Honiara Lawyers Accused of Misappropriating

Two prominent Honiara lawyers who are both accused of misappropriating money they held in trust for their clients have had their cases adjourned for September 14.

Charles Levo is charged with 21 counts of conversion and one count of money laundering.

He is accused of misusing one-point-six million dollars he held in trust for a client.

Mr. Levo is accused of taking money from the client's trust fund in multiple unauthorised transactions from September 2008 to April 2009.

Lawyer Charles Ashley who is facing 29 counts of conversion and one count of money laundering has had his case adjourned because his lawyer wants further information from the prosecution.

He faces charges in relation to the misappropriation of more than one million dollars of a client's money he held in trust.

Both men are on bail and are appearing in the Honiara Magistrates Court.
