Former Trelawny hotel GM arrested at airport on big fraud rap 

The police are reporting that a Greek national and former general manager of an all-inclusive hotel in Trelawny was arrested at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston on Monday for alleged financial crimes.

Reports are that about 7:40 p.m., the man – who is the holder of both Jamaican and American passports – arrived in the island and was nabbed by investigators from the Constabulary Financial Unit (CFU) of C-TOC and the Financial Investigations Division (FID).

The police said the arrest resulted from an intense investigation into several fraudulent activities involving two major banking institutions.

The suspect reportedly acquired several credit facilities from the institutions, using different Taxpayer Registration Numbers (TRN) and names.

The alleged fraudulent activities are said to date as far back as 2010.

The suspect is to be interviewed in the presence of his attorney, following which charges are expected to be laid against him, said the police’s information arm, the Constabulary Communication Unit (CCU).

The pending charges are:

•             Obtaining credit by false pretense

•             Obtaining money by false pretense

•             Breaches of the Revenue Administration Act

Police investigations continue into the matter.
