Accountant, nurse charged with Linden Hospital $21M larceny

An accountant and a nurse, employed at the Linden Hospital Complex, were yesterday jointly placed on $2 million bail when they appeared before Magistrate Sueanna Lovell at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court charged with larceny in connection with a recent alleged fraud at the institution.

The allegations before accountant Delon Saul, 35, and nurse Kenroy Mosely, 34, are that between September 23, 2008 and November 12, 2012, while they were employed in the public sector they stole $12 million, property of the Government of Guyana.

Saul was also charged with a second count of larceny, which stated that between December 10 and December 13, 2012 he stole $9 million property of the Government of Guyana.

The two men, who were both represented by attorney-at-law Adrian Thompson, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Thompson, in a plea for bail for Saul, told the court that his client was not a flight risk since he resides at 668 Industrial Area, Linden and he has no antecedents.

Counsel further stated that his client was first employed at the hospital complex sometime around 1998 as an accounts clerk and worked his way up to become an accountant.

In Thompson’s bail application for Mosley he told the court that his client poses no risk of flight since he lives at 129 Rail River Drive, Watooka, Linden. He said that when his client heard that he was implicated in the charge, he turned himself in at CID Headquarters, Eve Leary.

The lawyer said Mosley has been employed at the hospital complex as a nurse for 10 years.

He said that his client has no pending or previous matters before the court and that he has one child.

Police prosecutor Alexis David-Hossanah objected to the men being granted bail, stating that they are flight risks.

She said that even if the men lodged their travel documents with the police they can still “go back track” because one of them had over $8 million in his bank account, which the police are now trying to freeze.

She said too that the police are trying to seize the men’s vehicles.

David-Hossanah further went on to say that the men could tamper with investigations if released on bail, since the police are currently looking into the matter and more charges are likely to be added.

However, the magistrate granted Saul bail in the sum of $1,250,000 on both charges, while Mosley was granted bail in the sum of $750,000 on his charge.

The men were also told to hand over all travel documents to the police.

They will make their next court appearance on February 25.
