The cou­ple are al­leged to have taken two loans worth 17 mil­lion eu­ros from TT, with­out giv­ing the re­quired guar­an­tees. They each posted 50,000 pounds ster­ling in bail and were or­dered not to leave the coun­try ahead of a sched­uled reap­pear­ance in the same court on Fe­bru­ary 5. Ju­di­cial of­fi­cials have gained ac­cess to bank ac­counts held by the cou­ple in Eng­land, Cyprus and Switzer­land.
