A judge has ordered disbarred attorney Harold Brady to give his fingerprint to the police.

The order was made this morning when Brady made his first court appearance since he was arrested last month on a number of fraud-related charges.

In December, detectives from the Fraud Squad charged Brady with defrauding the state-owned Factories Corporation of Jamaica (FCJ) of over $140 million.

He was also charged with defrauding the Jamaica Teachers' Association Cooperative Credit Union of $4 million.

The case was adjourned until May 14 after Brady's attorney, Christopher Dunkley, told the court that he has sought the intervention of the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions in the FCJ case.

He explained that the allegations before the court are the same claims that were heard by a disciplinary panel of the General Legal Council and resulted in Brady being disbarred.

Dunkley says his client has appealed that decision and is to present it's case to the Court of Appeal in March.
