Another attorney has been arrested and charged with fraud.

The police say 47-year-old Jade Hollis of Caribbean Close, Kingston 10 was today arrested and charged with four counts of fraudulent conversion.

The police say Hollis was taken into custody at the Norman Manley International Airport upon her return to the island shortly after midday today.

It is reported that she fraudulently collected more than $12 million while she was being retained as a carriage of sales of a real estate company.

Hollis is to appear before the Half-Way Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, May 13.

She is now on bail in the sum of $3 million with surety.

This is not the first time Hollis is being charged with fraud, but the outcome of the previous case could not be ascertained up to a short while ago.

In the past month four other attorneys have been arrested on fraud charges.

They are Miguel Lorne, Harold Brady, Patrick Bailey and Debbie-Ann Samuels
