Weekly Round-up: Possible criminal breaches in CMU saga… Baby snatcher pleads guilty… Appeal against Gayle's payout dismissed

Saturday, July 20, 2019

KINGSTON, Jamaica — Director of Public Prosecutions Paula Llewellyn has found possible administrative breaches and conduct which may have contravened four criminal laws in the investigation of allegations of irregularities involving Ruel Reid and Caribbean Maritime University (CMU).

Her disclosure came a day after CMU admitted that it prepared cheques valued at more than $700,000 to one of Reid's former driver.

Meanwhile, the woman charged in relation to the abduction of a baby boy at the Victoria Jubilee Hospital in Kingston on Thursday pleaded guilty when she appeared in court.

And, an Australian media group on Tuesday lost an appeal against an US$211,000 defamation payout to West Indies cricket star Chris Gayle after claiming he exposed his genitals to a masseuse.
