Police Charge Lawyer for Offence

Police Detectives have arrested and charged local lawyer, Charles Wesley Levo, with 21 counts of Conversion and one charge of Money Laundering.

The Police media office says that over the past two months, detectives from the Corruption Squad have been investigating the misappropriation of more than one million dollars by Mr. Levo.

Police allege that the 35 year old Levo took money from a client's trust fund in multiple unauthorized transactions between September 2008 and April 2009.

The offences relate to the sale of a parcel of land in the Western Province.

As a result of the investigations, detectives have executed three search warrants at a number of addresses over the past two weeks, including the Mr. Levo's business premises.

Mr. Levo was arrested this week and charged with a total of 22 offences.
