COLOMBIANS IN CREDIT CARD SCAM DEPORTED, TOLD NOT TO COME BACK
Four of the five Colombians who recently admitted to their involvement in a credit card scam in Barbados have been deported.
The other remains behind bars at HMP Dodds.
John Edward Riano Rodriguez, 34; Sergio Alejandro Infante Pena, 23; Juan Carlos Alvarez Riano, 30; and Valentina Cardona Lopez, 23, have been told not to come back to Barbados.
They were ordered out of the island today when they made their second appearance before Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch in the District ‘C’ Magistrates Court.
After hearing submissions from their attorney Mohia Ma’at, the magistrate imposed a $2 000 fine on Lopez and ordered Pena, Rodriguez and Riano to pay $3 500 each.
The three were subsequently placed in the custody of Immigration officials.
However, the fourth accused, Jorge Luis Cruz Rodriguez, remains on remand accused of indictable offences, including money laundering and forgery.
He is expected to appear before the High Court to answer those charges.
