Canadians charged in Barbados with money laundering

(Barbados Nation) Not even the spirited pleas by two Queen’s Counsel could save Canadians Barry and Barbara Dueck from being remanded to HMP Dodds yesterday, after they appeared before the District “A” Magistrates’ Court on theft and money laundering charges worth nearly BDS$10 million.

Alair Shepherd, QC, and Leslie Haynes, QC, representing Barry and Barbara respectively, separately argued to counter prosecutor Sergeant Ensley Grainger’s six major points objecting to bail for the accused.

But they failed to impress magistrate Deborah Holder, who remanded the pair until Tuesday. Then, they will appear before the District “E” Magistrates’ Court.

The couple, of Coral Cliff, Maynards, St Peter, were jointly charged with engaging in money laundering, in that they disposed of US$2 838 358 (BDS$5 676 716) being the proceeds of crime, to wit, theft of money belonging to Jean Delangis of 411 St Peter’s Bay, Road View, St Peter.

They were also jointly charged that between March 27, 2006 and June 6, this year, they stole US$2 094 939 (BDS$4 189 878) belonging to Robert Richardson of 10 Forest Hills, Royal Westmoreland, St James.

And that between March 27, 2006 and June 6, this year, they engaged in money laundering in that they disposed of US$2 094 939 being the proceeds of crime: to wit theft of money.
