Husband of lawyer implicated in money laundering scheme arrested, charged
The husband of a lawyer implicated in a money laundering scheme has been charged with 10 counts of money laundering.
Real Estate Agent and retired Banker, 66 year-old Terrence Allen of Cherry Gardens, St Andrew was arrested yesterday morning and later charged and taken to court.
He is the husband of Attorney-at-Law, Dawn Satterswaite, who is facing money laundering charges linked to convicted drug dealer Andrew Hamilton.
Satterswaite, along with Janet Ramsay, Paulette Higgins and Ann-marie Cleary, were arrested and charged in December last year based on allegations that they were in possession of millions of dollars in property linked to the convicted drug dealer.
A fifth accused, Andre Hamilton, was arrested in July this year.
The police allege that over an 11-year period starting in 1989, Satterswaite purchased properties valued at close to $500 million for Hamilton.
When Allen appeared before the Corporate Area Criminal Court yesterday, he was granted bail in the sum of $1 million with surety.
He and the five other accused are scheduled to reappear in Court on Friday.
