad office on Duke Street, an expressionless Brady did not respond when our news center asked his response to the allegations against him.
He spent just under two hours in the question and answer session.
Mr. Clough says he cannot comment on whether his client will be stepping down as the chief legal advisor to the labour party.
He says Brady could spend tonight in jail.
Mr. Clough also confirmed that attorney, Abraham Dabdoub is on Brady’s legal team.
