Accused attorney Norman Leroy Lynch told police he had the money from the sale of a parcel of land but did not know “where it had gone”.
Lynch, however, said he did not launder the money, adding he helped “a lot of people who were in need”.
This was the testimony of Acting Assistant Superintendent Mark White in Lynch’s trial in the No. 2 Supreme Court yesterday.
White, who was attached to the Fraud Squad at the time, said he applied for a production order which was granted and, armed with it, he went to CIBC FirstCaribbean Bank on Broad Street, where he spoke to a senior bank manager.
He said he returned to the bank and was given a printout of a bank statement relating to the account assigned to Lynch. (HLE)
