An attorney yesterday revealed he had advised Janet Mandeville to report the theft of money from her company, Evan Mandeville Associates, to police.

However, said Queen’s Counsel Michael Griffith, accused Ian Henderson Hunte indicated he was eager to repay the money and that was why he drafted a promissory note for him to sign.

Griffith told the No. 2 Supreme Court Mandeville contacted him in July 2005 about theft of money from the company.

He subsequently had a meeting with her and company accountant John Field and advised them to go to the police.

“I don’t believe they did so at that point in time,” he said. (HLE)
