The multimillion-dollar fraud case involving former Education Minister Ruel Reid, Caribbean Maritime University president Professor Fritz Pinnock and three other co-accused was adjourned this morning until March 9 next year.

Reid, his wife Sharen, their daughter Sharelle, along with Pinnock and Brown’s Town division councillor Kim Brown-Lawrence are facing fraud and corruption charges in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court.

Their bails were further extended by the court.

The accused were arrested in October 2019 for allegedly defrauding the Ministry of Education and the Caribbean Maritime University of millions of dollars.

The matter was stalled this morning as Reid and Pinnock are before the Judicial Review Court seeking to quash a ruling of Senior Parish Judge Chester Crooks in their fraud case.
