The police have charged a fifth person for money laundering in connection with the dealings of confessed Jamaican drug dealer, Andrew Hamilton.



The Major Organised Crime and Anti-Corruption Agency says Hamilton's son, 20-year-old Andre Paul Hamilton, has been charged with breaches of the Proceeds of Crime Act.



He is scheduled to appear in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.



Four women including attorney-at-law, Dawn Satterswaite are already before the courts on money laundering charges in connection with the Hamilton probe.



The other three accused are Paulette Higgins, Janet Ramsay and Ann Marie Cleary, who are all related to Hamilton.



Hamilton, a former postal employee and a former policeman, has pleaded guilty in the US state of California to drugs, money laundering and firearm-related charges and is to be sentenced next February.
