The Crown has closed its case in the kidnapping trial of businessman Marc Frankson.

This morning Frankson continued his testimony in the Home Circuit Court recounting the circumstances under which he was kidnapped in 2011.

Former policeman Alpheus Wade is on trial for the businessman's kidnapping in June 2011.

Last Friday, Detective Inspector Colin Campbell testified that the police recovered marked money from the motor vehicle belonging to the ex-cop which was reportedly used in the kidnapping case of Frankson.

In a police caution statement presented last Tuesday, Wade confessed that he was involved in the kidnapping of the businessman. 

The accused indicated that he was contacted by two men who told him that they had kidnapped Frankson.

However, he said he told them not to harm the businessman.

Frankson was rescued unharmed 16 hours after being taken.

His captors had demanded US$500,000 for his release.
