Lawyers representing their colleague attorney Sean Kinghorn are livid over the decision by the police to arrest him.
The 37-year-old attorney-at-law Sean Kinghorn of St Johns Heights in St Catherine was one of three persons arrested and charged by the police with forgery and conspiracy to defraud last Friday evening.
His 26-year-old secretary, Ruth Spencer of Runaway Bay, St Ann, and 64-year-old Linton Campbell, a farmer of a St Catherine address, were also arrested and charged.
All three were granted bail and booked to appear in the Half-Way Tree Resident Magistrate's Court on August 21, 2012.
But yesterday, attorney-at-law Danielle Archer, who is part of Kinghorn's defence team, waded into the police.
"In light of the injustice that was done to my client, it is full time taxpayers stop paying for police damages when they violate citizens' rights," said Archer.
She argued that no forgery or conspiracy took place and it was sad that the charges were brought.
According to Archer, her client has been charged without any legal basis. She said the investigators ignored the advice to seek legal opinion before laying charges.
Archer argued that the facts of the case, which involves the writing of a will for a St Ann woman in 2010, do not support any allegation of forgery or conspiracy to defraud.
She said Kinghorn's reputation suffered irreparable damage and the police should pay for it.
But the police are adamant that enough information has been unearthed for charges to be laid.
Head of the Organised Crime Investigation Division, Superintendent Fitz Bailey, has reportedly said their investigation revealed that there is a case to answer.
