$200,000 bail for lawyer
Prominent attorney at law Philip Vernon Nicholls has been released on $200,000 bail, after appearing in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court today to answer charges of theft and the laundering of more than $500,000.
Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said the 53-year-old former secretary of the Barbados Cricket Association, who was granted bail with two sureties, is to return to court on February 25.
Nicholls, who resides at Dover Mews, Dover, Christ Church, was arrested by members of the Fraud Squad and charged with the two offences earlier this week. (RG)
