Magistrate to rule whether Isaac’s case goes to High Court


The former Executive Secretary of the Board of Education will know on May 25, 2017 whether the 18 charges filed against her last year are heading to the High Court.

Magistrate Conliff Clarke heard arguments yesterday on whether there is sufficient evidence for a trial.

Gisele Isaac is charged with corruption, fraudulent conversion and larceny related to salary increases she received at the board between 2009-2014.

The prosecution is arguing that Isaac knew the increases were illegal and used persuasion to convince the board to grant them.

Isaac who is being represented by Justin Simon QC who argued yesterday that the board is authorized to grant the increases.

He said matters such as payment is a matter for the board and not cabinet.

The former Executive Secretary of the Board of Education views the charges as politically motivated and believes she will be vindicated in the end.
