Forty-three-year-old Bank Teller, Radcliffe McLean of Porus Manchester was on Monday February 19, 2018 charged by detectives from MOCA for Conspiracy to Defraud.
McLean joins Deputy Superintendent of Road and Works for the Manchester Parish Council, 31-year-old Sanja Elliott, 27-year-old Carpenter, Dwayne Sibblies, Temporary Works Overseer, Kendale Roberts and Businessman David Harris, on charges of breaching the Larceny Act. Investigations revealed that between January 1, 2014 and June 24, 2016, McLean conspired with Elliott and Sibblies to process fraudulent cheques drawn on the account of the Manchester Parish Council.
In 2016 and 2017, Elliot, Sibblies, Roberts and Harris were arrested and charged following fraud and anti-corruption operations carried out in Central Jamaica by three Anti-Corruption entities. The pre-dawn activities were undertaken by the Office of the Contractor General, Financial Investigation Division and the Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency. These operations were as a result of investigations which unearthed a grand conspiracy and fraud being perpetrated by Elliott and other senior employees of the Manchester Parish Council and their associates. The allegations are that the accused used their positions to misappropriate funds from the Parish Council for their own use.
They will appear in the Manchester Parish Court on Wednesday February 21, 2018.
