ATL CASE: Proceedings to resume tomorrow
Livern Barrett, Gleaner Writer
The fraud trial of three former executives of the ATL Group of Companies is set to resume tomorrow.
After a nearly four month break, the case was expected to restart this morning, but was adjourned early because defense attorney K.D. Knight is engaged in another case in the Supreme Court.
When the trial was adjourned in July, Knight was cross examining ATL general legal counsel Dmitri Singh.
Another defense attorney in the case Deborah Martin told senior Resident Magistrate Lorna Shelly-Williams that she was prepared to begin her cross examination of Singh if Knight is not available tomorrow.
Former chairman of the ATL Pension Fund, Patrick Lynch, and the former general manager of the fund, Catherine Barber, along with former managing director of Gorstew Limited, Dr Jeffrey Pyne, are on trial for allocating more than $1.7 billion to members of the scheme without Gorstew's consent and using four forged letters to justify the allocation.
