Principal of Brown's Academy, Gerald Brown, who was charged with fraudulent conversion, was granted bail in the sum of $700,000 when he appeared before the Mandeville resident magistrate court today.




Brown was charged after allegedly collecting money from students from the Mandeville institution for Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) fees but didn't pay over the money to the Caribbean Examination Council office.



As a result the students did not receive their timetables and are not registered for the exams.



The principal who has been operating the private institution for more than two years is to report to the police station everyday.



He was also asked to surrender his travel documents.



Brown told the court that he will be giving back the money to the complainants but did not have it today.



The case is set for mentioning again on June 5.
