A money manager tied to the local office of an international investment firm is now facing 14 counts of fraud-related charges.
Police say the 37-year-old man from George Town had been appointed as a voluntary liquidator of two funds. The 14 counts of fraud-related offences include theft (2 counts), forgery (2 counts), false accounting (1 count), transferring criminal property (5 counts), transferred criminal property (1 count), converting criminal property (2 counts) and using criminal property (1 count).
We understand the accused is Robert Aspinall, a British national, who was working at Deloitte as a director. It was during that time that a quantity of money was allegedly misappropriated and transferred to another account.
He will be in court next Wednesday (22 June).
