Cash Plus trial to start to­day

Jamaica Gleaner - - NEWS -

THE LONG-AN­TIC­I­PATED trial of for­mer Cash Plus boss Car­los Hill is sched­uled to get un­der way in the Home Cir­cuit Court in down­town Kingston to­day.

Hill is charged with fraud­u­lently in­duc­ing per­sons to in­vest, aris­ing from the col­lapse of the multi­bil­lion-dol­lar al­ter­na­tive in­vest­ment scheme that crashed in 2008.

How­ever, up to late yes­ter­day, there was no word on whether the trial would com­mence be­cause of the back­log of cases be­fore the court.

In 2012, the Of­fice of the Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Prose­cu­tions in­di­cated that it was ready to start the trial and would be re­ly­ing on nine wit­nesses.

De­spite this, how­ever, the trial re­mained stalled.
