Antigua’s DPP to appear in Jamaican court today for alleged fraudulent conversion


SOURCE JAMAICA GLEANER: Jamaican attorney Anthony Armstrong, who is the director of public prosecutions in Antigua, is to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court today in relation to charges of fraudulent conversion.

The charges  stem from the sale of three properties 18 years ago in Jamaica, in which Armstrong represented the complainant, who was the vendor.

Armstrong flew into the island last week Saturday in relation to the complaint and was charged by the police.

He is on bail in the sum of $500,000 with surety and is being represented by attorney-at-law Hugh Wildman.

Armstrong is contending that he is not guilty of the charges because the proceeds of the sale were paid over to the complainant’s father, who he had authorised to be his agent, while he was incarcerated in the USA.

Armstrong said one of the properties was owned by the complainant and his cousin.

Commenting further, Armstrong said since the complainant came back to Jamaica about two years ago he has been receiving numerous threats from the complainant.

He said the complainant told him that he was going to “dutty up” his name and cause him to lose his job.

The complainant had reported Armstrong to the General Legal Council (GLC) over the matter.

The Disciplinary Committee of the GLC found in February that Armstrong was guilty of professional misconduct for signing a document for a client who was not present.

Wildman said Armstrong was appealing the committee’s ruling in relation to the signing of the document.

  1. Jumbee_Picknee know, when agencies like Interpol bark, dem jump fast to Ras!

    Choski’s case is still open! PM & AG might be hopping like Brer Rabbit & Anansi soon!

    Asot will be on the loose soon enough!

    • @Hmmmmmm:You say,UPP brought him to Antigua. However,your Political Party won the Elections in 2014 and again in 2018.Why did they keep him on as the DPP? They could have sent him packing and appoint someone else. There must be a reason why he was sent on leave and brought back into Antigua. Is it to do the dirty works of the (GBLP) Gaston Browne Labor Party. Then again according to a Senior Member of Parliament for the Antigua Labor Party. The person who was appointed to act in that DPP position is CORRUPTED.

    • @ Hmmmmmm
      The DPP Armstrong does the biddings of Gaston and Cutie.

      He is entrapped. They have kept him on because they have dearth on him. Gaston Brown said that the DPP is corrupt, so he has to do whatever they ask, including charging Harold and Jaqui for some stupid old bus……I hope they will remain in power all the days of their natural lives.
      He is in place to protect them in the future.

    • @Hmmmmm
      UPP brought him to Antigua but in the eight years Labour Government is in power did they find fault with him or did they decide they could make him useful? Do you remember who was responsible for the IHI not going forward? Do you know who is pursuing the appeal of the bus case against the UPP members.
      What did a former Labour Party candidate say about this DPP?

  2. Antigua again. Why this Labour government always involved with some shady people? Is it a case of birds of a feather? AG why won’t you send this man packing? Is he useful to you for whatever reason? You were quick to take him back when he was first convicted. AG you are making Antigua a country with no moral compass. He is damaged goods. If you don’t send him packing, you should go packing.
    Tell this Armstrong guy that when ex-convicts accuse you of stealing their money, especially if they are drug dealers, they don’t threaten to dutty up your name and cause you to lose your job. They threaten something else or just do.

    “Charges of fraudulent conversion”
    Sounds familiar Mr DPP.

    Didn’t your momma tell you that what goes around comes around!

  4. Let’s see if his countrymen Berford will carry this on radio Moscow (ABS) tonight.
    When cutie gleefully declared that the interpol red notice was withdrawn, he didn’t say it was because he agreed to return to Jamaica voluntarily.
    By the way, remember in the infamous whatsapp message from Gaston, he mentioned how corrupt this DPP is? Cutie should ask him to do the honorable thing and resign, but I guess that Satan cannot correct sin.
