Teacher reimburses CAPE fees in court

A teacher who was charged with the offence of fraudulent misappropriation  appeared before acting Chief Magistrate Priya Sewnarine-Beharry yesterday at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court.

Aluko Jarvis, 36, of 16 Charles Street, Charlestown, pleaded not guilty to the charge when  it was read to him.

It is alleged that on  November 25, 2011 at King Street and Manget Place  he collected from Lecretia  Pryce $20,000 to pay for her Caribbean Advanced Proficiency  Exams (CAPE) scheduled for May this year.  Instead he allegedly converted the money to his own use and purpose.  The accused, however, paid back the woman her money in court.

The magistrate then asked the woman if she wished to give evidence against the defendant and she responded in the negative. The matter was then dismissed for want of evidence.
