Kern Spencer trial continues today
KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The trial of former junior energy minister Kern Spencer in the Cuban light bulb affair is expected to continue today (Wednesday, December 4) in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s court.
Spencer and his co-accused Coleen Wright are facing the court on fraud and money laundering charges in relation to the distribution of energy saving light bulbs, a gift from the Cuban government.
On Tuesday bank teller D’waine Clarke testified that in August 2007 Wright made lodgements in one day totalling $4.5 million in cash to the Jamaica National Building Society branch in Santa Cruz, St Elizabeth.
When questioned about the source of the funds Wright said it was from another financial institution, the bank teller told the court.
