Lawyer up for 28 days
Bring proof of ownership.
That was the advice given by Acting Magistrate Manila Renée to money laundering and theft accused, attorney Leroy N. Lynch, his lawyer and those who indicated an interest in signing Lynch’s bail, when they all reappeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
“This will not be a case where persons come into the (witness stand) and swear ‘yes, I own property’. This will be more than that. I require proof of ownership of property and the court will be sending out documents that there is something against those properties (which were put up as surety),” the Acting Magistrate stressed. And once again, because those sureties failed to satisfy the court’s requirements, Lynch was remanded, this time for the full 28 days.
Lynch, 61, of Martindales Road, St Michael, was back before Acting Magistrate Renée after spending the weekend on remand at HMP Dodds.
